Automation, CI/CD and Devops enablement of Roundtable TSMS
Roundtable Automation is a stand-alone product to use with Roundtable TSMS, or an add-on module for Roundtable Dashboard. RTB Automation gives customers access to a set of secure REST based APIs that can be used to automate processes in Roundtable TSMS and to build new custom workflows.
Roundtable Automation can be used from any tools that can make calls to REST APIs such as Jenkins and cURL as well as from OpenEdge code.
Roundtable Automation can be used with any tools that can make calls to REST APIs such as Jenkins and cURL. This makes it easy to start implementing CI/CD and automated DevOps for your Roundtable TSMS installation.
Out of the box, there are a number of pre-defined processes to cover existing Roundtable TSMS processes. These include compiles, creating releases, imports and deployments.
Also included is an advanced OpenEdge ABL SDK that wrappers all of the Roundtable TSMS APIs and Proxies (and more) that can be used to build custom processes. These can then be executed with REST calls from a generic custom automation API.
Roundtable Automation is available as Docker container stack (Rancher or Docker Compose) with documentation for installation setup and use, as well as sample implementations from command line scripts and Jenkins pipelines.
Roundtable Automation can also be used as a built-in component of the Roundtable Dashboard to provide integrated access to the automation features together with advanced task and workspace based workflows.
Dashboard features such as issue management, graphs and statistics, issue workflow and more detailed CI/CD processes are not included in the Roundtable Automation product. Customers interested in these features will need to purchase separate RTB Dashboard licenses for their users.
The Roundtable Automation REST APIs can be integrated into the workflow functionality and also available for external integration with other toolsets.
The automation APIs make it possible to perform core RTB functions such as:
RTB Automation can be used within the Roundtable Dashboard workflow, command line tools (like CURl) and CI/CD tools like Jenkins. We deliver a set of sample Jenkins projects for customers to get started with using Jenkins and RTB Automation together.
Roundtable Automation is now available from Roundtable Software.
We would love to give you a demo and explain how Roundtable Automation can make your use of Roundtable TSMS easier, faster and much more streamlined.
