Modern cloud providers enable teams to scale their applications, services and supporting development infrastructure. We’re introducing support for environments on demand that will give you the power to spin up and tear down the infrastructure as needed. With dynamic environments, you can easily provision infrastructure to test new features branches, perform integration testing, reproduce bugs and more. This allows teams to get faster feedback, remove bottlenecks and cut costs.
ServiceNow is one of the leading ITSM solutions and it’s common for companies to manage changes with it. We are building native integration with ServiceNow so teams can link releases to change requests and pause deployments to production until approvals are met.
Octopus is adding full support to version control your configuration settings alongside your deployment process and application code to Config as Code in Octopus. This means you get all the benefits of “Config as Code” for your application and infrastructure configuration that change as you deploy through your environments. You’ll also have full control over variable scoping with a choice between the Octopus UI or your favorite text editor.
Octopus is adding configuration as code support for runbook processes. This complements our existing support for version controlled deployment processes, and it means you can see your operations process in your Git repo next to your related application code or other operation files.
When Config as Code is enabled for a project, you can continue to use the Octopus UI as you always have, or you can edit the text files in your favorite editor.
We’ll make it easier for you to improve your DevOps performance by surfacing key metrics such as the big four DORA metrics.
