Release trains on autopilot, testing and stability integrations, and more

Scheduled cadence

Put your releases on a schedule, and let Runway take it from there. Choose your cadence frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly), and configure your kickoff, submission, and release settings. Runway will automatically set target dates for upcoming releases as they approach and, with automated kickoff, submission and release enabled, you can finally run a fully automated release train with Runway as your copilot.

To help you keep track of target dates that were automatically set by Runway according to your scheduled cadence, we include a small cadence icon in the schedule module, which you can access from any release step.

If at any point during your release cycle you need to pause upcoming scheduled automations, you can do that easily. Head to the schedule module and hit the “Pause schedule” button. Pausing your schedule means Runway will not perform any more scheduled automations until you resume. Once you resume, upcoming automations will proceed on their target dates as normal.

Regression testing integration (TestRail)

If your team uses TestRail for QA and regression testing, you can now view test run status and results within Runway. After connecting TestRail, Runway will automatically pull in test runs associated with your release by name and present details within the “Regression testing” step.

Stability monitoring integration (Bugsnag)

Another new and exciting capability – Runway can now pull in and surface Bugsnag stability metrics like session stability, user stability, and adoption percentage. Right now these are displayed on each completed release’s “Release” step, and soon you’ll be able to see all stability metrics in App Home as well. More providers are also coming soon - Sentry is next up!
