Upgrade Netbox to 2.6.1
Open, LowPublic0 Story Points

Description

New release! https://github.com/digitalocean/netbox/releases/tag/v2.6.0

No urgent fix but some nice to have features:

  • Power Panels and Feeds, might be useful for DCops
  • Caching, this adds a mandatory dependency on Redis
  • View Permissions, could potentially let us open up parts of our Netbox instance to the public
  • Prometheus Metrics, note that the /metrics url is public
  • Changes to Tag Permissions, to be tested (does it support tags whitelist?)
  • API Support for Specifying Related Objects by Attributes, should make using the API easier
  • Add dns_name field to IPAddress, should help with the dns in Netbox project
  • Custom Links this comment made me aware of a useful Dell feature

FYI this has a new required dependency of Redis, so we should check with serviceops if we could use an existing Redis installation.
It also has some changes in the API and we should check if existing scripts needs to be updated.

Roger, it might be best to wait on the upgrade until the split to Ganeti is done (maybe early next week) as using Redis was part of the spec for that.
