We're in the process of expanding our login options to connect with the services we know customers depend on. For the first piece of this, we now have GitHub login available in the app.

This release also brings in a new data integration: we're scanning GitHub repositories for Snyk and Datadog config files, in order to give you visibility into which projects are using those guardrails and who might need some support to get it integrated.

Plus one more bit of cleanup:

  • Add subtype to Platform Component table view and clean up unused columns for Person and Team

This gives you a more streamlined catalog view to find the details you care about fast.

It's time! We're releasing our GitLab integration. This will allow you to import catalog YAML files from GitLab project repositories. OpenContext will also create a CodeComponent record for the repo and attach any codeowners.

This is just a first release, so we're very interested in your feedback. Sign up for the beta and get in touch with us if you'd like to try it out.


  • Import projects, users, and groups from GitLab
  • Add reference field with copy button functionality to Entity About Cards
  • Add config option to import archived GitHub repositories. Set integrations.github.includeArchived to true to use this.


  • Merge links from multiple AuxComponent sources for AuxInfoCard

We have some new features for this release:


The CodeComponentSidecar YAML is being replaced by a dotfile format. This allows us to better merge user-created data with automated CodeComponent imports from repositories. You can read more about how to use dotfiles in the docs.

  • Add dotfile processor for adding data to imported code components
  • Deprecate CodeComponentSidecar now that dotfiles can be used to merge data for imported CodeComponents

GitHub Actions integration

We're releasing a new GitHub Action soon that will allow you to generate SBOMs and track them in OpenContext.

  • Add SBOM type for AuxComponents

Also some bugfixes and other improvements:

GitHub CodeComponent import

  • Add error logging to paginated GitHub GraphQL queries
  • Add rate limit logging for GitHub APIs
  • Add a 1 sec wait to queryWithPaging to avoid GitHub's secondary rate limit. This change makes 1 request per second to avoid concurrency issues.


  • Add runbook type to AuxComponent

Release Notes

This release has two sets of internal changes that will prepare us for some exciting future updates!


  • Datacenters can now be linked together with dependsOn relations
  • Platform Components can now belong to multiple Platforms. They also now have a type and subtype.


We upgraded the main application to use React 18 and Material UI v5. In the process, a lot of the internal components were cleaned up and some front-end bugs that made things look a little glitchy got resolved. We have big plans for our user experience, and this upgrade means we're ready to go forward. Stay tuned for more!
