History

3.7.0 (2020-02-20)

Changes:

  • Added a framework for building tasks that extract, transform, and load metadata from a Salesforce org. The initial set of tasks include:
    • add_standard_value_set_entries to add entries to a StandardValueSet.
    • add_page_layout_related_lists to add Related Lists to a Page Layout.
    • add_permission_set_perms to add field permissions and Apex class accesses to a Permission Set.
    • set_organization_wide_defaults to set the Organization-Wide Defaults for one or more objects and wait for the operation to complete.
  • Added a new task insert_record to insert a single sObject record via the REST API.
  • The update_admin_profile task now accepts a profile_name option, which defaults to Admin. This allows the task to be used to update other Profiles. (The task class has been renamed to UpdateProfile, but can still be used with the old name.)
  • Updated to use Metadata API version 48.0 as the default for new projects.
  • Robot Framework: Improved documentation for the API keywords in the Salesforce keyword library.

Issues closed:

  • Fixed the cci error info command. It was failing to load the log from the previous command.
  • Fixed a bug where some error messages were not displayed correctly.
  • Adjusted the Salesforce Robot Framework keyword library for better stability in Chrome 80.
  • Fixed a bug where using SFDXOrgTask to run an sfdx command on a non-scratch org would break with “Must pass a username and/or OAuth options when creating an AuthInfo instance.”
  • Fixed a bug where an error while extracting the repository of a cross-project source could leave behind an incomplete copy of the codebase which would then be used by future commands.

3.6.0 (2020-02-06)

Changes:

  • cci task info now has Command Syntax section and improved formatting of option information.
  • CumulusCI now displays a more helpful error message when it detects a network connection issue. (#1460)
  • We’ve added the option ignore_types to the uninstall_packaged_incremental task to allow all components of the specified metadata type to be ignored without having to explicitly list each one.
  • The FindReplace task now accepts a list of strings for the file_pattern option.
  • If the DeleteData task fails to delete some rows, this is now reported as an error.
  • Robot Framework: Added a new variable ${SELENIUM_SPEED} that is used to control the speed at which selenium runs when the Open Test Browser keyword is called.

Issues Closed:

  • Fixed an issue where existing scratch orgs could sometimes not be used in Windows.
  • Fixed a regression where flow info and task info commands could show an error AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘get_service’ when trying to load tasks or flows from a cross-project source. (#1529)
  • Fixed an issue where certain HTTP errors while running the bulk data tasks were not reported.

3.5.4 (2020-01-30)

Changes:

  • There is a new top level cci error command for interacting with errors in CumulusCI
  • cci gist is now cci error gist
  • cci error info displays the last 30 lines of a stacktrace from the previous cci command run (if present).
  • Changed the prompt users receive when encountering errors in cci.

Issues Closed:

  • Robot Framework: Reverted a change to the select_record_type keyword in the Salesforce library to work in both Winter ‘20 and Spring ‘20

3.5.3 (2020-01-23)

  • Added new features for running Python code (in a file or string) without bringing up an interactive shell. You can now use –python and –script arguments for the cci shell and cci org shell commands.
  • Added support for up to two optional parameters in Apex anonymous via token substitution.
  • The EnsureRecordTypes class is now exposed as ensure_record_types and correctly supports the Case, Lead, and Solution sObjects (in addition to other standard objects).
  • Fixed a bug where the github_parent_pr_notes was attempting to post comments on issues related to child pull request change notes.
  • Fixed various Robot keyword issues that have been reported for Spring ‘20.

3.5.2 (2020-01-21)

Issues closed:

  • Fixed an issue where errors running the cci gist command prompt the user to use the cci gist command.
  • Removed reference to os.uname() so that cci gist works on Windows.
  • Fixed an issue where the dx_pull task causes an infinite loop to occur on Windows.

3.5.1 (2020-01-15)

Issues closed:

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing newlines in output.
  • Don’t show the prompt to create a gist if the user aborts the process.
  • Avoid errors that can happen when trying to store the CumulusCI encryption key in the system keychain using Python’s keyring library, which can fail on some systems such as CI systems:
    • We fixed a regression that caused CumulusCI to try to load the keychain even for commands where it’s not used.
    • We fixed a bug that caused CumulusCI to try to load the keychain key even when using an unencrypted keychain such as the EnvironmentProjectKeychain.
  • Adjusted some keywords in the Salesforce library for Robot Framework to handle changes in the Spring ‘20 release.

3.5.0 (2020-01-15)

Changes:

  • The load_dataset task now accepts a bulk_mode option which can be set to Serial to load batches serially instead of in parallel.
  • CumulusCI now stores the logs from the last five executions under ~/.cumulusci/logs
  • CumulusCI has a new top-level command: cci gist. This command creates a secret GitHub gist which includes: The user’s current CumulusCI version, current Python version, path to python binary, sysname (e.g. Darwin), machine (e.g. x86_64), and the most recent CumulusCI logfile (~/.cumulusci/logs/cci.log). The command outputs a link to the created gist and opens a browser tab with the new GitHub gist. This can be helpful for sharing information regarding errors and issues encountered when working with cci. This feature uses a users GitHub access token for creation of gists. If your access token does not have the ‘gist (Create gists)’ scope this command will result in a 404 error. For more info see: https://cumulusci.readthedocs.io/en/latest/features.html#reporting-error-logs
  • Changed UpdateAdminProfile so that it only deploys the modified Admin profile. While it is necessary to retrieve profiles along their associated metadata objects, we don’t need to do that for deployments.
  • Added options to the deploy task: check_only, test_level, and specified_tests. Run cci task info deploy for details. (#1066)

3.4.0 (2020-01-09)

Changes:

  • Added activate_flow task which can be used to activate Flows and Process Builder processes.
  • Added two tasks, disable_tdtm_trigger_handlers and restore_tdtm_trigger_handlers, which can be used to disable trigger handlers for the table-driven trigger management feature of NPSP and EDA.
  • In the load_dataset task, added a way to avoid resetting the Salesforce Id mapping tables by setting the reset_oids option to False. This can be useful when running the task multiple times with the same org.
  • Added support for a few new metadata types from API versions 47 and 48 in the update_package_xml task.
  • Added a way for Robot Framework libraries to register custom locators for use by the selenium library.

Issues closed:

  • Fixed a bug with freezing the load_data task for MetaDeploy where it would use an invalid option for database_url.
  • Fixed a bug in the github_release_notes task when processing a pull request with no description. (#1444)
  • Fixed inaccurate instructions shown at the end of cci project init.

3.3.0 (2019-12-27)

Breaking changes:

  • Removed tasks which are no longer in use: mrbelvedere_publish, generate_apex_docs, and commit_apex_docs.

Changes:

  • Updated Robot Framework Salesforce library to support the Spring ‘20 release.
  • Added remove_metadata_xml_elements task which can be used to remove specified XML elements from metadata files.
  • Updated references to the NPSP repository to use its new name instead of Cumulus.

