Maintanance release with bug fixes and security enhancements.

No New Features

Bug Fixes
  • Portal Setup - MariaDB issue.
  • Issue editing application url.
  • PORTAL-* charts now use nodePortPrefix variable.
  • Fixed Sonar reported critical issues.
Known Issues
  • AAI UI’s new role “ui_view” is not registered in AAF, Portal cannot fetch it. So, the work around is

    1. upload new role from Bulk Upload in Portal Roles page (create a csv file which has one line like: ui_view,10 )
    2. Sync Roles on same page
    3. Assign this ui_view role to demo account in User page
    4. Then demo user can access AAI UI app from Portal

Upgrade Notes
  • For https Apps onboarded to portal, a certificate has to be downloaded in the browser when first trying to access the landing page of the App.
  • For onboarded Apps using http (since Portal is using https) the browser asks the user to click to Proceed to the unsafe URL.
  • For onboarded Apps using http the icon in the URL bar will appear red, click on it and allow unsafe scripts.
  • The first time some apps are selected in the Applications panel, an error stating the webpage might be temporarily down, copy the presented URL to a new browser; once that is done, the application will open in the Portal.
Deprecation Notes
  • 2.6.0 portal/sdk is the last version to support the old AngularJS UI versions.
  • Expect upgrade on Angular frontend and SpringBoot backend in next releases: The components like Policy, VID, SDC, AAI, MSB, SO – if any of them use portal/sdk java libraries, then please anticipate MAJOR changes to portal/sdk with respect to technology stack upgrade which is pending for long time on Angular frontend and SpringBoot backend.
  • The tech stack upgrade helps resolve many security vulnerabilities and also provides latest rich UI and microservices features that components can take advantage of, just by upgrading to latest portal/sdk.

Known Issues
  • The issue is an application running on HTTPS will not open in Portal if the AAF root CA is missing. An error message will appear in a separate tab in Portal. It will say something like: “The webpage at https://portal.api.simpledemo.onap.org:30200/vid/welcome.htm?cc=…….. might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.” Here is the work-around, copy above VID (or other app) URL and replace welcome.htm to login.htm in a new browser window; after login come back to Portal home page and click VID, it will now work.
  • For applications running on HTTP (for example SDC), the user needs to disable the security check in the browser to access the application.
