    into LMDB files (ENT-4484)
  - 'if' constraint now works in combination with class contexts
  - Added $(sys.cf_version_release) variable (ENT-5348)

  - All changes made by 'files' promises are now reported. Also,
    directory and file creations are now properly reported as 'info'
    messages. And failures in edit_xml result in promises marked as
    failed not interrupted. Purged dirs and files are reported as
    repaired (ENT-5291, CFE-3260)
  - Bootstrap to loopback interface is now allowed, with a warning
  - Client initiated reporting was fixed on RHEL 8.1 (ENT-5415)
  - Fixed rare crashing bug when parsing zombie entries in ps output.
    The problem was only ever observed on AIX, but could theoretically happen
    on any platform depending on exact libc behavior. (ENT-5329)
  - Fixed an issue causing duplicate entries in sys.interfaces, and
    sys.hardware. (CFE-3046)
  - Fixed ifelse() to return fallback in case of unresolved variables
  - Fixed locking of promises using log_repaired / log_string with

    namespace (ENT-5406)
  - Fixed service status cfengine3 on systemd managed hosts
  - Fixed some memory leaks and crashes in policy evaluation (CFE-3263)
  - Improved error message for invalid body attribute names (CFE-3273)
  - Improved management of secondary groups to avoid intermediary state
    failures (ENT-3710)
  - LMDB files are now created with correct permissions (ENT-5986)
  - Log messages about broken Mustache templates are now errors
  - Made classfiltercsv() fail properly on invalid class expression index

  - Moved error reading file in countlinesmatching() from verbose to
    error (CFE-3234)
  - Added new data validation policy functions validdata() and validjson()
  - New version checking convenience policy functions (CFE-3197)
    Added the following policy functions to check against local CFEngine version:
  - cf_version_maximum()
  - cf_version_minimum()
  - cf_version_after()
  - cf_version_before()
  - cf_version_at()
  - cf_version_between()
  - Removed (USE AT YOUR OWN RISK) from cf-key help menu for -x (ENT-5090)
  - Rewrote to use files promises content attribute (CFE-3276)
  - The outcome classes are now defined for the top-level directory when
    'include_basedir' is 'false' (ENT-5291)

