Environment:
Continuous Delivery Director: 6.7
Answer:
Is the ISO we used to upgrade is correct or missing the following plugins
The ISO used for CDD 6.7 is correct, the above mentioned plugins are not part of the release.
  1. The "Gradle testing", "Protractor" are part of the new gen of plugins that will be released with the "Adaptive Testing" feature. These are referenced also as containerised plugins.
  2. The "Saucelabs" plugin is currently available only for SaaS customers. It will also be part of the "Adaptive Testing" feature once we release it.
  3. The "Robot" plugin is also not part of 6.7 (status: early May 2018) and will be released in the coming weeks. It will be available for both on-prem and SaaS customers

The error recorded in cdd_server.log complaining about various plugins not loaded doesn't have any functional message. These are just redundant messages in the log file.
