Updates of R2Devops - What's new in July?
Let's take a look to all the improvements made in R2Devops in July 2022!
New month, new features! Let’s discover what changed in R2Devops in July.
We did some major changes on the website, especially regarding the design of some pages.
New design for the personal dashboard and connected pages¶
You might have seen it: the design of the pages accessible once connected was completely reviewed. Now it looks like an app, with the navigation bar displayed on the left side of your screen.
Don’t worry, you’ll find there the same information as before:
your GitLab and GitHub projects is the main page, so you can generate easily your pipeline.
your jobs are displayed under the Resources panel, along with the hub.
in the settings, you can modify your account and profile.
you can access easily the documentation from the bottom of the page.
Fill your GitLab token¶
It is now mandatory to fill your GitLab token in order to add a job in the hub. It is a prerequisite for you to add a job from a private repository.
Import a private job¶
This is a brand-new feature! Since the end of July, you can now add a job and make it private.
A private job is a job accessible only by you and the people you share the link of the job with, or the people working with you on the same GitLab and GitHub project.
Edit a pipeline directly once it’s generated¶
On your project dashboard, you can edit a pipeline directly once it’s generated. Until now, you had to save it, and then you could access the customization panel.
PNPM jobs are now supported on the Pipeline Generator¶
Do you know about PNPM? It’s a package manager you can use to replace NPM or Yarn, with better performances.
Other changes were made in r2devops.io, to enhance the navigation on the platform and ensure the best usability for our users.
Display your private jobs in your personal dashboard and in the hub¶
As we said in the major improvements, you can now add a private job in R2Devops. You can easily access it from your personal dashboard, in My Jobs section, as well as from the hub, selecting the private filter.
Improvement of the process to link your job¶
To simplify your journey on r2devops.io, we designed a new interface when you link a job. Now, the major steps are written in a breadcrumb trail. It makes it easier for you to know how many steps you’ll have to pass to link a job!👇
Delete your customization¶
Last week, we realized that you were allowed to customize a pipeline generated by R2Devops, but that you couldn’t delete the customization once done. It’s now fixed!
Save and trigger your pipeline after customization¶
Another minor improvement: you can now save or save and trigger your pipeline after customization, directly from R2Devops!
Jobs’ updates and new jobs¶
During the past month, we updated many official jobs of R2Devops. Among them:
