CA Release Automation Review

It includes plug-ins to integrate with different ITSM and Source Control tools to automate deployments with REST API.


Valuable Features:

  • Continuous Integration is easy to automate.
  • It can be integrated and used for handling releases for many different platforms and tools such as .Net, Java based Application Servers, load balancers, and many others using Standard Action Packs.
  • It's easy to build flows using Standard Action Packs without writing any scripts.
  • It includes plug-ins to integrate with different ITSM and Source Control tools to automate deployments with REST API.

Improvements to My Organization:

  • We've integrated it with our ticketing system to automatically trigger deployments and update tickets accordingly, saving a lot of manual effort.
  • Our number of successful deployments have also increased exponentially.

Room for Improvement:

  • Error message descriptions need to be more accurate and specific.
  • Error handling needs to be improved in some of the action packs. 
  • UI is a little complicated to understand for the new user and needs some improvements.
