What's New in UrbanCode Deploy 7.0
IBM UrbanCode Deploy 7.0: No Limits!
IBM UrbanCode Deploy 7.0 delivers product scalability and capabilities for enterprises who are rapidly advancing their IT transformation. With this new version, UrbanCode Deploy enables you to manage every application in your enterprise with consistency security, visibility, lower cost and at the scale you need.
Scale Without Boundary
UrbanCode Deploy 7.0 has new server/agent communication technology that has been tested to support up to 100,000 online agents, which is about a 10x increase over prior versions! This new communication technology is based on websockets and will be the default setting for new installations. Customers upgrading from prior versions will need to opt-in to this capability.
Advanced Continuous Delivery Insights
Leverage your UCD data to gain visibility into your deployments and to easily generate audit reports using the new UrbanCode Velocity Community Edition. Reports visualize how long deployments take, which fail and succeed and many important trends based on your deployment data. Learn how to download the no-fee community version of Velocity here.
Run UCD in Containers
You can now choose to run UrbanCode Deploy in containers on IBM Cloud Private or OpenShift. Container support is available on zLinux, x86 or Power LE platforms. See further documentation at IBM Cloud Private and OpenShift.
Delta Deploy and Merge for Mainframe
For deployments to the mainframe, UrbanCode Deploy 7.0 allows you to deploy only changed data set members as well as to merge multiple incremental versions into one for moving to the next environment. A PDF manual of z/OS agent security settings with sample RACF commands is also available.
Full Stack Terraform Template Support
Leverage the rich graphical and text-based editing experience in the UrbanCode Deploy’s BluePrint Designer to create full-stack Terraform templates including infrastructure, middleware, and application resources. Also create, publish, and update Terraform templates into IBM Cloud Automation Manager (CAM), IBM Cloud Private’s Hybrid Cloud management solution. See more on the integration.
Modernized User Interface
Enjoy an updated user interface layout that brings a fresh look and feel while providing design consistency across the UrbanCode portfolio. Current customers will also appreciate the continuity of the user experience from prior versions to ensure minimal transitional impact.
Safe Edit (BETA)
UrbanCode is looking for feedback on its new Safe Edit functionality which introduces change management functionality into the process designer, making it easy to lock processes for editing, and approve process changes. If you are interested learning more or trying this functionality, please contact you sales representative and have them put you in touch with our development team.
New integration with CyberArk
UCD 7.0 makes it easy to use CyberArk Application Identity Manager, part of the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution, in your deployment processes. CyberArk enables organizations to protect critical business systems by eliminating hard-coded credentials from application scripts, configuration files and software code, and removing SSH keys from servers where they are used by applications and scripts.
