Direct Branch Commit
Prior to this release, when users commit changes to git, Copado Essentials always generates a feature branch and commits changes to the generated feature branch. This approach promotes best practices and ensures that changes follow a proper pull request review process prior to merging.
While the above approach remains a best practice, we have also received feedback from our users who would like the ability to commit directly to a target git branch. The direct branch commits feature is now available in this release.
Please note that the Direct Branch Commit feature is currently disabled by default. If you would like this feature to be enabled for your team, please reach out to Copado Essentials support.
We are glad to announce that the org sharing feature is now enabled by default for all new teams. Previously, this feature was disabled by default and was only enabled upon user requests.
Bug Fix - GitLab Authentication Error
A recent change at GitLab API has caused authentication requests from third-party apps including Copado Essentials to have failed. The GitLab authentication issue has been addressed in this release.
