1. Foreman 3.1 Release Notes

1.1. Headline Features

1.1.1. Improvements and additions to the new Host Details page

The new Host Details page is no longer experimental, although it is still not the default one. One can change SettingsNew hosts details UI to Yes to make it the default option. There are few new tabs added on this page,

Insights tab

The recommendations are available for the hosts in the Insights tab when using RHEL with a Red Hat cloud subscription. It is feasible to begin remediation for the suggested remedies (if any are available).

Ansible tab

It has the ability to manage Ansible roles and variables. The recurring jobs for the host can also be scheduled from the Ansible tab.

PatternFly 4 Search tab

A contemporary search experience is provided by the new search bar. It’s the beginning of an eventual transition to PatternFly 4 for many UI components in the future.

New Build button and card for BMC Power Management

New modals for a build button and BMC Power Management is available, which improves exprience of new Host Details page.

1.1.2. Descriptions for all of the provisioning templates

Over a hundred new descriptions have been added to provisioning templates, snippets, and scripts to assist users understand particular usage and use them in an effective manner.

1.1.3. New purge:puppet rake task

If you don’t intend to use the Puppet ENC functionality then this rake task can be used to purge Environments, Puppetclasses, Smartclass parameters and Config groups.

1.1.4. Cron job to clean old Audits

A new cron job has been introduced to purge the old Audits on a daily basis. The new Saved audits interval setting allows you to specify the number of days you want to save Audits for.

1.1.5. Provisioning snippets support Puppet 7

The provisioning snippets have been updated to setup Puppet 7 repositories, as well as configure and install packages from those repositories.

1.1.6. Performance improvements for index pages and Host Config Status

The new caching approach speeds up index pages loading while consuming less memory. The Host Config Status is now more efficient, using fewer requests and less memory.

1.2. Upgrade Warnings

1.2.1. Running Foreman on Ubuntu 18.04 dropped

Foreman 2.5 introduced support to run on Ubuntu 20.04. Foreman 3.0 deprecated support for running on Ubuntu 18.04 and Foreman 3.1 drops it. Users are encouraged to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 either on Foreman 2.5 or 3.0.

Note that this is only support to run Foreman and Foreman Proxy themselves on Ubuntu 18.04. Managing Ubuntu 18.04 systems remains supported. See the RFC for more information.

1.3. Deprecations

1.3.1. The :unattended Setting has been deprecated

Historically Foreman has supported the :unattended setting in settings.yaml. Setting it to false is barely tested and has seen various regressions because of that. This setting will be removed in the future and Foreman will behave as if it’s set to true.

The host registration feature can be used to register hosts on Foreman for the sole purpose of an inventory. Refer to the removal RFC for more information.

1.3.2. Running Foreman on EL7

Foreman 2.1 introduced EL8 support and Katello 4.0 (on Foreman 2.4) followed. While it’s currently undecided when EL7 support will be dropped exactly, this is an early notice given the considerable number of EL7 deployments. For fresh installations, EL8 should considered the preferred target. Existing installations should start thinking about a migration plan.

Note that this is only support to run Foreman and Foreman Proxy themselves on EL7. Managing EL7 systems remains supported. See the RFC for more information.
