Harness, the Modern Software Delivery Platform company, has announced the availability of Harness Continuous Error Tracking (CET), a new module designed to provide developer-first observability for modern applications, enabling developers to proactively identify and solve errors across the entire software delivery lifecycle (SDLC).
Harness CET offers a range of key benefits for developers, including reducing escaped defects, eliminating manual troubleshooting, and faster resolution of customer issues, allowing teams to find and fix issues in minutes instead of weeks, improving both developer and end-user satisfaction.
Harness CET is a developer-first observability solution, with end-to-end visibility that enables developers to observe errors, debug code and create quality gates in the Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) stages. By correlating these errors with those observed in production, Harness CET enables developers to prioritize remediation efforts and ensure faster time-to-resolution. This innovative approach empowers developers to deliver higher quality applications and significantly reduces the time and effort required for troubleshooting and debugging, making Harness CET an invaluable tool for any modern application development team.
Key features of Harness Continuous Error Tracking include:
- Runtime Code Analysis: Enables developers to reproduce and resolve errors with complete context. By providing complete visibility into every exception’s source code, variables, and environment state, issues are routed directly to the right developer for faster resolution. With the ability to capture state across the entire call stack, Harness CET provides developers with full context of errors, including code variables and objects up to 10 levels deep into the heap—more than any other provider.
- Code Quality Gates: Ensures that bad code is stopped from being promoted with quality gates in the CI/CD pipeline. Harness CET then creates guardrails to ensure only high-quality code advances. This prevents unreliable releases from being promoted to staging and production environments.
- Release Stability: Allows developers to compare current or past releases to understand trends in new, critical, and resurfaced errors. This insight helps teams maintain release quality over time.
Harness CET integrates with popular monitoring solutions, such as AppDynamics, Dynatrace, DataDog, NewRelic, and Splunk; natively integrates into Harness build and deployment pipelines; integrates with other third-party CI/CD solutions; or can be used standalone.
