Runops Releases #22

Presenting: The Runops Web App!#

You can now use Runops in the browser! The web app experience is live for a few weeks and the feedback has been fantastic. Here are some of the things users love in the web app:

Tasks Inbox

You can view your Tasks' history in a simple, yet powerful list. In the Tasks' detail view you can see review information, script, and logs!


Admins using the web app can manage users, targets and agents!

  • Create, deactivate, and update users' groups.
  • Create and update Targets.
  • See your organizations' connected agents and metadata.

Welcome groups, farewell #

Now, instead of controlling access to Targets using roles, and reviews with teams, you use only one property: groups. Plus, we added the capability of controlling access to templates using groups.

Reliability Enhancements#

We made some structural changes in the last few weeks to Runops. Despite the size of the changes, most of you didn't even notice it. This is because we invested a lot of time in improving our reliability. We are not only fixing problems faster when they happen, but even fixing them before you notice. Some of these improvements include:

  • Runops Agent runtime instrumentation. The Runops Agent now loads and exports runtime configurations. This improves our visibility into problems and increases our abilities to fix problems in the agent without involving your team.

  • Central monitoring tool. All our systems now use the same central error monitoring and tracking system. This system makes sure that we get notifications for any problem that happens in any system. Notifications include all the metadata on the problem, including the individual user and organization. This is why you get messages from our team when you have problems even before you think about reaching out.

Welcome Groups, farewell Teams and Roles

We simplified the Runops authorization mechanism!

Now, instead of controlling access to Targets using roles, and reviews with teams, you use only one property: groups.

Plus, we added the capability of controlling access to templates using groups.

What are groups?#

Groups are a simple concept to grasp and will enable us to add even more powerful features in the future. In a nutshell, you add users to one or more groups. Groups can map to your teams, squads, locations, anything you want. With these groups, you then manage access to Target, Reviews, Templates, and more. It's a very light and easy to use RBAC mechanism.

What do you have to do?#

Nothing. We migrated all your teams and roles to the groups property.

You don't have to do anything.

Just use groups the same way you used teams and roles from now on.

What about Roles and Teams?#

The fields team and 'roles` of the user are still there. They are now only metadata about the user to help identify the user in the Slack review card. These fields won't be use for decisions anymore.

When does this ship?#

We are rolling out this feature over the next couple days. We have been using it for a few weeks and it's amazing! Your organization should get it soon.

Where can I learn more?#

See you later!
