Know what's deployed daily via Slack

Sleuth now provides individuals a daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly summary of what was deployed, delivered right to you via Slack! 

This is an especially powerful feature for engineering managers, product manager, support member or anyone trying to keep track, at a high level, of what's deploying. Sleuth allows you to request a report at the project or deployment level so you can get only the information that matters to you.

This adds to Sleuth's Slack mission control which allows you to control your deploys right from the comfort of Slack.

New Relic and custom Impact tracking

What did I do yesterday? Try Sleuth Standup

Tired of trying to remember what you did yesterday? Me too. With some 20% time, I added a simple Sleuth Slack command that help you build your standup report, prepopulating it with your deployments and other development activity. Run this in any Slack channel:

/sleuth standup

And you'll see a dialog that when submitted, reports your standup to the channel:

To see more than the last 24 hours, try appending a time period after the command, for example, this command will return the last 3 days:

/sleuth standup 3d

To see it in action, check out this "commercial": 

Deploy details view redesigned

Our redesign started with our updated project Command Center and was quickly followed with our updated deployment dashboard. Today we've rolled out the last phase of our updates with a redesigned deploy details view.

The deploy details view allows developers to instantly troubleshoot bad deploys with:

  • Who made the change and the authors involved
  • What changed and how it came to be with links to the code diff and related issues
  • When the change was deployed and when it was superseded 
  • A clear view into the health and impact of the deploy

A clearer view for your deployments

Following on the heels of our project Command Center update today we’re excited to be rolling out a completely redesigned deployment dashboard. We've brought all the improvements from our project command center and more to your deployment view.

The deployment dashboard provides developers:

  • A preview of what you're about to deploy
  • Help keeping your environments in sync
  • A powerful search to quickly find previous deploys

Head on over and check out your new deployment dashboard!

Take command of your deploys

Today we’re excited to be rolling out a completely redesigned Sleuth experience. Our updated Command Center provides one place to visit so developers can quickly and safely deploy new changes.

Command Center has been designed for developers so that at a glance you can:

  • Deploy new changes quickly and safely
  • Preview what you're about to deploy
  • Easily keep your environments in sync

If you haven't recently visited your dashboard, it's time to take another look!

Clearer and more relevant Slack notifications

It's clear you all love Slack notifications for your deploys. However, we knew we could do better at making it immediately obvious what changed, when it happened and who was responsible.

Every notification now starts with a quickly identifiable emoji so you can understand what kind of event occurred and a deep link to Sleuth to find out more. Next we put the "what" of the change front and center. Finally, messages call out the author and any important attributes of the notification.

Understand the why with updated Deployment locking

improvement Sleuth deployment locking just got a whole lot better! Deployment locking allows teams to throw on the brakes when a deploy has gone. With our latest updates you can now see who locked your deployment, for how long and why.

Now when you lock in Sleuth we will prompt you for the reason and we capture all the information associated with the event. Now you can understand your teams locking trends by inspecting your lock history at the Project or Deployment level.

For those looking to dig a bit deeper into understanding their locking trends you can access all of the locking data via our graphql API.

Sleuth Slack slash command makes it easy to know what's shipped

The Sleuth Slack integration just leveled up! We're excited to introduce the Sleuth Slack slash command.

Have you ever been in your standup and wondered if your PR has shipped? Just ask Sleuth from the comfort of your Slack client and never wonder again.

By default /sleuth MY SEARCH TEXT will search your projects for matching deploys. You can also use the /sleuth create My manual change #with_tags command to create manual changes.

Just update to the latest version of our Slack app and connect your Sleuth account to your Slack to start using the Sleuth slash command today!
