StoRM Info Provider v. 1.8.1

Released on 28.02.2019 with StoRM v. 1.11.15.


This release fixes the JSON storage report generation as follow:

  1. The root of the JSON is an object with only one key: storageservice. Its value is an object where everything else is put.
  2. The endpoints key has been renamed to storageendpoints.
  3. The shares key has been renamed to storageshares.
  4. Fixed share’s VO list when multiple VOs are defined as an array.
  5. The name of the shares matches the corresponding space token.

Check the How-To documentation section to learn how to configure StoRM to share the JSON storage report.

This release also allows to specify multiple WebDAV endpoints by using the new YAIM variable STORM_WEBDAV_POOL_LIST, as a comma separated list. The old strategy used to publish the StoRM WebDAV endpoint is still supported but deprecated.

Bug fixes

  • [STOR-1037] - The published WebDAV endpoint ends with /webdav which is obsolete and broken without an ending slash


  • [STOR-844] - Change the way info-provider knows if a webdav endpoint must be published
  • [STOR-1020] - Remove functions and code related to old and deprecated variables
  • [STOR-1039] - Implement suggested changes in JSON report file

Installation and configuration

Update package:

yum update storm-dynamic-info-provider

To publish a WebDAV endpoint use STORM_WEBDAV_POOL_LIST variable instead of the deprecated variables:


All the webdav endpoints must be declared as a comma-separated list:


Then run YAIM.

The deprecated variables can still be used within StoRM 1.11.15 but they won’t be supported by next releases.

This migration/upgrade allows site administrators to publish a well defined list of DAV endpoints, in order to overcome the previous limitations.

You can find information about upgrade, clean installation and configuration of StoRM services in the System Administration Guide.
