👥 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.

🔐 SSO

SSO Single Sign-On is an authentication scheme that allows a user to log in with a single ID to any of several related, yet independent, software systems. True single sign-on allows the user to log in once and access Brainboard services without re-entering authentication factors.

🔥 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 😍

🌓 Smoother transition between IaC and Diagram

Design is central to building scalable infrastructures. Now, design and code views are combined for a seamless experience.

Now, you have 4 ways to work on your architecture: 
  1. Design
  2. Design / Code vertical 
  3. Design / Code horizontal 
  4. Code

📥 Terraform Reverse is open for early access!

Terraform Reverse was our #1 feature request of all time, and we’re excited to officially announce that it is open for early access!

It means that you’re now able to convert your AWS and Azure resources into actionable Diagram and Terraform code, both auto-generated ✌️ 
 
For you, it means: 
  • It takes less than 30 minutes to migrate 2500 resources instead of 6 months. 
  • Saving you tens of $ per resource migrated, which represents thousands at scale.
  • Allowing you up to 100x faster time to IaC / automation.

Your time is a valuable asset. Don't do in months what you can do in hours.

We’ve been working with Vanta to help achieve our #SOC2 certification.
We use Vanta’s automation platform to continuously monitor different security aspects across the organization, be it internal security controls, employee training, secure development, etc. against the recommended standards.

⚡️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.

Import from Terraform files 🔥🚀

Turn your Terraform code into an actionable Diagram in seconds! 🎉

This feature is brand-new to the Brainboard app, enabling everyone to upload the Terraform .tf code and auto-generate a diagram. It eases migration into Brainboard.

Please note, this feature is new and will definitely be improved 🙂

Please don't hesitate to share your feedback, and we'll make sure to take it into consideration for further updates 😉

Terraform Modules

We've seen some of you needing to use Modules in your diagrams. With this feature, you are able to reuse any modules you find online / you create yourselves as a brick of reused codes directly from the Design brick of Brainboard. We made it easy to import, drag & drop and configure your modules directly on your dashboard. Let us know what you think 😇
