Docker Hub pull limit in Buddy On-Premises

Docker Hub pull limit in Buddy On-Premises

Dear users of Buddy On-Premises, Pipelines in Buddy are based on Docker images – basically every action is run in a Docker container. The containers are run on the basis of Docker images pulled from Docker Hub.

On November 1, 2020, Docker Hub will introduce limits on the number of pulls that can be performed in a specific time interval. To avoid problems with your builds, you need to configure Docker Hub as a third party app in your Buddy instance.

This only refers to standalone installations of Buddy – if you're using Buddy in cloud, this is no concern to you.

Sandboxes now available in all paid accounts! 💸🔥

Sandboxes now available in all paid accounts! 💸🔥

Two months ago we launched a closed beta of Sandboxes 2.0 – dynamically created staging environments allowing developers to serve their application from the chosen branch, tag, or pull request. The interest was overwhelming, forcing us to split the beta-testers into several parties and grant entry in stages.

In the past weeks, we received tons of feedback that we happily utilized to upgrade the feature and fix bugs. Now, it's time for a step up before we finally release Sandboxes 2.0 to the public.

Introducing: Integration with Microsoft Teams

Introducing: Integration with Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has become the messaging service of choice for many companies in 2020. Be it due to the pandemics, company politics, or attachment to Redmond's products in general – or everything at once, perhaps – in the past months we received a great deal of requests to add an integration with MS Teams. We're happy to announce that from this week onwards you can send notifications on finished builds, deployments, and websites awaiting review by means of a dedicated MS Teams action. 📨
