Policy engine

Policy engine enables engineering managers and leaders to define rules related to the development process of a product or feature. Rules can enforce specific steps that drive best practices, compliance or governance requirements for the process, which help ensure higher quality, more stable software for the customer.

Feature delivery management

Using Feature delivery management, product stakeholder users can manage all features across all products allowing them to plan development priority, track progress and address any blockers for timely delivery. They can associate product features with the problem being solved in the context of RFEs, call reports and customer feedback.

Cross-functional users in an organization will understand where a feature is in its development, in order to proactively plan communication activity and other work to ensure a positive customer experience when the feature is rolled out.

Jira Cloud integration

Jira Cloud integration allows users to link Jira cloud projects to associated products, and get visibility into all tickets and related data, enabling more efficient prioritization and tracking of all work related to those projects.

January 2020

New Jenkins integration

Jenkins integration lets users connect a product to an existing Jenkins master to get visibility into all the jobs and events related to that product being developed. Through the dashboard, users can see the status of last build (success/failed) and duration to understand how work is progressing or being held up.

Enhanced user experience, new security guide

This is the second update for the preview release of CloudBees SDM to customers participating in the link: preview program.

Unified experience foundation:

Users will have a unified sign-on to access all products their organization is subscribed to within the CloudBees suite of products, including CloudBees platform for SDM. This reduces time and confusion having to sign into multiple CloudBees products with different experiences.

The launch of and the migration to HoneyUI elements provide the foundation for the unified experience.

Integration management

Managing integrations provides one place to easily and quickly manage all tool integrations needed to develop products and features in CloudBees SDM. Users can see all tool integrations available and be able to add, remove, and maintain those integrations based on the work that needs to be done.

Updated status labels

Status labels provide an immediate indicator of issues that need attention. These labels are used on Overview and Pull requests screens.

Any repository or pull request that needs attention has a status label. These labels range from severe, such as builds failing, to minor, such as ready to merge. Each label indicates that some action is required.

New security guide details data security, architecture, source scanning

The new CloudBees SDM security guide provides information about data security, system architecture, as well as integrations and security. CloudBees SDM also uses WhiteSource to scan every deployment to detect and prioritize work on security issues found in open source components.
