We are pleased to announce the general availability of new language support for Toolchains-as-Code capabilities in IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery.

The new IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery Java, Python and Node.js SDKs allow developers to programmatically interact with the IBM Cloud Toolchain and Tekton Pipeline API services and add to the Go language support that was previously available.

In a previous blog article, we discussed the benefits of managing your Toolchains- and Pipelines-as-Code, which include the following:

  • Easier management of multiple toolchain templates for large organizations with many projects.
  • Version-controlled toolchains and pipelines for enhanced regulatory compliance.
  • Programmatic access via scripting or the command line to toolchains and pipelines, providing the ability for greater automation instead of manual actions using the cloud console UI.

What’s included in the new language support for Toolchains-as-Code?

The new language capabilities within IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery benefit developers and development teams alike, and they include the following:

  • The Continuous Delivery open source SDKs for Python, Java and Node.js allow developers to programmatically interact with Toolchains and Tekton pipelines.
  • The Continuous Delivery Toolchain HTTP APIs for Python, Java and Node.js provide the following functions, based on the user’s IAM permissions:
    • Create, read, update and delete toolchains.
    • Read, provision and update tool integrations.
    • Create, read, update and delete toolchain integrations.
  • The Continuous Delivery Tekton Pipeline HTTP APIs for Python, Java and Node.js provide the following functions, based on the user’s IAM permissions:
    • Create and delete Tekton pipeline instances.
    • Get and update Tekton pipeline data.
    • Get, list and delete pipeline run records.
    • Trigger, rerun or cancel a pipeline run.
    • Get a list of pipeline run log objects.
    • Get the log content of a pipeline run step.
    • List pipeline definitions.
    • Create, retrieve, edit or delete single pipeline definition entries.
    • List the pipeline’s environment properties.
    • Get, create, delete or replace the value of single pipeline environment properties.
    • List pipeline triggers.
    • Get, create, edit, delete or duplicate pipeline triggers.
    • List trigger properties.
    • Get, create, replace or delete trigger properties.
  • The Continuous Delivery service documentation has more than 30 topics worth of API and SDK examples and guidance. For example, each API code snippet is provided in Python, Java, and Node.js flavors.

Next steps

We hope you’ll give the new language support for Toolchains-as-Code a try. We’ll be continuing to add new features, but if you’d like to share any feedback with us or suggest additional capabilities you’d like to see, you can reach out to the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery development team by joining us on Slack.
