Creating CI/CD pipelines is often considered a frustrating and time-consuming process. Each change has to be saved, committed and the pipeline rerun from the beginning.
DevOps engineers are missing a key component that has been available for software developers for years: debugging breakpoints, so Codefresh is introducing the world’s first live CI/CD debugging tool to take the suck out of DevOps.
The Codefresh pipeline debugger works similar to an integrated development environment (IDE) debugger. Developers can place breakpoints on one or more pipeline steps and once the pipeline hits one of them, it will pause and a debugging window will open. Users can then test commands, explore the state of the pipeline, and identify required changes.
“The initial feedback from our users piloting live debugging has been very positive. They love how much faster and easier the CI/CD pipeline creation process is when engineers are able to test, troubleshoot, and fix their pipelines with this new tool,” said Raziel Tabib, Founder and CEO of Codefresh.
