Sentinel 0.16 unifies the policy authoring workflow by including HCL support and expanding the standard imports.
Today, the Sentinel team is pleased to announce the release of the Sentinel Playground. We have built the Playground so that new and existing customers have access to a zero-install development environment. Now, practitioners can learn and experiment with policy as code in minutes without having to install and maintain runtime environments on their own machines.
HashiCorp Terraform provides cloud infrastructure automation with infrastructure and policies as code. Policy as code is becoming the popular approach to embedding guardrails into the provisioning workflow while not slowing down end-users who are provisioning infrastructure. Terraform uses Sentinel policy as code to embed these policies. Today we are pleased to announce the preview release of the Terraform Foundational Policies Library for Terraform Cloud.
Last November we announced the release of the tfrun import for Sentinel in Terraform Enterprise and Cloud. The release of the new tfrun import provided customers with an improved policy authoring workflow and the flexibility to author policies that could be applied to an entire organization and reduce the need for policy duplication. Since then we have had a steady flow of feedback from customers covering different use cases that prompted us to extend the list of attributes exposed by the tfrun import.