Issues closed:

  • Fixed the error message shown when a task config has a bad class_path.
  • Fixed a warning when running the command task in Python 3.8.
  • When the CumulusCI Robot Framework library calls Salesforce APIs, it will now automatically retry when it is safe to do so. It will also avoid reusing old connections that might have been closed.
  • Fixed the -o debug True option for the robot task.

3.2.0 (2019-12-11)

Breaking changes:

  • We upgraded the SeleniumLibrary for Robot Framework from version 3.3.1 to version 4.1.0. This includes the removal of some deprecated keywords. See the SeleniumLibrary releases for links to detailed release notes.

Changes:

  • The Persistent Orgs table shown by cci org list has been renamed to Connected Orgs since scratch orgs will be shown here if they were connected using cci org connect instead of created via the Salesforce CLI. This table now shows the org’s expiration date, if known.
  • Improvements to the retrieve_changes task:
    • The task now retrieves only the components that actually changed, not all components listed in package.xml in the target directory.
    • Changes can now be retrieved into folders in DX source format. The target directory defaults to src if the project is using mdapi format or the default entry in packageDirectories in sfdx-project.json if the project is using sfdx format. (Namespace tokenization is not supported in DX format, since there isn’t currently a way to deploy DX format source including namespace tokens.)
  • Added a task, load_custom_settings, to upload Custom Settings defined in YAML into a target org. See https://cumulusci.readthedocs.io/en/latest/bulk_data.html#custom-settings for more info.

Issues closed:

  • Fixed an issue with how the package upload task logs Apex test failures to make sure they show up in MetaCI.
  • Fixed KeyError: createdDate error when trying to get scratch org info.
  • A rare issue where CumulusCI could fail to load the symbol table for a failed Apex test class is now caught and reported.
  • CumulusCI now displays the underlying error if it encounters a problem with storing its encryption key in the system keychain.

3.1.2 (2019-11-20)

Breaking changes:

  • We changed the default path for the mapping file created by the generate_dataset_mapping task to datasets/mapping.yml so that it matches the defaults for extract_dataset and load_dataset
  • We changed the extract_dataset and load_dataset tasks to default to storing data in an SQL file, datasets/sample.sql, instead of a binary SQLite database file.

Changes:

  • run_tests can now detect and optionally retry two classes of concurrency issues with Apex unit tests. run_tests should always report an accurate total of test methods run, in parallel or serial mode.
  • Added the task generate_data_dictionary. This task indexes the fields and objects created in each GitHub release for the project and generates a data dictionary in CSV format.
  • Added a devhub service. This can be used to switch a project to a non-default sfdx Dev Hub using cci service connect devhub --project
  • Added a predefined qa scratch org. It uses the same scratch org definition file as the dev org, but makes it easier to spin up a second org for QA purposes without needing to first create it using cci org scratch.
  • The database_url option for the extract_dataset and load_dataset tasks is no longer required. Either database_url or sql_path must be specified. If both are specified, the sql_path will be ignored.
  • Developers can now directly execute CumulusCI from the Python command line using python -m cumulusci or python cumulusci/__main__.py

Issues closed:

  • A problem with how run_tests performed Apex test retries when retry_always is set to True has been corrected.

3.1.1 (2019-11-13)

New features:

  • After connecting an org with cci org connect, the browser now shows the message “Congratulations! Your authentication succeeded.” instead of “OK”
  • External GitHub sources can now specify release: latest, release: latest_beta, or release: previous instead of a commit, branch, or tag.
  • The execute_anon task has been revised to detect when a gack occurred during execution.

Issues closed:

  • When importing a scratch org from sfdx using cci org import, the org’s days is now set correctly from the org’s actual expiration date. (#1101)
  • The package API version from cumulusci.yml is now validated to make sure it’s in the “XX.0” format expected by the API. (#1134)
  • Fixed an error deploying new setting objects using the org_settings task in Winter ‘20.
  • Fixed a bug in processing preflight check tasks for MetaDeploy.
  • Fixed path handling in the update_admin_profile task when run in a cross-project flow.

3.1.0 (2019-11-01)

Breaking changes:

  • The metadeploy_publish task now requires setting -o publish True in order to automatically set the Version’s is_listed flag to True. (This is backwards incompatible in order to provide a safer default.)

New features:

  • Python 3.8 is now officially supported.
  • Flows can now include tasks or flows from a different project. See Using Tasks and Flows from a Different Project for details.
  • In the metadeploy_publish task it is now possible to specify a commit hash with -o commit [sha], instead of a tag. This is useful while MetaDeploy plans are in development.
  • Bulk data:
    • Added support for mapping Record Types between orgs (by Developer Name) during bulk data extract and load.
    • Added support for Record Type mapping in the generate_dataset_mapping task.
    • Added new documentation for bulk data tasks.
  • Robot Framework:
    • The sample create_contact.robot test that is created when initializing a new project with cci project init now makes use of page objects.
    • The page objects library has two new keywords, wait for modal and wait for page object, which wait for a new page object to appear.
    • cumulusci.robotframework.utils now has a decorator named capture_screenshot_on_error which can be used to automatically capture a screenshot when a keyword fails.
    • Prior to this change, Go to page  Detail  Contact required you to use a keyword argument for the object id (eg: Go to page  Detail  Contact  object_id=${object_id}). You can now specify the object id as a positional parameter (eg: Go to page  Detail  Contact  ${object_id}).
  • OrgConfig objects now have a latest_api_version property which can be used to check what Salesforce API version is available.

Issues closed:

  • Updated the scratch org definition files generated by cci project init to the new recommended format for org settings. Thanks to @umeditor for the fix.
  • The create_unmanaged_ee_src task (part of the unmanaged_ee flow) has been revised to remove the Protected setting on Custom Objects, to ensure that projects using this setting can be deployed to an Enterprise Edition org.
  • The Salesforce REST API client used by many tasks will now automatically retry requests on certain connection and HTTP errors.
  • Fixed an issue where posts to the Metadata API could reuse an existing connection and get a connection reset error if Salesforce had closed the connection.
  • Disabled use of PyOpenSSL by the Python requests library, since it is no longer needed in the versions of Python we support.

3.0.2 (2019-10-17)

Issues closed:

  • Fixed a bug in deploying email templates and dashboards that was introduced in 3.0.1.
  • Removed broken config_qa flow from the cci project init template.

3.0.1 (2019-10-16)

New features:

  • Added support for new metadata types when generating package.xml from a directory of metadata using the update_package_xml task.
  • The ci_feature flow now supports generating change notes for a parent feature branch’s pull request from the notes on child pull requests. The parent pull request description will be overwritten with the new notes after a child branch is merged to the parent if the parent pull request has a special label, Build Change Notes.
  • When running Apex tests with the run_tasks task, if there is a single remaining class being run, its name will be logged.
  • Apex test failures that happen while uploading a package are now logged.
  • In the robot_libdoc task, wildcards can now be used in the path option.
  • Added an org_settings task which can deploy scratch org settings from a scratch org definition file.

