CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise 1.6.2

New Features

Minor TIGER-2430

CJE now confirms that a worker is not already part of the cluster before adding it.

Minor TIGER-2118

Allow creation of a support bundle with an ongoing CLI operation.

Resolved issues

Minor TIGER-2640

The support bundle could not include syslogs under certain circumstances. The support bundle now correctly retrieves syslogs.

Minor TIGER-2614

Ensure that ElasticSearch does not run on dedicated build workers, and thus improving the performance of the jobs/pipelines running on those build workers

Minor TIGER-2610

The domain-name-change operation previously required manual intervention to complete. This change fixes the 'domain-name-change' operation such that no manual intervention is required

Minor TIGER-2559

If a volume isn't sized sufficiently, CJE encountered reliability issues as a side effect of the process of resizing a volume. This fix corrects the resizing process for EBS volumes.

Minor TIGER-2531

Ensure that Docker pipeline works out of the box in the Docker agent definition.

Minor TIGER-2463

Fix an upgrade problem when the cluster has some deleted workers.

Minor TIGER-2462

Improve reliability of Support Bundle operation.

Minor TIGER-2419

Nginx access log now show real client IP allowing CJE Admins to diagnose the internal routing issues more accurately

Minor TIGER-2340

Ensure that Zookeeper logs to /var/log/zookeeper on all platforms.

Minor TIGER-2257

Outgoing traffic via UDP port 53 is now permitted in user-provided VPC environment.

Minor TIGER-1693

Ensure credential files are protected with correct permission settings.

Known issues

Major TIGER-2729

OpenStack is not a supported distribution for 1.6.2. We are urging customers to instead use 1.6.3 when it is released due to the support of v2 load balancers and the complexity of upgrading from v1 to v2 for OpenStack LBaaS.

Minor TIGER-2321

Despite the UI allows to change the JNLP port, it shouldn't be done as this is set dynamically by CJE on startup.

Minor TIGER-2355

If you enter an invalid Managed Master image location under the "manage" page on CJOC, then when deploying the new instance, the log window will only show that it's attempting to deploy and will not give any further feedback. Correct the image location to resolve this.

Minor TIGER-2371

CJE allows you to enable using one-shot executors. These provide slightly faster provisioning of the executors. However, the current implementation of one-shot executors doesn't support pipeline resumption.

Minor TIGER-2426

CJE doesn't support installing the Palace Cloud Plugin into masters that are not managed by CJE.

Minor TIGER-2427

When using the operation cluster-recover, it is simpler to keep the cluster in the same AWS availability zone (AZ).

Minor TIGER-2459

The alert "There was an error reporting analytics data" links to an invalid URL within the cluster. You can access this by selecting the "Manage Jenkins" link on the left side of the page.

Minor TIGER-2466

Under certain circumstances, the mesos-slave process can fail to start. When this occurs, it will be impossible for mesos to start processes and containers on that worker.

You can confirm this by ssh-ing into a shell running on the affected worker and running this command

sudo service mesos-slave status 

To resolve this, use these commands in a shell window connected to the affected worker:

sudo rm -r /var/lib/mesos/meta/
sudo service mesos-slave restart
Minor TIGER-2692

The 'list-resources' operation does not work properly on OpenStack.

Minor TIGER-2662

Quoted arguments not handled correctly in CJE CLI.

Minor TIGER-2522

Masters may go off-line during CJOC upgrade.
