Introducing Credential Health and Resource Linkages
Making it even easier to discover essential information and keep data fresh.
We’re excited to announce two new features that help your developers move faster and build better software with self-serve access to the knowledge and functionality they need. With our new Credential Health and Resource Linkage features, you’ll be able to better maintain connections to fresh data as well as easily understand the relationships between your resources and how each relates to services and environments.
What’s the difference between an IDP and a hand-built static spreadsheet? Programmatic access to information contained in your toolchain, for starters.
API-driven integrations make it easy to set-up your IDP as well as keep its content up-to-date. But what happens when the access tokens enabling these integrations expire? This can be a challenge, especially if you’re an enterprise with a polyglot toolchain and/or multiple owners across your toolchain.
With Credential Health, credential administrators receive notifications when their tokens expire. And if an issue does arise, they can remediate it with just one click. Additionally, administrators can review all credentials, their owners, and their status in a single table.
Relationships are important in life and in your IDP. In life, a family tree is a representation of parents, children and relatives; however, today’s IDPs only capture dependents and dependencies at the service level. This leaves developers and operations in the dark or forced to switch context and navigate a clunky cloud console when it comes to understanding resource relationships.
With Resource Linkages, not only can you move from service to environment to resource or directly find a resource in your catalog, but you can now understand parent / child relationships as well as relatives of a resource. This means you can easily answer questions like:
These linkages aren’t just for K8s, configure8 brings in dozens of cloud resource types and now enables you to understand your relationships between and among them at a glance.
At configure8, we’re committed to helping your developers move faster and build better software with self-serve access to the knowledge and functionality they need. With our new Credential Health and Resource Linkages features, we’re confident that we’re one step closer to achieving this goal.
