OverOps joined the CloudBees Technical Alliance Partner Program (TAPP), deepening its commitment to ensuring software reliability for the global CloudBees and Jenkins user communities.

In addition to this new alliance, OverOps debuted enhancements to its Jenkins plugin that streamline the process of blocking unstable builds from reaching production using OverOps code quality gates.

This new partnership with CloudBees’ end-to-end continuous Software Delivery Management system allows joint users to identify and resolve critical issues with the OverOps plugin and prevent negative impact to the customer experience.

“OverOps is driving software quality in mission-critical applications and we are thrilled to have them join us as a TAPP Premier member,” said Francois Dechery, CSO and co-founder, CloudBees. “Continuous Reliability complements CloudBees offerings around continuous integration and continuous delivery. OverOps provides seamless integration with code quality gates for identifying critical runtime errors in new releases. We welcome OverOps to the CloudBees ecosystem.”

Organizations are under unprecedented pressure to deliver innovative digital experiences faster, and CI/CD solutions like those that CloudBees offers have become critical to accelerating software development and delivery. However, as release velocity increases, so does the risk to code quality. Continuous Reliability (CR) has emerged as a new way to help prevent these rapid code changes from impacting the customer through the combination of code quality gates, contextual feedback loops and observability within a CI/CD workflow.

The OverOps continuous reliability plugin for CloudBees CI (formerly CloudBees Core) helps organizations take a proactive approach to code quality within the CI pipeline. OverOps analyzes code at runtime to identify all new, increasing, resurfaced and critical errors in a release � even those missed by test automattion. From there, the OverOps solution generates a code quality report that takes into account all severe issues with the potential to impact end users and application functionality. OverOps quality gates help determine if code is safe to promote, and automatically block unstable releases from moving forward to production. Issues are then routed back to the right developer to resolve using OverOps event analysis, eliminating finger pointing between Dev and QA.

The upgraded OverOps plugin for CloudBees CI offers a new, streamlined user experience that simplifies the process of reviewing and addressing critical issues. Building on the existing OverOps Quality Report, the integration now provides a high-level snapshot that summarizes the most pressing issues and lets users see at-a-glance which quality gates failed. They can then drill into the specific errors and event analysis directly from the summary. Try out the updated integration here.

“Software reliability in the CI pipeline has traditionally been limited to a mix of static analysis, unit test output and grepping logs. Without feedback loops and insight into critical runtime errors, it’s impossible for engineering teams to validate the quality of their build and prevent poor quality code from reaching production,” said Eric Mizell, VP of Solution Engineering at OverOps. “We’re thrilled to partner with CloudBees to help address this challenge. The combination of CloudBees’ CI/CD offerings and OverOps’ CR quality gates allows organizations to ensure speed and reliability across the entire software delivery lifecycle, from development to production.”
