JetBrains has released a public beta of TeamCity Pipelines, a cloud-based Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) service for small and medium-sized engineering teams.

The product joins other TeamCity products in the JetBrains product range, including TeamCity Cloud, an SaaS version, and the main TeamCity CI/CD product. TeamCity Pipelines can be used by teams to automate the process of integrating code changes, testing them, and delivering the application to the users.

Like TeamCity Cloud, Pipelines is a SaaS CI/CD tool that combines a user interface with self-tuning optimization features aimed at small developer teams. The reasoning behind the new version, according to JetBrains, is that while customers like TeamCity because it can handle pipelines of any complexity, some smaller teams have said that the learning curve is too steep.

Marco Behler, Product Manager of TeamCity Pipelines, said:

"With TeamCity Enterprise, our primary focus is on Enterprise customers with complex CI/CD pipelines, as opposed to small and mid-sized software development teams."

He said the new streamlined solution is designed to address the specific needs of those smaller engineering teams, as it is straightforward to use and configure. 

The public beta provides the features for building and running generic pipelines, simplifying the CI/CD process so anyone can easily manage them. TeamCity Pipelines has a simplified version of the Pipeline editor to make it easier to configure pipelines. It also has "intelligent configuration assistance" that guides developers to which features would be beneficial, and offers recommendations of what to do. For instance, TeamCity Pipelines can automatically detect specific build tools and suggest smart test parallelization options based on that, resulting in an up to 75% faster runtime.

The new version comes with built-in pipeline optimizations that rely on JetBrains TeamCity CI/CD engine. The software supports YAML files for storing, modifying, and loading pipelines.

TeamCity Pipelines lets developers choose what type of agent to run their job on from Linux, Windows, or macOS. It also lets developers add extra tools, installing them additionally on agents.  TeamCity Pipelines also features a built-in Docker image search and Dockerfile support.

JetBrains plans to introduce a built-in integration with JetBrains IDEs in the near future to take the CI/CD workflows closer to developers, allowing them to create, execute, and debug their CI/CD pipelines without switching the context of their IDE.

Developers can join the Public Beta of TeamCity Pipelines.
