Use the FF dashboard

Feature Flags comes with an out-of-the-box dashboard that provides various aggregated views of data about your flags at an organization level. This includes flags across all projects and environments in an organization.

With Harness dashboards, you can:

  • Edit, customize, and create your own custom dashboards.
  • Download data in multiple formats to use in other tools.
  • Schedule delivery and set up alerts on dashboard data.

For more information, go to Harness dashboards.

This topic provides some highlights and useful information about the Feature Flags dashboard.

  • Select different areas of the charts to view information in tabular form, and download it to use in other tools.
  • Schedule delivery of the dashboard data to email addresses.
  • Set up alerts to be notified when specific data changes.
  • Clone a dashboard to customize it for different needs and audiences.

Narrow down your data set

Chances are you'll have many flags across projects, environments, and targets, so it's important to filter the timeframe and other factors to zero in on the data set you want.

Use the filters at the top of the dashboard to narrow down some or all of these values:

Filters at top of dashboard: Project, Environment, Feature Flag, Target, Timeframe

View flags by environment

These two charts are helpful to understand the number of flags or targets in each environment.

View flags by type and status

These two charts show you a breakdown of your flags by type, and whether flags are on or off in each environment.

View flags created by users

This chart is helpful to see who in your organization is creating flags, and how many. One way to use this is to help adoption of feature flag usage by having the people who create a lot of flags help others to use them.

View flags and targets created over time

You should see an increase in flags and targets created over time. The targets created gives an idea of how many users are potentially affected by your flags. As your organization's use of flags increases, the number of targets should increase. These charts help you visualize this.

Two charts: the top one shows a bar chart showing flags created over months, the second one shows targets created over months.
