This feature is not ready for production use.

The Value Streams Dashboard is a customizable dashboard to enable decision-makers to identify trends, patterns, and opportunities for digital transformation improvements. This page is a work in progress, and we're updating the information as we add more features. For more information, see the Value Stream Management category direction page.

Initial use case

Our initial use case is focused on providing the ability to compare software delivery metrics. This comparison can help decision-makers understand whether projects and groups are improving.

The beta version of the Value Streams Dashboard includes the following metrics:

The Value Streams Dashboard allows you to:

  • Aggregate data records from different APIs.
  • Track software performance (DORA) and flow of value (VSA) across the organization.

DevOps metrics comparison

The DevOps metrics comparison displays DORA4 and flow metrics for a group or project in the month-to-date, last month, the month before, and the past 180 days.

This visualization helps you get a high-level custom view over multiple DevOps metrics and understand whether they're improving month over month. You can compare the performance between groups, projects, and teams at a glance. This visualization helps you identify the teams and projects that are the largest value contributors, overperforming, or underperforming.

DevOps metrics comparison

You can also drill down the metrics for further analysis. When you hover over a metric, a tooltip displays an explanation of the metric and a link to the related documentation page.

Customize the dashboard widgets

You can customize the Value Streams Dashboard and configure what subgroups and projects to include in the page.

A view can display maximum four subgroups or projects.

To display multiple subgroups and projects, specify their path as a URL parameter.

For example, the parameter query=gitlab-org/gitlab-foss,gitlab-org/gitlab,gitlab-org/gitlab-design,gitlab-org/gitlab-docs displays three separate widgets, one each for the:

  • gitlab-org group
  • gitlab-ui project
  • gitlab-org/plan-stage subgroup
