In Compass, you can create new scorecards to measure the health of your components based on your unique requirements.
Creating your own scorecards enables you to:
define company-wide standards and policies to ensure that all teams are aiming for the same standards
define team-level standards to ensure they follow their own best practices, in addition to the company-wide standards
Before you create a new scorecard, make sure you:
Check if the default service readiness scorecard already fulfills your requirements
Understand the different methods of applying scorecards so that you can apply scorecards using a method that makes sense for your team and the criteria you want to enforce on your components
We’ll show you how to create custom scorecards in Compass.
To create a scorecard:
If the scorecard is applied to all components of a selected type, Compass implicitly applies it to all components with a matching component type that you set when you created the scorecard. Scorecards applied via component label are also automatically applied, matching components with that label. A scorecard set to be applied manually can now be applied to individual components from their detail's page.
You can delete scorecards that you no longer want to use.
Scorecard deletion is irreversible. Once you delete it, you'll not be able to recover the scorecard again.
To delete a scorecard:
You choose the method of applying the scorecard when you create a scorecard using the field How should this scorecard be applied?
Scorecards in Compass can be applied using one of the following methods:
All components of a selected type
This method allows you to apply scorecards to all components of a selected type, where Compass implicitly applies it to all components with a matching component type that you set when you created the scorecard. Compass implicitly applies a required scorecard to all the applicable components.
Use this method to apply organization-wide criteria to components and ensure that all teams are following the same operational best practices.
By default, the service readiness scorecard is a scorecard applied to all service components.
Individual components of a selected type
This method is a manual way to apply scorecards, where a component’s type matches the component type that you set in the scorecard’s settings. These scorecards are not mandatory but are the ones that your organization recommends the teams use for all applicable components.
Use this method to apply criteria defined by cross-product or platform teams, such as SRE, security, or DevOps, to components of a particular type.
By a component label
This method of applying scorecards is based on component labels, where a component’s type and component label matches the component type and label that you set when you created the scorecard. These scorecards are not mandatory across the organization, but you can use them for specific components as per your needs.
Use this method to bulk apply scorecards to components of a selected type in a more granular way, or apply using labels that match your team or organization structure, categorization, or specific groups of people.
Your Compass site comes with the following default scorecard:
Service readiness scorecard
The service readiness scorecard measures how ready your service is for use in a production environment and guides you towards further improving it. It is applicable for service components. It's applied to all service components, meaning that it is mandatory for all service components.
The scorecard has the following criteria and weight for each criterion:
|The service has a description||50%|
|The service has an owner||50%|
