Changes since Kiwi TCMS 10.4

Improvements

  • Update django-extensions from 3.1.3 to 3.1.5
  • Update django-grappelli from 2.15.1 to 2.15.3
  • Update django-tree-queries from 0.6.0 to 0.7.0
  • Update jira from 3.0.1 to 3.1.1
  • Update markdown from 3.3.4 to 3.3.6
  • Update mysqlclient from 2.0.3 to 2.1.0
  • Update psycopg2 from 2.9.1 to 2.9.2
  • Display a warning if connection doesn't use HTTPS (Ivajlo Karabojkov)
  • Account registration page can be turned on/off via settings. Fixes Issue #2500
  • TestCase Search page can now filter by TestPlan. Fixes Issue #2283
  • Allow template selection when creating new test case. Fixes Issue #957
  • TestCase page now allows specification of properties, e.g. mobile devices on which the test should be executed. This feature serves as a building block for Issue #1843, Issue #1931 and Issue #1344 but isn't active anywhere else inside Kiwi TCMS at the moment
  • TestExecution properties will be displayed inside TestRun page if they have been specified
  • Rearrange help-text in admin page for better visibility
  • Switch to official Postgres image from Docker Hub
  • Switch to official MariaDB image from Docker Hub

Warning:

For Postgres data dir changed from /var/lib/pgsql/data to /var/lib/postgres/data. Environment variables inside docker-compose file changed as well, see docker-compose.postgres.

For MariaDB data dir changed from /var/lib/mysql/data to /var/lib/mysql. MYSQL_CHARSET & MYSQL_COLLATION environment variables are no longer recognized. Instead they are present as command line options passed to the container, see docker-compose.yml. Previous workaround for these variables was also removed.

If you want to migrate from the previous centos/mariadb-103-centos7 or centos/postgresql-12-centos7 containers to mariadb:latest and postgres:latest make sure to update your container control files!

Settings

  • New setting REGISTRATION_ENABLED, default True, Can be controlled via environment variable KIWI_REGISTRATION_ENABLED. When set to False will disable account registration page

Database

  • New model testcases.Property
  • New model testcases.Template
  • New model testruns.TestExecutionProperty
  • Remove unique_together constraint for testruns.TestExecution model. This makes it possible to add multiple executions for the same test case in the same test run

Warning:

These newly added models create additional permission labels with names testcases | template | Can .... template, testcases | property | Can .... property, testruns | test execution property | Can .... test execution property

Execute manage.py refresh_permissions and/or assign them manually to users and groups if they should be able to interact with the new objects!

API

  • Method TestCase.filter() now returns additional fields setup_duration, testing_duration, expected_duration - all serialized in seconds. Refs Issue #1923 (Mfon Eti-mfon)
  • Method User.filter() will no longer return fields groups, user_permissions, date_joined and last_login
  • New method TestExecution.properties()
  • New method TestCase.properties()
  • New method TestCase.add_property()
  • New method TestCase.remove_property()

Bug fixes

  • Unify tab size & tab indentation b/w Python & SimpleMDE. Fixes Issue #1802
  • Use sane_list extension for rendering consecutive lists in markdown. Closes Issue #2511

Warning:

The visual markdown editor explicitly didn't follow markdown syntax rules by allowing indentation with 2 spaces and treating tabs as 2 spaces as well. See "Indentation/Tab Length" at https://python-markdown.github.io/#differences

The backend markdown rendering engine explicitly followed an undefined behavior which happens to be different from what the visual markdown editor does. See "Consecutive Lists" at https://python-markdown.github.io/#differences

The previous 2 changes make sure the visual editor and backend rendering engine follow the same rules. This may result is "broken" display of existing text which doesn't follow the markdown syntax rules. If you spot such text just edit to make it render the way you wish.

  • Fix broken URL and minor updates to documentation
  • Update GitLab tracker integration documentation to avoid confusion. Closes Issue #2559
  • Limit tag input length to 255 characters. Closes Issue #2176
  • Make error notifications in Admin to display with red color
  • Select only visible rows for bulk-update in TestRun page. Fixes Issue #2222
  • Remove Cache-Control header from httpd. Closes Issue #443

Refactoring and testing

  • Add permissions test for add-hyperlink-bulk menu. Closes Issue #716
  • Add explicit tests for issue tracker integration with GitLab.com
  • Tests teardown - remove comments & close issues on GitLab.com
  • Add missing rlPhaseEnd for docker tests
  • Multiple pylint and eslint fixes

Changes since Kiwi TCMS 8.5

Security

  • A high severity vulnerability which allows unprivileged data access via JSON-RPC endpoints has been fixed:
    • Affects all previous versions of Kiwi TCMS
    • Instances on public networks, such as Amazon EC2, are at higher risk
    • Instances on private networks are still vulnerable to anyone who can access the same network
    • This vulnerability has been disclosed by Michael Longmire (ShastaQA) and Stone Pack (ShastaQA)
  • Update marked from 0.8.2 to 1.1.1 for a medium severity vulnerability, see SNYK-JS-MARKED-584281

