DevOps Cockpit offers customers one centralized place to bring your apps into Insights Hub. It helps you to integrate, test, use productively and provision your application to other external users.

DevOps Cockpit is designed to simplify the application lifecycle. We have improved and enhanced the application performance. It is the combination of former Developer Cockpit, Operator Cockpit and distributed functions into one continuous and centralized place to simplify the developer experience.

You can access the DevOps Cockpit from the Launchpad in your development environment. You need at least one of the following roles to access the DevOps Cockpit:

  • Developer
  • Developer Admin
  • Operator Admin

These roles can be assigned to your user in Settings application by your “System Administrator” and Settings will be available on the Launchpad. For more information about Settings application, see Settings documentation.
