GoCD – CI/CD server

GoCD is a Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery system.

GoCD helps you automate and streamline the build-test-release cycle for worry-free, continuous delivery of your product.

This is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Model complex workflows – easily configure dependencies for fast feedback and on-demand deployment. Its fan-in/fan-out dependency management always does the “right thing,” avoiding spurious builds.
  • Promote trusted artifacts – pass once-built binaries between stages so you know exactly what’s being deployed and that the binary has been tested.
  • Value Stream Map – visibility it provides over your end-to-end workflow. GoCD’s Value Stream Map lets you track a change from commit to deploy at a glance. And when things go wrong, it’s easy to see both the upstream cause and the downstream effects. A value stream map can be drawn for every instance of a pipeline. It provides you with the ability to:
    • See what caused the current pipeline to be triggered.
    • See what downstream pipelines were triggered by the current pipeline.
    • See the status of the current pipeline and all its upstream and downstream dependencies.
    • See changes in dependencies of the pipeline across different runs of it.
  • Manual triggers – allow you to deploy any known good version of your application to wherever you like. This increases reliability of pushing to production, and empowers QA teams with self-service environments. And, if necessary, it’s securable and auditable.
  • Verification – executes tests written in most languages or frameworks:
    • GoCD’s agent grid provides parallel and cross-platform execution.
    • GoCD’s test reporting will tell you in exactly which changeset and on which platform a test started breaking, which comes in extremely handy when fixing a complex broken build.
