Morpheus v5.5.2 Documentation

Important

v5.5.2 includes significant updates to RBAC permissions. Make sure to review the v5.5.2 Release Notes for additional informaiton prior to installing or upgrading.

v5.5.2 Release Notes

  • Compatible Plugin API version: 0.13.4

  • Compatible Morpheus Worker version: 5.4.8

Important

Updates to many plugins have been timed for the release of Morpheus 5.5.2. After completing an appliance upgrade, see share.morpheusdata.com and apply any plugin updates which may be available. Those using a previous version of the Infoblox plugin (prior to 1.1.0) should note that the new version of the plugin will not directly upgrade an existing version. This is because previous versions had an identification code of infoblox2 whereas all future versions will have an identification code of infoblox. This was done to prevent conflicts with the embedded Infoblox integration during early testing which has now concluded. The best upgrade approach is to remove any existing integrations and earlier versions of the plugin, apply the new plugin, and re-create your integrations. If this is not possible, there is a method by which existing pool server entries in the database can be updated for the new version of the plugin. Please contact Morpheus support for assistance with this process and reference this note in your case.

Important

Morpheus v5.5.2 requires Morpheus Worker 5.4.8. Please upgrade any existing Morpheus Workers to the 5.4.8 Worker package to ensure compatibility with Morpheus v5.5.2.

Note

Items appended with 5.x.x are also included in that version

Roles
  • Access to Workflows and Tasks can now be delegated by Role. From the Role detail page, Task and Workflow tabs can now be used to control access for each Role

  • Added a search bar to the Features tab of the User detail page and to the Features tab of the Role detail page. This makes it easy to search for a specific feature permission to determine a User or Role access

  • Added new Role permission Lifecycle: Environment Variables.This was split out from the former Provisioning: Instances permission to increase granularity and handles access to the Environments tab on the Instance detail page, as well as related API functionality

  • Added new Role permission Provisioning: Instances: Add. This was split out from the former Provisioning: Instances permission to increase granularity and handles access to the Add Instances wizard as well as the Add Instances API

  • Added new Role permission Provisioning: Instances: Settings.This was split out from the former Provisioning: Instances permission to increase granularity and handles access to the Settings tab of the Instance detail page. This tab allows for setting SSL Certificates and other settings files. This permission also encompasses the related API actions

  • Added new Role permission Provisioning: Power Control. This was split out from the former Provisioning: Instances permission to increase granularity and handles access to power state controls for Instances and VMs

  • Added paging to each tab on Role detail pages, such as the Instance Types tab, Groups tab, and all other tabs which appear on this page. This improves load performance and searchability of very large lists

  • Improved experience of setting Role permissions by adding categories, permissions descriptions, and global permission toggles to the Role detail page

  • “Provisioning: State” role permission added to control access to the State tab on Terraform Instance detail pages.

  • When approvals are routed through a ServiceNow integration, custom options (name/values pairs) set on the Catalog Item, Instance Type, or Layout are surfaced in the approval request seen from ServiceNow

Settings
  • Added Clients tab to global settings to create a space for managing OAuth client functionality. Add new entries and set the expiration time for any generated tokens. Generate a new token under the created client in the API Access area of User Settings

  • Global logging settings (Administration > Settings) are now shown on the Monitoring tab rather than having their own tab

Softlayer

UI
  • Execute Tasks and Workflows actions from Instance and server detail pages are now typeahead fields due to the potentially large number of Tasks and Workflows in some environments

  • From the Clouds Tab of the Group Detail Page, users can only add and remove existing Clouds for the Group. Users can no longer integrate new Clouds or edit existing Clouds from this page

Usage
  • Calls to the billing API now includes a usages block in the return payload which includes resource information (CPU cores, memory, disk sizes, etc.) for the Instance/VMThis ensures users can access this information for accurate billing even in situations where the associated price types are resource-agnostic (such as “Everything” price types) 5.4.10

Users
  • The tabs on the User detail page (for Group Access, Instance Types, etc.) are all now paged to improve performance and searchability when lists are very long

vCloud Director
  • VMs for multi-node vCD Instances are now created within the same vApp on the vCD side. Previously, a separate vApp was created for each VM 5.4.9

Workflows
  • Added Price phase to Provisioning Workflows. This phase is invoked when the Workflow is tied to a Layout and allows Task logic to override any other pricing (such as on the Service Plan). See the Workflows section of Morpheus docs for a demonstration
