Introduces deeper support for release automation with a wider range of HTTP traffic metrics and the integration of release plans into the Release Agents.
Additional request count and response time
metrics have been added. These are grouped by HTTP request type to allow policy conditions to be set for GET, POST, PUT and DELETE etc requests.
This provides improved support for the SRE concept of Service Level Objectives (SLOs), specifically the monitoring of latency-based SLOs.
The release plans have been moved into Vault and release plan based triggers have been added to the Release Agents.
In previous versions, release plans were external artifacts stored in git repos and using them required adding additional scripts to your CD pipeline.
