Announcing the General Availability of MedStack Control API 1.0

May 14, 2021 by Fatima Mian

We’ve been getting lots of questions about when our API will be fully released since it was announced in Preview back in February.

Today, MedStack is excited to announce that the MedStack Control API 1.0 is now released in general availability!

This release includes new endpoints and features to better help developers quickly and seamlessly deploy services to compliant environments within existing CI/CD pipelines.

API 1.0 Capabilities

MedStack Control users with owner or technical permissions now have the ability to create personal access tokens which can be used to authenticate requests made against the MedStack Control API.

The following features were added in version 1.0 of MedStack’s APIs:

  •   We’ve included several new endpoints and resources to help you manage the Services your company offers on a granular level. Services can now be created and updated with specific images and tags that meet your company’s needs and can accommodate changes to Secrets and Configs in pipelines.
  •   We’ve released a feature called RefreshImage that allows for you to troubleshoot services by forcing a restart.
  •   The new Secrets feature will allow you to bake Secrets into CI/CD pipelines in order to make them more secure in production environments.
  •   The Configuration API now allows for developers to rapidly update and change Configs in CI/CD pipelines.
