Buddy 2.0: Say hello to new integrations! 🔥

January 15, 2021

Dear beloved,
As the next part of the ongoing transition to Buddy 2.0, this week we released a completely revamped integrations view. Here's what's been changed:

  1. New view of integration list with categories and more details
  2. New view of adding and editing integrations
  3. New permissions in integrations (Admin in project and Group in project)

Below we break down each point into details.

Integrations list

Existing integrations are now displayed as a list with access scopes and sharing settings:

A green dot by an integration means that it is used in a pipeline somewhere in the workspace. This way you immediately know if it can or cannot be safely removed.

You can check where an integration is used by clicking the Usage tab in its details.Here you can see that the integration is used in two more workspaces. Below are listed pipelines and actions using the integration in the current workspace:

Adding and editing

At the moment, Buddy integrates with 29 third-party services:

Integrating with a service unlocks actions that you can use in your pipeline. For example, integrating with DigitalOcean will let you deploy files to Digital Ocean droplets and Spaces, run doctl commands, and clear Spaces CDN.

Searching, adding, and managing integrations is now much easier thanks to categories and the search tool. For example, when adding a new integration you can narrow the type of services you are looking for to Platform-as-a-Service:

Clicking a service launches a new page where you can see which actions will become available for your pipelines upon configuration:

The bottom part of the screen provides some useful info on how the selected 3rd-party service works within Buddy's infrastructure:

Configuring details and scopes

Once you authorize Buddy into your service, you will be able to configure the details such as authorization mode or scope of access. This view has also been improved for better usability. For example, sensitive data is easier to identify, and we have added some useful links at the bottom that will help you get started and solve possible issues with the associated actions:

Webhooks

Last but not least, webhooks have been moved from the workspace settings to the integrations tab. You can find them in the Others section.

We do recommend using the HTTP Request action directly in the pipeline instead of configuring system webhooks.

Please mind that during the transition not everything will be perfect. We have to ask you for a little bit of patience until the new version has fully arrived. Also, not all changes are final. Looking forward to your feedback so we can make Buddy the best ever!