Issues closed:

  • Added a workaround for an issue where refreshing the access token for a sandbox or scratch org could fail if the user’s credentials were new and not fully propagated.

3.0.0 (2019-09-30)

Breaking change:

  • CumulusCI 3.0.0 removes support for Python 2 (which will reach end of life at the end of 2019). If you’re still running Python 2 you can use an older version of CumulusCI, but we recommend upgrading to Python 3. See our installation instructions for your platform.

2.5.9 (2019-09-26)

New features:

  • Added a Domain column to the list of scratch orgs in cci org list. (thanks @bethbrains)
  • Tasks related to Salesforce Communities (thanks @MatthewBlanski)
    • New list_community_templates task
    • New list_communities task
    • New publish_community task
    • The create_community task can now be used to create a community with no URL prefix, as long as one does not already exist.
  • Robot Framework:
    • Added keywords for generating a collection of sObjects according to a template:
      • Generate Test Data
      • Salesforce Collection Insert
      • Salesforce Collection Update
    • Changes to Page Objects:
      • More than one page object can be loaded at once. Once loaded, the keywords of a page object remain visible in the suite. Robot will give priority to keywords in the reverse order in which they were imported.
      • There is a new keyword, Log Current Page Object, which can be useful to see information about the most recently loaded page object.
      • There is a new keyword, Get Page Object, which will return the robot library for a given page object. This can be used in other keywords to access keywords from another page object if necessary.
      • The Go To Page keyword will now automatically load the page object for the given page.
    • Added a basic debugger for Robot tests. It can be enabled using the -o debug True option to the robot task.
  • Added support for deploying new metadata types ProfilePasswordPolicy and ProfileSessionSetting.

Issues closed:

  • Fixed a bug where the batch_apex_wait task would sometimes fail to conclude that the batch was complete.
  • Fixed a bug in rendering tables in Python 2.

2.5.8 (2019-09-13)

New features:

  • LoadData now supports the key action: update to perform a Bulk API update job
  • LoadData now supports an after: <step name> on a lookup entry to defer updating that lookup until a dependent sObject step is completed.
  • GenerateMapping now handles self-lookups and reference cycles by generating after: markers wherever needed.

Issues closed:

  • Patch selenium to convert executeScript to executeAsyncScript. This is a workaround for the executeScript issue in chromedriver 77.
  • A small issue in QueryData affecting mappings using oid_as_pk: False has been fixed.

2.5.7 (2019-09-03)

Breaking changes:

  • The retries, retry_interval, and retry_interval_add options have been removed from the run_tests task. These were misleading as they did not actually retry failing tests.

New features:

  • The run_tests task now supports a retry_failures parameter. This is a list of regular expressions to match against each unit test failure’s message and stack trace; if all failing tests match, the failing tests will be retried serially. Set retry_always to True to trigger this behavior when any failure matches.
  • There is now a default CumulusCI global connected app that can be used to connect to persistent orgs (assuming you know the credentials) without creating a new connected app. It’s still possible to configure a custom connected app using cci service connect connected_app if more control over the connected app settings is needed.
  • When CumulusCI is being run in a non-interactive context it can now obtain an access token for a persistent org using a JWT instead of a refresh token. This approach is used if the SFDX_CLIENT_ID and SFDX_HUB_KEY environment variables are set. This makes it easier to manage persistent org connections in the context of a hosted service because it’s possible to replace the connected app’s certificate without needing to obtain new refresh tokens for each org.

Issues closed:

  • Fixed a bug where showing the summary of flow steps would break with sub-steps in MetaDeploy.
  • Fixed a bug in the caching of preflight task results in MetaDeploy.

2.5.6 (2019-08-15)

New features:

  • We’ve changed how the output of some commands are displayed in tables. For users that prefer simpler style tables we’ve added a --plain option to approximate the previous behavior. To permanently set this option, add this in ~/.cumulusci/cumulusci.yml:

    cli:
        plain_output: True
    
  • Added additional info to the cci version command, including the Python version, an upgrade check, and a warning on Python 2.

  • Improved the summary of flow steps that is shown at the start of running a flow.

  • The github_release_notes task now has an include_empty option to include links to pull requests that have no release notes. This is enabled by default when this task is called as part of the release_beta flow.

  • Robot Framework:

    • Added locators file to support the Winter ‘20 release of Salesforce.
    • New robot_lint task to check for common problems in Robot Framework test suites.
    • The Open Test Browser keyword will now log details about the browser.
    • Added a new keyword to the CumulusCI library, Get Community Info. It can be used to get information about a Community by name via the Salesforce API.

Issues closed:

  • Added workarounds for some intermittent 401 errors when authenticating to the GitHub API as a GitHub App.
  • cci org info shouldn’t show traceback if the org isn’t found (#1023)

2.5.5 (2019-07-31)

New features:

  • Add the cci org shell command, which opens a Python shell pre-populated with a simple_salesforce session on the selected org (as sf).
  • The cci flow info command now shows nested subflows.
  • Added the create_community task allowing for API-based Community creation.
  • Added the generate_dataset_mapping task to generate a Bulk Data mapping file for a package.
  • CumulusCI can now authenticate for GitHub API calls as either a user or an app. The latter is for use when CumulusCI is used as part of a hosted service.
  • The OrgConfig object now provides access to the Organization SObject data via the organization_sobject attribute.

Issues closed:

  • The install_regression flow now upgrades to the latest beta from the most recent final release instead of from the previous final release.
  • Made sure that an errorMessage returned from a metadata API deploy will be reported.
  • The load_dataset task will now stop with an exception if any records fail during the load operation.

2.5.4 (2019-07-03)

  • Updated the default API version for new projects to 46.0
  • Fixed a bug in reporting scratch org creation errors encountered while running a flow.
  • Fixed the snapshot_changes and list_changes tasks to avoid breaking when the last revision number of a component is null.

2.5.3 (2019-06-24)

Breaking changes:

  • Added two new options to the UpdateDependencies task:

    • allow_newer: If the org already has a newer release, use it. Defaults to True.
    • allow_uninstalls: Allow uninstalling a beta release or newer final release if needed in order to install the requested version. Defaults to False.

    These defaults are a change from prior behavior since uninstalling packages is not commonly needed when working with scratch orgs, and it is potentially destructive.

New features:

  • Added support for defining and evaluating preflight checks for MetaDeploy plans.
  • The tasks for bulk data extract and load are now configured by default as extract_data and load_data.
  • Updated the project template created by cci project init:
    • Added .gitignore, README.md, and a template for GitHub pull requests
    • Added an option to store metadata in DX source format
    • Added a sample mapping.yml for the bulk data tasks
    • Specify the currently installed CumulusCI version as the project’s minimum_cumulusci_version
    • Check to make sure the project name only contains supported characters
  • The robot_libdoc task can now generate documentation for Robot Framework page objects.