  - cf-check: Added validation for timestamps in lastseen.lmdb (CFE-2988)
  - cf-check: Fixed issue causing repair to target the wrong database file
  - cf-check: Symlinked LMDB databases are now preserved in repair
    Performs diagnosis and repair on symlink target instead of symlink.
    Repaired files / copies are placed alongside symlink target.
    In some cases, the symlink target is deleted to repair a corrupt
    database, and the symlink is left as a broken symlink. This is
    handled gracefully by the agent, it will be recreated.
    Broken symlinks are now detected as an acceptable condition in diagnose,
    it won't try to repair them or delete them. (ENT-5162)
  - storage promises managing nfs mounts should now correctly mount
    after editing fstab entries
- drop 0001-Simplify-and-fix-parsing-of-etc-SuSE-release-fixes-i.patch,
  0003-make-home-dir-for-tests.patch - all upstream
* Tue Jul 28 2020 Thorsten Kukuk <>
- Fix version format for suse_version (SuSEfirewall2 check)
* Fri Jun 12 2020 Klaus Kämpf <>
- update to 3.15.0
  - New policy function basename() added (CFE-3196)
  - Added read_module_protocol() policy function
  This function reads module protocol from a file, and can be used
  for caching the results of commands modules. (CFE-2973)
  - The @ character is now allowed in the key of classic arrays defined
  by the module protocol (CFE-3099)
  - nth() policy function now supports negative indices (CFE-3194)
  - Fixed .xy floating point numbers parsing in eval() (CFE-2762)
  - Added inform constraint to commands promises, to allow suppression of
  INFO log messages (CFE-2973)
  - Changed unless constraint to be more consistent with if
  For any situation where if would NOT skip a promise, unless
  will cause the promise to be skipped. When there are
  unresolved variables / function calls, if will skip, unless
  will NOT skip. (CFE-3160)
  - Default minimum allowed TLS version is now 1.1 (ENT-4616)
  - Network protocol version 2 is now called "tls"
  "tls" or "2" can be used in places where you specify network
  protocol. Log messages were altered, to show "tls" instead of
  "latest". (ENT-4406)
  - Introduced protocol version 3 - "cookie"
  This protocol is identical to version 2 ("tls"),
  except it allows the enterprise reporting hub to send
  the COOKIE command to enterprise hosts. This command is used for
  detecting hosts using duplicate identities. Protocol version "latest"
  now points to version 3. For community installations, it should not
  make a difference, policy servers will not send this command. The only
  visible difference is the new version number (in logs and policy).
  - Package modules now hit network when package cache is first initialized
  - Fixed promise skipping bug in unless (CFE-2689)
  - Fixed error message for unexpanded variables in function calls in unless
  - Prevented buffer overflow when policy variable names are longer than
  1024 bytes
  - Zero bytes in class guards no longer cause crashes (CFE-3028)
  - Fixed bug in ps parsing on OpenBSD / NetBSD causing bootstrap to fail
  - Fixed crash in policy/JSON parsing of numbers with too many decimal
  points (CFE-3138)
  - copy_from without preserve now respects destination mode (ENT-4016)
  - Removed stime_range and ttime_range constraints from promise hash
  - Fixed promise result when using process_stop in processes type promises
  - cf-execd now sends SIGKILL to the agent process in case of
  agent_expireafter, after attempting SIGINT and SIGTERM (CFE-2664)
  - cf-serverd now tries to accept connection multiple times (CFE-3066)
  - Fixed multiple measurements tracking growth of same file (ENT-4814)
  - Set create permissions of monitord files in state directory to 0600
  0600 matches the permissions enforced by policy.
  Affected files:
  * state/cf_incoming.*
  * state/cf_outgoing.*
  * state/cf_users
  * state/env_data
  - Clarified descriptions of io_writtendata and io_readdata (ENT-5127)
  - Clarified log message about process_count and restart_class being used
  concurrently (CFE-208)
  - Agent runs that hit abortclasses now record results (ENT-2471)
  - An ID of rhel in os-release file will now define both rhel and redhat
  classes (CFE-3140)
  - Version specific distro classes are now collected by default in
  Enterprise (ENT-4752)
  - redhat_8 and redhat_8_0 are now defined on RHEL 8 (CFE-3140)
  - Added derived-from-file tag to hard classes based on /etc/redhat-release
  - Added sys.bootstrap_id policy variable containing the ID from
  /var/cfengine/bootstrap_id.dat, if present (CFE-2977)
  - sys.interfaces now contains interfaces even when they only have
  IPv6 addresses (ENT-4858)
  - IPv6-only interfaces added to sys.hardware_(addresses,mac) (CFE-3164)
  - IPv6 addresses are now added to policy variable sys.ip_addresses
  - IPv6 addresses now respect ignored_interfaces.rx (CFE-3156)
  - hostname now allowed in bindtoaddress (CFE-3190)
  - Fixed issue when removing comments from files in various policy functions
  This also fixes many erroneous occurences of the error message
  [...] because it legally matches nothing
  (A warning can still appear if a comment regex actually matches nothing).
  Also made this comment removing logic faster.
  Affected functions include:
  * readstringlist()
  * readintlist()
  * readreallist()
  * peers()
  * peerleader()
  * peerleaders()
  * data_readstringarray()
  * data_readstringarrayidx()
  * data_expand()
  * readstringarray()
  * readstringarrayidx()

* Tue Jul 23 2019
- removal of SuSEfirewall2 service, since SuSEfirewall2 has been replaced by
  firewalld, see [1].
* Fri Mar 08 2019 Adam Majer <>
- Update to 3.12.1 (LTS)
  - Added a new binary: cf-check
    + Corrupt local databases (LMDB) continues to be a problem.
    cf-check will be used to diagnose and remediate problems
    with corrupt databases. It is a standalone binary, which
    doesn't evaluate policy or use the local databases, thus
    it can be used in situations where the other binaries
    like cf-agent would hang.
    + cf-check replaces our lmdb database dumper, lmdump.
    + `cf-check lmdump` or symlinking / renaming it to lmdump
    will make cf-check have the exact same behavior as lmdump.
    cf-check will include much more functionality in the future
    and some of the code will be added to other binaries,
    for example to do health checks of databases on startup.
    Ticket: (ENT-4064)

