Codefresh is excited to partner with Atlassian on their new Open DevOps launch. Codefresh is offering native support for connecting the two platforms and giving better visibility on deployments and features of each deployment for our mutual customers.
At the heart of this integration is the Codefresh App; which can be found on the Atlassian Marketplace. Simply define Codefresh as the CI/CD partner that will connect to Atlassian’s DevOps API.
With the integration in place, any Codefresh pipeline can now be enhanced with a special pipeline step for Jira which enhances the container metadata, and respective pipeline, with the exact Jira issues implemented in this feature and other information such as the Pull Requested responsible for the selected Jira issues.
Once inside Jira, each issue will be marked with information about the release it was deployed:
At the same time, the new Deployments dashboard in Jira will be automatically populated with a complete timeline of all deployment environments and associated Jira issues. This gives you greater visibility on the status of each Jira issue and helps you understand what is the state of each new feature and when you can expect to see it in each deployment environment.
The connection between Jira and Codefresh is bidirectional. Apart from enabling the Deployments dashboard in Jira, you will also get additional information in the GitOps dashboard in Codefresh.
Now for each deployment environment, you will see a complete history of releases with extra information for which Jira tickets go into the release and which Pull Requests were responsible for these tickets.
Codefresh already has native support for Bitbucket; making this integration even easier if you also use Bitbucket for Git hosting in addition to Atlassian Jira.
With this integration, you have a comprehensive overview of the full lifecycle of each new feature and can easily answer some of the most frequently asked questions in software management such as, what features are deployed on environment X, or whether Jira ticket Y is present on a specific environment.
