Compass Communique: February

Hi Compass Community!

Forget chocolate or Champagne, Compass is showing its love with a quiver full of new and exciting enhancements for you and your teams! Let’s jump right in and see what’s changed.


You can now track metrics for each of your components inside Compass, and measure their health using Scorecards. Further to that, the Bitbucket (and soon GitHub) apps will automatically add metrics - like PR Cycle Time and Deployment Frequency - to your components.


We’ve built our API so you can easily push in metrics from your builds and deployments in a one line cURL command. You can also use the global view to easily view metrics across your components - found under Health in the top navigation. We are also expanding the number and depth of the apps in Compass to push more data about your components and make sure they’re healthy.

Best of all, metrics are extremely flexible so you can create anything you can think of! We’d love to hear what you’ve built!

Activity Timeline view

We’re excited to ship a brand new view to the Activity feed for each component - now you can view events for your component over time, and drill into what occurred. Check it out:


This is a great way to quickly spot when a faulty change caused an incident across your dependencies, and drill down into what went into each change. Speaking of incidents, we’ll be adding the ability to track incidents, alerts, feature flag changes and lifecycle events - super useful for teams of all sizes! And in keeping with the open and flexible nature of Compass, the API is completely open so you can send events from any of the tools you use.

Get started by connecting Bitbucket Pipelines deployments to your component, and watch out soon for Incidents and other event types!


When we started building Compass, we always wanted to share the best practices we’ve learnt internally on Atlassian’s journey over the last 20 years with customers. We recently released a new feature called CheckOps to help your teams track how well they’re doing each week, and track actions that can improve your DevOps practices. In the next few months we’ll be improving CheckOps to let you track and improve metrics like Unit Test Coverage, On-call Alerting rates and PR Cycle Time across your components and teams, as well as notifications and summaries to help surface this information in a timely manner.


You can access CheckOps by visiting your team in Compass to get started, or read our documentation to find out more.

Other improvements we’ve made:

  • Filters: We’ve now got unowned and low scoring filters on the component list pages, as well as a filter to access your teams on the Teams list page to make finding what you want easier.

  • Scorecards: We’ve made Scorecards more accessible for all by putting them under Health in the top navigation, and will be making scorecards more configurable and editable by all users in the near future.

  • GitHub app: We’re excited to announce we’ve launched a GitHub app that lets you quickly import components from GitHub straight into Compass. It’ll also add the repository URL, and a few labels so you can quickly track down which components use which language. For more information see our documentation.

  • LaunchDarkly app: Following a recent Innovation week in the Compass team, we’ve shipped a new LaunchDarkly app so you can see recent Feature Flag changes alongside your component.

And that’s a wrap! Want to deep dive with the team about your needs? Schedule a meeting with us.