- 0003-Reduce-string-truncation-warnings.patch: refreshed
* Wed Jul 25 2018
- Fix path to executables for sys variables (BOO #1099946)
* Tue Jul 03 2018
- Update to 3.12.0 (LTS)
  New Features:
  - Add a --key-type option to specify RSA key size to cf-key
  - New hash_to_int policy function (CFE-2733)
  - Issue a warning on ignored locking attributes (CFE-2748)

  - Added --log-level option to all components
    This allows you to specify any log level (info, verbose, debug
    It is also less strict, allowing different spelling. As an example,
  - -log-level i, --log-level INFO, --log-level inform are all the same.
  - Added special behavior for bundles named __main__
    If the bundle is defined in the entry policy it will be defined as
    If the bundle is defined elsewhere, it will be removed.
    This makes it easy to make importable library policy which can also
    be executed directly.

  Full changelog at
  New features:
  - Classes promise: allow classes without an expression to default to
  - Add optional interface parameter to iprange() to match only one
  - Allow '=' in symbolic modes (Redmine #7826)
  - Add: FreeBSD ports package module
  - New package module for FreeBSD pkg package manager.
  - Add support for adding/removing fifos in policy
  - Add Linux parsing of /proc/net/ data.
  - sys.inet
  - sys.inet6
  - sys.interface_data
  - Data is returned as a data container.
  - See documentation for more details. (Jira CFE-1991)
  - sys.ip2iface: new reverse mapping variable from IP to
    interface name
  - Namespaced classes can now be specified on the command line.
  - namespaces can now be passed to cf-runagent -D and --remote-bundles
    (Redmine #7856)
  - Add 'cf-full' and 'json-full' to cf-promises '-p' option.
    They generate output based on the entire policy. The existing 'cf'
    already behaved this way, and it has now been changed to generate
    output only for a single file, which the existing 'json' option
    already does.
  - New language functions: processexists() and findprocesses()
    (Redmine #7633)
  - Implement new regex_replace() function. (Redmine #7346)
  - Add log rotation policy for state/classes.jsonl log.
    (Redmine #7951)
  - Added collect_vars utility bundle to stdlib
  - Intoduce report_class_log attribute to body agent common.
    (Redmine #7951)
  - Add standard_services service_method allowing for explicit usage
  - cf-promises --show-vars can now show JSON variables.
  - Add json_pipe mode to mapdata(), which allows piping a
    JSON container to an external program for manipulation and receiving
    JSON back. The jq tool is a good example where this mode can be
    useful. A corresponding $(def.jq) variable has also been added with
    a default path to this tool. See documentation for mapdata() for
    more information and examples. (Jira CFE-2071)
  - behaviour change: "true" is always defined and "false" is never
    defined in a context expression.
  - Add: nimclient package module for AIX
    This module provides basic functionality for using nimclient as a means
    to ensure packages are either present or absent. It does not support
    listing package updates available or provide any special caching.
  - Add callstack_callers() and callstack_promisers() functions.
  - Log variable definitions in debug output. (Redmine #7137)
  - Add: Memory information to host info report (Jira CFE-1177)
  - In Mustache templates, one can now use {{#-top-}} and
    {{/-top-}} tags to iterate over the top level element in a
    container. (Redmine #6545)
  - Add network_connections() function that parses /proc/net
  - Provide new -w argument to override the workdir for testing
  - New feature: Emails sent by cf-execd can be filtered to get
    rid of emails for unwanted log messages. The attributes
    mailfilter_include and mailfilter_exclude in body executor
    control control what to include. See documentation for
    cf-execd for more information. (Jira CFE-2283)
  - Add: file_make_mustache bundle to render mustache templates
  - Add '-n' flag to cf-key to avoid host name lookups.
  - cf-agent, cf-execd, cf-promises, cf-runagent and cf-serverd honor
    multiple -D, -N and -s arguments (Redmine #7191)
  - Add "canonify" mode to mapdata().
  - Add: printfile bodies to stdlib
  - Add: New results classes body [] (Redmine #7418, #7481)
  - Implement cf-runagent --remote-bundles and cf-serverd "bundle" access
    promise. (Redmine #7581)
  - Add commands promise arglist attribute, augmenting args attribute.
  - It's now possible to reference variables in inline JSON,
    for example: mergedata('[ thing, { "mykey": otherthing[123] } ]').
    thing and otherthing[123] will be resolved as variables, since
    they are unquoted. See the documentation for more details.
    (Redmine #7871)
  - Allow inline JSON to be used in the following function calls:
  - data_expand()
  - difference()
  - every()
  - filter()
  - format()
  - getindices()
  - getvalues()
  - grep()
  - intersection()
  - join()

