Continuous Delivery Today

In the DevOps landscape today, Harness has grown to be a leader in innovation. Continuous delivery has become a backbone in efficient and reliable software deployments, streamlining software development processes. 

Using Harness’s platform, let’s take a look at how the CD  module works. In a dream world, every time I deploy my code to a pipeline, it would run successfully. But unfortunately, in the real world, we know that this is not always the case. Seeing the red alert that my deployment has failed leads to developer toil. But with Harness’s new innovative AI toolkit, this stress can be eliminated.

In this blog, we will go over the AIDA CD Error Analyzer feature and how it can be used to perform root cause analysis and remediate issues.

Let’s start by taking a look at some example deployments in my project. I am seeing a few failed pipelines. How can we quickly remediate that?

How does AIDA Change the Landscape?

AIDA CD Error Analyzer is an innovative AI DevOps tool engineered to provide comprehensive root cause analysis (RCA) and remediation steps for failed pipelines. RCA is important in the world of continuous delivery because it helps identify underlying causes of issues that arise during development and deployment, leading to pinpointing the error and resolution. Ultimately, RCA contributes to the delivery of high-quality software, and AIDA will help us achieve that goal. 

Failed Deployment in my Pipeline Studio

Let’s take a look at one of these failed pipelines as an example of how AIDA benefits software delivery teams. Before clicking on the purple AIDA button, let’s dive into the typical workflow of resolving failed pipelines. 

Manual RCA Causes Unnecessary Toil

To resolve this failure, engineers would have to open the console view to discover the error and have to sift through logs to find the root cause.

Let’s take a look at what that would look like in our Harness platform.

A Better World with AIDA as Your DevOps Assistant 

Now, let’s ask AIDA to help us by pressing the purple button. In a matter of seconds, AIDA analyzes these logs for you to come to the relevant error message and suggested remediation step. This eliminates toil, improves productivity, and helps you continuously improve faster. 

Easy RCA and Remediation

In this case, I had an image pull error. AIDA provided the root cause of the error and suggested remediation steps for me to quickly fix it. 

How does AIDA CD Error Analyzer Work?

AIDA is built as an enterprise-ready privacy-first solution and is powered by innovative GenAI technology and advanced algorithms. 

For AIDA CD Error Analyzer, Harness uses the execution logs to render the AI remediation responses. For more detailed information, refer to our comprehensive privacy guide.
