Version 3.4.5 - 3.4.7
# Version 3.4.5 - 3.4.7
We have been hard at work adding in a bunch of new tools. Over th epast month we have added AWS Glue Workflows, an AWS CLI runner, and billing information.
# AWS Glue Workflows
Workflows are a great way to string together your AWS Glue Jobs, Crawlers, and Triggers. As we began to build out a tool for a client, this became helpful, because in the AWS console, being able to see the actual status of a workflow requires you to go to a run detail, and click into it. In the console, if the run completed with errors, it just shows completed, and doesn't actually tell you it failed.
In our tool, if there were errors, you will see a red dot next to the item, and can then drill in to find out more information.
# AWS CLI
The AWS CLI is a powerful way to view your AWS system from the command line. We have integrated a runner that uses the AWS CLI in a docker container. It enables you to run your commands and view the results all from within Commandeer. Another nice feature is that we allow you to select which profile from your .aws/credentials file to use with it.
We have also integrated it into S3 and DynamoDB, so that you can see the CLI command to list your buckets or tables.
# AWS Billing
Seeing at a glance how much your bill is from AWS is important. In fact, as we rolled this out, we were able to cut our dev and prod bills in half by diving deeper into it. We suggest doing so fairly often as a good sanity check for what you are building.
We continue to add features that help us do our work more efficiently using AWS, and hope it helps you as well!
