Fleio 2020.08.1: Angular news, more notifications, minimum size for volumes, default TTL and more

Today, 12th of August, 2020 we have released v2020.08.1. The latest version was published on 2020-08-12 and it’s a stable release.

In the latest release we have lots of new additions coming to the new Frontend, such as:

Navy and Dusk themes

When we first added the new angular frontend we added it only with one default theme, the spring theme.

Lately, since we are closing in on finishing the angular frontend we also added the missing themese.

In order to make them available for your staff users you need to add them in “availableThemes” list present in /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/staff/assets/config/staff.config.json.

The documentation for this step can be found here.

Second factor authentication

Security is a very important feature and since we have started working a new Frontend we also worked in parallel on implementing 2fa for the new frontend.

With the latest release, the staff users will be able to successfully login into the new angular frontend using their preferred 2fa authentication method.

Pages added to the new frontend

Besides the themes and second factor authentication we have also added lots of new pages, like:

  • invoices page
  • users page
  • clients page and clients mass email page
  • forgot password page
  • dashboards with all its widgets
  • domains page
  • servers page and server groups page
  • journal page
  • services page

You can check our public demo in order to test the new pages. The public demo is available here.

New email notifications

In the latest release we have added new notifications, such as:

  • new order
  • invoice payment
  • failed backups

We consider that notifications are a valuable way to be updated when an important event happens in Fleio and most likely we will implement other notifications in the future. Keep an eye on our changelog or contact us if you think there are notifications that are currently not present in Fleio and they should be added.

Minimum volume size option

In the 2020.08.1 version we have added a new option related to the volume size.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-1.png

If you visit the Openstack settings -> Volume size increments you will find out that you can now configure directly the minimum volume size, separately from the volume size increments.

Default TTL

In the latest Fleio release we also added a minimum TTL value for the DNS zones.

This can be configured from settings.py file using the “DNS_ENDUSER_MIN_TTL” variable and will enforce your end users to use a minimum TTL value.

Fleio 2020.08 includes many more improvements and bug fixes. For a full list see the full 2020.08 changelog.

Besides the Angular additions, we have also implemented a minimum volume size option that now can be configured in the Settings -> Openstack -> Volume size increments tab.

In 2020.08.0 we also added a minimum TTL value for the DNS zones. This can be configured from settings.py file using the “DNS_ENDUSER_MIN_TTL” variable.

Fleio 2020.07.1: Automated invoices documentation, new information regarding the staff Angular pages and more

Fleio 2020.07.1 was released. The latest version was published on 2020-07-09 and it’s a stable release.

In the beta release we have first released the automated invoicing feature. This was added in order to help end users with the adding credit process, thus automating this part.

In the stable release we have added a detailed documentation that can be found here.

Before you activate the feature we highly recommend to read trough the documentation, and if you have any question, raise a support ticket.

New informatino on angular pages

In the latest beta release we have published some new angular pages, that are available in the staff dashboard.

We encountered some issues that are now fixed.

The most important one that will also require some changes from the cloud operator part is related to the tickets page.

Please check the upgrade to 2020.07.1 documentation page.

Our demo is already upgraded to the stable release so if you want to check the new angular pages you can do it by accessing the following links:

Important bug fixes

Fleio 2020.07: Automated invoices, new angular staff pages, dashboard changes and more

Fleio 2020.07.0 was released. The latest version was published on 2020-07-02 and it’s a BETA release.

In the latest version we have added a new feature for automated invoices. Using this feature the end user will be able to configure a fixed amount (or have an estimated amount based on current usage) to be always invoiced when he is X hours away of going into negative credit.

This new feature should help end users to avoid getting suspension and thus having downtime.

The number of hours before the client will get the automated invoice generated can be configured in settings.py, default being 120 hours

AUTO_INVOICE_LEAD_TIME_HOURS = 120

New angular staff pages

With the 2020.07.0 release we have added new pages in the new angular frontend (currently available at /newstaff).

The new pages that we implemented are the following:

  • operations page
  • activity log page
  • staff tickets and departments pages
  • todo page
  • revenue reports page

We will continue our work on migrating from AngularJS to Angular in the next releases.

Dashboard changes

In the last few releases we have added a more information in the staff dashboard, so that staff users can have more visibility on when the last process clients cron run.

This also opened new possibilities on improving the dashboard, and we have decided to add more periodic tasks timers in the app services widget:

New settings options

TICKETS_MESSAGES_MAX_SIZE = 1000000
- will increase the tickets (notes included) max characters

'billing.credit_auto_invoicing': True,
- will enable the auto invoicing feature

AUTO_INVOICE_LEAD_TIME_HOURS = 120
- the number of hours before the client will get the automated invoice generated
AUTO_INVOICE_NECESSARY_CREDIT_ROUNDING_PREC = '1'
- rounding precision for the invoiced amount

Fleio 2020.07 includes many more improvements and bug fixes. For a full list see the full 2020.07 changelog.

Fleio 2020.06: Beta release, more angular news, scheduled backups with celery beat and more

Fleio 2020.06.1 was released. The latest version was published on 2020-06-17 and it’s a stable release.

Beta release

Starting with 2020.06 release we are changing the way on how we release Fleio. The first version (2020.06.0) will be a beta one, and will not be pushed to the public repository.

Packages will be available only on demand, so if you are interested in testing the latest changes please open a new support ticket.

Shortly after 2020.06.0 is release, we plan to move on releasing the stable version, which should be 2020.06.1 version.

Fleio settings menu available on angular!

If you were following our latest blog posts you know that we’re currently migrating from AngularJS to Angular.

With the latest release we have now fully migrated the Settings menu to angular. This includes all sub menus.

To be able to access this you need to have angular frontend enabled.

If you want to try the new angular frontend before we release the stable version, you can check our demo.

Scheduled backups with celery beat

Since 2020.05 we have started to migrate the long running tasks (process clients, collect traffic data) from crons to celery beat tasks.

With 20202.06 we have also migrated de scheduled backups.

New settings options

LONG_RUNNING_TASK_TIME_LIMIT = 36 * 3600
The timout limit for long running tasks (mentioned previously)
PRICING_RULE_PRICE_MAX_DECIMAL_PLACES = 8
The number of decimals allowed for prices in pricing rules. We recommend to use maximum 10 decimals.
INSTANCE_PREFERRED_ACCESS_IP_TYPE = 'IPv4'
Before 2020.06, the display IP was the first IP that was assigned to instance. Sometimes, this might had been an IPv6, which is not that human readable. With this option you will be able to force the display of IPv4, if there is one.
OS_ENDUSER_API_FOR_CLUSTER_CREATION = True
Ensures the cluster is created using an api user  when a client creates it

Fleio 2020.06 includes many more improvements and bug fixes. For a full list see the full 2020.06 changelog.
