Private orbs, Insights trends, and UI improvements

Product updates

Private orbs now on CircleCI

This month we released private orbs for customers on our Scale plan. Since launching orbs two years ago, developers have been able to simplify their entire development process and shorten time to production. But we know our users also want to privately share configuration across multiple projects, exclusively within their organization. Private orbs enable teams to do exactly that while increasing efficiency. Check out our docs to learn more.

UI improvements in February

Invite team members to join your projects
It’s now quicker and easier to start collaborating with your team on CircleCI. Use the new “Invite Team” button on your project-specific Pipelines page to send your team members a link to contribute to your projects.

Review and resolve failed tests on the jobs page
Users who have configs set up to collect test metadata can view a summary of how many tests failed, how many tests ran, and access links to each failed test. Copy any failed test from the jobs page and rerun in it a personal IDE.

Easily access parallel run info
You can now instantly view the level of parallelism and how many parallel runs you have available per job from the tooltip on the jobs page.
