Community Session: FireHydrant, Expedia, Loblaw, and more

FireHydrant, Expedia Group, and Loblaw demo features for the Backstage Community

The reliability experts at FireHydrant recently introduced their official plugin for Backstage. Now FireHydrant users can get a rundown on active incidents and topline metrics right from a service’s overview page, with more detailed info just a click away.

Watch FireHydrant’s live demo from this week’s Community Session to see the plugin in action and learn how the team has made it easy to integrate it with the services in your Backstage Software Catalog.

Watch the demos

After a few updates from the maintainers, check out these live demos:

  • GitLab plugin: The SRE team at Loblaw presents their open source plugin for GitLab. If you’re using GitLab for source code management, now you can see GitLab pipelines, merge requests, languages, contributors, and much more on your service’s overview page.
  • FireHydrant plugin: With this official plugin, now FireHydrant users can get a rundown on active incidents and topline metrics right from a service’s overview page. More detailed info is just a click away.
  • Global search modal: The developer experience team at Expedia Group presents their internal search modal — similar to Spotlight in macOS — which earned many a 🔥 emoji and one “Woohoo” from the audience. Start a search from anywhere and filter your results with ease.

Plus, Q&A and more updates with the maintainers, covering RBAC, Tech Insights, refreshing entities in the catalog, and the new API Reference docs. It was a jam-packed session — if you missed it, you can watch the whole thing above.

Also, starting next month, there will be separate sessions for adopters and contributors. Go to both!
