Runops Releases #20

We are excited to announce many of the top requested features that we released over the last few weeks. Let's dive in!

Runops API is out#

You can start using the Runops API to build automations and integrate them with your existing tools. The list of endpoints and their specification is available in the docs ( One use case requested by many of you was the user management API to integrate existing employee credentials provisioning systems, and we released it!

User management#

You can now add, update, and remove users using the Runops CLI. The create users option is an additional way to bring new members to Runops, in addition to the self-register option from Slack and CLI. You can also update user's status to activate/deactivate accounts and change users' teams and roles.

Role-based access control#

Control who can access what Targets. You can now group Targets into roles and attach these roles to users. A user only sees the Targets allowed by their roles.

Kubernetes Secrets support#

You can now store secrets and configurations in your Kubernetes Cluster secrets. In addition to Hashicorp Vault and AWS Secrets Manager, this new secrets storage mechanism makes it easier to get started before you move to a proper Secrets Manager.

🎨 Improved outputs in the CLI#

You won't see JSON outputs as the result of commands anymore. The CLI now displays all outputs as tables. When creating Targets or running Tasks with reviews, the CLI displays all the information you need in an easy-to-read table.

✔️Improved validations for Tasks execution#

You will get a detailed error message when a specific secret or configuration is missing for a given Target type. The agent now performs an extensive set of validations before running a Task. Works both when creating a Target or running Tasks.

🔌 New integrations#

You can use a range of new integrations in Runops. Use bash for running arbitrary shell commands. With k8s-apply you provide a YAML, and Runops applies it to Kubernetes clusters (we are using this one internally). Use rails to access a Rails application and rails-console get a Rails console experience, but with all the controls of Runops. You can check the complete list of integration in the docs:

📑 Revamped docs#

You will have a better navigation experience in the documentation. Find dedicated sections to end-users and operators in the menu. The docs also got additional guides detailing the Kubernetes Secrets support. Check it out:
