Key Features

Concourse for PCF provides the following key features on top of open-source Concourse:

  • Service instance mapping of orgs and spaces to Concourse teams: PCF developers provision dedicated Concourse service instances for their PCF orgs and spaces. Creating a Concourse for PCF service instance automatically generates an associated Concourse team within that org and space. Any space can have multiple service instances and teams.

  • Horizontal and vertical scalability: Developers can specify the size and number of worker VMs for their service instance through the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI). Operators define the service plans in PCF Operations Manager (Ops Manager).

  • Security: Users Authenticate through UAA (OAuth2). This integrates with Concourse teams and ensures that developers can only see and edit pipelines for the teams, orgs, and spaces to which they belong.