* Fri Apr 15 2016
- Update to 3.8.2
  - Reduce verbosity of apt_get package module (Redmine #7485)
  - Reduce verbosity of yum package module (Redmine #7485)
  - The isvariable() function call now correctly accepts all
    array variables when specified inline. Previously it would not accept
    certain special characters, even though they could be specified
    indirectly by using a variable to hold it. (Redmine #7088)
  - Don't follow symbolic links when copying extended attributes.
  - Fix a bug which sometimes caused package promises to be
    skipped with "XX Another cf-agent seems to have done this
    since I started" messages in the log, most notably in long running cf-agent
    runs (longer than one minute). (Redmine #7933)
  - Fix bug which could render host unable to recover from a
    syntax error, even if was utilized. This could
    happen if the file containing the syntax error was specified in the def.json
    special file. (Redmine #7961)
  - Change: Policy files specified in the "inputs" section of
    def.json will no longer be auto-loaded. One has to refer to the
    $(def.augments_inputs) variable in the policy (the standard
    masterfiles policies include this by default). This only affects
    installations which are not based on the standard masterfiles, and
    which are using the "inputs" field inside def.json. (Redmine #7961)
  - Fix file descriptor leak when there are network errors.
  - Fix cf-serverd error messages with classic protocol clients
    (Redmine #7818)
  - Installing packages containing version numbers using yum
    now works correctly. (Redmine #7825)
  - Fix ps options for FreeBSD to check processes only in
    current host and not in jails
  - fix build failure on FreeBSD 7.1 (Redmine #7415)
  - Show errors regarding failure to copy extended attributes
    when doing a local file copy. Errors could happen when copying
    across two different mount points where the support for extended
    attributes is different between the mount points.
  - Fix classes being set because of hash collision in the implementation.
    (Redmine #7912)
  - Allow def.json up to 5MB instead of 4K.
  - Fix a regression which would sometimes cause "Permission
    denied" errors on files inside directories with very restricted
    permissions. (Redmine #7808)
  - Change: Suppress standard services noise on SUSE (Redmine #6968)
  - Change: classesmatching(): order of classes changed
* Mon Feb 01 2016

  - Upgrade CFEngine dependencies to the following versions:
  - OpenSSL   1.0.2e
  - PCRE      8.38
  - libxml2   2.9.3
  - OpenLDAP  2.4.43

  - Fix two cases where action_policy warn still produces errors
    (Redmine #7274)
  - Parse def.json vars, classes and inputs from the C code. This
    fixes a bug where certain entries in this file would be parsed
    too late to have any effect on the evaluation. (Redmine #7453, #7615)
  - Fix HP-UX specific bug that caused a lot of log output to disappear.
  - Check for empty server response in RemoteDirList after decryption
    (Redmine #7908)
  - getvalues() will now return a list also for data containers,
    and will descend recursively into the containers. (Redmine #7116)
  - Define (bootstrap|failsafe)_mode during when triggerd
    from (Redmine #7861)
* Mon Dec 07 2015
- Update to 3.8.0
  New features/additions:
  - New feature: Bodies can now inherit attribute values from
    other bodies by specifying "inherit_from" with the name of the body to
    inherit from, plus any arguments it accepts. For example:
    body classes myclasses
    inherit_from => classes_generic("myname");
    (Redmine #4309)
  - Add url_get() function. (Redmine #6480)
  - Add @if feature() syntax
    @if feature work like @if minimum_version but allows distinguishing
    between features choosen at compile time.
  - Extend module protocol to create persistent classes.
    To use it, have the module print a line with "^persistence=<minutes>"
    before printing any class names. "persistence=0" goes back to non-
    persistent classes. (Redmine #7302)

    readability, between class names and operators. (Redmine #7152)
  - Add: New results classes body [Redmine#7481] (Redmine #7418)
  - Change: Clarify bootstrap/failsafe reports
  - Change: Improve in-line docs for internal log maintenance
  - Change: Improve efficiency and debug reports (Redmine #7527)

