Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Hold ? Proceed with caution

We suggest approaching GitOps with a degree of care, especially with regard to branching strategies. GitOps can be seen as a way of implementing infrastructure as code that involves continuously synchronizing and applying infrastructure code from Git into various environments. When used with a "branch per environment" infrastructure, changes are promoted from one environment to the next by merging code. While treating code as the single source of truth is clearly a sound approach, we're seeing branch per environment lead to environmental drift and eventually environment-specific configs as code merges become problematic or even stop entirely. This is very similar to what we've seen in the past with long-lived branches with GitFlow.
