Turbocharge Your Internal Developer Portal Onboarding and Maintenance with configure8's New Import and Export Feature
Easily make bulk edits or ingest bulk data without writing custom code.
Internal developer portals offer transformative benefits, but only if they are realized in a timely fashion. To ensure a rapid time to value, configure8 has always made onboarding easy thanks to multiple methods for data ingestion as well as automations to map data together. We found in certain scenarios, however, that users also want the flexibility to easily bulk import data without writing custom code to call our APIs. We’re therefore thrilled to announce our newest onboarding innovation that further streamlines onboarding and maintenance – bulk edits via TSV files.
configure8’s plugins make it easy to automatically pull in data from your tools and you can push in any data via our API and schematize it; however, we’ve introduced TSV import and export functionality to help you make bulk edits without writing custom code to call our APIs. Now you can leverage scripts to populate a TSV file, say with links for documentation and runbooks for each service, and easily ingest and map this data into your catalog without writing an API integration. You can use this new functionality to populate information about services and to make bulk edits, all in a file format you already know and can easily work with.
The process is straightforward and designed to be user-friendly:
The TSV feature offers numerous benefits:
In conclusion, configure8's TSV import and export is an innovative solution that enhances your ability to efficiently manage the universal catalog component of your internal developer portal. It's a testament to configure8's commitment to providing tools that are not only powerful but also easy to use, catering to the diverse needs of enterprise customers.
