It’s all in a hard day’s work! Or in our case, a month :D
Even with the holidays, we were able to get 2 huge features out for Feature Flags - and, of course, are making ship happen for the coming weeks/months with interesting updates to CI, CCM, and FF. Pretty cool stuff, right?
Speaking of stuff(ing), we hope you had a great Thanksgiving and that you were able to spend time with loved ones. 🦃 We’ll see you next month!
We recently rolled out the capability for users to build robust dashboards for all their deployments using Harness Continuous Delivery. With this capability, users can define their own dashboards, are able to set alerts for the metrics, share the dashboards and easily download/export the data as well. This feature is behind a feature flag. Reach out to our customer success team to try it out!
We added the capability to perform actions on manual intervention for users based on the permissions they have for the corresponding workflow or pipeline. Users with rollback permission only will now be able to perform the rollback action on manual intervention, and users with execute workflow/pipeline permissions will have the ability to abort/continue the workflow execution when it is paused on manual intervention.
We now support kubectl 1.9.2 for kubernetes deployments. This is available behind a feature flag. Please reach out to our customer success team to try it out!
Ever tried to manage the release of an individual feature? You probably had to schedule the release, go through an approvals process, update lots of tickets, and verify its behavior. And chances are you had to use a different tool or workstream for each. Feature Flag Pipelines change that. All of the above steps (and then some) can be easily stitched into a single feature release workflow and completely automated so all you have to do is code the feature and press “Go.” There’s a Monopoly joke in there somewhere.
A Harness mainstay has always been the ability to work in the application UI or in code, knowing that either way, everything stays in sync. Now this is a reality in Harness Feature Flags as well. Developers can use YAML, GitOps, and config as code to build feature release pipelines, giving developers the flexibility to work with their preferred workflow. For customers using more than just Harness Feature Flags, it also means that the entire SDLC can now be in Git - versioning, audits, build, & release. Happy coding!
