We've added a brand new feature that allows you to standardize your AWS access and manage your AWS profiles. Common Fate will now generate ~/.aws/config profiles for you! This setting can be enabled or disabled from the settings, and when enabled it will run every time you connect to an AWS organization using Common Fate.
All your existing profiles will be preserved and you will be able to filter out pre-existing profiles from our new profile viewer page cf://profiles which can be accessed from the command palette or the menu bar.
Preview what accounts you're signed in to, and authenticate in one click!
When logging into AWS using Common Fate, a pop-up window now displays the access code.
Common Fate now includes an integrated terminal. You can open a terminal to any AWS account by choosing the Terminal option from the Search Palette. Terminal tabs are colored to match the AWS account that you're operating on.
AWS session credentials are automatically refreshed for terminal tabs.
If you have feedback, questions, or problems you can now get in touch with our team directly inside our desktop client. After installing Common Fate, visit cf://support to get in touch. When reporting a bug you can submit diagnostic information which can help our team debug AWS-setup related issues. This information can be found at cf://diagnostics.
Common Fate includes an integrated web browser powered by Chromium, which is used to open AWS Console links. If you prefer, you can now opt-out of the integrated browser and use Chrome, Arc, Firefox, or Brave. Let us know on Slack if you'd like to see support for other alternative browsers.
Introducing in-page search! Use Control+F (or Command+F on MacOS) to activate a search bar on any page.
We've implemented a series of enhancements in our navigation capabilities. Now, you can open cf://... links by simply pasting them into the URL bar. Additionally, we've expanded the functionality to allow you to open cf:// links directly from other applications.
Introducing keyboard navigation to Common Fate. The search bar now stays in place as you change between pages making it a lot easier to see which account/service you’ve selected.
We use a stack-based navigation in Common Fate. Resource pages stack on top of Service pages, which stack on top of Account pages. You can navigate backwards in the stack by pressing backspace, and forwards by pressing enter.
Natively view CloudWatch logs in a much easier to digest format.
We’ve changed the way that automatic updates work. From here onwards you’ll see an indicator like the one below when a new update is ready - this will give you a bit more control and visibility on the update process.
Today we’re really excited to announce the launch of a new product, Common Fate. Common Fate extends on our values and the wins we’ve had so far with Granted. If you’d like to give it a try, you can join the waitlist here. We will begin sending invites on Monday next week for the first batch of users so keep an eye on your inbox.
