Introducing… the Porter changelog!
We’re excited to share new features and improvements to Porter with our users. We'll be announcing new product updates every 3 weeks and you'll be able to stay up-to-date with the latest changes and enhancements to our platform by referring to the Porter changelog.
From bug fixes to new functionality, this changelog will keep you informed about all the exciting developments on our platform.
We have implemented a new approach to managing AWS access that eliminates the need for sharing your AWS access and secret keys. Instead, we now offer support for the AWS Assume Role operation, ensuring a higher level of security. With this enhanced method, you can grant us permissions by simply entering your AWS account ID and clicking a button before the provision step.
After clicking the button, an IAM role is automatically created in your AWS account, granting us all the necessary permissions. This role can be easily revoked at any time, providing you with full control over access to your cloud resources. This streamlined process simplifies the provisioning process while ensuring the utmost security for your infrastructure.
We have completely redesigned our launch flow, making it much easier to deploy applications on Porter. With our latest update, we have focused on simplifying the process of getting applications up and running while retaining the flexibility and monitoring that makes Porter great.
Now, all services that use the same image (either from a Docker registry or built from a repository) are grouped into a single Porter app. All Porter app services are automatically re-deployed when the image is updated. Now it is no longer necessary to cobble together multiple GitHub Actions files to trigger a shared build and redeploy multiple workloads on Porter. The Porter app dashboard allows you to manage the configuration for all your services in one place, as well as view system metrics and logs.
