Using value streams

CloudBees platform for 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

A value stream is the sequence of activities that enable work to flow continuously through the process of defining, creating, and delivering software to the end user. Value streams help you to:

  • Track changes.

  • Detect stalled and delayed changes.

  • Identify failures and blockages.

  • Find components that are ready for testing.

  • View contributing components.

From the Product hub, you can link a product to any existing value streams in DevOptics. By linking value streams to products, you can get full visibility across your software delivery process for your products.

After a product is linked to value streams, you can view a list of linked value streams for that product. The list also includes the following basic metrics for each value stream:

  • Number of failing gates

  • Deployment frequency (DF)

  • Mean lead time (MLT)

  • Mean time to recovery (MTTR)

  • Change failure rate (CFR)

Linking a product to value streams

You can link a product to multiple value streams. You must have value streams set up in DevOptics before you can link products to them.

  1. On the Product hub tab, select the product that you want to link to value streams.

  2. On the left pane, select Value streams.

  3. Select Link value streams. If no value streams are currently linked to the selected product, select Link your first value stream.

  4. Select the checkboxes for the value streams that you want to link to the selected product.

  5. Select Save changes.

Viewing the linked value streams for a product

You can view a list of value streams that are linked to a specific product. The list also shows basic metrics for each value stream.

  1. On the Product hub tab, select the product for which you want to view linked value streams.

  2. On the left pane, select Value streams.

  3. (Optional) Select the name of a value stream in the list to see the details and metrics for a value stream.

Removing value streams from a product

When you remove value streams from a product, the link between the value streams and the product is removed. The value streams are not deleted.

  1. On the Product hub tab, select a product.

  2. On the left pane, select Value streams.

  3. Select the checkboxes next to the value streams that you want to remove.

  4. Select Unlink selected value stream.

Moving value streams to a different product

Select one or multiple value streams and move them to a different product.

  1. On the Product hub tab, select a product.

  2. On the left pane, select Value streams.

  3. Select the checkboxes next to the value streams that you want to move.

  4. Select Move to a product.

  5. Select the product to which you want to move the selected value streams.
