General configurations

Tags: Flow

There are a few manual configurations you can set for your reports. All these configurations can be found under the Configurations page. Below is an overview of each setting and its functionality.

In order to modify these configurations you will need the Configurations permission. If you already have this permission, navigate to Settings then click on Configurations to get started.

Who can use this?



Pull requests to exclude

This setting allows you to exclude PRs by regular expressions. Some organizations want certain PRs excluded from metrics. People with WIP PRs are a common example. Use a regex to conform the Flow platform to your process. Learn more about excluding pull requests.

Pull request tracking

This configuration allows you to determine when some of your PR metrics calculations begin, specifically metrics that are time based, like Time to merge.

  • Created - This the default configuration. PRs will start being tracked the moment they are created.
  • First commented - This configuration will set your PR metrics to begin from the time the first comment was made.

Important: Changing this setting can cause slight delays in processing pull requests. If you use First commented for your Pull request tracking, your Time to first comment will always be zero.

Pull request comments to exclude

Using this configuration you can exclude specific pull request comments using regular expressions. Some teams have processes where certain comments should be excluded from metrics (i.e. "+1"). Learn how to exclude pull request comments.

Comment robustness

This configuration allows you to customize your comment robustness for the Review and collaboration report. Input the number of words on each side of "Regular" to set the word count for trivial, regular, and robust comments.

Default pagination page size

This setting allows you to set the default page size. Based on your selection here, will determine how many rows of data will be displayed in reports that use pagination. Reports that use pagination include but are not limited to, Work log, Review, and collaboration and Review workflow.

Custom date ranges

This section enables your organization to take advantage of custom date ranges.

  • Enable custom date ranges - This setting enables you to show specific calendars and or sprints in your date picker in your reports. Learn more about custom date ranges.

  • Utilize updated calculation logic to support custom date ranges (recommended) - This setting changes the way any partial week is calculated in your fundamental reports. Metrics are weighted on the number of days selected in the time frame rather than entire weeks.
