Propel your change failure rate and MTTR with CI/CD builds

As of today you can use any CI/CD build to track your change failure rate and MTTR.

Change failure and the sources that propel it differ wildly from team to team. That's why here at Sleuth we feel it's imperative to support all sources of failure your team already relies on. 

Many teams run CI/CD builds that can spot failure before it hits their customers. And others run CI/CD smoke test builds against their running Environments.

Just connect any of our supported CI/CD integrations like Jenkins, Github Actions (and more) and you'll be tracking change failure and MTTR in minutes!

Drive your change failure rate and MTTR with Incidents via FireHydrant

Many teams define change failure as when they've caused an incident. Their MTTR is how long it takes the team to recover. 

Sleuth now integrates with incident management platforms to automatically incorporate your Incidents into your change failure rate and MTTR. Our first integration is with the fine folks over at FireHydrant.

It only takes a minute to connect and you'll see your Accelerate (DORA) metrics reflect your data straight away.

If you're using PagerDuty, Statuspage or Blameless to manage incidents, never fear, we'll have you covered over the next few weeks!

Use Sleuth with any public or private Git repository

Sleuth can now track deployments and metrics for any git repository, including those behind a firewall. Instead of connecting to your GitHub or Bitbucket repositories and retrieving information, there is now a "Custom Git" repository type option that lets you use a CLI tool, sleuth-client, to push commit information into Sleuth, giving you full control over what source code information Sleuth sees.

To use it, select the option into the drop down:

After the code deployment source is created, use the  sleuth-client to register deploys:

Keep your change failure rate low with Slack based approvals

For teams with pre-production environments a great way to keep your change failure rate low is to pause and require developer approval before promoting changes to production. Sleuth has your team covered with the introduction of Slack based deployment approvals.

Sleuth approvals live where your teams work, in Slack. Authors of change are mentioned and votes are updated in the Slack message and within Sleuth. Approvals link to our powerful Slack team deploy notifications so you have all the context you need, right in Slack.

Approvals are super flexible and can be adjusted to meet your team's needs. Specify a soak time and we'll only prompt for an approval once met. Have Sleuth enforce a minimum number of approvers and whether those need to be the authors involved in the change or just anyone on your team. 

The actions Sleuth takes on a successful approval are flexible as well. We have built in actions for triggering builds with Github Actions, Bitbucket pipelines and CircleCI. However, it doesn't stop there, you can trigger any supported actions after approval.

Drive your change failure rate to zero with Slack based approvals today!

Get a 50-Foot view with your Organization dashboard

Sleuth's project dashboard is where you go to quickly and safely deploy new changes. However, sometimes you want a higher-level view across all your Organization's projects. Sleuth's new organization dashboard is here to help!  

Your organization dashboard gives you a quick overview of the default environment for each of your projects so you can:

  • Compare and contrast your project's Accelerate metrics
  • See the overall health of your organization's deploys 
  • Get a snapshot view into exactly what's been changing across your projects

Your organization dashboard can be accessed via the options in the top right Organization switcher by choosing the "Organization dashboard" link from the menu.

Drill in to discover the why behind your trends

Hot on the heals of Sleuth search we had added many quick and contextual ways to find the exact deploy you are looking for from the Sleuth UI. Click and drag on any Sleuth trend graphs to see the deploys behind the trend.

We've also linked many of the elements you see in the Sleuth UI such as; deploy tags, authors and size such that they will take you to the Sleuth search with pre-filled filters for the attribute you clicked and its associated context.

Insights and trends are now just a click away!

Sleuth search makes you a super sleuth!

No good sleuth should be without an amazing magnifying glass. Sleuth's new search is now the most powerful tool in your kit, allowing you to instantly find the cause of any bad deploys.

Search allows you to quickly drop in a commit hash, issue key, tag and much more to find when a deploy rolled out to all your environments. Combine filters to slice and dice your way to the answer you're looking for.

We've included a new list view of your deploys so you can dig into your changes, hunting for that elusive root cause, without distraction.

See what you can discover with search today!