Issues fixed:

  • Colors in terminal output are now displayed correctly in Windows. (#813)
  • cci no longer prints tracebacks when a flow or task is not found. Additionally, it will suggest a name if a close enough match can be found. (#960)
  • Fixed UnicodeDecodeError when reading output from subprocesses if the console encoding is different from Python’s preferred file encoding.
  • Fixes related to source tracking:
    • Track the max revision retrieved for each component instead of the overall max revision. This way components can be retrieved in stages into different paths.
    • If snapshot_changes doesn’t find any changes, wait 5 seconds and try again. There can be a delay after a deployment before source tracking is updated.

2.5.2 (2019-06-10)

Issues fixed:

  • When generating package.xml, translate ___NAMESPACE___ tokens in filenames into %%%NAMESPACE%%% tokens in package.xml (#1104).
  • Avoid extraneous output when --json output was requested (#1103).
  • Display OS notification when a task or flow completes even if it failed.
  • Robot Framework: Added logic to retry the initial page load if it is not loading successfully.
  • Internal API change: Errors while processing a response from the Metadata API are now raised as MetadataParseError.

2.5.1 (2019-05-31)

Issues fixed:

  • Fixed cci service connect when run outside of a directory containing a CumulusCI project.

2.5.0 (2019-05-25)

Breaking changes:

  • We reorganized the flows for setting up a package for regression testing for better symmetry with other flows. If you were running the install_regression flow before, you now probably want regression_org.

    Details: The install_regression flow now installs the package _without_ configuring it. There is a new config_regression flow to configure the package (it defaults to calling config_managed) and a regression_org flow that includes both install_regression and config_regression.

New features:

  • CumulusCI now has experimental support for deploying projects in DX source format. To enable this, set source_format: sfdx in the project section of cumulusci.yml. CumulusCI will deploy DX-format projects to scratch orgs using sfdx force:source:push and to other orgs using the Metadata API (by converting to metadata source format in a temporary directory).
  • Setting a default org in CumulusCI (using cci org default or the --default flag when creating a scratch org) will now also update the sfdx defaultusername. (#868)
  • When connecting to GitHub using cci service connect github, CumulusCI will now check to make sure the credentials are valid before saving them.
  • Robot Framework:
    • Added a framework for creating “page object” classes to contain keywords related to a particular page or component.
    • The robot task now takes a name option to control the name of the robot suite in output.
    • Updates to the keyword Open Test Browser:
      • It allows you to open more than one browser in a single test case. (#1068)
      • It sets the default size for the browser window to 1280x1024.
      • Added a new keyword argument size to override the default size.
      • Added a new keyword argument alias to let you assign an alias to multiple browser windows.

Issues fixed:

  • Robot Framework: Fixed a bug where the Delete Session Records keyword would skip deleting some records. (#973)
  • If Salesforce returns an error response while refreshing an OAuth token, CumulusCI will now show the response instead of just the HTTP status code.
  • Fixed a bug in reporting errors from the Metadata API if the response contains componentFailures with no problem or problemType.

2.4.4 (2019-05-09)

New features:

  • Added tasks list_changes and retrieve_changes which interact with source tracking in scratch orgs to handle retrieving changed metadata as Metadata API format source.
  • Added task EnsureRecordTypes to generate a Record Type and optional Business Process for a specific sObject and deploy the metadata, if the object does not already have Record Types.
  • The update_admin_profile task now uses Python string formatting on the package.xml file used for retrieve. This allows injection of namespace prefixes using {managed} and {namespaced_org}.

Issues fixed:

  • If CumulusCI gets a connection error while trying to call the Salesforce Metadata API, it will now retry several times before giving up.
  • The GitHub release notes parser now recognizes Issues Closed if they are linked in Markdown format.
  • Robot Framework: Fixed a locator used by the Select App Launcher App keyword to work in Summer ‘19.
  • The cci project init command now uses an updated repository URL when extending EDA.

2.4.3 (2019-04-26)

  • Allow configuration of the email address assigned to scratch org users, with the order of priority being (1) any adminEmail key in the scratch org definition; (2) the email_address property on the scratch org configuration in cumulusci.yml; (3) the user.email configuration property in Git.
  • CumulusCI can now handle building static resource bundles (*.resource) while deploying using the Metadata API. To use this option, specify the static_resource_path option for the deploy task. Any subdirectory in this path will be turned into a resource file and added to the package during deployment. There must be a corresponding *.resource-meta.xml file for each static resource bundle.
  • Bulk data tasks: Fixed a bug that added extra underscores to field names when processing lookups.
  • Robot Framework: The Salesforce library now has the ability to switch between different sets of locators based on the Salesforce version, and thanks to it we’ve fixed the robot so it can click on modal buttons in the Summer ‘19 release.
  • The cci project init command now generates projects with a different preferred structure for Robot Framework tests and resources, with everything inside the robot directory. Existing projects with tests in the tests directory should continue to work.

2.4.2 (2019-04-22)

  • The purgeOnDelete flag for the deploy task will now automatically be set to false when deploying metadata to production orgs (previously deployment would fail on production orgs if this flag was true).
  • The installation documentation now recommends using pipx to install CumulusCI on Windows, so that you don’t have to set up a virtualenv manually.

2.4.1 (2019-04-09)

Changes:

  • Updated the default Salesforce Metadata API version to 45.0
  • The scratch org definition files generated by cci project init now use orgPreferenceSettings instead of the deprecated orgPreferences.
  • The metadeploy_publish task now defaults to describing tasks based on Deploy as “metadata” steps instead of “other”.

Issues Fixed:

  • Fixed a couple problems with generating passwords for new scratch orgs:
    • A project’s predefined scratch org configs now default to set_password: True (which was already the case for orgs created explicitly using cci org scratch).
    • A scratch org config’s set_password flag is now retained when recreating an expired org. (Fixes #670)
  • Fixed the logic for finding the most recent GitHub release so that it now only considers tags that start with the project’s git prefix_release.
  • Fixed the install_prod_no_config flow. The deploy_post task was not injecting namespace tokens correctly.
  • Fixed the connected_app task to work with version 7 of the sfdx CLI. (Fixes #1013)
  • Robot Framework: Fixed the Populate Field keyword to work around intermittent problems clearing existing field values.

2.4.0 (2019-03-18)

Critical changes:

  • If you are publishing installation plans to MetaDeploy, there have been some significant changes:

    • Plan options are now read from a new plans section of cumulusci.yml instead of from task options. This means that a single run of the task can now handle publishing multiple plans, and there is now a generic metadeploy_publish task which can be used instead of setting up different tasks for each project.
    • Plan steps are now defined inline in the plan configuration rather than by naming a flow. This makes it easier to configure a plan that is like an existing flow with one or two adjustments.
    • There is now a way to customize MetaDeploy step settings such as name and is_required on a step-by-step basis, using ui_options in the plan config.
    • The task will now find or create a PlanTemplate as necessary, matching existing PlanTemplates on the product and plan name. This means the plan config no longer needs to reference a plan template by id, which makes it easier to publish to multiple instances of MetaDeploy.
  • The install_upgrade flow was renamed to install_regression to better reflect the use case it is focused on. There are also a few updates to what it does:

    • It will now install the latest beta release of managed packages instead of the latest final release.
    • It now runs the config_managed flow after upgrading the managed package, so that it will work if this flow has references to newly added components.

