Upgrading

In this page, you can do as follow:

How to upgrade (docker installation)

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using the docker deployment method. When upgrading Fleio we always recommend you to follow the Recommended upgrade procedure procedure.

To upgrade Fleio to the latest version you need to run the following command:

fleio upgrade

If you want first to check what versions are available you need to run the following command:

fleio updates

If you want to also check for beta versions, you can use the –include-beta (-b) flag:

fleio updates --include-beta
fleio upgrade --include-beta

If you want to upgrade to a certain version, you need to pass the Fleio version. First you should check what versions are available for upgrade:

$ fleio updates --include-beta
Creating fleio_utils_run ... done
Current version: 2021.01.2
Available updates:
2021.03.1
2021.03.0
2021.02.1
2021.02.0

Then you can run the upgrade command using the desired Fleio version:

$ fleio upgrade 2021.02.1

How to upgrade (package installation)

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using system packages. We recommend you to migrate to docker (see Migrate to Fleio docker deployment) as soon as possible. When upgrading Fleio we always recommend you to follow the Recommended upgrade procedure procedure.

To upgrade Fleio just use the system package manager. Some Fleio versions upgrade requires additional steps. See sections below.

Ubuntu

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade fleio-backend fleio-frontend

Centos

yum clean all
yum update fleio-backend fleio-frontend

Recommended upgrade procedure

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using system packages. We recommend you to migrate to docker (see Migrate to Fleio docker deployment) as soon as possible.

When upgrading an existing Fleio installation used in production we recommend you use the following upgrade steps in order to avoid/troubleshoot possible issues:

1. Disable process clients cron

Process client cron is a cron job or periodic celery beat task that processes all clients at repeated intervals and updates client usage, suspends and resume services and so on …

Prior to version 2020.05.0 process clients cron was run as a cron job. Starting from version 2020.05.0 process clients cron is run as a celery beat periodic task. You should disable both since this is documentation is added with 2020.05.0 release.

Disabling the cron job: - edit /var/webapps/fleio/scripts/process_clients_cron and comment out the line containing /var/webapps/fleio/scripts/process_clients_cron by placing a # character at the beginning - wait for any running cron to finish

Disabling the celery beat periodic task: - edit /var/webapps/fleio/project/fleio/fleiosettings/settings.py and add the following line at the end

Note that you should disable any other fleio crons that you are using.

CELERY_BEAT_SCHEDULE = {}

Restart celerybeat:

systemctl restart celerybeat

2. Wait for any running cron processes to finish

This applies to Fleio installations up to 2020.04.3

ps -ef | grep cron

For process client periodic tasks you will need to check in activity log to ensure the task is completed.

3. Create a backup of your Fleio database

This is needed to restore Fleio in case something goes wrong with the update.

4. Create a backup of Fleio file

This is needed to restore Fleio in case something goes wrong with the update. Go to /var/webapps/ and execute

tar -zcvf fleio.2020.03.tar.gz fleio

5. Upgrade Fleio installation

Upgrade Fleio installation using the package managed on the Fleio machine.

6. Check data in Fleio after upgrade

Check data in Fleio to ensure everything is correct after upgrade. Check clients, services, products, client usage and so on until you are satisfied everything is ok.

7. Run process clients on a few clients

Process clients can now be run for specified clients bu using -c arg

cd /var/webapps/fleio/scripts && ./process_clients_cron -c CLIENT_ID

You can use multiple client ids separated by comma.

We recommend to test on a few clients with multiple scenarios like: service is active and it does have credit, service is active but with negative balance, service is suspended, service is terminated and so on. After each run of the cron check to see if the specified clients to see that everything went as expected(check client credit, usage, services …).

8. Enable process clients periodic task

If everything went ok you can enable the process clients cron periodic task by removing the

CELERY_BEAT_SCHEDULE = {}

line from settings.py. Note that this line overrides CELERY_BEAT_SCHEDULE setting in base_settings.py.

If you want to fine tune periodic tasks or enable more than process clients periodic task please see Adjusting the celery beat tasks schedule.

Note that if you prefer to use cron jobs you should leave this line in settings.py and enable cron.

Pre 2021.01.0

Upgrading to 2020.12.1

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using system packages. We recommend you to migrate to docker (see Migrate to Fleio docker deployment) as soon as possible.

In 2020.12.1 we have added the enduser panel in Angular and support for Swift object store. In order to enable Swift object store you need enable the Angular enduser panel so you will need to add the following configuration in the Nginx configuration:

location /new {
    alias /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/enduser/;
    expires -1;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /../enduser/index.html;
}

Finally do not forget to reload nginx using the following cli commands:

nginx -t
systemctl reload nginx

Upgrading to 2021.10.1

In the 2021.10.1 release we have added new filters and modifiers. If you’re upgrading from a previous Fleio version, then you will not be able to configure them until you will add the new filters and modifiers into Fleio.

