Cisco announced new software-delivered solutions designed to simplify IT operations across on-premise data centers and multicloud environments.
ServiceNow announced four new external DevOps integrations with Continuous Improvement/Continues Delivery (CI/CD) toolsets.
These four new integrations help IT developers accelerate CI/CD pipeline configuration when building applications on the Now Platform, allowing them to set up pipelines in their favorite developer tools.
The four new CI/CD integrations include:
- Azure Pipelines extension on Visual Studio Marketplace
- Jenkins Plugin on the Jenkins Plugins Index
- GitHub Actions on the GitHub Marketplace
- GitLab with pipeline examples and build steps in a Docker image
The source control innovations started with our New York release and CI/CD capabilities via APIs from our Orlando release. These out-of-the-box integrations provide templates for ServiceNow CI/CD pipeline automation and respective CI/CD tooling. As a result, developers using our CI/CD APIs no longer need to build custom API wrappers from scratch. These integrations between third-party CI/CD toolsets and the Now Platform are offered and supported directly by ServiceNow.
"With these new integrations, we are giving developers a choice to either manage CI/CD within or outside of the Now Platform. If developers are using our platform natively for CI/CD, the CI/CD Spoke is available for developers to build automated pipelines in Flow Designer for testing and deploying Now Platform applications," said Marcus Torres, VP Product Management - Platform, ServiceNow. "The four new integrations encourage adoption of DevOps practices when developing on ServiceNow, using scoped and global applications by reducing the time and effort to set up CI/CD pipelines. And they meet the requirements of mature DevOps practitioners who want development on ServiceNow to look and work just like development on anything else at their company."
Three of the four integrations are available now. The GitHub actions will be available in November on the GitHub Marketplace.
