This provides additional security to the application.
- OpenShift Pipeline allows users to define, control and track changes to the application delivery pipeline and the application source code. This helps developers in utilizing Git workflows to automate the deployments of their CI/CD pipelines. This helps them in turning their codes into features at a fast and secure pace.
- Enhanced developer experience within OpenShift Console, also including the ability for spring bot developers to code and test before sharing the code on a broader basis. Red Hat Openshift 4.8 enables advanced scaling options for developer consoles to further improve serverless development.
