The month of April has been a trying month for many of us around the global community. At Harness, on top of wishing everyone well and to stay safe, we have been continuing to innovate to allow our clients to better serve their clients. As much as we love seeing everyone face to face, we went virtual for enabling folks along their Continuous Delivery journey with virtual HarnessUs and released our first inaugural Continuous Delivery Insights report which can be easily downloaded.  Let’s take a look at what’s been moving and shaking at Harness in the past month. 

Pipeline Resume – Coming Soon

Everything doesn’t go according to plan the first time; why do you think they make pencils with erasers on them. Despite how much confidence we have in our pipelines, there is sometimes a need to pick up where we left off.  With the Pipeline Resume feature, you can re-launch the pipeline at the stage where the failure occurred.

Additional Updates

  • Connect to your platforms with trusted security.  We’re expanding our Secrets feature set to allow sensitive configurations (such as password protection) for Cloud Connectors within Harness. 
  • Tags in Harness allows you to filter on user-defined metadata. Tags can now be applied to Pipeline/Workflow executions via user interface or programmatically, for example, the output of a shell script. With these newly added tags, you can evaluate an expression based on the tags. 

Continuous Delivery Insights 2020

We are very fortunate to talk to organizations of varying sizes and in varying stages of their Continuous Journey. When we engage with organizations, we help do a Continuous Delivery maturity assessment called a CDCA or a Continuous Delivery Capability Assessment. We analyzed and aggregated over 100 responses helping shine light on common Continuous Delivery challenges. Get your copy of Continuous Delivery Insights 2020 today to learn valuable insights. 

Virtual HarnessU

In the month of April, we had five virtual HarnessUs to reach our global audience. We compiled a list of top questions we received during our virtual HarnessUs. We are excited to continue the virtual HarnessUs to better prepare everyone for Continuous Delivery in the upcoming months.
