Frequently Asked Questions

What is Conductor Free?

Conductor is a SaaS service that quickly and securely connects to all your Kubernetes clusters running Dapr and Daprized applications, delivering operational excellence, security & reliability, and insights & collaboration.

Conductor Free is a developer version for individual developers. It improves the local Dapr development experience for Dapr on Kubernetes, offering application visualization, Dapr resource discovery, best practices development guidance and troubleshooting, all at no cost.

What can I do with Conductor Free?

Conductor Free is a developer version for individual developers.  It improves the Dapr development experience on Kubernetes by providing three key benefits to local development;

  1. Application visualization and resource usage. By gathering metrics from your applications, Conductor builds a dynamic application visualization graph of the messages and calls between your services including how these are connected to the underlying infrastructure. Conductor is the only tool that provides Dapr actor information including types deployed, number of instances, and where they are running.
  2. Resource discovery. Dapr resources include components, subscriptions, resiliency policies and application configuration deployed into your cluster. Conductor enables you to discover these resources, view their YAML definitions and check for best practices, such as security settings and misconfigurations. For example Conductor can show the programmatic and declarative subscriptions for an application, or determine if an infrastructure component is incorrectly configured and raise an alert if it fails. 
  3. Development best practices and alerting. Conductor will examine your application deployments and provide best practices for security and observability settings, saving you from having to read documentation. It will also raise development alerts on errors that occur for example if application pod or Dapr sidecar fails and informs you of issues for running applications by raising alerts from error messages discover from the Dapr runtime.   
What support is available for Conductor Free users?

Conductor Free users have access to support via Diagrid community forum to ask the community questions and additional resources with thedocumentation and Diagrid YouTube channels. You can also raise feature requests and give feedback on the Conductor public repo https://github.com/diagridio/conductor-feedback
