GitLab 13.11 released with Kubernetes Agent, Compliant Pipelines, and features for speedier pipelines - and much more!
On this Earth Day we are thinking about growth. Our customers are scaling their DevOps practices and with growth comes the need for even greater efficiencies and automated controls. The GitLab Kubernetes Agent is now available on GitLab.com to help you benefit from fast, pull-based deployments to your cluster, while GitLab.com manages the necessary server-side components of the Agent. Compliant Pipeline Configurations let you define enforceable pipelines that will run for any project assigned a corresponding compliance framework, even custom ones. We also have a host of features to improve pipeline efficiency and measurement, to provide On-call Scheduling, and even more security enhancements. These are just a few of the 50+ significant new features and improvements in this release.
Controls can keep your automation on track as you grow and scale while simplifying compliance efforts. The GitLab Kubernetes Agent is core to GitLab's Kubernetes integrations and is now available on GitLab.com. The Agent-based integration supports pull-based deployments which are preferred by security and quickly becoming a popular method for Kubernetes deployment practices. The agent also supports Network Security policy integration and alerts which enables fine-tuned RBAC controls within your clusters. Compliant Pipeline Configurations let you enforce a higher degree of separation of duties and reduce your business risks by defining enforceable pipelines that will run for any project assigned a corresponding compliance framework. At the same time, Custom Compliance Framework Labels allow you to use your own requirements beyond the usual ones like PCI, HIPPA and such. The new Admin Mode increases security and control of your GitLab instance by requiring admin users to reverify their credentials before running administrative commands. Audit reports are easier now too with a new export feature in your self-managed GitLab instance to see, all in one place, what groups, subgroups, and projects users have access to.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
