[Release] – Provisioning Integration Server (PRIS) 1.1.0

We spent a lot of time during Dev-Jam refactoring the OpenNMS Provisioning Integration Server (PRIS). Most of the refactoring is regarding maven modules and OpenNMS dependencies. We have now a maven module structure for additional sources as opennms-pris-plugins. The dependency to the OpenNMS is slimmed, we build the model for Provisiond from the XSD instead of depending on a quite large opennms-service.jar from the OpenNMS Project.

Poll results for OpenNMS Wiki Theme

The poll for changing the Wiki theme ended yesterday. As everybody can see, only 36 people had really an opinion about it. With 20 to 16 the result is close. In my opinion there is no reason to put effort in changing the Wiki theme to “Vector” as default. If somebody is still interested in this topic is welcome on opennms-discuss.

Feedback is always welcome.

Should we make "Vector" the default theme in the OpenNMS Wiki?

  • yes (56%, 20 Votes)
  • no, leave it as it is (44%, 16 Votes)

Total Voters: 36

[Dev-Jam] Documentation workshop

On OUCE 2014 in Southampton we had a very interesting discussion about how we can improve the documentation off the project. Jeff and Ken where interested to spend time on Dev-Jam on this topic. We had a brainstorming workshop and started draft for possible layout and did some research about state-of-the-art technologies. Currently there exist two parts of documentation one in the OpenNMS Wiki and one in the code base in Docbook format. We discussed some advantages and disadvantages about Docbook and Markdown with the experience from the OpenNMS PRIS project. The documentation in the code base is quite outdated and unused and the only source finding things for OpenNMS is the Wiki. We started a side project to get things sorted out. If you want to get involved in this process, feel free to get in contact with the people on the Wiki project page.

[Release] – OpenNMS emergency security release

This is an emergency security release which fixes a bug that could expose arbitrary filesystem data to logged-in users through the Web UI. Upgrading is strongly recommended.

For details on the issue, see: NMS-6580

Also, a reminder: as of OpenNMS 1.12.7 and 1.13.2, the way OpenNMS starts Jetty has changed, so if you have configured OpenNMS to use AJP, or used other esoteric tweaks to the Jetty configuration in opennms.properties, you will need to adapt them to jetty.xml instead. For details, see: Whats New in OpenNMS 1.12

Thanks

Drools ExpertIn OpenNMS you can use the Correlator daemon which runs Drools Expert. The current version of OpenNMS uses Drools in version 5.1.1. For the Dev-Jam week Markus, Dustin and Jeff spend time together upgrading Drools to the latest version 6.0.1 Final. The update in the code of the Correlator is done. The part in progress right now is to get the JUnit tests green for some rules build in OpenNMS. There was quite a lot of change between the old and the new version.

[Dev-Jam] Feature nodepage outage timeline

NMS-6578: Outage timeline in node detail page.

NMS-6578: Outage timeline in node detail page.

OpenNMS Dev-Jam has started today. Christian Pape started a small feature for showing outages in a more visual way as a timeline graph. This visual component is used on the node detail page. The box with the IP interfaces and services is reworked to have clear distinction for a current outage and an availability degradation. You want to try this? You can use a Vagrant box against the feature branch. Issues and details can be found here:
