Organizing products with Product hub

CloudBees SDM is a preview, with early access for select preview members. Product features and documentation are frequently updated. If you find an issue or have a suggestion, please contact CloudBees Support.
Products use data from integrations with third-party services like GitHub, Jira, and Jenkins. Refer to Managing integrations for details.

Products help you conceptualize offerings into segments that represent work to be completed. The products correspond to your team’s or company’s work. For example, a single product could model a software deliverable, an open-source offering, APIs, versioned software, documentation, or graphic designs. The number of products you create in CloudBees SDM should mirror the organization of work that needs to be tracked.

A product provides a way to organize the work involved and represent the current status of that work.

The number of products you create in CloudBees SDM should mirror the organization of work that needs to be tracked. Let’s say that your team works on three offerings: Solution One, Solution Two, and Solution Three. You would create a product for each solution and then associate data sources like repositories for those defined products.

Using this page you can create a product and associate work streams with that product, including GitHub repositories, value streams, Jenkins builds, and other data sources.

Creating a product

To create a product:

  1. Select Product hub.

  2. Select Create product, or Create new product if this is the first product.

  3. Enter a name for the product, and then select Create.

The new product name appears on the Product hub.

Once the product is created, you can use the options menu (three vertical dots) to edit the product name or delete the product.

Editing a product

You can modify a product by changing its name or associated color.

To change the product name:

  1. From the Product hub, select the three vertical dots next to the product name.

  2. Select Edit name.

  3. Modify the product name, and then select Save changes.

The updated product name will appear on the Product hub.

Deleting a product

Deleting a product removes all associated services, repositories, etc. The services are still available within CloudBees SDM and can be associated with other products.

To delete a product:

  1. From the Product hub, select the three vertical dots next to the product name.

  2. Select Delete product.

  3. Check the box to acknowledge that you wish to delete the product, and then select Delete product.
