Table of Contents

Dependencies and Prerequisites

  • Operations Automation 7.4 or a later version.

Important: If you are using the configuration where the Odin Automation provider acts as a CSP Partner, be sure to activate the partner account on the Azure instance before upgrading, as described in https://docs.cloudblue.com/oa/services/azure/7.7/content/Configuring-the-Azure-Application-Instance.htm, Step 2.

Additions and Enhancements

  • Resellers who did not sign a CSP agreement with Microsoft can resell Azure services through a syndication program.
  • Providers can move Azure accounts between different resellers.
  • Providers can cancel Azure subscriptions in Odin Automation without deleting data from the Azure Cloud.
  • When subscriptions are cancelled, providers and users are notified that they need to manually remove their resources from the Azure Portal.

Build 55:

  • The new Microsoft Customer Agreement is supported.

    To enable it, edit the file /usr/local/azure/site/config/config.json on the Azure endpoint node:

    In the line "agreementType": "MicrosoftCloudAgreement", replace "MicrosoftCloudAgreement" with "MicrosoftCustomerAgreement".

  • Microsoft Partner Agreement support. Now, when users purchase subscriptions through Odin Automation, the system checks whether they accepted the terms of the Microsoft Partner Agreement and prompts them to accept them if they did not do it earlier.

    The 'checkMpa' setting in the config.json file can use 5 modes (all mode is used by default):

    • off - MPA check is disabled
    • warn - MPA check is enabled, but doesn' block wizards
    • reseller - MPA acceptance is checked only for resellers
    • partner - MPA acceptance is checked only for partner
    • all - MPA acceptance is checked for both resellers and partners

    If your configuration file doesn't have 'checkMpa' property then you should add it to the main configuration level:

        {
         ...
          "activeEnvironment": <YOUR_VALUES>,
          "integration":  <YOUR_VALUES>,
          "checkMpa": "off",
          ...
        }
    

    You should use off mode for sandbox accounts.

Build 62:

  • The Microsoft Partner Center SDK was updated to process API response status "HTTP 204 No Content" correctly.

  2. We highly recommend that you configure the regular Azure database backup (at least daily) using any DB backup solution.

Upgrade

  • Upgrade is supported from version 7.6 only.

    1. Copy the package to the endpoint node and perform the following commands:

      #unzip -o -d /usr/local /root/odin-azure-distr-7.7.x.zip
      #cd /usr/local/azure
      #python deployment/setup.py upgrade
      
    2. Copy the package to the management node and perform the following commands:

      #unzip -o -d /usr/local /root/odin-azure-distr-7.7.x.zip
      #cd /usr/local/azure
      #python deployment/setup.py upgrade
