Test Environments Configuration

Improve configuration tracking to enhance validation efforts

environment configuration

Enterprise releases are a complex dance of moving parts, and each project has a unique set of test environment configurations for each phase of the release. Decentralized tracking and disjointed change processes increase the likelihood of misconfigurations. Test teams run the risk of executing tests on incorrect configurations, increasing the risk of poor quality software.

Plutora Environments improves configuration tracking to enhance validation efforts.

  • Centralize configuration change requests.
  • Reliably track configurations and change history.
  • Enter configuration change requests directly or upload from your ITSM tool.
  • Leverage Jenkins to update builds and auto-populate version data into audit history.
  • Map system components, configuration details, connections, and protocols used in an environment group.

Self-service change requests for QA teams

  • Specify changes to host, asset layer, and system component.
  • Optionally pull in change requests from ServiceNow.
  • Insert comments, add user stories associated to request, or attach documents for reference.
  • Track approval status of request.

Rigorous change request processing for administrators

  • Assign configuration change policy rules and create workflows for each change type.
  • Define role-based permissions and assignments.
  • Sequence tasks and create approval processes.
  • Set up notifications for stakeholders when environments are requested or modified.
  • An audit history of workflows, change requests, and build versions is automatically saved.