Changes:

  • Added support for deploying Lightning Web Components.
  • Fixed the bulk data load task to handle null values in a datetime column.
  • The ci_master flow now explicitly avoids trying to install beta releases of dependencies (since it’s meant for use with non-scratch orgs and we block installing betas there since they can’t be upgraded).

2.3.4 (2019-03-06)

  • Added a new flow, install_upgrade, which can be used for testing package upgrades. It installs and configures the _previous_ release of the package, then installs the latest release.
  • Fixed an error when using cci org info --json (fixes #1013).

2.3.3 (2019-02-28)

  • Fixed a bug where flow options specified on the command line were not passed to tasks correctly.
  • cci service connect now shows a more helpful error message if you call it with a service name that CumulusCI doesn’t know about. Fixes #752.
  • Deleted scratch orgs will no longer show the number of days since they were created in cci org list. Thanks to @21aslade for the fix.
  • Updates to the MetaDeploy publish task:
    • It is now possible to publish a new plan for an existing version.
    • It is now possible to specify the AllowedList to which a plan is visible.
  • Updates to Robot Framework support:
    • Fixed a bug in the robot task: it now accepts an option called test rather than tests, since the latter was ignored by Robot Framework.
    • Fixed some stability problems with the Populate Field keyword.
    • The robot_libdoc task has been replaced with a new task of the same name that can generate a single HTML document for multiple keyword files by passing a comma-separated list of files to the path option.

2.3.2 (2019-02-19)

  • Mapping enhancements for bulk QueryData and LoadData tasks
    • The mapping yaml file no longer requires using Id: sf_id as a field mapping. If not provided, QueryData and LoadData will use local database ids instead of Saleforce OIDs for storing lookup relationships. Previous mappings which specify the Id: sf_id mapping will continue to work as before using the Salesforce OID as the mapping value.
    • The mapping yaml file’s lookups: section now handles defaults to allow simpler lookup mappings. The only key required is now table. If the key_field is provided it will be used.
  • The sql_path option on QueryData can be used to provide the file path where a SQL script should be written. If this option is used, a sqlite in-memory database is used and discarded. This is useful for storing data sets in a Github repository and allowing diffs of the dataset to be visible when reviewing Pull Requests
    • When using this option, it is best to make sure your mapping yaml file does not provide a field mapping for the Id field. This will help avoid merge conflicts if querying data from different orgs such as scratch orgs.
  • The sql_path option on LoadData can be used to provide the file path where a SQL script file should be read and used to load an in-memory sqlite database for the load operation.

2.3.1 (2019-02-15)

  • Fixed a bug that caused the cci command to check for a newer version on every run, rather than occasionally. Also we now detect whether CumulusCI was installed using Homebrew and recommend an upgrade command accordingly.
  • CumulusCI now automatically generates its own keychain key and stores it in the system keychain (using the Python keyring library). This means that it is no longer necessary to specify a CUMULUSCI_KEY as an environment variable. (However, the environment variable will still be preferred if it is there, and it will be migrated to the system keychain.)
  • New task connected_app makes it easier to deploy and configure the Connected App needed for CumulusCI’s keychain to work with persistent orgs. The connected app is deployed using sfdx to an org in the sfdx keychain and defaults to the defaultdevhubusername.
  • The robot task gives a more helpful error message if you forget to specify an org.
  • Updates to the task for publishing to MetaDeploy:
    • Dependency installation steps are now named using the package name and version.
    • The task options have been revised to match changes in the MetaDeploy API. An optional plan_template_id is now accepted. preflight_message is now named preflight_message_additional and is optional. post_install_message is now named post_install_message_additional and is optional.

2.3.0 (2019-02-04)

Changes:

  • When installing a managed package dependency, pre & post metadata bundles are now fetched from the git commit corresponding to the most recent release of the managed package, instead of master.
  • Improvements to the task for publishing a release to MetaDeploy: * It can now publish a tag even if it’s a different commit than what is currently checked out in the working directory. * It now pins managed deployments of metadata bundles to the git commit corresponding to the most recent release of the managed package.

Issues Closed:

  • #962: cumulusci.utils.findReplace uses wrong file encoding in Python 3
  • #967: Allow cci service commands to be run from outside a project repository

2.3.0b1 (2019-01-28)

Breaking Changes:

  • We refactored the code for running flows. The full list of steps to run is now calculated from nested flow configuration when the flow is initialized instead of during runtime. Your existing flows should continue to run as before, but if you’re interacting with CumulusCI at the Python API level, you’ll need to use the FlowCoordinator instead of BaseFlow.
  • Tasks are now expected to have no side effects when they are instantiated. If tasks need to set up resources, do that in _init_task instead of __init__ or _init_options to make sure it doesn’t happen until the task is actually being run.

Changes:

  • There is now a dev_org_beta_deps flow which sets up an org in the same way as dev_org, but installs the latest beta versions of managed package dependencies.
  • The github_release task now records the release dependencies as JSON in the release’s tag message.
  • Looking up the latest release from GitHub is now done using a single HTTP request rather than listing all releases.
  • We added S-Controls to the list of metadata types that the uninstall_packaged_incremental task will delete.
  • Salesforce Robot Framework library: The Get Current Record Id keyword now parses the Id correctly when prefixed with %2F, which apparently happens.
  • The push_failure_report task now avoids an error when querying for info about lots of subscriber orgs.

Issues Closed:

  • #911: Fix UnicodeDecodeError when parsing XML retrieved from the Metadata API.

2.2.6 (2019-01-03)

Changes:

  • Added support for more metadata types: Group, SharingSet, SharingCriteriaRule, SharingOwnerRule, and SharingTerritoryRule.
  • Release process: We now have tools in place to release cumulusci so that it can be installed using Homebrew or Linuxbrew.

Issues Closed:

  • Fixed an issue where tasks using the Salesforce REST API could build a wrong URL with an extra slash after the instance URL.
  • Fixed an issue where overriding a flow step to set flow: None did not work.
  • Robot Framework: Added an automatic retry to work around an issue with an intermittent ConnectionResetError when connecting to headless Chrome in Python 3.

2.2.5 (2018-12-26)

  • The install_managed and install_managed_beta tasks now take optional activateRSS and password options. activateRSS is set to true by default so that any active Remote Site Settings in the package will remain active when installed.
  • When running a task with the --debug flag, HTTP requests are now logged.
  • Robot Framework:
    • Fix issue where “Get Current Record Id” could accidentally match the object name instead of the record Id.
    • Fix issue where “Load Related List” would fail to scroll down to the list.
    • Fix issue where errors deleting records during test teardown would cause a hidden test failure.

