Empower More Teams

Build & automate complex multi-step workflows that empower more teams and integrate with the tools you care about. Use each of these capabilities in isolation, or combine them seamlessly to create incredibly powerful custom workflows.

Ensure Consistency

Templates allow you to save and share standardized workflows across your entire organization and ensure every team has a consistent release process.

API Support

Like everything at LaunchDarkly, we built Feature Workflows API first, so you can build your own integrations on top of the feature workflows capabilities.

Unlock Feature Management Across All Teams

Feature Workflows adds significant value to your current software development process by automating changes and making them safe & approval-based.

Schedule Feature Rollouts Ahead of Time

Define complex changes to flags and segments to be applied at a future date and time.

LaunchDarkly

“Set & Forget” Releases

With Scheduling, you no longer need to set reminders or wake up early to turn a flag ON. Scheduling your flag to turn on at a specified date/time allows you to plan your release and let LaunchDarkly do the rest.

Progressive Rollouts

Schedule your flag to automatically roll out to 20% of your user base tomorrow, 35% the day after, 50% the day after that, and increase that percentage until it reaches 100%. Define the release cadence that best fits your team’s needs and LaunchDarkly will take care of automating it.

Limited Time Access or Trials

Enable your customers to temporarily test out new features without worrying about managing the cleanup down the road. Use scheduling to automatically remove user targets from a flag or segment after a specified amount of time for things like a 30-day trial.

Flag Hygiene

Schedule your flag’s targeting rules to clean up once your flag has been rolled out to 100% of your users, to practice better flag hygiene, and more easily understand the flag's configuration.

LaunchDarkly

Feature Workflows will save my team time, help us to avoid mistakes, and enable us to stage automatic rollouts of new functionality to our customers.

Make Changes with Confidence

Making changes to production code can be scary if you don't have the right change management processes and tools in place. Use LaunchDarkly to help enforce your approval and compliance policies before making changes to feature flags in critical environments.

LaunchDarkly

Request a Peer Review

Increase confidence in your changes by getting peer feedback on proposed flag changes before taking action. These simple guardrails will ensure every change has a second pair of developer eyes.

Require Approvals for Production

Enforce strict approval practices in critical environments before any changes are applied. Compliance-based approvals can be enabled for an entire environment, requiring every change to go through a configured change management process.

Approvals via ServiceNow & Jira

Comply with your organization’s change management practices no matter what tool they live in. Approvals for certain actions can be requested & granted directly from the LaunchDarkly application or request for approvals from users or groups within 3rd party tracking tools like ServiceNow & Jira.

Workflows Powered by Triggers from Your Tools

Connect with the tools you rely on for observability and data analysis and dynamically trigger flag updates based on the metrics that matter.

LaunchDarkly

Automated Killswitch

Connect your observability tools to LaunchDarkly and automatically turn a flag OFF or ON if your tools detect a critical service issue. No more 2:00 am pages just to flip a feature flag.

Metric Checks

Experimentation is really valuable but requires manual intervention to see an experiment through to completion. This can make it difficult to manage multiple experiments at a time and ensure that the optimal variation of a feature is always being served to your customers. With Feature Workflows, you can ensure that for every experiment the winning variation is automatically rolled out to your customers.

Health Checks

Testing in production is a critical step to ensuring high-quality software. Health Checks help your team automate the process by measuring performance in your observability tools and requiring certain thresholds to be met before allowing a new feature to move on to the next phase of the release. This will allow your team to automatically test if a new feature is meeting your service level objectives and give you confidence that every new feature has automatically been vetted in production before being released more broadly.

LaunchDarkly

I really like how Feature Workflows bakes itself into our tooling so that teams can plan and schedule their feature releases from the same place they create and test their work.
