Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service

The Armory crew has been hard at work to improve Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service throughout December and into January. In addition to new ways to learn the platform, we’ve released several enhancements and quality of life improvements. 

New Training – Enable Continuous Deployment with CD-as-a-Service

Learn continuous deployment best practices with our new Wilco Quest. Wilco is known as the “flight simulator” for software developers and enables developers to acquire and practice skills on-demand in a production-like environment. Try out our new Quest to Enable Continuous Deployment with CD-as-a-Service or learn more in this blog post.

Support for Role Based Access Controls

CD-as-a-Service now allows you to restrict user access with custom roles.

Continuous Deployment Self Hosted – Release 2.28.2

In addition to a ton of quality of life improvements and bug fixes, we’ve released new enhancements to Pipelines as Code, BitBucket PR handling, and error logs. We released three early access features behind a feature flag. If you would like to enable these early access features to try out in your environment, open a support ticket or reach out to your Technical Account Manager directly to get started. 

New Pipelines as Code Multi-Branch Enhancement – Early Access

Now you can configure Pipelines as Code to pull Dinghyfiles from multiple branches on the same repo. Cut out the tedious task of managing multiple repos; have a single repo for Spinnaker application pipelines.

Enhanced BitBucket Server Pull Request Handling – Early Access

Trigger Spinnaker pipelines natively when pull requests are opened in BitBucket with newly added events including PR opened, deleted, and declined. Learn more about this BitBucket enhancement and how to enable it in Spinnaker in the full 2.28.2 Release Notes.

Terraform Template Fix – Early Access

We’ve done some work to fix an issue with SpEL expression failures appearing while using Terraformer to serialize data from a Terraform Plan execution. With this feature flag fix enabled, you will be able to use the Terraform template file provider. Please open a support ticket if you need this fix. 

Improved Error Log UI

The error log messages received in the UI are now human readable and more user friendly. In place of computer data, logs are now converted into user friendly messages.