2.2.4 (2018-12-17)

Changes:

  • Bulk query task:
    • Fixed an issue with querying data filtered by record type (#904).
    • Fixed an issue where the optimized approach for loading data into PostgreSQL was not used.
    • The task will now prevent you from accidentally overwriting existing data by exiting with an error if the table already exists.
  • The deploy task now logs the size of the zip payload in bytes.
  • Fixed a TypeError in the commit_apex_docs task (#901).
  • Robot Framework:
    • Add location strategies for locating elements by text and by title.

2.2.3 (2018-12-07)

Changes:

  • Improved error messages when scratch org creation failed and when a service is not configured.
  • Robot Framework: Limit how long the “Load Related List” keyword will wait.

2.2.2 (2018-11-27)

Changes:

  • Improved error handling during scratch org creation:
    • Capture and display stderr output from SFDX (issue #413).
    • Avoid infinite recursion if username wasn’t found in output from SFDX.
  • Robot Framework: Increased the timeout for initial loading of the browser.

2.2.1 (2018-11-21)

Oops, an update in CumulusCI 2.2.0 ended up breaking the update_dependencies task! Now fixed.

2.2.0 (2018-11-21)

Changes:

  • Tasks can now be placed in groups for the task list! Just specify a group when defining the task in YAML.
  • By popular request, there is now an org import command to import an org from the SFDX keychain to the CumulusCI keychain. It takes two arguments: the SFDX username or alias, and the org name.
  • Robot Framework:
    • The Populate Field keyword now clears an existing value using keystrokes to make sure that change events are fired.
    • Added a Get Namespace Prefix keyword to the CumulusCI library to get the namespace prefix for a package.
    • Fixed a bug that broke opening a browser after using the Run Task keyword.
  • Documentation updates:
    • The readme now includes a link to the full documentation.
    • The instructions for installing CumulusCI on macOS have been simplified and now recommend using the official Python installer from python.org instead of Homebrew. (Homebrew should still work fine, but is no longer necessary.) We also now suggest creating a virtualenv using venv rather than pyenv since the former is included with Python. It’s fine to continue using pyenv if you want.
    • Give more useful links for how to set up SFDX.
    • Updated robot library docs.
  • Internal refactoring:
    • Removed dependency on HiYaPyCo for YAML loading, which would not report which file failed to load in the event of a YAML parse error.
    • We now consistently load YAML in the same manner throughout the entire library, which will work with all supported Python versions.
    • Simplified the Python API for setting up a CumulusCI runtime. Begone, YamlGlobalConfig and YamlProjectConfig. Our Python API is not yet documented, but we’re working on it. In the meantime, if you were relying on running CCI from within Python, you can now just use BaseGlobalConfig (and its get_project_config member) to bootstrap CCI.
    • BaseProjectConfig has shrugged off some methods that just delegated to the keychain.
    • BaseGlobalConfig has shrugged off some unimplemented methods, and BaseGlobalConfig.get_project_config is now deprecated in favor of using a runtime.
    • Introducing… 🥁CumulusCIRuntime! In order to alleviate the complexities of getting CumulusCI tasks/flows running from within a Python application, CumulusCIRuntime encapsulates a lot of the details and wiring between Keychain, GlobalConfig, and ProjectConfig. Usage docs are barely included.
    • CliConfig has been renamed to CliRuntime and now inherits from CumulusCIRuntime. It is still accessible as CliConfig.
    • Upgraded dependencies.
  • Contributor improvement: The contributor docs now explain how to install pre-commit hooks to make sure our linters have run before you commit.

Issues Closed:

  • #674: cci org import <username> <org_name>
  • #877: CumulusCI should be able to connect to any DX alias and/or understand dx auth files

2.1.2 (2018-10-29)

Oops, we broke a few things! This is a bugfix release to fix a few issues found during the Salesforce.org Open Source Community Sprint last week.

Issues Closed:

  • #858 Dataload bulk query fails to load data into the sqlite db
  • #862 CLI options fail on robot task in 2.1.1
  • #864 Deploying a -meta.xml file with non-ASCII characters breaks in Python 2

2.1.1 (2018-10-23)

Changes:

  • Our robotframework library for Salesforce got a number of improvements:
    • New keywords:
      • Click Header Field Link: Clicks a link in a record header
      • Load Related List: Scrolls to a related list and waits for it to load
      • Click Related List Button: Clicks a button in the header of a related list
      • Click Related Item Link: Clicks the main link for an item in a related list
      • Click Related Item Popup Link: Clicks a link in the popup menu for an item in a related list
    • Updated to robotframework-seleniumlibrary 3.2.0 which includes a Scroll Element Into View keyword.
    • Wait Until Loading Is Complete now waits for the main body of the page to render
    • Populate Lookup Field now tries several times in case there’s an indexing delay
    • Added a -o verbose True option to the robot task which logs each keyword as it runs.
    • We now ignore errors while running the script that waits for XHRs to complete (it can fail if the page reloads before the script finishes).
  • Popup notifications upon completion of a flow or task now work on Linux too, if you have the notify-send command from libnotify. On Ubuntu, install the notify-osd package.

Issues Closed:

  • #827 Bulk data load breaks in Python 2
  • #832 pip install cumulusci gets the wrong version of urllib3

2.1.1b1 (2018-10-17)

  • uninstall_packaged_incremental task: Added ignore option to specify components to skip trying to delete even if they are present in the org but not in the local source.

2.1.0 (2018-10-16)

  • Fixed the cci project init command, which was failing because it wanted the project to already exist! Fixes #816. In addition, other commands will now function without an active project or keychain when it possible to do so. (For example, try cci version which now works when you’re not in a project directory.)
  • update_dependencies task:
    • Added support for installing private github repositories as dependencies. Thanks to Anthony Backhouse (@1handclapping) for the patch. Fixes #793
    • Added a dependencies option to override the project dependencies.
  • execute_apex task:
    • Print more useful error messages when there are Apex exceptions.
  • robot task:
    • Our logic for automatically retrying failed selenium commands has been encapsulated into the cumulusci.robotframework.utils.selenium_retry decorator which can be applied to a robot library class for increased stability.
    • There is now an option to pause and enter the Python debugger after a keyword fails. Run with -o pdb True.
    • Revised keywords and locators to support the Winter ‘19 release of Salesforce and improve stability.
    • The Salesforce.robot file now includes the OperatingSystem and XML libraries from Robot Framework by default. These libraries are helpful in building integration tests such as modifying and deploying a PageLayout to include a field needed in Suite Setup of an integration test.
  • Revised installation instructions for Windows. Thanks Matthew Blanski (@Auchtor).
  • Internal change: Use a thread-local variable instead of a global to track the current running task.

