We always enjoy receiving your feedback, so please let us know how you're getting along with your projects.
Bulk User Operations
This is a new feature that's perfect for managing large teams, especially in agency or consulting environments where there are usually many transient users needing access to code. Bulk User Operations allow Cloud 66 account owners and team managers to download the Access Profile of any team member and reassign it to other users. Admins can also make manual changes to the files and then apply these to another user.
Read our blog post to find out more about Bulk User Operations.
Multiple Account Support with cx
If you're an owner of more than one account, you're now able to switch between multiple accounts and give these different descriptions with the simple
-accounts command line.
Take a look at our help page for more information.
Cloud 66 Account Protection
We're pleased to introduce a new feature to boost the security of user access, by implementing Cloud 66 Account Protection.
We've built-in added protection for all users to prevent your account from being compromised. Meaning, if we notice any unusual behavior (i.e. someone logs into your account with a foreign IP address, different device, repeated failed attempts, etc..) we'll notify you by email.
For more information check out our blog post or read the help page.
Private SSH key in Docker build: Habitus
It's not easy to use private SSH keys during the Docker build, but it is a necessary step to secure your application. You can now make the process of adding SSH keys easier by using Habitus (an open source Docker Build Flow Tool).
Habitus comes with an internal web server that runs for the duration of the build process. This web server exposes your defined and selected secrets (like your private SSH keys), to the container being built. This way there's no need to move the SSH key out of its secure home.
Learn more by reading our blog post.
The new version of Habitus v0.4.2 is now available.
We're now supporting version 1.10.3 of Docker.
