Product News

CollabNet has announced the new release of its TeamForge platform. TeamForge enables enterprises and government agencies to accelerate application delivery, while leveraging the tools, version control systems and development methodologies that best fit their needs.


Key highlights of the 16.3 release include integrations with the cloud hosted version of JIRA Software and Chef, as well as support for pull request-based collaboration and code review workflows (to complement the already supported Gerrit code reviews). The new integrations enhance customers' TeamForge-enabled best-of-breed toolchains with the tracking capabilities of JIRA Software and the deployment automation prowess of Chef. TeamForge's end-to-end traceability chain with automatic audit trails now covers JIRA Software issues and Chef recipes — in addition to Git or Subversion® source code, Jenkins® jobs, Nexus® binary repositories, and other artifacts and activities — offering customers unprecedented visibility across the development lifecycle, streamlined compliance and better quality control.

Chef integration: The need for automation across the software delivery lifecycle has become crucial for organizations scaling CI, CD and DevOps initiatives. Chef delivers leading deployment automation capabilities, and this new integration allows TeamForge to monitor the execution of Chef recipes and record its results. TeamForge links data from Chef and other lifecycle tools to automatically create a set of associations between related artifacts and activities, providing end-to-end contextual traceability and compliance audit logs.

JIRA Software integration: With this new WebHooks-based integration, TeamForge can support both the on-premises and cloud-based versions of JIRA Software, allowing customers to leverage JIRA Software's planning and tracking capabilities regardless of its deployment type. TeamForge associates JIRA Software issues with related downstream artifacts and activities (such as TeamForge Git or SVN code commits, Jenkins CI builds, Nexus binaries – and now, Chef recipes) and produces a full traceability chain from the creation of an issue to the deployment of the corresponding code.

Git Pull-Request support: To provide customers the freedom to choose the code review and collaboration method that best fits their preference and business need, TeamForge now supports the feature branch workflow with pull requests, in addition to Gerrit's individual commit-centric methodology. TeamForge accelerates pull request-based reviews and streamlines root-cause analysis by automatically associating code commits to the ensuing pull requests.
