Get started with the JFrog Platform and learn about new features and functionalities here.

Pipelines System.yaml

This release introduces a new system configuration file, allowing system configurations to be handled externally to the application, before/after the installation process. Learn More >

Fine grained security

JFrog Pipelines now works with the unified permission model to allow you to define fine grained permissions on  Pipeline sources. Admins can also control which integrations and node pools are available for each pipeline source. Depending on the user's permission for pipeline sources, they can view appropriate integrations and node pools.

Multibranch Pipeline

To enable implementing Gitflow based workflows, JFrog Pipelines now supports multi-branch pipelines. Defining a multi-branch pipeline source enables JFrog Pipelines to monitor all the branches of pipeline source Git repository and trigger the respective pipeline in that branch.

Dynamic Nodes

Admins can provide AWS credentials to bring up nodes dynamically on AWS for use in a node pool and automatically tear them down after step execution is completed. 

New installation types

JFrog Pipelines now supports Kubernetes, RPM  and Debian installation types for the core services.
