Neues Security Alert Dashboard
The dashboard differentiates between conspicuous network activities that should be blocked and those that simply require more attention from the administrator in order to keep the interruption for users as low as possible. This is to ensure the security and availability of production environments.
The test results can then be found in the security dashboard.
Read-only and support for DORA metrics
The read-only release of an instance is intended to reduce the downtime with increasing administrative tasks.
GitLab 13.9 also introduces group-level release analytics to expand support for DORA metrics. DORA stands for DevOps Research and Assessment. Behind this is a research program, led by a DORA research team, that provides companies with metrics for adopting DevOps that should help them achieve a high level of performance in software development and deployment.
The se metrics are now aggregated in a group for projects. A new counter for failed tests in unit test reports and a new metric for merge requests should help developers to expand and understand the factors that are decisive for greater efficiency.
Looking for redundancies in the configuration
The update brings a new function that should enable the reuse of a CI / CD configuration from any job in a pipeline – even if it is in a different file.
In addition, configurations can be displayed in an extended version. This should be of particular interest to developers who have divided the configuration of the pipeline into several files. More information about the update can be found in the post on the official GitLab blog.
