Today, we’re excited to announce that Shipyard has become an official technology partner of CircleCI, bringing you the Shipyard Orb. Users are now able to use Shipyard with CircleCI to run CircleCI jobs that use staging environments automatically deployed by Shipyard, authenticating into them via a bypass token.
The Shipyard CircleCI Orb retrieves the token needed to bypass your ephemeral environment’s OAuth flow. Once you have this, you can pass it to other CircleCI jobs and programmatically connect to your environment. Our most common use-case is for end-to-end tests, but any sort of interaction with the environment is fair game.
Head on over to the Orb’s docs for more details: https://github.com/shipyardbuild/circleci-orb
CircleCI’s Orb program puts Shipyard in front of more than 600,000 developers across 30,000 organizations.
As one of the most-used DevOps tools, CircleCI helps engineering teams build, test, and deploy code faster with added confidence. They run more than 40 million jobs per month for over a million developers, automating the entire software delivery process. CircleCI also has unique access to data on how engineering teams work and how their code runs, which can help boost productivity throughout an organization.
