Apwide Golive: Features
Manage your Releases
The Apwide Timeline is used for planning all kind of activities taking place on your Environments.
Activities are organized into colored Calendars shared among users. Those Calendars can also be mapped with Jira issues (JQL filters) in order to visualize them on the Timeline.
With Drag & Drop, you can build Product Roadmaps or Release Plans in record time!
Manage your Environments
Tired of managing your Environments and Deployments using spreadsheets, Sharepoint lists or some other tools missing integration features?
With Apwide, your Environments' information is centralized, easy to share and to keep updated, either automatically or manually. You can define an unlimited number of Attributes (ex : URL, credentials, owner, provider, etc.)
Get Environment data in Jira issues
Apwide brings a new type of Custom Field that can be used in your Jira screens to replace the standard Environment field. All Environment information can be accessed directly from the issue page.
The Environment Panel completes the Custom Fields in order to bring even more contextualized information to the user.
Automation & DevOps
Since the very beginning, Apwide has been designed with the objective to easily integrate with other tools like Jenkins, Bamboo, Chief, Docker, Monitoring tools, etc.
Apwide brings additional Jira WebHooks that can trigger actions in other systems, and all operations that can be done using the Apwide UI in Jira can also be executed from the Rest API. To help you integrate Apwide, we have also added a Swagger Rest API browser.
Watch your Environments
Are you still relying on Email Distribution Lists for your communication around Change and Release? In order to avoid forgetting or spamming people, Apwide gives to all Jira users the possibility to subscribe/unsubscribe to Environments events and configuration changes.
For that, Apwide is using the standard Jira email notifications system.
With Apwide you can build Environments Booking Requests, so that your users can log a request each time they need to book an Environment.
Do you need an approval from your Environment Manager or Release Manager? With Jira it is easy to customize your workflows!
Reporting: Dashboards & Gadgets
Apwide comes with strong reporting capabilities to generate statistics and build dashboards for Jira and Confluence. Those reports can even be published for people without Jira or Confluence accounts.
On the Apwide Timeline, you can detect and measure mismatches between the planning and the reality.
Planned and logged events can be exported in Excel, CSV and JSON formats. Environments’ Timelines are synchronized with your users’ favorite calendar application (Outlook, Google Calendar, Notes, Confluence Team Calendar, etc.) in order to keep everybody aligned.
Security & Permissions
Permissions in Apwide are very granular and can be mapped with Jira groups. Teams get access to only the Environments they need.
Segregation of duties can be enforced to restrict operations available to the developers or operations.
