Release Command Center Drill Down

The Release Command Center dashboard provides a “birds-eye” view of a product or release across all of its pipeline phases. These phases include initial planning with tools (such as JIRA or Rally) to groom the backlog, target stories, and tasks.

Drilling Down into Phases

Drill-down lets you take a “closer look” at the data in the Release Command Center dashboard. You can drill down into the Planning, Dev, Build, and Deploy pipeline phases. Drill-down for these phases is implemented using either bundled plugins or the ElectricFlow Deploy UI itself. Drill-down details for phases with drill-down capability are provided below.

Planning Phase

CellDescription
Planning CompletePercentage of release stories that have story points assigned. This metric includes a trend indicator arrow.
StoriesTotal count of release stories.
Stories EstimatedTotal count of release stories with story points.

Drill-down in the Planning phase collects data from the EC-JIRA plugin. Clicking any cell in this phase opens a customized JIRA page. For example:

Dev Phase

CellDescription
Development CompletePercentage of release stories that have exited development.
Stories ResolvedPercentage of release stories that are development complete.
Unit Test Success RatePercentage of successful unit tests out of the total unit tests run through CI builds for the release in the last 10 days.

Drill-down in the Dev phase collects data from the EC-JIRA plugin. Clicking any cell in this phase opens a customized JIRA page. For example:

Build Phase

CellDescription
Build Success RatePercentage of successful builds out of the total builds for the release in the last 10 days. This metric includes a trend indicator arrow.
Successful BuildsNumber of successful builds out of the total builds for the release in the past 10 days.
Time to BuildAverage time taken by builds associated with the current release to complete in the past 10 days.

Drill-down in the Build phase collects data from the EC-Jenkins plugin. Clicking any cell in this phase opens a customized Jenkins jobs page in another browser tab to show all the builds. For example:

Test Phase

CellDescription
Test Success RatePercentage of successful tests out of the total tests that were run for the release in the last 10 days. This metric includes a trend indicator arrow.
Automated TestsPercentage of automated tests out of total tests that ran for the release.
Time to TestAverage test duration in the last 10 days.

Deploy Phase

CellDescription
Success RatePercentage of successful deployments in the past 10 days. This metric includes a trend indicator arrow.
Successful DeploymentsNumber of successful deployments out of the total completed deployments in the past 10 days.
Average Time to DeployAverage deployment time for successful deployments in the past 10 days.

Drill-down in the Deploy phase opens the Application Deployments page. You can access this page by clicking any cell in the Deploy phase for a specific release (this filters by the selected application and the selected cell) or by clicking Applications > Application Deployments from the Home menu (this shows all deployments for all applications by default).

Following is an example of the Application Deployments page when opened from the Release Command Center:

This is a page that is filtered by successful deployments for the selected application.

Following is an example of the Application Deployments page when opened from the Home menu:

You can filter the list of deployments according to status by using the following buttons:

Following are descriptions of the filters:

1All deployments
2Running deployments (gray highlighting)
3Successful deployments (green highlighting)
4Deployments that stopped because of one or more errors (red highlighting)
5Deployments that finished with one or more warnings (yellow highlighting)
6Aborted deployments (gray highlighting)

For example, you can view only the successful deployments by clicking the (Successful) button:

To view the details of a deployment, click the deployment, which opens the Applications / View Run page. For more information, see Deploying and Troubleshooting Applications.

Operate Phase

The Operate phase shows incident metrics associated with the deployed release (post-production). This phase collects data periodically from the EC-ServiceNow plugin. The plugin procedure provides a general field mapping parameter (as do other DevOps Insight enabled plugins), which lets you map any field from the ServiceNow incident table to the incident report object type in the DevOps Insight server.

CellDescription
Total IncidentsTotal number of incidents opened against the release.
Resolved IncidentsNumber of resolved incidents out of total incidents for the release.
Average Time to ResolveAverage time to resolve an incident for the release.
