What is a scorecard?

Scorecards in Compass are a set of criteria that you can apply to a component to measure its health. Each criterion, such as adding a component owner team or adding documentation, has a score associated with it. All criteria add up to 100% completion, and the current percentage based on the completed criteria represents the score of the component.

Scorecards provide you with strong guidance to cultivate behavior that improves your organization’s DevOps practices. They offer you a framework to ensure your software components are healthy and teams are following the recommended best practices. Scorecards not only show a component’s health but also indicate the areas that need improvement.

For example, your Compass site comes with a default Readiness scorecard for service components. It measures the production readiness based on criteria such as adding a component owner team, adding documentation for the component, adding a chat channel, and more. The scorecard helps ensure that users of your service have access to relevant resources and important information. Learn more about the default readiness scorecard
