What platforms can I deploy to using Delivery Pipeline?

You can deploy applications to Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes clusters on the IBM Cloud™. In addition, with the use of Tekton-based pipelines and Private Pipeline workers, toolchains can be enhanced with a new private worker tool integration that allows pipeline stages to be configured to run on external Kubernetes environments. Supported platforms include the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, IBM Cloud Private, Docker on Desktop, or Red Hat® OpenShift®.

I use Rational Team Concert. Can that be integrated into my delivery pipeline?

Yes. The Rational Team Concert integration not only adds a card to your toolchain for quick access to your work items, it also adds tags to the work items that have been deployed. Such tags allow you to run powerful queries for tracking deployment of code changes as well as build useful Rational Team Concert dashboards.

How do I manage access to my DevOps toolchain?

You can manage access to your toolchain via the Manage tab on the toolchain page. When you create a toolchain, the toolchain’s organization is added with ADMIN rights by default. This means all members of the toolchain’s organization can view, modify, and delete the toolchain. You can restrict access to the toolchain by only allowing specific users to view it, and other users to administer it.

How can I create my own toolchain template to share with my team?

Although you can create a toolchain from a template, you might want different tool integrations or other customizations. You can create a custom toolchain template and share it so that others can use it. There are 6 steps to customizing a template for your use.

  1. Fork and clone the Simple Cloud Foundry toolchain template in GitHub
  2. Explore and update the toolchain.yml file
  3. Explore and update the pipeline.yml file
  4. Test your updates
  5. Add pre-built or custom tool integrations to your template
