  • Fix issue where win_wua module fails to load when BITS is set to Manual (#58848)
  • Ensure that elasticsearch.index_exists is available before loading the elasticsearch returner. (#58851)
  • Log a different object when debugging if we're using disk cache vs memory cache. The disk cache pillar class has the dict object but the cache pillar object which is used with the memory cache does not include a _dict obeject because it is a dict already. (#58861)
  • Do not generate grains for every job run on Windows minions. This makes Windows conform more to the way posix OSes work today. (#58904)
  • Fixes salt-ssh authentication when using tty (#58922)
  • Revert LazyLoader finalizer. Removed the weakref.finalizer code. On some occasions, the finalized would run when trying to load a new module, firing a race condition. (#58947)

Fixed

  • Prevent shell injections in netapi ssh client (cve-2020-16846)
  • Prevent creating world readable private keys with the tls execution module. (cve-2020-17490)

Salt 3002 (2020-10-19)

Removed

  • removed boto_vpc.describe_route_table please use boto_vpc.describe_route_tables (#58636)

Deprecated

  • The ssh parameter of virt.migrate has been deprecated. Use a libvirt URI target value instead. Both virt.migrate_non_shared and virt.migrate_non_shared_inc have been deprecated. Use the copy_storage parameter with virt.migrate instead. (#57947)

Changed

  • Allow specifying a custom port for Proxmox connection (#50620)
  • Changed the lvm.lv_present state to accept a resizefs switch. So, when the logical volume is resized, the filesystem will be resized too. (#55265)
  • Change the enable_fqdns_grains setting to default to False on proxy minions as it is generally not needed and just slows down start up time.. (#57676)
  • Adds network teaming support to network.managed state for RHEL-based distros. Removes ip.get_bond and ip.build_bond for the same, as is redundant and not needed for any current RHEL/CentOS/Fedora/etc. release. (#57775)
  • The serializer argument has been added to the :py:func:file.serialize <salt.states.file.serialize> state, as an alternative to formatter. This brings it more in line with the serializer_opts and deserializer_opts arguments. formatter is still supported, but using both serializer and formatter will cause the state to fail. (#57858)

Fixed

  • file.read exec module function no longer fails on binary data. (#58033)

  • Remove py2 support from winrepo execution module and runner (#58596)

  • Create ini file if does not exist when using ini.options_present state module. (#34236)

  • Pass cmd.run state arguments to unless and onlyif when they exist (#57760)

  • The 2004 release of Windows 10 introduced a bug in the InstallationBehavior COM object where you can no longer get properties from that object. Calls to this object are now wrapped in a try/except block with sane defaults when it fails to read attributes.

    Additionally, some pre-flight checks have been added to the win_wua module to make sure Windows Update can actually run. (#57762)

  • Changed get_repo in yumpkg.py to use "repo" as first parameter. This fixes #57778, a bug were every run of pkgrepo.managed state were marked as changed because the get_repo did fail to detect a previously applied run. (#57778)

  • Raise SaltClientError in parse_host_port insted of ValueError so it is caught and handled properly when the minion is connecting to the master. (#57789)

  • Fixed issue with the return dictionary from the workgroup() function in the salt.states.win_system module. This resulted in a windows-based minion logging an error and could also interfere with a highstate being applied. (#57790)

  • Fixes broken block_device_mapping and block_device_mapping_v2 type checks in the OpenStack cloud driver. Salt was looking for a dict and the shade library was looking for a list of dicts. This made it impossible to use those params. (#57802)

  • Fixed incorrect parsing of Set-Cookie response headers. (#57829)

  • When using yumpkg, report stdout when stderr is redirected to stdout. (#57862)

  • Fixes an issue on macOS where if you try and restart the macOS using serivce.restart salt-minion it would fail because the service names are different on macOS. (#57878)

  • Leave boot parameters untouched if boot parameter is set to None in virt.update (#58331)

  • Convert disks of volume type to file or block disks on Xen (#58333)

  • Apparently Apple is using both "10.16" and "11" for versioning Big Sur, depending on where you look. The mac_softwareupdate module uses a different regex depending on OS version, and the determination was based on the osrelease_info grain. This results in a Big Sur machine not using the correct regex; osrelease_info[1] is 0 for Big Sur.

    This change simply adds an additional clause to the if statement to handle osmajorrelease > 10. (#58340)

  • Fixed zmq salt-call hang!

    Some objects from the 3rd party module zmq fail to deconstruct if left to the GC when Python exits. This is because the objects get destroyed out of order. This only happens on some platforms like ubuntu 20.04 and some versions of FreeBSD. We fixed this hang by deconstructing all zmq objects in the right order before we exit salt-call. (#58364)

  • Reactor runner functions will now ensure reactor system is available before attempting to run and error out if it is not available. (#58384)

  • Fix enpoint typos (#58416)

  • Make sure we repopulate __utils__ on Windows when a job is run from the scheduler. (#58437)

  • Improved documentation for the LGPO state module (#58521)

  • Remove old documented pending reboot key (#58530)

  • On macOS, skip GUI dialog for Developer Command Line Tools when importing gitfs util. (#58575)

  • Fixing a use case when multiple inotify beacons are defined but when notifications are fired the configuration from the first beacon are used. (#58655)

Added

  • Salt Api

    salt-api will now work on Windows platforms with limited support. You will be able to configure the rest_cherrypy module, without pam external authentication and without ssl support.

