Nolio Release Automation
resources.
Run Configuration Throughput and Success Rate
Displays the status of the configuration run (not of the deployment). To populate the data, specify the configuration manager type and define the parameters.
To view the status of a configuration run, specify the parameters.
For more information, see  Add a Configuration Manager.
Follow these steps:
  1. In the Run Configuration Throughput and Success Rate panel, click the cog icon.
  2. Specify the Application, Project, and Environment parameters, and click
    Save
    .
    The report with the specified content opens.

  • Bar Chart
  • Pie Chart
  • Grid
Default:
Bar chart with five deployments selected.
Top n Successful Deployments
Displays the specified top number (n) of successful deployments up to 50. You can select the following chart types:

Reports
Application Overview
Displays an overview of your applications, the associated environments, and details of the last deployments. You can select multiple applications where each column indicates an application. Click on the title of an application to display the Environment and the associated deployments.
Artifact Report by Artifact
Displays an overview of artifact details and mismatches by artifact over multiple environments. For each artifact version, you can see the server on which it was deployed, who initiated the deployment, and the associated deployment and deployment plan by the environment.
Shows an example of the data reported by artifact version in the Artifact Report by Artifact
Artifact Report by Environment
Displays an overview of artifact details and mismatches for a single environment.
Audit History Report
Displays a historical audit report on design and management changes.
The "Audit Design Changes" system setting must be active for this report. For more information, see Manage System Settings.
Configuration Management Deployment Overview
Provides an overview of your deployments with a configuration run and the configurations assigned.
For more information, see Add a Configuration Manager.
To view the status of a deployment configuration, specify the parameters.
Follow these steps:
  1. In the Configuration Management Deployment Overview panel, click the cog icon
  2. Specify the Application, Project, Environment, and Date Range, then click
    Save
The overview table appears with the specified content, which includes:
  • A Yes/No Boolean value for baseline drift
  • The deployment configuration run status
  • Failed nodes
Click in a specific deployment row for more configuration run details.
Deployment Comparison Report
The Deployment Comparison report allows you to compare similar deployments side-by-side. For example, you can compare the same deployment that was run at different times or across two environments. While both deployments must define the same application, filtration across the two deployments includes a date stamp and the environment, such as QA and development.
This report displays all artifacts, parameter values, and tokens for each selected environment. Discrepancies are indicated in orange.
The configuration section inside the comparison report compares configuration values between deployments, and the following:
  • RA Environment, the Chef environment, the Chef server, and Org Units.
  • Actual Run List Matching Baseline - For the deployment, this Boolean true/false value indicates whether the actual run list, or baseline, matches the original baseline.
  • Actual Run List - A triangle icon indicates differences between the two deployments. Mouseover the Icon with to view the differences, for example, version differences or changed recipes.
  • Nodes List - Shows all agents that are associated with the server type.
  • Run Baseline Result - Indicates the baseline result for the deployments
    Values:
    successful, failed
Deployment Overview Report
Displays an overview of current and historical deployments. The report does not show all deployments by default and you are required to set the Start and End Time filters.
Environment Overview
Displays an overview of historical deployments and servers by application. Expand the listed environments to show the last deployment, the applications, and servers.
License Report
Displays an overview of available resources, installed action packs, and installed dashboard content for usage audit.
Process Report
Displays an overview of current and historical process runs. You can select the following processes:
  • Offline Processes
    - Displays the process runs of the last seven days
  • Online Processes
    - Displays all online process runs
Use the arrow icon to open the column menu. The funnel icon indicates that the default filter conditions are set for the column.
