Changes

The following changes have been made in Elvis 5.26:

Asset/update endpoint removed

The '/controller/admin/asset/update' endpoint has been removed and has been replaced by the Asset Processing Tool in the Management Console.

Authkey notify API changed to add subject and body server-side instead of provided over URL

This API is used by the Share client to send out e-mails when approval or import is complete.

`/services/authkey/notifyImportComplete?filesUploaded=10`

`/services/authkey/notifyApprovalComplete`

It can only be used when the URL is called using authkey access.

Improvement in indexing

Improvements have been made to make it less likely that a re-index is required after an upgrade has been performed.

Changes in permission handling

The permission handling on several operations has changed:

  • Moving or renaming assets:
  • A user is allowed to move or rename an asset if:
  • The operation is MOVE and the user has MOVE permission on the source and destination asset
  • The operation is RENAME and the user has RENAME or MOVE permission on the source and destination asset
  • The operation is considered a RENAME when the folderPath (a metadata attribute) of the source and destination asset is the same.
  • Moving or renaming folders:
  • User is allowed to move or rename a folder if:
  • The operation is MOVE AND the user has MOVE permission on the source and destination folder
  • The operation is RENAME AND the user has RENAME OR MOVE permission on the source and destination folder

In addition, the user must have MOVE permission on all assets within the source folder (and all sub folders). The operation is considered a RENAME when the parent path of both source and destination are the same.

  • Removing a folder:
  • A user is allowed to remove a folder if:
  • The user has DELETE permission on the folder
  • The user has DELETE permission on all sub folders and assets within the folder

Fixed issues

LVS-6963 Security: Unexpected behavior of Rename permission.

Clean installation

For information about installing Elvis 5 Server on a system on which Elvis Server is not yet installed, see Installing Elvis 5 Server.

Upgrading an existing installation

When upgrading from Elvis 5.10 or lower to Elvis 5.11 - 5.19 you may run into issues with multi-tiered storage due to a defect in how the order storage-engines are read.

Note: This only applies to storage-engine-config setups where two or more patterns would apply to the same set of files; the files may appear missing.

The 'Recover misplaced asset files' tool can be used to recover files that are stored in the wrong file store. If a file is missing the tool will search known file stores for the misplaced asset file. When none are found the tool will show a warning in the log for further investigation.

About this release

Recent Elvis 5 releases revealed various stability issues at customer installations. In close cooperation with customers and partners we identified the following issues:

  • Unstable cluster startup and restarts
  • Cluster failing under heavy load
  • Failing upgrades
  • Unclear cluster status
  • Improperly working bulk operations (move, copy, delete)

Based on customer feedback we introduced additional tests that replicate real-life customer scenarios, especially targeted at heavy traffic and heavy load testing. The test results helped us in finding proper solutions to fix the issues. The latest test results show a major improvement in Elvis stability resulting in a much more reliable Elvis cluster.

New features

The following new feature has been introduced in Elvis 5.14:

  • Health API. A new Node Health API has been added that is available early during node start-up. This API is experimental at this point and may change in upcoming versions. Do not rely on it yet. Any feedback on the use of this API is appreciated.

Changes

The following changes have been implemented in Elvis 5.14:

  • More predictable and stable cluster discovery. Cluster discovery and coordination no longer relies on Hazelcast, but depends on the Elasticsearch cluster instead. This has proven to be more stable.
  • More explicit cluster discovery configuration. Cluster discovery is still done using the "cluster.join.tcpip.members" config property but to prevent possible discovery problems, usage of wildcards and ranges is no longer supported. The comment for this setting has been updated to reflect this. For details see the node-config.properties.txt file in the folder named 'clean-example-config-5.14' (located in your Elvis Server/config folder).
  • More explicit cluster network configuration. To prevent possible discovery problems, you are now forced to configure the new cluster.network.host config property when a multi-node setup has multiple network interfaces. This property replaces the old cluster.network.interfaces and cluster.public.address settings which have been removed.
  • Simplified AWS cluster discovery configuration. AWS cluster discovery still uses the "cluster.join.aws" config settings, but some settings have been removed. Discovery is now always done by listing the nodes that are in the specified AWS security group(s). Also, the accessKey and secretKey options can no longer be configured. Instead, run your EC2 instances with an IAM security role as advised by AWS. For details see the node-config.properties.txt file in the folder named 'clean-example-config-5.14' (located in your Elvis Server/config folder).

