Well-designed secrets management is a delicate balancing act between security and usability. Secrets must be easily accessible to the right users when building and deploying, but they must also at the same time be well-secured and easy to rotate. This article will cover how to thread this needle by integrating CircleCI with HashiCorp Vault and retrieving secrets using short-lived OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication tokens.

Components are reusable bits of code that, most of the time, work and function independently. If you want to be confident that components are working properly, you need to test them. Conveniently, Cypress.io has designed their testing framework to include component testing. This tutorial illustrates the differences between end-to-end (E2E) and component testing, and what to consider when using these methods. Then, you will learn how to use Cypress for component testing.

JavaScript Immediately Invoked Function Expressions (IIFEs) are functions that are executed when they are initialized. An IIFE (pronounced “iffy”) can be initialized or defined to achieve a certain purpose. In this tutorial, you will learn about use cases for IIFEs and the benefits of using them over traditional functions. You will also write tests for your functions and integrate CI/CD for these tests.

CircleCI notification orbs were built to deliver messages to the appropriate channels when a build is successful or when it fails. This helps everyone involved in a project stay up-to-date with the status of the latest build. In this tutorial, you will explore and implement notifications sent to a Slack channel and also sent via SMS. To accomplish this task, you will make use of the Slack and Twilio orbs from the CircleCI orb registry.

As many enterprises start to scale utilizing CircleCI’s cloud offering, due to the need for privileged access & controls and unique compute requirements for some jobs, we launched self-hosted runners. Self-hosted runners enable engineering teams to use their own infrastructure for running jobs. A machine runner executes each job with a one to one mapping between a job and a VM launched in the same environment as the machine runner binary.
