CloudShell Colony sandboxes are available ‘as-a-service’ to your CI/CD pipeline. Using our pipeline plugins and API you can launch sandboxes as part of your automated tests (just as you would do for manual testing).
For more information about CloudShell Colony's place in your pipeline, see CloudShell Colony in your CI/CD Pipeline.
To launch sandboxes from your pipeline:
- Install Colony's pipeline plugin (Installing the Azure DevOps (VSTS) Plugin, Installing the Bamboo Plugin, Integrating Colony with CircleCI, Installing the Jenkins Plugin, Installing the TeamCity Plugin).
- Launch sandboxes from your pipeline using the integrated pipeline plugin and our API (Launching a Sandbox from Azure DevOps (VSTS), Launching a Sandbox from the Bamboo Plan, Integrating Colony with CircleCI, Launching a Sandbox from Jenkins Pipeline, Launching a Sandbox from TeamCity Pipeline).
