Big week: non-technical workflow in Slack, CLI 0.2.0, better Task statuses, and more. I'm excited, this was one of our biggest weeks for releases.
With today's releases, we enable non-technical workflows. Non-engineers can start leveraging Runops! Making a SQL query or a python script available for Customer Success or Product Managers to run from Slack now takes 10 seconds: just add the script to Git!
🚀 We released Templates in Slack
/runops templates anywhere in Slack to get started. You can select the template from a dropdown and we will create a dynamic modal with one input field for each parameter in your Template.
💬 Run Tasks and receive Logs in Slack
You can start Tasks executions from Slack. When a Task is fully approved we send you a button to trigger the Task run. After the Task finishes executing, you will get the logs in a file from the Runops bot.
👾 CLI 0.2.0 is even easier to run tasks!
With the release of the version 0.2.0 of the CLI, the type and message flags are optional when creating Tasks. Now you only need to provide the Connection and the script. Quickly run scripts on Connections without reviews, we get out of the way:
runops tasks create -t test-db -s 'select 1'
To make the experience more consistent, we moved the -t flag from the type to the target, as type isn't going to be used much now. You can still use it to override the type from the Connection using the -y option.
🚦 Improved Task status feedback
Now you get a notification in Slack about the status of your Tasks. Both failure and success outcomes are updated in the Task so you can check them in the CLI, admin UI, or Slack. ▶️ Autorun Tasks Tasks that require no review will automatically run when created. You can get the results back from a script with 2 commands now instead of 3.
