Sensitive Data Encryption in YAML

From this week onward, all sensitive data exported to YAML will be encrypted and salted. This includes server passwords, keys, and variables marked as encrypted. It is also possible to generate encrypted values directly in Buddy using our YAML helper.

Buddy v2.1.47 Released (18-12-2018)

New features

  • Secure sensitive data in YAML/API. All passwords, private keys and other sensitive data can now be sent in an encrypted form. Generating a YAML from our helper returns encrypted values as well

Improvements

  • Added information with the amount of RAM in the current plan to errors where memory was exceeded
  • It is now possible to export a part of the container’s filesystem in the Docker build and run actions

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug with the progress bar exceeding 100% in deployment actions in cases where the deployment had a lot of files and folders
  • If the Postgres service started incorrectly, there was an error with fetching the log from this service - now you can properly review the logs
  • Sometimes listing elements in the AWS actions didn’t return the whole list. We have improved pagination and all elements should now be returned correctly
  • Multiple improvements in Rest API responses

Buddy v2.1.46 Released (11-12-2018)

Improvements

  • Added suggestions for commands that can be moved to the Environment configuration tab in build actions, e.g. apt-get install
  • Added kubectl support in v1.12.3 and 1.13.0 in Kubernetes actions
  • Added a warning about the maximum number of parallel actions allowed in the plan

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug with the pipeline progress bar on the cards view stopping on 10% with no visible advancement. Now the bar is filling up properly from 0 to 100%
  • Fixed a bug with some project names (e.g. api) being forbidden by the system

Buddy v2.1.44 Released (04-12-2018)

New features

  • Action-specific variables – you can now add variables that will be available only in builds and Run image action
  • Use custom Docker images without pushing them to the registry

Improvements

  • New region in the New Relic action – you can now send notifications to Europe (before, only the US was available)
  • Pipeline and execution views are now loading faster. This solves the problem with executions that contained a lot of git fetch logs (thanks, Ilya!)
  • Improved Angular CLI configuration for Karma tests

Bugfixes

  • On some occasions, changing the authentication mode in SSH and SFTP actions altered the connection details to the server. Fixed!

New feature: Deploy & Invoke Google Cloud Functions

With Google picking up the pace in serverless computing, Buddy doesn’t lag behind delivering two new actions that will let you deploy and invoke GCloud Functions.

In short, Functions act as application backends with no server provisioning or management, which is especially good for projects whose traffic patterns are hard to predict. They are event driven, which means they’re executed only when cloud events occur.

Buddy v2.1.43 Released (27-11-2018)

New features

Improvements

  • In the CloudFront action, only the first 100 distributions were getting listed. From now on, you can choose from all distributions available
  • The text editor on the iOS has been improved for better display

Bugfixes

  • Calling the API methods was taking a very long time (~4s). All times are now back to normal
  • Fixed a bug with running parallel actions if one of them was disabled

Parallel actions: Invitation to Beta

Fasten up your seatbelts and hold on to something as parallel actions are making their way to Buddy!

The feature many of you have been waiting for is soon to land on Buddy’s production servers. It will allow you to considerably save time on development and operations: for example, by running multiple deployments at once, or split tests in two and run them in parallel.
