Viewing products with Product hub

On this page
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.
Before you can use products, your administrator needs to create products for you.

The Product hub is a single place for all product development projects across the organization, that links teams, tools, services and events so you can manage the on-time delivery of products.

As you integrate services like GitHub and Jenkins, Product hub provides a consolidated view of repositories, builds, and pull requests associated with each product. The more services that are integrated, the more complete a picture of the software delivery you can create.

Some product screens, such as Repositories and Overview, provide status labels or icons color coded according to the status severity:

  • Red indicates an issue that needs immediate attention to deal with something potentially blocking work.

  • Yellow should be investigated soon and could potentially block work.

  • Green notifies you that an action needs to be taken, but nothing is blocked.

Status labels are applied when a policy’s criteria matches. For more information on policies, refer to Managing policies. Only CloudBees SDM administrators can create, modify, apply, and delete policies.

A grayed-out button or error message indicates that you do can not modify or create an item, like a product or policy. Contact your CloudBees SDM administrator.

Viewing products

Once a product is created, it is listed on the Product hub. Selecting the product card displays Product overview, which provides a summary of the latest activities reported by linked services like GitHub and Jenkins.

The summary cards displayed on this screen depend upon the data linked with your product. For example, if a product has linked repositories, Jenkins jobs, and pull requests associated with it, then the Product overview displays summary cards.

The Product overview becomes more powerful as more services are integrated. The summary card for linked data sources varies.

  • Pull request by repository summary cards provide a list of the top repositories with active pull requests. Status labels shows any outstanding issues that match defined policies.

  • Jobs summary cards show the name of any current jobs, the job number, and a status label showing whether the job has failed, succeeded, or is currently running.
