Launched: Redesigned Environment Switcher

LaunchDarkly projects make it easy to manage feature flags from all of your software projects in one place. And thanks to environments, you can more easily manage your feature flags throughout your entire continuous delivery pipeline—from local development, to QA, staging, and production.

As your company grows, so do the number of projects and environments. We heard feedback from customers that it can be difficult to navigate between environments of the same project, or even between environments in different projects. Another frequently-heard problem is that not everyone cares about all projects and environments in the same account.

Today we’re excited to launch our vastly-improved environment switcher. It’s now easier find any environment you’re looking for, no matter how many projects or environments you have. Select a project on the left to find all its environments on the right. Click an environment on the right to switch over to it.

We’ve also introduced favorites. Clicking the star on an environment will toggle whether that environment is a favorite or not. And, if you have any favorites, they’ll be listed by default, so you can quickly navigate to the environments you work with the most.

Launched: Projects

LaunchDarkly Projects Feature Flags Feature Toggles Feature Flag Management

Overview

We’re happy to announce the launch of Projects for all LaunchDarkly customers. Projects allow you to manage multiple software projects under one LaunchDarkly account.  For example, you can create one project called Mobile App and another project called Web App. Each project will have its own unique set of environments and feature flags.  By default, all team members in your LaunchDarkly account will have access to every project within that account.  Please see our documentation for more information.

Benefits

With projects, teams get comprehensive feature flag management control across multiple different software applications. You can now:

  • Manage all of your software projects under one LaunchDarkly account
  • Keep your “Mobile App” feature flags separate from your “Web App” feature flags
  • Use custom roles to assign team members to different projects
  • Create multiple development environments within each project (e.g. local, QA, staging, and production).

When you first create your LaunchDarkly account, you will start with a Default project.  You can then create additional projects for each of your software applications.

LaunchDarkly Create ProjectsCreating a new project is easy.  Name a project and you’re ready to go.

Within your projects, you can create multiple environments. Environments allow you to manage your feature flags throughout your entire development lifecycle — from local development to QA, staging, and production.  These environments are scoped to the project. Please note that all projects must have at least one environment.

LaunchDarkly Projects and EnvironmentsEasily create multiple development environments for each project.  In this example, we are adding a “Local Development” environment to our “Mobile App” project.
