New features

  • New action: Elastic Beanstalk Monitoring
  • New action: AWS CLI
  • New action: Sleep. You can use it to introduce intervals between actions – for example in order to wait until your application has started


  • It is now possible to use Buddy parameters in the Docker image build action, for example use ${} in the repository field
  • We've added an a cache control option to the Google Cloud Storage action
  • Until now, the Docker image in build actions was pulled once and updated only when the execution was run without the cache which forced some of our users to run builds without cached files. From now on the image in a specific tag is pulled on every execution

Bug fixes

  • Fixed bug with subdirectories in the Elastic Beanstalk action not getting excluded properly on deployment
  • On rare occasions, processing buddy.yml would produce "Integration not found" error. Fixed. Big thanks to Rian for reporting that \o/
  • Our previous release was causing errors in wildcard pipelines: merged commits were not triggering executions. Bug found and fixed within 3 hours since the release – another example that covering 85% of code with tests is still not enough
  • Fixed bug with environment variables in the header of the HTTP action not being properly served
