Manage & Promote Schedule Changes

Modern workload automation environments incorporate multiple instances of Tidal Automation, such as Dev, QA and Prod. Repository simplifies the process of managing and promoting schedule and calendar updates. You can easily replicate jobs across instances while ensuring integrity and security of schedules. Designed for use by administrators and developers, Repository is built on the same principles of source code control systems so that you can apply application updates and schedule changes simultaneously.

For Administrators

01

Centralized Change Management

Create and update scheduling elements and then replicate those changes across Tidal instances – from Dev, to QA, Test and Prod – in support of the development lifecycle. You can even easily revert to a prior version of a schedule in the event of misconfiguration.

02

Single Source of Truth

The comprehensive history maintained in Repository serves as the central record of who made what changes and when. This logging is a valuable resource for satisfying audit and compliance requirements.

03

Role-based Access Control

Protect the integrity of your schedules with the same fine-grained user access controls found in the Tidal Automation platform. Limit user access to the relevant Tidal instances when they are working with Repository. You can also control who has the ability to promote schedule changes and ensure validation policies are satisfied before promoting to Production.

04

Delegation to DevOps

When developers have the ability to edit and test their own schedule changes, wait times and bottlenecks for new application updates can be reduced. Administrators can create dedicated workspaces where users or workgroups can access and manipulate their own schedules based on their access privileges.

05

Schedule Export/Import

With Repository, you can easily export a schedule into XML and import into other systems or applications. For example, keep copies of your schedule with copies of your source code.

For Developers

01

Integration With Application Development

When Tidal instances mirror the DevOps lifecycle, developers can synchronize their application updates and schedule changes in Repository for more efficient continuous delivery. Repository also offers a command line and a REST API mechanism, making it easy to integrate into existing development processes.

02

Self-service

Developers can run what-if scenarios in their dedicated Repository workspace with data that mirrors the Tidal Production environment, reducing risk to the integrity of Production schedules.

CENTRALIZE CHANGE MANAGEMENT

How It Works

Repository moves and shares data across your Tidal Automation instances so you can easily promote changes to schedules and objects from Dev to QA to Prod.
