Compass can be extended to work with an organization’s entire toolchain and track whichever metrics and data you deem important. Developer Kairo Phan explains how to get started using our open APIs in this 3-part video series with open-source examples to help you get building.
1️⃣ Authentication: Setup authorization for Compass API requests
2️⃣ GraphQL Examples: Queries and Mutations
Each component in your architecture maps cleanly to a single owner, right? If only the world were so simple! Now you can capture all the nuance by assigning additional Team owners the custom field type
user. Assign specific people to fields like “Owner”, “Escalate To”, “Group Lead”, “Architect” and anything else you can dream up and keep all key parties informed.
🔍 Navigate to your Custom fields settings UI in Compass
👉 Click the Create custom field button
✏️ Define your field’s parameters and choose the applicable component types
The activity feed does the heavy lifting to keep key information about your software up to date in real-time, displaying all relevant activity for a given component and its dependencies in a single view. The Compass events API is completely extensible and by default offers
custom events. We’ve released several enhancements to help you see changes in real-time:
Activity feed on component detail overview page for greater visibility and contextual relevance
Display all commit events complete with info & URL links from Bitbucket, GitHub, and GitLab out of the box
Environment filter sorts events by dev, staging, prod, or any other desired category
Head over to your Compass homepage and see what’s happening on your activity feed.
We’re making it easier to work across your toolchain, from tracking software health to sprint planning and documentation. Compass, Jira Software, and Confluence are now cross-searchable allowing you to quickly find relevant components directly within Jira and Confluence to help you tie the health of your technical architecture to your sprint planning rituals.
💻 Head over to your desired Jira Software or Confluence workspace
👉 Click on the search bar and select Compass from the product list
🔍 Search to your heart’s content
Define it once, track it everywhere! Global metric definitions provide a central mechanism to track component performance consistently across your organization. With Compass' open API you can consistently track any component metrics to a component whether it’s Build Time, Deployment Frequency, or anything else, all your teams will be on the same page.