Improvements

  • Update django from 3.0.8 to 3.0.9

  • Update django-attachments from 1.5 to 1.6

  • Update prismjs from 1.20.0 to 1.21.0

  • Update pygithub from 1.51 to 1.53

  • Replace deprecated bleach-whitelist with bleach-allowlist

  • Make django-extensions a production dependency because it provides many useful manage.py commands

  • Enable syntax highlight for code blocks

  • Remove file attachments when related objects are deleted

  • Add image and file upload buttons to text editor. Fixes Issue #977

  • Require auth.view_user permission when trying to view user profiles. Fixes Issue #1685

  • Multiple pages now explicitly require view permissions before displaying read-only information. This gives administrators a finer grained control:

    • /bugs/<id>/ -> bugs.view_bug
    • /bugs/search/ -> bugs.view_bug
    • /cases/search/ -> testcases.view_testcase
    • /case/<id>/ -> testcases.view_testcase
    • /plans/search/ -> testplans.view_testplan
    • /plan/<id>/* -> testplans.view_testplan
    • /runs/search/ -> testruns.view_testrun
    • /runs/<id>/ -> testruns.view_testrun

    Previously these pages only required the user to be logged in

Warning:

The auth.view_user permission is not granted by default because the profile page contains personal information like names and email address. Administrators can grant this permission on a group or individual basis if they are OK with sharing this information.

Database

  • Migrations which manipulate data (contain RunPython) can now be rollbacked. See ./manage.py migrate --plan for the order in which migrations are applied (Bryan Mutai)
  • Increase Product.name size from 64 to 255 characters

API

  • Remove method TestExecution.create() in favor of TestRun.add_case()
  • Add method User.add_attachment()
  • Multiple API methods now explicitly require view permissions before returning read-only information. This is in-sync with the per-page changes listed above:
    • Bug.filter() -> bugs.view_bug
    • Bug.report() -> testruns.view_testexecution
    • Build.filter() -> management.view_build
    • Category.filter() -> testcases.view_category
    • Classification.filter() -> management.view_classification
    • Component.filter() -> management.view_component
    • PlanType.filter() -> testplans.view_plantype
    • Priority.filter() -> management.view_priority
    • Product.filter() -> management.view_product
    • Tag.filter() -> management.view_tag
    • TestCase.get_components() -> testcases.view_testcase
    • TestCase.get_notification_cc() -> testcases.view_testcase
    • TestCase.filter() -> testcases.view_testcase
    • TestCaseStatus.filter() -> testcases.view_testcasestatus
    • TestExecution.filter() -> testruns.view_testexecution
    • TestExecution.get_links() -> linkreference.view_linkreference
    • TestExecutionStatus.filter() -> testruns.view_testexecutionstatus
    • TestPlan.filter() -> testplans.view_testplan
    • TestRun.get_cases() -> testruns.view_testrun
    • TestRun.filter() -> testruns.view_testrun
    • User.filter() -> auth.view_user
    • Version.filter() -> management.view_version

Bug fixes

How to upgrade

Backup first! If you are using Kiwi TCMS as a Docker container then:

cd path/containing/docker-compose/
docker-compose down
docker-compose pull
docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate

Refer to our documentation for more details!

Happy testing!

Hello testers, we have very important news around how container images for Kiwi TCMS will be distributed! Recently Docker has announced several changes in their storage plans which makes it less viable for our team to continue using their services in full!

Information about official upstream container images

The official upstream Kiwi TCMS container image will continue to be publicly available via Docker Hub as before. In addition all existing and new images will be available via Quay.io. These images are available as

Content is exactly the same between the two registries and you may use the one which you like best!

Warning: after November 1st 2020 older versions will not be available from Docker Hub, only from Quay.io! The reason is that Docker is enforcing a 6 month image retention limit for free plans!

Information about private containers for subscribers

Subscribers enjoy the benefit of having read-only access to tagged versions of the upstream Kiwi TCMS container images as well as access to tagged versions of Kiwi TCMS Enterprise container images! Previously these containers were distributed via Docker Hub and are now available via Quay.io:

  • mrsenko/kiwitcms -> quay.io/kiwitcms/version (version tagged upstream images)
  • mrsenko/kiwitcms-enterprise -> quay.io/kiwitcms/enterprise (enterprise images)

Important: existing subscribers have been notified and granted access to the new repositories on Quay.io. We advise you to update your docker-compose.yml files and start using the new images at your earliest convenience!

Warning: existing subscribers will continue having access to private repositories on Docker Hub until December 31st 2020! Private repositories on Docker Hub will become unavailable after January 31st, 2021 when Docker's new storage plans will be forced into effect!

Why did we chose Quay.io

There are multiple container registry services available! We think Quay.io delivers the best price/quality ratio for our own use-case. In particular we like the billing model around number of private repositories instead the one around the number of users in your organization. That's very similar to how we provide access to Kiwi TCMS via our own subscriptions!

Also it just looks cool if you employ your imagination, especially for non-native English speakers: quay -> qu-ai -> QA!


Thanks for reading and happy testing!
