Yum Repo Poller Plugin no longer bundled by default
Due to both its uncommon use and improvement of agent bootstrap speeds the Yum/RPM/DNF Repository Poller Plugin is no longer bundled with GoCD from 23.1.0 onwards.
All plugins impose a marginal startup cost for the server and certain plugins also to all agents. Since it is also currently difficult to override bundled plugins in some GoCD setups, the team have decided to stop bundling this particular plugin.
If you rely upon this plugin, follow these upgrade steps:
- download the latest version of the plugin from GitHub
- install the plugin as an external plugin (see plugin user guide)
- upgrade your server to 23.1.0
You needn't worry about:
- Starting your old server version with the external plugin added. GoCD will ignore it, and prefer the bundled plugin until you upgrade.
- Loss of configuration while starting your server on 23.1.0 before adding the plugin back. Your config will be retained, however your server will not function correctly, and certain pipelines will not be editable until you restore the plugin and restart your server, which you should do as soon as possible.
As always, we recommend that you take a backup before upgrading.
