Harness Product Updates June 2024

Table of Contents

Welcome to the June 2024 edition of Harness product updates. Summer is in the air here in the Northern Hemisphere. At Harness, we have been hard at work so you can delight your customers without facing software delivery toil. Here is what has been changing in the previous month across Harness Products.


Harness Launches Three New AI-Powered Cloud Cost Optimization Features

We’re excited to launch three new capabilities that add to our comprehensive cloud cost management (CCM) tool designed to help organizations take control of their spiraling cloud costs. Expanding on our current CCM capabilities, this trio empowers organizations to master cloud cost optimization through governance-as-code, automated commitment management, and efficient cluster node auto-scaling.

New Features and Updates

Code Repository

Improvements in developer experience through code suggestions

Developers and tools (such as security scanners) can now add and accept code suggestions within the pull request (PR) workflow. Developers and reviewers can also add comments to optimize the pull request (PR) workflow.

  • Learn tips on using branch rules effectively for your Git repository.

Continuous Delivery

Streamline Kubernetes Rollouts

Kubernetes Rollout commands are now supported natively in Harness. Simply provide the desired command, and which resource, manifest, or release to target and Harness will take care of the rest.

Continuous Integration

Securely build with Harness CI Cloud using a secure tunnel

For customers using Harness CI Cloud, SecureConnect now supports Windows and MacOS (along with Linux) based build infrastructure. Customers can easily generate SLSA L3 provenance using Harness’ build infrastructure.
Also, the new Test Intelligence step can easily speed up unit testing of Python, Ruby, and Java applications.

Infrastructure as Code Management

Make the impact of infrastructure code changes visible right in the PR

Harness IaCM now supports PR Automation, which directly populates plan and cost data into the PR process. The visibility of planned changes and costs helps developers significantly reduce the likelihood of errors when making resource changes.

Split Feature Management & Experimentation

Easily target different app versions using Semantic Version Targeting

Using the latest Split SDKs, you can more easily define targeting rules for new features based on app versions using attribute-based targeting. The SDK will then take care of the rest without needing to do any additional code configurations.
