Are you as excited as I am about March updates? At Harness, we’re continuously launching new products. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise considering our platform is designed to accelerate software delivery for our customers.
Are you as excited as I am about March updates? At Harness, we’re continuously launching new products. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise considering our platform is designed to accelerate software delivery for our customers. Naturally, we’re deploying Harness using Harness which means we’re launching daily. We have a major push every day at 5 pm, to be exact. This makes sense, considering we’re dogfooding our own product: the most powerful CD tool on the market.
Let’s jump in.
We've added support for Kustomize! The Kustomize framework introduces a declarative way to configure Kubernetes. Kustomize plugins are also supported. Take a look at this awesome blog for detailed instructions on how to setup Kustomize with Harness. For more information, read our docs.
With all of that configuration surrounding all the services you’re onboarding into Harness, it can become difficult to keep track of it all. This is why we’re excited to introduce a whole new global search function! Click on the search button in the upper right-hand corner and away you go searching all of the various components within Harness.
Skip Workflow Steps
In Harness, you can now add conditional steps to your workflows. With this feature, you can create a templatized workflow that can skip the execution of steps based on various conditions. Harness users often have Workflows that are very similar but differ in settings such as Service, Environment, or artifact. Instead of managing multiple Workflows, you can merge these Workflows and add conditions that skip specific steps based on these different conditions. For more information, please read our docs.
- We've added supported for Open ID Connect (OIDC) as way to authenticate with your Kubernetes cluster with short-lived tokens from your OAuth2 identify provider. For more details, see our docs.
- We've added support for deploying to OpenShift v3.11. For more information, read our docs.
What else is up at Harness?
Spend a free afternoon from the comfort of your home with Harness and learn about Continuous Delivery best practices with Kubernetes. This virtual class is for experienced tech professionals who have some background in Kubernetes (doesn't need to be a ton) and want to become highly skilled at CD.
These trainings are packed and on an approval basis — request a spot for upcoming training and we'll send you a confirmation if we have room.
