Amazon CodeCatalyst (Preview) has added an administrative dashboard for Dev Environments. This dashboard enables users with the Space administrator role to centrally view and manage Dev Environments across projects. CodeCatalyst is a unified software development service that makes it faster to build and deliver software on AWS. Dev Environments, a feature of CodeCatalyst, are preconfigured, scalable cloud development environments accessible from popular IDEs.

A space represents your company, or department, which contains projects, team members, and the associated cloud resources you create in CodeCatalyst. Using the new dashboard, you can view, stop, or delete Dev Environments belonging to your space. You can also modify configuration settings such as inactivity timeout and compute configurations of Dev Environments belonging to your team members. The owners of the Dev Environments receive email notifications whenever a space administrator performs update or delete operations on these configurations. The new dashboard also supports filtering of Dev Environments using properties such as projects, users, alias, IDE, resource, and status. To use the new UI, navigate to your space, choose Settings, and then choose Dev Environments.

With preconfigured Dev Environments, you can onboard developers faster by avoiding lengthy setup process and work with supported IDEs such as AWS Cloud9, Visual Studio Code, and JetBrains IDEs including IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, PyCharm Professional and GoLand.
