Today we're excited to announce that Heroku CLI Autocomplete for Bash and Zsh is generally available. Heroku CLI Autocomplete makes your workflow faster and more seamless by helping you complete command and flag names when you press the tab key. Autocomplete completes all Heroku CLI commands and will automatically support new commands as they are added. You can also complete values for some flags and args—including apps, pipelines and config vars—so you won't need to run multiple commands to find and cross-reference them.

Heroku Webhooks let you create powerful real-time integrations and drive custom operations workflows whenever your Heroku app changes. Today, we're excited to announce a new user experience that makes managing and creating webhooks easier than ever. Now everyone on your team can create a webhook, update it and see deliverability, using a straightforward interface in the Heroku Dashboard. Until now, app webhooks functionality was only available through the Heroku CLI.

Today we're excited to announce that we've open sourced oclif, a framework for building command line interfaces.

We built oclif to serve as the common foundation for both the Heroku and Salesforce CLIs and to abstract away the common struggles. The framework is now available to any developer for building CLIs large or small. oclif makes building CLIs more accessible by providing you with the patterns and tools to scaffold a working command line interface. It provides a structure for simple to advanced CLIs, including documentation, testing, and plugins for adding new commands.

We are excited to announce that the new Heroku Partner Portal for Add-ons is now generally available.

The new portal offers an improved partner experience for building, managing, and updating Heroku add-ons. Our goal is to create a workflow that will give you more freedom and enable you to bring your add-ons to market more easily.

The new portal has been organized into a simple, elegant interface that is similar to the rest of Heroku's products. In each section, we've made more functionality available via the portal interface, where in the past emails or support tickets might have been necessary. This release brings a more visual approach as well as greater focus to creating and...


We're happy to announce that Heroku app webhooks is now generally available for all Heroku customers.

Integrating with Heroku webhooks provides easy support for driving custom workflows and 3rd party tools.

Heroku has always made it easy for you to extend your apps with add-ons. Starting today, partners can access the Platform API to build a more secure and cohesive developer experience between add-ons and Heroku.

Advancing the Add-on User Experience

Several add-ons are already using the new Platform API for Partners. Adept Scale, a long-time add-on in our marketplace that provides automated scaling of Heroku dynos, has updated its integration to offer a stronger security stance, with properly scoped access to each app it is added to. Existing customer integrations have been updated as of Friday May 12th. All new installs of Adept Scale will use the more secure, scoped Platform API.

Today we are announcing the newest version of the Heroku CLI. We know how much time you spend in the CLI as developers and how much pride you take in being able to get things done quickly. Our new CLI has big improvements in performance as well as enhanced readability for humans and machines.

Tuned for Performance

CLI response time is made up of two parts: the API response time and the performance of the CLI itself, and the latter is where we’ve made big improvements. While a typical Unix user should experience responses that are around half a second faster, the biggest gains are for Windows users, as the new CLI no longer has a Ruby wrapper.

When we measured the time it takes for the...


Two years ago we released the Heroku Platform API (v3), providing a supported way to automate and instrument Heroku and making it even easier for you to build new products. Today we are deprecating the legacy, unofficial version of the API that preceded it (v2), as its usage is limited and we are focusing development on the newer, officially-supported API.

We will sunset v2 of the API on April 15, 2017. For security reasons, we will be sunsetting support of auth in query string sooner, which we will announce in the Changelog.

If you are using the older version of the API, we recommend transitioning to v3 as soon as possible. Please reach out to us through support if you have any...


Today we are introducing Add-on Controls for Heroku Enterprise customers. This new feature enables team leads to whitelist specific add-ons for approved use within their organization, choosing from our marketplace of over 150 add-on services. The ability to standardize the add-on technologies being used across all the apps and developers in their organization is something many customers have asked for, especially those with fast-growing teams.

Standardizing Add-ons Using the Whitelist

To get started with Add-on Controls, the first step is for the team lead, or anyone who has admin permissions, to build the Add-ons Whitelist. There is a new section on the organization’s settings page,...