The following settings are no longer supported and will be ignored:

  • cluster.join.aws.accessKey and cluster.join.aws.secretKey
  • cluster.join.aws.tagKey and cluster.join.aws.tagValue
  • cluster.join.aws.fetchTimeout
  • Multicast discovery removed. To prevent possible discovery problems, all "cluster.join.multicast" config settings are no longer supported and will be ignored.
  • Available network ports. Elvis Server no longer uses a range of ports for Elasticsearch and Hazelcast. Instead it uses specific ports for cluster communication. The new set of ports is backwards compatible with the old ranges, so existing network configuration will still work. For more information see Elvis 5 Server network ports.
  • Scheduled plug-in Job Runner configuration. Scheduled plug-in jobs are now only run on nodes that are configured to act as a Job Runner node (jobRunnerEnabled=true). An Elvis cluster will no longer assign a random fallback Job Runner node when none of the available nodes are configured as a Job Runner. Make sure therefore to configure at least one node with jobRunnerEnabled=true.
  • Default number of shards. By default, the number of shards for an index now matches the configured searchNodeCount. This has been changed to improve performance and stability. The new default is not applied to any existing index until its revision is incremented. It is advised to increment the index revision of all indices after you have upgraded to Elvis 5.14 or later from any older Elvis 5 version. For details see the cluster.searchNodeCount setting in the cluster-config.properties.txt file in the folder named 'clean-example-config-5.14' (located in your Elvis Server/config folder).
  • Removed "Coordinator ready" message. An Elvis cluster will no longer assign one node as coordinator. As a result, the "Coordinator ready" message will not be printed in the log during start-up.
  • Cluster upgrade. The automated cluster upgrade procedure now runs in the background and does not block API availability. When upgrading from Elvis 5.0 or 5.1, this may cause issues if connected clients are used before all data upgrades have been performed. Upgrades from Elvis 5.2 or later will likely perform some re-indexing which will impact performance of connected clients.

Note: No cluster upgrade steps are performed when upgrading from 5.13 to 5.14.

  • Removed server_state file. The server_state file is no longer used in Elvis 5.14. Instead the server will not start twice on the same machine because the Health API port will already be in use. On upgrade, any existing server_state file will be removed. Make sure the Elvis service is stopped before you upgrade.
  • Removed Manage Sessions tab. Tracking session to manage them resulted in performance problems at several customers. We have changed the session management to prevent the performance issues. As a side-effect the Manage Sessions admin tab in the Desktop client does not work anymore and has been disabled. This may be re-introduced in a future release.

Comments:

  • LVS-8628: Taxonomy values are now analyzed correctly, based on taxonomy settings. Due to configuration mistakes in the internal analysis config file, tag values were split too often. This behavior has been fixed (see issue LVS-8628) and now complies to the taxonomy settings. For more information about using taxonomies, see Using taxonomy values to populate metadata fields in Elvis 5.
  • LVS-8654: Prevent Desktop client from crashing when selecting the metadata field 'Labels'. The Desktop client did not support the dataType of the metadata field 'Labels'. As a result, any client that added this field crashed and was no longer usable for that user until the profile was removed. .
  • Migration tool v1.1.20. Fixes support for multi-tier configuration when moving files between servers with the "Same server" check box unchecked on export as part of a migration from Elvis 4 to Elvis 5.

The following issues have been fixed in Elvis Server 5.7:

LVS-8325 Search/analyzer: Improve search results for Swiss German Meta-data.

LVS-8507 Processing/AI: Illustrator AI files show different images (art boards) in thumbnail and preview.

LVS-8555 Content source/checking: Check-in of another file type over an EPS file type results in exceptions

LVS-8561 Migration Tool/import: Imported asset data is not obeying multi-tier config.

LVS-8628 Metadata/taxonomy Tags not analyzed correctly resulting in too many tags.

Upgrading an existing installation

Upgrading the Desktop client: The certificate used to build the Desktop client has been renewed in Elvis 5.3.6. When upgrading from Elvis 5.3.5 or earlier, the currently installed Desktop client needs to be uninstalled first before the new version can be installed. When not first uninstalling the previous version, the following error message appears when installing the new version: "The application cannot be installed due to a certificate problem".

Upgrading Elvis Server: for information about upgrading an existing installation of Elvis Server, see Upgrading Elvis 5.

Important note before starting the Server after upgrading from Elvis Server 5.3.7 or lower

The analysis.json file has been removed from the default Config/elasticsearch folder. After the upgrade, the analysis.json file will remain in the Config folder but it will block start-up because it is missing the trimAndLowerCase analyzer.

After upgrading from Elvis Server 5.3.7 or lower, do one of the following before starting the Server:

  • Remove the file from your Elvis config directory if you did not make any customizations to this file. This will prevent future problems as well.
  • If you already have analyzer customizations in place (or when the Server does not start after the upgrade), please contact WoodWing Support to help you reconfigure the analyzers.
