New feature: Import / export pipelines

As you know very well, we put special emphasis on reducing pains with configuring your CI/CD process. Every delivery pipeline can be configured literally in a dozen of minutes.

This is especially important for those who never tried automation in fear of complicated and time-consuming configuration. Automation veterans, on the other hand, are free to set up their delivery with a YAML file. What we missed, however, was the ability to export and import pipelines from the GUI. For example, if you wanted to move them between workspaces, or make a backup of your process.

As one of our users put it:

We want to actually get rid off the [repository] yaml config due to the circumstance of having different yamls in different branches (we'd like to have a global overview), in that case GUI editing would be way better to avoid unnecessary git management.

We're happy to announce the option is now available in the Pipelines tab:

Clicking the export option will generate a file with all the details of the selected pipelines. Importing the file will re-create the pipelines in the currently viewed project.
