CI/CD process flow for the z/OS mainframe

Developer

Exclusive focus on development tasks, his only responsibilty in the CI/CD process is commiting code into the version control repository.

Kobee

Reacts upon changes in the version control repository by running the build and deployment processes for the changed project.

  • Analyzes the project code and generates JCL which is then transferred to the z/OS mainframe for execution.
  • Execution results are transferred back and stored by Kobee (for future deployments or rollbacks).
  • Kobee links the execution result (build) to the initial commit by tagging the code in the version control repository.
  • Kobee updates the Issue Tracker/Requirements system associated entry with execution result details.
  • Kobee notifies the developer who commited the code about the result.

z/OS mainframe

The only task for the mainframe is to execute the generated JCL (compile and promote), it is freed from handling complex CI/CD processes itself (historically ran by legacy SCM tools).

Easy to install, scale and use

Kobee for z/OS is bundled with a configuration application (Kobee Resource Configurator) which allows you to quickly set up and customize the solution according to your mainframe environment.

Select what you need, export and Kobee for z/OS will pick up your new configuration. That’s it!
