User-friendly interface, good integration with LDAP, and has an easily-extendable open architecture

What is our primary use case?

We are using GoCD as our main tool for Continuous Delivery (CD) pipelines. We integrated GoCD with Continuous Delivery tools, such as Jenkins, TeamCity, etc. We actively using the following features of the GoCD: LDAP integration, server-agents architecture (run GoCD agents on-demand in a Kubernetes cluster or on AWS EC2 instances to keep the operations cost low), plug-in architectures, Infrastructure as a code (pipelines in GoCD could be described in code repository). Besides all these features, GoCD has a great UI with flexible permissions management.

Pros and Cons

  • "Permission separations mean that we can grant limited permissions for each team or team member."
  • "The documentation really should be improved by including real examples and more setup cases."
