About the plugin
The CircleCI plugin integrates CircleCI data directly into Backstage, offering a unified view for real-time build monitoring and logs. By centralizing build information, the plugin eliminates context-switching, improves productivity, and fosters teamwork, allowing developers to manage builds without leaving Backstage.
Real-time build monitoring
Stay on top of your CircleCI build processes without ever leaving Backstage. This real-time integration allows developers to see the status of their builds, including failures and successes, thus enabling quicker diagnosis and resolution of issues.
Unified developer experience
Bring the power of CircleCI into Backstage to create a one-stop-shop for all your development needs. From code to deployment, keep your workflows streamlined and integrated, reducing the cognitive load for your development team.
By centralizing build information in Backstage, teams can more easily share insights, metrics, and statuses. This level of visibility encourages collaboration, as developers can quickly pinpoint bottlenecks, understand workflow dependencies, and coordinate more effectively.
Real-time build status
The plugin shows the current and historical build statuses from CircleCI directly within the Backstage interface. This real-time monitoring enables quick diagnosis and resolution of build-related issues, all without having to leave the Backstage environment.
Step-by-step job overview
View every step of a CircleCI job directly in the Backstage interface, providing granular insights into each phase of your build process. This feature helps you identify where a job might be failing or encountering issues, facilitating quicker troubleshooting and resolution.
Detailed build logs
Navigate to a specific build to access its detailed logs right within the Backstage interface. This feature allows you to dive deep into build performance, errors, and other critical information without needing to switch platforms, making debugging more efficient and straightforward.