2.1.0b1 (2018-10-05)

  • It’s happening! Hot on the heels of the last release, CumulusCI is making the jump to the modern era by adding support for Python 3! (Specifically, Python 3.6 and 3.7.) Don’t worry, we’ll also continue to support Python 2 for the time being. Because this is a bit more wide-reaching change than normal, we’re releasing a beta first. To install the beta you’ll need to explicitly request its version: pip install cumulusci==2.1.0b1. If you already have CumulusCI, after the update it will continue to run under your Python 2 interpreter. If you want to switch to the Python 3 interpreter (which is not yet required), we recommend deleting your Python virtualenv and starting over with the instructions in the tutorial. If you want to keep your Python 2-based virtualenv around just in case, follow those instructions but name the new virtualenv cci-py3 instead of cci.
  • There are also some big changes to the bulk data tasks. Did you know CumulusCI has bulk data tasks? They are not configured by default, because we need to finish documenting them. But we’ll list the changes in case someone is already relying on them: * Fixed connection resets by downloading an entire result file before processing. * Improved performance by processing batches in parallel, avoiding the SQLAlchemy ORM, storing inserted Ids in separate tables, and doing lookups using SQL joins rather than a separate query for each row. * If you’re using a postgres database for local storage, performance gets even better by taking advantage of postgres’ COPY command to load CSV directly. * Added a hardDelete option for bulk deletes. * Added a start_step option for bulk loads which can be used to resume loading after an error.
  • The push_failure_report task will now by default hide failures that occurred due to the “Package Uninstalled” or “Salesforce Subscription Expired” errors, which are generally benign.
  • Fixed the check for newer CumulusCI versions to work around an issue with old setuptools.
  • Contributor change: We switched CumulusCI’s own tests to run using pytest.
  • Internal change: We switched to the cryptography library for handling keychain encryption.

2.0.13 (2018-10-02)

  • Happy Spooky October! It’s unlucky release 2.0.13, with some scary-cool improvements. Just to show you how ramped up our RelEng team is now, this release had TWENTY THREE pull requests in 12 days! From all four of your friendly SFDO Release Engineering committers. Thanks so much for continuing to use CCI for all your Salesforce automation needs.
  • NEW FLOW: ci_beta_dependencies installs the latest beta of project dependencies and run tests. Includes task error when running against non-scratch orgs.
  • NEW TASK: ReportPushFailures pulls a list of Package Push Upgrade Request failures after a push attempt, including grouping by important factors.
  • Issue a terminal “Bell” sound and attempt to display a macOS notification when a commandline task or flow completes.
  • Cleaned up python exception and error handling across the board, so that we can provide you, the user, with only the most relevant information. Try using CCI without setting your CUMULUSCI_KEY and see a simplified error message.
  • Fixed the utils for processing namespaces in package zip files to handle non-ASCII characters
  • The CONTRIBUTING.rst docs and Makefile have been updated to show how we release updates of CCI.
  • Skip beta releases when checking for a newer cumulusci version
  • When using the strip_namespace option on deployments, we now log which files had changes made before deploying.
  • Going Out: the SFDXDeploy and SFDXJsonPollingTasks have been removed, as they didn’t work.
  • Going Out: Use the safe_load() method when loading YAML instead of the naive load(). If you relied on executing code in your CCI YAML file parsing, that will no longer work.

2.0.12 (2018-09-20)

  • Fixed apexdoc URL
  • Fixed update_admin_profile to set any existing record type defaults to false before setting new defaults.
  • Fixed deployment of -meta.xml files containing non-ASCII characters.
  • Updated the robot selector for “Click Modal Button” to work for modals opened by a Quick Action.

2.0.11 (2018-09-14)

  • update_admin_profile now uses xml parsing instead of string replacement for more targeted editing of Admin.profile to fix issues with deploying record types via dependencies
  • Projects can declare a dependency on a minimum version of cumulusci by specifying minimum_cumulusci_version in cumulusci.yml

2.0.10 (2018-09-13)

  • update_admin_profile task now sets application and tab visibility and supports setting record type visibility and default via the new record_types task option
  • Restructured exceptions to include two new parent exceptions useful in client implementations:
    • CumulusCIFailure: Used to signify a failure rather than an error, such as test or metadata deployment failures
    • CumulusCIUsageError: Use to signify a usage error such as accessing a task that does not exist
  • execute_anon task now accepts either apex (string) or path (Apex in a local file) for the Apex to execute. Also, the managed and namespaced options allow injecting namespace prefixes into the Apex to be executed.
  • New flow retrieve_scratch can be used to retrieve declarative changes from a scratch org into the src/ directory

2.0.9 (2018-09-10)

  • Make robot commands use new lightning URLs
  • Remove unused filter_name arg from Go to Record Home robot keyword.
  • Fix metadata map for Settings.

2.0.8 (2018-08-21)

  • Flows that are executed from within another flow now support task-level control flow.
  • We no longer support the undocumented ability for a Flow to provide its own class_path.
  • Use the connected app details to set a client name on HTTP requests to Salesforce.

2.0.7 (2018-08-16)

  • cci service show has been renamed cci service info!
  • Update default API version in the base YAML to v43.0.
  • Doc updates in the tutorial, thanks to @justindonnaruma!
  • Significant refactor of the cli module, including a bunch of small usability and exception handling changes. See https://github.com/SFDO-Tooling/CumulusCI/pull/708 for details.
  • Display the file name for error causing files in more cases.
  • Strip packageVersions tags from aura/, components/, and pages/ metadata.
  • Update PyYAML dependency.

2.0.6 (2018-08-07)

  • In Robot tests that use the standard keyword for interacting with a lookup field, we now wait for all AJAX requests to complete before submitting.
  • Add unit tests for large sections of the library.
  • We now support Flow, DuplicateRule, and other new Metadata types thanks to @carlosvl.
  • Fixed refreshing oauth token when deploying metadata to persistent orgs.

2.0.5 (2018-08-01)

  • Fixes #695: Update InstallPackageZipBuilder to set activateRSS to unblock installs.

2.0.4 (2018-07-30)

  • Fixes #611: Scratch org operations were failing on Windows
  • Fixes #664: Scratch org aliases incorrectly included double quotes in the alias name

2.0.3 (2018-07-27)

2.0.2 (2018-06-06)

  • Bugfix: Update InstallPackageZipBuilder to use a recent api version to unblock installs.

2.0.1 (2018-06-06)

  • Bugfix: Allow passing a connected app directly to OrgConfig.refresh_oauth_token.

2.0.0 (2018-06-01)

After over 19 months of development as alpha (40 version over 3 months) and beta (98 releases over 16 months) releases and over a year running production builds using CumulusCI, it’s time to remove the “beta” label.

This marks the first production release of CumulusCI 2.x!

2.0.0-beta99 (2018-05-31)

  • Ensure that github credentials are never shown in the log for github dependencies with unmanaged metadata

2.0.0-beta98 (2018-05-31)

WARNING: This release introduces breaking changes to the syntax for flow definitions and to the default flows. If you customized any of the default flows in your project or have defined custom flows, you will need to modify your cumulusci.yml file to work with this release.

Changes default flows shipped with CumulusCI to a new syntax and structure taking advantage of the ability for flows to call other flows. This allows flows to be modularized in ways that weren’t possible when the original set of flows was designed.

