CloudBees Release Orchestration SaaS Insights, for CloudBees CI, CJOC, and Jenkins, enables users to understand project development performance in a given timeframe. Insights provides a range of information on project activity, including run time, total number of runs, jobs configured, system health, and usage patterns. You can display the data in either a tab or heatmap view.

Tab view

Calculations are based on the total number of runs executed during the timeframe.

You can sort the tab and heatmap views by:

  • Project name

  • Project failure rate

  • Number of projects

  • Last active project
