Description Jiri Belka 2014-01-17 12:52:36 UTC
Description of problem:
Again another odd way where RHEVM keeps files to configure some feature.

This time - mail server - configuration of scheduler.

# rpm -qf /usr/share/ovirt-engine/rhevm-reports.war/WEB-INF/
file /usr/share/ovirt-engine/rhevm-reports.war/WEB-INF/ is not owned by any package

[root@test ~]# cat -n /usr/share/ovirt-engine/rhevm-reports.war/WEB-INF/
     1  # This file will consolidate all the configurable quartz properties
     2  #
     3  # Other properties which didn't need configuration are kept in
     5  quartz.delegateClass=org.quartz.impl.jdbcjobstore.PostgreSQLDelegate
     7  quartz.tablePrefix=QRTZ_
     8  quartz.extraSettings=
    10  report.scheduler.web.deployment.uri=http://localhost:8080/rhevm-reports
    13  report.scheduler.mail.sender.username=admin
    14  report.scheduler.mail.sender.password=password
    16  report.scheduler.mail.sender.protocol=smtp
    17  report.scheduler.mail.sender.port=25

/usr! Should be in /etc! Would it survive upgrade?

I would propose one general configuration file for all similar configuration options, somewhere in /etc/sysconfig. Sorry but mail server configuration could be shared with notifier...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
is32.2 rhevm-reports-3.3.0-28.el6ev.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
configuration is in /usr

Expected results:
/etc, all toys in /etc

Additional info:

Comment 1 Yaniv Lavi 2014-01-19 09:51:54 UTC
We use JRS which packages all it's config in the WAR folder. 
We can not control this and we preserve the user settings in upgrades.
In 3.4 we moved the war from /usr, so no changes will be done there after that.


Comment 2 Gil Klein 2014-01-19 19:33:38 UTC
Reopening for 3.4 so QE will be able to verify it for the next release.

Comment 3 Yaniv Lavi 2014-01-21 09:02:42 UTC

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 1041124 ***

Comment 6 Jiri Belka 2014-01-21 12:22:51 UTC
This cannot be duplicate of BZ1041124 because this BZ is about rhevm-reports and the other bug is about rhevm-dwh.

Comment 7 Jiri Belka 2014-02-13 13:58:54 UTC
jasperreports-server-5.5.0-7.el6 needed for verification (alonbl@ informed).

Comment 8 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-02-13 14:02:36 UTC
(In reply to Jiri Belka from comment #7)
> jasperreports-server-5.5.0-7.el6 needed for verification (alonbl@ informed).

also newer version of ovirt-engine-reports, beta2 did not include something that is usable.

Comment 9 Jiri Belka 2014-02-17 09:03:18 UTC
Please put back to ON_QA when there's new version which fixes the issue. comment#8 clearly states beta2 did not contain the fix. Thank you.

Comment 10 Yaniv Lavi 2014-02-20 12:55:57 UTC
Beta 3 released.


Comment 11 Jiri Belka 2014-03-06 13:48:16 UTC
ok, av2, it's out of /usr now.
