SUSE Manager/Spacewalk client debug/test shell

an idea by dmacvicar

When developing for SUSE Manager, it gets tiresome to setup clients in order to debug and test with clients. The idea is to create a nice shell (with history, command completion, colors) that allows to simulate being a client.

Static download endpoint for SUSE Manager

an invention by dmacvicar

The download end-point of Spacewalk/SUSE Manager resolves the packages from channels dynamically with a database query. With the integration of Salt into SUSE Manager we have the chance to rethink this.

Taskotop on the web

a project by dleidi

Taskotop is a tool to check what taskomatic is currently doing on a SUSE Manager server: it's a command line python tool. The core of the tool is to get some info about jobs that taskomatic is running with a fixed time cycle running some queries and showing results to the shell.

YaST module for (SUSE Manager) salt parametrizable formulas

a project by dmacvicar

Parametrizable formulas is a normal salt module plus some metadata in order to interactively parametrize them. The metadata is used to automatically generate forms that are then injected as pillar data. See original Hackweek project, SUSE Manager support for formulas blog article and its (internal for now) docs.

SUSE Manager / Salt integration revisited

a project by j_renner

There is a number of possible improvements to the architecture of SUSE Manager / Salt integration that should be investigated in order to improve the reliability and scalability of the backend: 1. Actions are currently scheduled in the minions using the schedule module of Salt. This brings problems with reliability as for instance a minion can be down at the specified schedule time which leads to actions not being executed. Scalability can be an issue as actions being scheduled for many minions might return results to the server at the same time. Instead it might be better to keep control over scheduled actions on the server to allow batching of actions as well as downtimes of minions or even the server. There is a work in progress branch to get started.

My Little Manager

a project by lucidd

Yes this project is yet another project for creating a Suse Manager clone. The motivation for that comes mainly from my need for a simple suse manager that i can easily run at home without the massive overhead involved in suse manager setup. Also since i mainly need to manage opensuse machines most of which are tumbleweed, suse managers repository model does not really work well in that case.

Learning & using Tensorflow to estimate patch installation times on SUSE Manager

an invention by PSuarezHernandez

Introduction

TensorFlow™ is an open-source software library for Machine Intelligence written on Python. It was originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google's Machine Intelligence research organization for the purposes of conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research, but the system is general enough to be applicable in a wide variety of other domains as well.

Clean up the Uyuni frontend stack

a project by j_renner

Many of the Uyuni / SUSE Manager web UIs are still based on the no longer maintained Struts framework (version 1.2!) and implemented as JSP pages, while we added newer features based on the Spark framework and React. For me there is a vision of using only one technology stack (especially just one web framework, frontend framework and template engine) eventually, so it is about time to get rid of the old stack. While this is surely a huge effort, why not start with a new login page and then go from there rewriting other pages one by one? Things to look at in particular:

SUSE Manager - self sufficient frontend server

an invention by LuNeves

Explore the possibility to have a self sufficient frontend server running locally. This server would compile all the frontend code and act as a proxy/middleware pointing either for a dev ref-server or to a local SUMA instance. This way would be possible to do modifications in frontend even without having a SUMA server running locally. http://imagebin.suse.de/2542/img

Teach SUMA to sign repository metadata

an invention by mcalmer

Signing metadata requires a lot of manual interaction and knowledge of the customer. This was the reason why we never implemented it for SUMA as the benefit was very low. Now with the change in the zypp stack to not allow installing unsigned RPMs without user interaction or completly disabling GPG checks the benefit of such a feature increased.

SUMA add test=True for highstate to UI

an invention by mcalmer

First thing you learn, when you start with salt, is to use test=True before you really call the highstate. This is not yet possible from the SUSE Manager UI.

Suse Manager - SPA

a project by LuNeves

The experience while navigating throughout the UI of Suse Manager it's not that nice. Whenever we navigate to a new page, the whole page gets refreshed and recreated, even when half of it didn't change a thing, for instance, the menu, topbar, and the notifications WebSocket connection, which in my opinion doesn't provide a smooth experience. This project has the goal to test out an automatic way to transform the Suse Manager UI into a Single Page Application.

terracumber: python replacement for sumaform-test-runner

an invention by juliogonzalezgil

At SUSE Manager and Uyuni we use right now a set of bash scripts called sumaform-test-runner to run terraform and cucumber, send notifications and store cucumber results. However such scripts are currently hard to maintain and extend, and bash is clearly showing it's limitations when it comes to parsing cucumber results, working with JSON stuff, or using APIs. Besides it forces us to have credentials hardcoded at the main.tf files, which is a huge problem for making a public CI for Uyuni.

Investigate options to introduce Plugins to SUSE Manager

a project by cbosdonnat

For years we have been discussing the idea to modularize SUSE Manager. This would enable developers to create their own extensions to SUSE Manager without needing to touch the core repository. There are several frameworks that could be helping in that direction. The goal here is to create a Proof of Concept with the virtualization features moved into an add-on.

Uyuni/SUSE Manager: build Python APE and a Salt+Python bundle to support ANY client operating system

an idea by pagarcia

Uyuni/SUSE Manager build client tools for each of the supported operating systems: SLES 11, SLES 12, SLES 15, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, RHEL 8, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 9, Debian 10... the list is long. This is required because each operating system has different base libraries (glibc, OpenSSL, Python version, etc). A few months ago, the SUSE Manager development team started a (yet unfinished) research task to try to build Salt and all the required dependencies (minus glibc and OpenSSL, because it would break FIPS certification) so that we can always ship the latest version of Salt on each client operating system:

Uyuni as a Bootstrap theme

an idea by Etheryte

Project Description

Currently, Uyuni has three themes: Uyuni, SUMA light & SUMA dark. All of these are tailored around a common core using CSS preprocessor variables, mainly to switch out colors, fonts and the like. Core layout such as spacing, sizing and so forth is shared between all three and stems from the shared core.

Modern frontend build tooling for Uyuni

an idea by Etheryte

Project Description

At the moment, Uyuni uses a pretty standard frontend build chain based on Webpack 4, Terser, and a few loaders here and there. This works reliably, albeit fairly slowly. In part this may be attributed to large package sizes, in part to the tooling itself.

Uyuni test suite improvements

a project by dgedon

Project Description

Uyuni is the upstream community project from which the very popular SUSE Manager is derived. It uses its own QE test suite wirtten in Cucumber and Ruby. Currently the Uyuni test suite runs with Ruby 2.5.9 which is EOL since 2021. This is because the most current Ruby version for openSUSE Leap 15.4, which the test suite controller runs on, is still Ruby 2.5.9. Updating the Ruby version allows us to modernize the test suite code base and to use more recent Ruby gems that do not support the old Ruby version anymore.

Enhance product migration feature in Uyuni(SUSE Manager) to migrate from regular SLES to SLES4SAP

a project by admehmood

Project Description

Currently, Uyuni(SUSE Manager) offers a product migration feature, but it doesn't support migration from SLE to SLES4SAP. Users are required to run a separate script to perform this migration, which may not be ideal, especially if Uyuni is already installed. Additionally, the script's requirements vary with each service pack.
