Hello from Team Clever Cloud!
We are quite excited to release a major new version of our Dashboard.
It includes a lot of bug fixes as well as a few additions. We've included automatics payments, a design refresh, an activity feed, a better log management. And a nice GitHub integration too.
So today we’re launching these new features, and I'd like to detail some of them:
As you may have noticed, the GitHub button showed up recently on the Clever Cloud website and our login & signup forms.
This feature aims to simplify the login & signup process, but also to bring your GitHub repositories to Clever Cloud.
We used to base our billing on an account balance. While running, apps consume those credits. Since the begining, our users had to fill it with money manually. Now, a monthly amount can be automatically credited each month.
And to deal with scalable consumption, a threshold can be set up too. How does it work?
The billing threshold is initially set at a certain amount. Each time your account hits its threshold before the 30-day billing cycle has ended, your credit card is debited of the amount you've set up. See an example of recurring payment configuration below:
We teamed up with our most active users to create a better and clearer UI. We’re bringing to the dashboard simpler components and a more contrasted layout. You can even add an avatar for your profile or organization.
The activity feed lets you track your apps' activity. When you open the activity tab, you will see each deploy and un-deploy event, with the following data:
- the date
- the type (deploy, undeploy)
- the reason of deploy (scaling, monitoring etc)
- and the commit ID
Better Logs Management
It's now easier to deal with logs: the start time of each instance is now displayed next to its id. This allows an easier bug tracking on deploy processes. It comes with a nicer and more helpful UI.
If you want to give this a whirl, head up to the console!
