Release 6.8.5

The Clarive team is pleased to announce the launch of its product release 6.8.5. This latest release comes with a range of new features, most notable of these being:

  • Kanban SLAs
  • Snapshotting: import snapshot in new systems
  • Project configuration templates
  • Tracked assets
  • New event for send email failure
  • User suspension

You can download the binaries for the new release at You will need a support user in order to be able to download the software. Please feel free to contact us by email at [email protected] if you need a user account.


Clarive allows for the putting in place of SLAs associated with Topic Categories. These help in identifying thresholds exceeded by each Topic in its various lifecycle Statuses.

Kanban provides identification at a glance within each of its rows, including not only the Topic’s situation as shown in its current Status, but also its history.


Henceforth new instances may be created by importing existing ones via a snapshot file taken from a different Clarive instance. This aids in streamlining the configuration process for environments that we may wish to replicate.

The entire system or a selection of components that are of interest may be imported.


Setting variables can get tedious, it often being the case that different Projects can contain the same variables, together with identical values. By grouping project variables in an Environment Template we can streamline Project configuration. We can also use this to set the Environment in which these are available.

This new feature allows the User to create a template containing the variables and values according to Environment, which can be imported within Projects in order to complete their configuration.


Files sent to the servers can be checked for issues by activating the configuration tracking option in the Rule service.

In addition, files currently being tracked may be viewed within the Job:

This comes with the option of auditing files, which throws up an error should an issue arise with the file that is to be overwritten.


Until now it has been impossible to tell for sure whether an email generated by a notification has been sent properly. Clarive has come up with a solution to this problem with the development of a new event, allowing tracking of email send issues.

The event is triggered when the maximum number of failed attempts to re-send the email is reached.


This new feature allows suspension of active users in the tool, rather than their deletion, which makes it possible to keep hold of details of users no longer using the tool, as well as enabling their reactivation.

User deactivation results in the aforementioned user no longer having access to the tool and also no longer being able to interact with Clarive via his or her API key.

There are many more exciting features coming out this year, so please watch this space!

Open DevOps 2017

Open DevOps 2017: change, collaboration, improvement and much more

The second edition of Open DevOps has just successfully concluded. This year the event took place in Milan and Rome respectively on May 16th and 18th . At the meeting, participated international speakers and representatives from different companies to debate the concept of DevOps and in particular, which is the best strategy to adopt to integrate this highly debated, but slightly used method.

From the international speeches it emerged, that the train of change already started in many Companies. To reach it out, it is now necessary to introduce tools, strategies and a people mindset change.

Speaker’s face-to-face: practical cases

International speakers brought on the stage examples of how they changed their client’s IT through the implementation of DevOps solutions.

In the afternoon, during 20 min, one-to-one meetings, were available to answer questions about the specific company establishments of participants.

  • Carlos Sanchez Gonzales, Technical Engineer at CloudBees
  • Ilkka Turunen, Solution Architect at Sonatype
  • Eddy Pauwels, SVP Sales & Marketing at Clarive Software
  • Guillermo Villarrubia, Service & Presales Manager at Kiuwan
  • Yaniv Yehuda, Co-Founder and CTO at DBmaestro.


If you need to change your organization, people must change their mindset first”: let’s start from Digesting DevOps

At the end of the demo of Dev and Ops tools, introduced during the morning by the speakers, Rainfellows presented the Digesting DevOps. In a very funny and playful way, the two Lean and Agile experts, showed how to change people’s mindset towards intense cooperation between different organizational units.

open devops event

In conclusion, Open DevOps has been an event of shared experiences, tools, strategies and cultural changes, which all together set the step-by-step way to the DevOps.

Release 6.8 is out!

The Clarive team is very excited to announce the release of Clarive 6.8. Our new release brings a whole set of features and functionalities that take Lean Application Delivery to a new level.

Release Goals

The focus of the 6.8 release series is to improve the quality and intelligence of the delivery pipeline. We’re very committed to solving some of what we consider to be very important issues that impact on the quality and robustness of the DevOps toolchain, namely:

  • Error prevention, mitigation and guidance
  • Pipeline quality and completeness
  • Realtime DevOps debugging
  • Profiling and bottleneck detection

Root-cause Analysis

Eradicating errors is not just a tongue twister.