  • The tasks: section in cumulusci.yml for a flow is now renamed to steps: A FlowConfigError will be raised if an old style flow definition is detected. All existing flow customizations and custom flows need to be changed in the cumulusci.yml to avoid raising an exception.

  • All default flows have been restructured. Existing customizations of default flows likely need to be changed to adapt to the new structure. In most cases, you will want to move your customizations to some of the new config_* or deploy_* instead of the main flows.

  • ci_beta_install has been removed and replaced with install_beta and uninstall_managed install_beta does not attempt to uninstall an existing version of the package. If you need to uninstall the package first, use the uninstall_managed flow before running install_beta

  • Added new qa_org flow to allow different configurations for dev vs QA orgs

  • New modularized flows structure allows for easier and more reusable customization:

    • dependencies Runs the pre-package deployment dependency tasks update_dependencies and deploy_pre This flow is called by almost all the main flows.

    • config_* flows provide a place to customize the package configuration for different environments. These flows are called by the main flows after the package metadata is deployed or a managed version is installed. Customizations to the config flows automatically apply to the main flows.

      • config_apextest Configure org for running apex tests
      • config_dev Configure org for dev use
      • config_managed Configure org with a managed package version installed
      • config_packaging Configure the packaging org
      • config_qa Configure org for QA use
    • deploy_* flows provide a place to customize how metadata deployments are done. The deploy flows do more than just a simple deployment such as unscheduling scheduled jobs, rebuilding the package.xml, and incrementally deleting any stale metadata in the package from the org.

      • deploy_unmanaged Used to do a standard deployment of the unmanaged metadata
      • deploy_packaging Used to deploy to packaging. Wraps the create_managed_src task around the deploy to inject metadata that can only be deployed to the packaging org
      • deploy_unmanaged_ee Used to deploy unmanaged metadata to an Enterprise Edition org using the create_unmanaged_ee_src task
  • github dependencies can now point to a private Github repository. All zip downloads from Github will pass the password (should be a personal access token) from the github service configured in the CumulusCI keychain.

  • GithubRelease, PushUpgradeRequest, and PackageUploadRequest now track the release data as return values

2.0.0-beta97 (2018-05-31)

  • Salesforce Connected App is now a CCI Service! Instead of using cci org config_connected_app you can use the familiar cci service commands.
  • Better error handling when running commands without specifying a default org (thanks @topherlandry)
  • Fix issue where scratch org password may become outdated
  • Improve Robot test runner task to use the already configured CCI environment instead of trying to create a new one.
  • Enable Robot testing in Headless Chrome on Heroku.
  • Address Python3 print statement issues.
  • Add LogLine task class to log statements and variables.
  • Add PassOptionAsResult, PassOptionAsReturnValue to pass options around in Flows.
  • Further extended the Flow runner subclass API.

2.0.0-beta96 (2018-05-18)

  • Fixes for CumulusCI on Windows - CumulusCI 2 now supports Windows environments!
  • Support skipping scratch org password creation by specifying –no-password to cci org scratch
  • Add additional logging to PackageUpload

2.0.0-beta95 (2018-05-10)

  • Add pytz to requirements

2.0.0-beta94 (2018-05-10)

  • Support added for nested flows. Specify a flow instead of a task inside another flow in cumulusci.yml
  • Add new task github_release_report to report info from GitHub release notes
  • Add new flow dev_deploy for minimal deploy (tasks: unschedule_jobs, deploy)
  • Enhance BaseFlow to be more easily subclassed/overridden/observed. Preserves task step number and adds several hook methods for subclasses (_pre_task, _post_task, _post_task_exception)
  • Refactor github_release_notes task to use github3.py instead of calling the GitHub API directly. Includes these minor changes to functionality:
    • Cannot create release with this task (use github_create_release instead)
    • Merge existing release notes even when not publishing
  • Fix issue that caused duplicate entries in the dependency tree
  • Sort output of os.listdir in all occurrences. Guarantees ordered iteration over files on disk
  • Validate CUMULUSCI_KEY value and raise more helpful exceptions if invalid

2.0.0-beta93 (2018-04-20)

  • Fix issue in command task for Windows
  • Support interactive in command task (thanks Chris Landry!)
  • Search more pull requests (100 vs 30) when generating release notes

Breaking Changes

  • If you created custom tasks off of DeployNamespaced or DeployNamespacedBundles, you will need to switch to using Deploy and DeployBundles. The recommended configuration for such custom tasks is represented below. In flows that need to inject the actual namespace prefix, override the unmanaged option ..

    custom_deploy_task:
        class_path: cumulusci.tasks.salesforce.Deploy
        options:
            path: your/custom/metadata
            namespace_inject: $project_config.project__package__namespace
            unmanaged: False
    

Enhancements

  • The cci CLI will now check for new versions and print output at the top of the log if a new version is available
  • The cci keychain now automatically creates orgs for all named scratch org configs in the project. The orgs are created with the same name as the config. Out of the box, CumulusCI comes with 4 org configs: dev, feature, beta, and release. You can add additional org configs per project using the orgs -> scratch section of the project’s cumulusci.yml. With this change, cci org list will always show at least 4 orgs for any project. If an org already exists in the keychain, it is not touched and no scratch org config is auto-created for that config. The goal is to eliminate the need to call cci org scratch in most cases and make it easier for new users to get up and running with scratch orgs and CumulusCI.
  • cci org remove <org_name> is now available to remove orgs from the keychain
  • Scratch orgs created by CumulusCI are now aliased using the naming format ProjectName__org_name so you can easily run sfdx commands against scratch orgs created by CumulusCI
  • cci org list now shows more information including scratch, config_name, and username. NOTE: config_name will only be populated for newly created scratch configs. You can use cci org scratch to recreate the config in the keychain.
  • The new flow dev_org_namespaced provides a base flow for deploying unmanaged metadata into a namespaced org such as a namespaced scratch org
  • All tasks which previously supported namespace_inject now support a new option, namespaced_org. This option is designed to handle use cases of namespaced orgs such as a namespaced scratch org. In namespaced orgs, all unmanaged metadata gets the namespace prefix even if it is not included in the package. You can now use the namespaced_org option along with the file content token %%%NAMESPACED_ORG%%% and the file name token ___NAMESPACED_ORG___ to inject the namespace when deploying to a namespaced org. namespaced_org defaults to False to be backwards compatible with previous functionality.
  • New task push_list supports easily pushing a list of OrgIds via the Push API from the CLI: cci task run push_list -o file <file_path> -o version 1.2 –org packaging

2.0.0-beta64 (2017-09-29)

2.0.0-beta62 (2017-09-19)

  • cci now supports both namespaced and non-namespaced scratch org configurations in the same project. The default behavior changes slightly with this release. Before, if the sfdx-project.json had a namespace configured, all scratch orgs created via cci org scratch would get the namespace. With the new functionality, all orgs would by default not have the namespace. You can configure individual org configs in your project’s cumulusci.yml file by setting namespace: True under orgs -> scratch -> <org_name>