  - Long promiser strings with multiple lines are now
    abbreviated in logs. (Redmine #3964)
  - Change: Reunify Version based policy split

  - Remove /var/cfengine/cf3.<host>.runlog. (Redmine #6957)
  - Change: sys.libdir and sys.local_libdir to non version specific path
  - sys.libdir now resolves to $(sys.inputdir)/lib
  - sys.local_libdir now resolves to lib (Redmine #7559)
  - Moved the following files to /var/cfengine/log/:
  - /var/cfengine/promise_summary.log
  - /var/cfengine/cfagent.<host>.log
  - Change: Seperate binary details from policy update (Redmine #7662)
  - Remove: Support for email settings from augments_file (Redmine #7682)

* Mon Jul 20 2015
- Update to 3.7.0
  See for
  full changelog
  New features:
  - New package promise implementation.
    The syntax is much simpler, to try it out, check out the syntax:
    policy => "absent/present",
    [#] Optional, default taken from common control
    package_module => apt_get,
    [#] Optional, will only match exact version. May be
    [#] "latest".
    version => "32.0",
    [#] Optional.
    architecture => "x86_64";
  - Full systemd support for all relevant platforms
  - New classes to determine whether certain features are enabled:
  * feature_yaml
  * feature_xml
    For the official CFEngine packages, these are always enabled, but
    packages from other sources may be built without the support.
  - New readdata() support for generic data input (CSV, YAML, JSON, or auto)
  - YAML support: new readyaml() function and in readdata()
  - CSV support: new readcsv() function and in readdata()
  - New string_mustache() function
  - New data_regextract() function
  - eval() can now be called with "class" as the "mode" argument, which
    will cause it to return true ("any") if the calculated result is
    non-zero, and false ("!any") if it is zero.
  - New list_ifelse() function
  - New mapjson() function as well as JSON support in maparray().
  - filestat() function now supports "xattr" argument for extended
  - "ifvarclass" now has "if" as an alias, and "unless" as an inverse
  - Ability to expand JSON variables directory in Mustache templates:
    Prefix the name with '%' for multiline expansion, '$' for compact
  - Ability to expand the iteration *key* in Mustache templates with @
  - Canonical JSON output: JSON output has reliably sorted keys so the
    same data structure will produce the same JSON every time.
  - New "@if minimum_version(x.x)" syntax in order to hide future language
    improvements from versions that don't understand them.
  - compile time option (--with-statedir) to
    override the default state/ directory path.
  - Fix error messages/ handling in process signalling which no longer
    allowed any signals to fail silently
  - Also enable shortcut keyword for cf-serverd classic protocol, eg to
    simplify the bootstrap process for clients that have different
    sys.masterdir settings (Redmine #3697)
  - methods promises now accepts the bundle name in the promiser string,
    as long as it doesn't have any parameters.
  - In a services promise, if the service_method bundle is not specified,
    it defaults to the promiser string (canonified) with "service_" as a
    prefix. The bundle must be in the same namespace as the promise.
  - inline JSON in policy files: surrounding with parsejson() is now
    optional *when creating a new data container*.
  - New data_expand() function to interpolate variables in a data container.
  - Add configurable network bandwidth limit for all outgoing
    connections ("bwlimit" attribute in "body common control") . To
    enforce it in both directions, make sure the attribute is set on both
    sides of the connection.
  - Secure bootstrap has been facilitated by use of
    "cf-agent --boostrap HUB_ADDRESS --trust-server=no"
  - Implement new TLS-relevant options (Redmine #6883):
  - body common control: tls_min_version
  - body server control: allowtlsversion
  - body common control: tls_ciphers
  - body server control: allowciphers (preexisting)
- Drop patches, both upstream
