🔁 Highlight the code per resource configuring

When working with Brainboard, users can navigate between the visual representation of their infrastructure (the "resource") and the code that defines it (the "configuration") in a seamless way. 

Before

When a user selects a node in the visual representation of their infrastructure, they may not know where in the code for that specific node is located. 

Now

When a user clicks on a resource in the visual interface, Brainboard solves this problem by automatically highlighting the corresponding section of code when a node is selected, making it easy for the user to find and understand the configuration for that node. This feature allows for more efficient and intuitive management of infrastructure.

🗂 Import Terraform .tfvars* files

* tfvars files are Terraform configuration files that store variables for a Terraform configuration. They typically have the file extension .tfvars and are used to set values for variables that are used in Terraform configuration files. These files allow you to store sensitive information like credentials and other sensitive data, which you can use in your Terraform configuration, but without having to hard-code them in your .tf files.
This bug fix likely addresses an issue where users were unable to set values for variables when they were importing resources into Brainboard. An import allows a user to take an existing resource that was not created by Terraform and bring it under Brainboard management. However, if there is a bug that prevents users from setting variable values during an import, it would make it difficult for them to properly manage these resources.

The bug fix likely addressed this issue by allowing users to provide variable values during an import, allowing them to properly manage the imported resources. This would enable the users to import resources, and also set values for the variables that they want to use to manage these resources.

💣 Import from Microsoft Azure (public)

This summer, while many were enjoying their vacations, the development team at Brainboard was hard at work. They were focused on enhancing every aspect of the platform, and one of the most highly-anticipated features was the ability to import from Azure, now available to the public.

Introducing Import Azure

To celebrate this new feature, we are excited to offer you 50 free credits to import 50 Azure cloud resources and transform your Azure infrastructure into Terraform code and a live diagram. If you require additional credits, please don't hesitate to let us know. We are here to help you every step of the way.

👥 Multiple git credentials

At Brainboard, we've worked hard to take your experience with the Cloud to the next level, especially while managing Git credentials in teams.

We've enabled you to:
  • As an individual contributor, you can add personal git tokens for any supported git provider - Azure DevOps, Gitlab, Bitbucket - and specify the scope of the creds and have visibility on where they are used.
  • As the owner of the organization, you can add Github app integration and users perform git actions based on their authorization on Github.
What do you need to do:
  • The Git credentials of your organizations are assigned to the owner of the organization. So you need to add your personal token in order to do pull requests. 
  • If you use GitHub, there is nothing to do. Your pull requests work as before. 
  • Pull requests: Choose the git provider to use from the supported ones - Azure DevOps, Gitlab, Bitbucket, GitHub, and add the description, project, folder, and base branch within the service.
  • Modules: You can choose which git credentials you want to use to import your private modules and use them.
  • Generate your diagram from the terraform code: Choose the git credentials you want to use and import your existing terraform code.
Both categories, git apps and personal tokens, are available on the 'Account' configurations, here:
This new set-up capability enables the seamless performance of tasks without switching between accounts and re-authenticating accesses, and so work independently and well.

🔥 Module redesigned.

📌 Terraform modules as building blocks 🏛

🔥 Cloud architects, network architect & DevOps people build cloud infrastructures in a way that allow others to reuse their work with the minimum interaction possible → and if they use Terraform, they do it through modules.

✅ In Brainboard.co (YC W22), we allow you now to scale this workflow:
- Import any module by just providing its source path

- You build your internal module's catalog 💪 you build your self-serve modules

- Combine modules to build cloud infrastructures that are aligned with your workflows 🔥

- Customize the icon of every module you import to make understandable diagrams 😍

📥 Terraform Reverse is open for early access!

Terraform Reverse is a feature that allows users to automatically generate Terraform diagrams and code from their existing resources on AWS and Azure, which is now available for early access. This means that users can now convert their existing resources on these cloud providers into actionable diagrams and Terraform code, which can be used to manage and maintain their infrastructure as code.

The feature is designed to save users time and money by allowing them to quickly and easily migrate their existing resources to Terraform. It takes less than 30 minutes to migrate 2500 resources instead of 6 months, which represents a significant time savings. Additionally, the feature can save users money by reducing the cost per resource migrated, which can add up to thousands of dollars at scale.

The feature also allows users to achieve a much faster time to infrastructure as code (IaC) and automation, with up to 100x faster time. This allows users to quickly and easily automate the management of their infrastructure, which can lead to increased efficiency and reduced human error.

Overall, Terraform Reverse is designed to help users save time and money by making it easy to migrate their existing resources to Brainboard and automate the management of their infrastructure. With this feature, users can take advantage of the benefits of IaC, such as increased efficiency and reduced human error, while minimizing the time and effort required to do so.

⚡️Data sources

As per Terraform definition: Data sources allow Terraform to use information defined outside of Terraform, defined by another separate Terraform configuration, or modified by functions. 

They are heavily used in architecture to reference and/or get information about a resource already deployed. Data resources could be 
  • A common resource shared between multiple architecture
  • For security reason (read-only access)
  • Managed by another team

⚠️ Note that each provider may offer data sources alongside its set of resource types.
