July 2021 Okteto Enterprise Release
This month we have some new features and updates in Okteto Enterprise 0.9.6 that we’re excited to share!
Preview environments UI
We’ve got a new Preview Environments UI coming soon, and you’ll be able to get a first look at this feature during our Community Call this week. If you haven’t registered yet, here’s the link.
Destroy resources feature update
First of all, you can now both deploy and destroy resources from Git. As you know, the previous destroy command would only destroy what was created on your deploy in Kubernetes. Anything else was left behind. Now, you can add destroy steps to the pipeline, making it much easier to manage your applications in Okteto. This is useful to destroy resources created in your cloud provider, not in kubernetes itself, like RDS databases or s3 buckets.
Private certificates now supported
Okteto now offers public support for private certificates. By default, Okteto Enterprise would create a wildcard certificate for your cluster, but now you have the option to bring your own certificate. This was a customer feature request and we’re excited to now be able to offer it to our Enterprise customers.
.okteto folder support
When you deploy a Git repository, Okteto Cloud will analyze the source code of your Git repository looking for clues on how to deploy your application. If Okteto is not able to detect how to deploy your application, or you want to have more control over it, you can customize the Okteto Pipeline by adding a
.okteto/okteto-pipeline.yml file to the root of your repository.
Prevent traffic from specific IPs
Lastly, you can configure your firewall to prevent traffic to specific IP ranges. A common use case would be stopping your dev environment from talking to production.
Many of our new features come from requests by our community. If you have a suggestion for something you’d like to see in Okteto Enterprise, let us know in our #okteto slack channel in the Kubernetes workspace.
