Heroku Review Apps now Generally Available
Review apps are the instant, disposable Heroku app environments that can spin up automatically with each GitHub pull request. They allow developers and their teams to automatically build and test any pull request, updated at every push, at a temporary, shareable URL. When the pull request is closed or merged, the Review app is deleted. GitHub users are notified of all this, right in the pull request web interface.
What you get
- Realistic test environments, on demand.
- Getting the team involved
- Secure deployments, Support for Heroku Private Spaces
Secure deployments, Support for Heroku Private Spaces
Teams that want to restrict deployments to certain developers or build managers, can restrict deploy permissions on production or staging apps for compliance or security reasons without restricting the ability of developers to create, use, and share Review apps.
Getting Started with Review apps
To get started with Review apps, just login to Heroku, create a Pipeline from your main dashboard, and connect your Pipeline to the GitHub repo that manages your team's project code, with deployment to an app in Staging. In the "Review Apps" column of the Pipeline, you can then enable and configure your Review apps in a couple clicks.