    Example configuration:

    .. code-block:: yaml external_auth: auto: saltuser: -.* rest_cherrypy: host: 127.0.0.1 port: 8000 (#49949)

  • Added execution_timeout support to chocolatey.installed state (#50449)

  • Add new verify_ssl option to file modules. This allows a user to not validate the server certificate for HTTPS source and source hash's. (#52663)

  • Added list target type support to the scan salt-ssh roster. (#52675)

  • Added pvresize and lvextend to linux_lvm (#56089)

  • Added COPR option to states.pkgrepo (#57258)

  • Add "get_return" key for onlyif and unless requisites to parse deep module results (#57470)

  • Allow setting VM boot devices order in virt.running and virt.defined states (#57544)

  • Added grains to show the LVM Volume Groups and their Logical Volumes. (#57629)

  • Memory Tuning Support which allows much greater control of memory allocation (#57639)

  • Add output filter to saltcheck to only display test failures (#57788)

  • Description

    Add profile block and profiling of import_* jinja calls.

    Example

    # cat /srv/salt/example.sls
    {%- profile as 'local data' %}
      {%- set local_data = {'counter': 0} %}
      {%- for i in range(313377) %}
        {%- do local_data.update({'counter': i}) %}
      {%- endfor %}
    {%- endprofile %}
    
    test:
      cmd.run:
        - name: |-
            printf 'local data: %s' '{{ local_data['counter'] }}'

    Motivation

    When working with a very large codebase, it becomes more important to trace inefficiencies in state and pillar render times. The profile jinja block enables the user to get finely detailed information on the most time consuming jinja expressions in the codebase.

    Especially as the codebase grows and the amount of minions increases, tracking down expensive expressions becomes imperative otherwise the resource burden for even just maintaining highstate becomes unmanageable. (#57849)

    • Added an execution module for running idem exec modules
    • Added a state module for running idem states (#57969)

  • Adding tests for changes to virtual function for netmiko module. Adding tests for netmiko proxy minion module. (#58609)

  • Added features config option for feature flags. Added a feature flag enable_slsvars_fixes to enable fixes to tpldir, tplfile and sls_path. This flag will be deprecated in the Phosphorus release when this functionality becomes the default. (#58652)

Salt 3001.3

Fixed

  • Properly validate eauth credentials and tokens along with their ACLs. Prior to this change eauth was not properly validated when calling Salt ssh via the salt-api. Any value for 'eauth' or 'token' would allow a user to bypass authentication and make calls to Salt ssh. (CVE-2020-25592)

  • Updated requirement to PyYAML 5.3.1 due to vulnerability in PyYAML 5.2.1. (#58019)

Fixed

  • When running scheduled jobs from a proxy minion with multiprocessing turned off (default) a recursive error occurs as __pub_fun_args is repeated over and over again in the kwargs element in the data dictionary. Now we make a copy of data['kwargs'] instead of using a reference. (#57941)
  • The x509.certificate_managed state no longer triggers a change because of sorting issues if the certificate being evaluated was previously generated under Python 2. (#56556)
  • Added support to lo ip alias in network.managed state by checking if lo inet data from network.interfaces contains label with the name of managed interface. Return status True if match found. (#56901)
  • Redact passwords in the return when setting credentials using win_iis.container_setting (#57285)
  • Fixes issue with cmd.powershell. Some powershell commands do not return anything in stdout. This causes the JSON parser to fail because an empty string is not valid JSON. This changes an empty string to {} which is valid JSON and will not cause the JSON loader to stacktrace. (#57493)
  • Improves performance. Profiling test.ping on Windows shows that 13 of 17 seconds are wasted when the esxi grain loads vsphere before noting that the OS is not a esxi host. (#57529)
  • Fixed permissions issue with certain pip/virtualenv states/modules when configured for non-root user. (#57550)
  • Allow running nox sessions either using our nox-py2 fork <https://github.com/s0undt3ch/nox/tree/hotfix/py2-release>_ or upstream nox <https://github.com/theacodes/nox>_. (#57583)
  • Fixes issue with lgpo.get when there are unicode characters in the hostname (#57591)
  • Fixes issue with virtual block devices, like loopbacks and LVMs, wrongly populating the "disks" or "ssds" grains. (#57612)
  • Due to some optimization the virtual grain was never updated on illumos. Move the fallback in prtdiag output parsing outside the loop that now gets skipped due to the command exiting non-zero. (#57714)
  • Grains module delkey and delval methods now support the force option. This is needed for deleting grains with complex (nested) values. (#57718)
  • Moving import salt.modules.vsphere into __virtual__ so we have access to test proxytype in opts, previously this was causing a traceback when run on proxy minion as __opts__ does not exist outside of any functions. Introducing a new utils function, is_proxytype, to check that the device is a proxy minion and also that the proxy type matches. (#57743)
  • Fixed fail_with_changes in the test state to use the comment argument when passed. (#57766)
  • Adds a fix so salt can run on the latest macOS version Big Sur. (#57787)
  • Fixes UnpackValueError when using GPG cache by using atomic open. (#57798)
  • The gid_from_name argument was removed from the user.present state in version 3001, with no deprecation path. It has been restored and put on a proper deprecation path. (#57843)
  • Fixes dictionary being changed during iteration. (#57845)
  • Fixed bug with distro version breaking osrelease on Centos 7. (#57781)
  • Fixed macOS build scripts. (#57973)