First, you will have to enable django admin. Please see Django admin.

Next step is to access the django admin, which should be available at {{ your configured frontend url }}/backend/admin

If you are asked to login, then you will have to use your administrator credentials.

Navigate to Billing app -> billing resources -> Instance and in the definiton field, replace all it’s contents with the one from below (has_boot_volume is the new entry that was added).

{
    "attributes": [
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "availability_zone"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "instance_type"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "display_name"
        },

        {
            "type": "integer",
            "name": "vcpus"
        },
        {
            "type": "integer",
            "name": "root_gb",
            "value_size": "g"
        },
        {
            "value_size": "m",
            "name": "memory_mb",
            "type": "integer"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "os_type"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "instance_id"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "tenant_id"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "host"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "has_boot_volume"
        },
        {
            "type": "integer",
            "name": "ephemeral_gb",
            "value_size": "g"
        },
        {
            "type": "string",
            "name": "region"
        }
    ]
}

Save and navigate to Billing app -> billing resources -> Volume and in the definition field replace the contents with the following (related_instance_flavor new entry was added):

Upgrading to 2020.11.1

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using system packages. We recommend you to migrate to docker (see Migrate to Fleio docker deployment) as soon as possible.

With the 2020.11.1 upgrade we have implemented a new log level called FLEIO ACTIVITY and we have redesigned the general logging.

Before upgrading to the 2020.11.1 version you will have to check /var/webapps/fleio/fleiosettings/settings.py to be sure that you have no custom logging setting added. You can do that by running the following command:

grep LOGGING /var/webapps/fleio/fleiosettings/settings.py

If you have any results, you will need to comment or remove those lines.

After that you can proceed with the Recommended upgrade procedure.

However, if you already upgraded and you received an error related to Logging, you can just do the steps from above and then run the update commands again.

Upgrading to 2020.07.1

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using system packages. We recommend you to migrate to docker (see Migrate to Fleio docker deployment) as soon as possible.

New nginx configuration

In 2020.07.1 we have added the Tickets plugin in Angular. In order to properly work you need to add the following tinymce configuration in the Nginx configuration:

location /tinymce {
    alias /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/staff/tinymce/;
    break;
}

Finally do not forget to reload nginx using the following cli commands:

nginx -t
systemctl reload nginx

Upgrading to 2020.05.0

Important

This method works only when you have Fleio installed using system packages. We recommend you to migrate to docker (see Migrate to Fleio docker deployment) as soon as possible.

To upgrade to version 2020.05.0 on Ubuntu 16 and Ubuntu 18 first you will need to run:

apt-get dist-upgrade fleio-backend fleio-frontend

This is necessary due to a new dependency (patch) that was introduced in 2020.05 release. The regular apt-get upgrade fleio-backend fleio-frontend command will not install the dependency and you might get in a state that fleio-frontend is not automatically upgraded.

To upgrade to version 2020.05.0 on Centos you need to run:

yum install fleio-backend fleio-frontend

Besides this, the following additional steps are required.

We are migrating the Fleio frontend from the legacy AngularJS framework to Angular. For a smooth migration we are gradually rewriting and releasing pages from the staff panel in Angular. After the staff panel is successfully migrated to Angular we will do the same for the end-user panel. This is expected to take several months.

The new Angular pages are temporarly located a under the /newstaff URL, while the previous pages remain for now under /staff URL.

New nginx settings

By default some of the staff panel menu options already point to /newstaff links, while the pages that are not yet migrated to Angular will still link to a /staff URL. For instance, one of the first pages migrated to Angular is Settings > Configurations and it links to /newstaff/settings/configurations.

This requires that you add a new entry to your nginx conf, which is usually located at for Ubuntu at /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/{ your domain }.conf and for CentOS at /etc/nginx/conf.d/{ your domain }.conf.

Add this entry in the server configuration after the /staff location.

# identify the following section and leave it unchanged
location /staff {
    alias /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/site/staff/;
    expires -1;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /staff/index.html;
}

# insert below the following lines
location /newstaff {
    alias /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/staff/;
    expires -1;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /../staff/index.html;
}

Reload nginx to apply the change:

systemctl reload nginx

If you have enabled the reseller feature an additional change is required in the nginx config. Replace this section:

# identify these section and delete it
location /reseller {
    root /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/site/;
    expires -1;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /reseller/index.html;
}

Replace with:

# the new reseller directives
location /reseller {
    alias /var/webapps/fleio/frontend/reseller/;
    expires -1;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /../reseller/index.html;
}

Reload nginx to apply the change:

systemctl reload nginx

New menu definition

If you previously changed the menu in constants.js file, you need to re-define the menu
