Important: Velocity template deactivation notice

This is a notice that from November 3, 2020, Buddy parameters will be permanently deactivated in all workspaces. The parameters have been deprecated for 2 years now. If you are still using them in your pipelines, please replace them with Buddy ENV VARs as soon as possible or your pipelines might not work properly.
We were forced to make this decision as the Velocity engine on which the parameters are based generates compatibility issues with new features.

How to check if you use Velocity

This refers to all workspaces registered before September 21, 2018. If you signed up later or never used Buddy parameters in your account, this is no concern to you.

If you are not sure if you are using Velocity in your pipelines, go to the Project settings and look for the velocity switch at the bottom. Flip the switch off and run the pipeline(s) in the project to see if there are any errors in scripts or notifications:
