Introducing Heroku Teams

For many of us, building apps is a team sport. With any team, getting all the people, processes and tools in sync and working together can be a challenge, and this is especially true with software development.

Today we are announcing a new feature designed to help to make building and running effective software teams easier. Available for free (for up to five users), Heroku Teams lets groups of software developers manage different projects, permissions, and people in a unified console with centralized administration and billing. Teams is available today for all users, and is accessible via our newly enhanced dashboard.

Heroku Review Apps now Generally Available

Today, we are happy to announce the graduation of Heroku Review apps from an exceptionally popular beta to being generally available to all Heroku users.

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.

Instead of speculating on how the code in a pull request might run, you can actually see the code running in a live...

Heroku Pipelines Emerges from Beta

Today is a big day for Heroku Pipelines — our continuous delivery feature that provides a visual sequence of app environments in which to test, stage, and deliver code through to production. Pipelines is now released for General Availability (GA).

A simple, three-stage Heroku Pipeline.

Heroku Pipelines provides teams of all sizes a new way to visualize and manage the development of applications, features, and fixes from dev and test, to staging, to production (and supports even more stages if that's your team's thing). Each Pipeline stage contains the Heroku apps, resources, and add-ons necessary to test your applications before "promoting" it to the next stage.

The Pipelines GitHub integrations include...

SSO for Heroku now in Public Beta

We're pleased to announce the beta of SSO for Heroku. With this beta, Heroku now supports the current and most widely supported SSO standard known as SAML 2.0, and has partnered with leading identity providers (IdPs) for easy set-up. Customers can use their existing identity provider like Salesforce Identity, Okta, PingOne, Microsoft Active Directory, and PingFederate for their employees' single sign-on to Heroku Enterprise.

SSO is expected to be generally available in early February. Initially, it will be available to Heroku Enterprise customers. For enterprise customers who want to use the feature during the beta period, it is now available in the "Settings" tab of...

Introducing Heroku Flow: Pipelines, Review Apps, and GitHub Sync for Continuous Delivery

Editor's Note: Heroku Pipelines is now Generally Available. Learn more about Continuous Delivery at Heroku.

At Heroku we're building a solid platform for delivering apps in a deliberate, reliable manner. We know that reasoning about the state and progress of code changes, testing and verifying what's deployed, and tracking what works can all be difficult — especially for non-engineering team members.

So we’re proud to introduce Heroku Flow, a new and flexible way to structure, support, and visualize Continuous Delivery for Heroku apps from development to production. Heroku Flow does for Continuous Delivery (CD) what pull requests have done for code review: make CD visual, easy...
