Monitor your CI/CD build status for your PowerShell application

LogSnag is a powerful event tracking tool that makes it easy to track events across your PowerShell application. LogSnag makes it easy to monitor your CI/CD build status.

In software development, Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are two important concepts commonly used to ensure that your PowerShell software is always in a working state. CI/CD is a software development practice where developers continuously integrate code into a shared repository and deliver the code to the end users. This way, the software is always working, and the end users can always use the latest version.

When using CI/CD for your PowerShell application, it is crucial to monitor the build status of your application to ensure that the latest version of the application is always in a working state. This way, you can always be aware of the status of your application and take immediate action if needed. For example, if the build status is failing, you can take action to fix the issue and ensure that the latest version of the application is always in a working state.

LogSnag is a powerful, real-time event tracking tool that is an excellent solution for monitoring the build status of your PowerShell application. By using LogSnag directly in your CI/CD pipeline, such as Github Actions, or by using it inside your PowerShell application, you can track the build status of your application in real time. You may also set up optional rules to notify you and your team when the build status of your application changes.

In addition, LogSnag allows for tracking your CI/CD build status over time and creating a timeline of events for each build. This way, you can always review the build history of your application and take action if needed.
