🚀 Product Capabilities

  • Support to ship Kubelet logs to Loki

📈 Enhancements

  • Severity in Guardrail Policies
    Users can now modify the severity of Guardrail Policies, choosing between ERROR and WARNING levels. If set to ERROR, the policy will mark the release as invalid, preventing it from proceeding. This provides users with more granular control over the impact of policies on their releases.
