I am super excited to announce our newest Cloud Manager Pipeline Notifications Initialyzer. This Initialyzer app allows you to send your Cloud Manager CI/CD Pipeline Notifications to Slack. It can be deployed as Adobe FireFly App or an AWS Lambda function and, allows you to post all the details your developers need to monitor your Cloud Manager builds, failures, code quality, and deployment status without ever having to log into the Cloud Manager. Contact Us now for a quick demo!
For customers using AEMaaCS, using Cloud Manager is the only way to deploy code to AEM. A lot of Adobe Managed Services customers have also started migrating to the Cloud Manager for their CI/CD pipelines. Chances are, if you have moved to Cloud Manager, you might find monitoring builds in CM as a cumbersome step especially if you used something like Jenkins before and, had notifications configured with Slack, Microsoft teams or email.
With Cloud Manager if a build failure occurs, the developers (who often may not even have access to CM) have to navigate to the Cloud Manager site > view pipeline and download logs to their local before they can analyze them. Based on our experience supporting many enterprise customers, developers are so used to monitoring and receiving build notifications via Slack as part of their standard workflow, and making them jump through hoops to get valuable information is not the most efficient approach.
The Cloud Manager Slack Notification in Action
Below I will showcase the different types of Pipeline Notifications and how they appear in Slack.
Pipeline Started Notification
This example showcases how the Cloud Manager Pipeline started & Execution Step notification appears in Slack.
Pipeline Details & Step Details buttons – allow folks with Cloud Manager access a 1-Click access to the details of the pipeline execution in Cloud Manager.
Author & Publish Links – Provides direct access to the author & publish environments where the code is about to be deployed for convenience.
