• Use your own Hashicorp Vault instance with Travis CI

    Use your own Hashicorp Vault instance

    Don’t trust Travis CI with all your secrets needed for your pipeline, at least not too much. If you prefer to manage secrets needed for CI/CD processes in a central Key Management System (KMS), e.g. to be able to rotate them quickly rather than providing secure environment variables to the CI/CD tool, you can now easily connect Travis CI with Hashicorp Vault.


  • Conditional Builds, Stages and Jobs

  • Build Imports in Travis

    Importing Shared Build Configs

    Sometimes you need a really dynamic configuration when setting up your pipeline. With imported configs, those configs can themselves include other configs, making this feature very composable (cyclic imports will be skipped). Let’s get started.


  • Integrating Postman with Travis

    Postman and Travis CI
