Compass Communique: October 2022

Hello Compass Community,

October with Compass is all treats and no tricks 🎃 - in just 4 minutes we’ll demo how to up-level your DevOps health and prevent incidents with customized scorecards, and how to unlock deeper insights when incidents do occur with a suite of improved features and experiences. Plus we’ve got a new AWS integration and an opportunity to inspire others by sharing your Compass experience.


Demo: customize your scorecards and improve DevOps health

Scorecards are the foundation of your DevOps health practices in Compass, allowing you to codify and track criteria related to the health of your component and cultivate good DevOps practices at scale. With custom fields, scorecards now let you track anything you deem important to the health of your software architecture. See how we customize scorecards to enforce data privacy policies in just 4 minutes.

How will you customize scorecards for your DevOps health practices?


Bringing on-call and incident information into Compass

When something goes wrong, whether it's an outage or a broken feature, team members need to respond immediately and restore service. This process is called incident management, and it’s an ongoing, complex challenge for companies big and small.

Compass provides deeper visibility into how incidents impact all software components in your distributed architecture while giving you a DevOps health platform to prevent future incidents. Our catalog helps you find important information about your software components when you need it, and metrics give you the data you need to understand past trends and prevent future incidents from occurring. The Activity Feed helps you visualize and correlate events for a component and its dependencies all in one place. With CheckOps, your whole team can reflect on and track action items post-incident, and you can use scorecards to help track key indicators indicative of future incidents.

With the new Opsgenie and PagerDuty apps for Compass, you can see your Incident events side-by-side other events on the Activity Feed, quickly determine who is on-call for a given component directly in Compass, and get powerful metrics with zero configuration. These apps are rolling out today. To get started, install and configure the integration you want from the “Apps” menu in Compass, then simply follow the instructions on the on-call card for any component.