Your delivery pipeline is probably comprised of many different tools, technologies and resources. Even the most robust DevOps chains tend to encounter errors along the way, caused by compiler errors, application server issues or resource failures, like simple disk space errors downstream at endpoints in the network.

Clarive 6.8’s new root-cause analysis feature is a powerful tool to help deal with errors that can bring your pipeline to a standstill. Root-cause analysis helps identify why problems/errors happen when they happen:

  • From admin initiated remediation
  • From collaboration input
  • From Clarive’s own curated knowledge base

For example, in the screenshot below, Clarive interpreted an error, giving guidance to the user that “rebase was needed” (a dependency problem was detected in the Git repository prior to deploying the application):

Root-cause Analysis - new release

New root-cause configuration items can be configured to parse errors and give guidance on how to respond to errors. Root causes can be also recorded on-the-fly into the knowledge base for future, automatic matching.

DevOps Quality

Even the best DevOps automation has bugs. DevOps is about making it easy to deliver changes continuously with quality and speed. But how robust is your DevOps automation? What if you introduce changes to it that break build and deployment applications. DevOps has become part of the final product. You’ve just bankrupted the business!

Clarive 6.8 brings a pipeline static analysis checker that verifies how strong and resilient your automation is before you make changes. It will also make recommendations that help create more mature and safer logic:

  • Does it have a rollback procedure?
  • Did you make it a template or hard-coded variables
  • Is your pipeline modular or monolithic?
  • And many more, besides

DevOps Quality - new release

The static analysis of Clarive rules can be executed from the command-line every time a rule is saved. You can even prevent the rule from being saved if it has errors, helping making the whole system even more secure.

Pipeline Stage Profiling

Create pipeline stages and profile them by stage and operation type:

  • networking for testing and deploying
  • remote command profiling
  • DSL and local script profiling
  • Repository clone or checkout times
  • etc.

Pipeline Stage Profiling - new release

The stage visualizations can now be seen in the job monitor live. Clarive 6.8 stores historical profiling data so that you can profile the evolution, and prevent and detect bottlenecks ahead of time.

Step-by-Step Debugging

The new step-by-step debugger is one of the best new features coming out in the 6.8 series.

In this version you can watch how the deployment runs step-by-step, with live logs and standard error and output from endpoints, external integrated and orchestrated applications, databases, etc. All the scripts and rule logic executed externally, will be controlled from a single entry point – the Clarive DevOps platform.

deployment runs step-by-step - new release

Some of the key features of step-by-step debugging coming out in the 6.8 release series:

  • Breakpoints
  • Watch variables and stash
  • Change values before executing (in debug mode)
  • Repeat and rollback steps
  • Pause and connect to server from the web interface (!)
  • Dry-run and mock steps

Additional Enhancements

There many more, over one hundred, enhancements in Clarive 6.8. Here are some of them:

  • Job log streaming – logs are now streamed from the remote servers through the agents to the browser.
  • User groups are now part of security scopes
  • Project-specific pipelines
  • New scope events


There are many new plugins that will be covered in another series of posts, so stay tuned. But here are some new important additions and complete makeovers:

  • SAP
  • Salesforce
  • Siebel
  • Changeman ZMF
  • Endevor

Coming Up Soon

Clarive feature releases come out every month. The next release will bring important improvements in many areas, including:

  • New features for customizing dashboards and dashlet layout
  • Lean Delivery Boards, a new redesign of our current Kanban Boards
  • Our Docker “inception” runner, which lets you run the pipeline inside curated Docker imagest
  • More profiling options and reports
  • User-defined rules
  • Predictive analysis of errors
  • Pipeline test cases
  • Asset tracking features

And finally, a revamp of our UI that includes an improved and more fluid user experience.

the future is now with Clarive - future release

The new UI makes navigation more intuitive and quicker (with a navigation bar search).

There are many more exciting features coming out this year, so please watch this space!
