Using XL Deploy reports

XL Deploy contains information about your environments, infrastructure, and deployments. Using the reporting functionality, you can gain insight into the state of your environments and applications. Reports are available to all users of XL Deploy.

Reports dashboard

When opening the Reports section for the first time, XL Deploy will show a high-level overview of your deployment activity.

Reports Dashboard

The dashboard consists of three sections that each give a different view of your deployment history:

Section Description
Current Month Information about the current month and gives insight into current deployment conditions: the percentage of successful, retried, rollback, and aborted deployments.
Last 6 Months Trend information about the last 6 complete months.
Last 30 Days Information about the past 30 days of deployments.

The following graphs appear on the dashboard:

Graph Description
Deployment status overview The percentage of successful, retried, rollback, and aborted deployments.
Number of deployments over time Number of deployments divided into successful, successful with manual intervention, failed deployments, and rollbacks over the last 6 months.
Average deployment duration over time Average deployment duration over the last 6 months.
Top 10 successful deployments Top 10 applications with most successful deployments over the last 30 days.
Top 10 retried deployments Top 10 applications with most retries, that involved manual intervention, during deployments over the last 30 days.
Top 10 longest deployments Top 10 applications with longest running deployments over the last 30 days.

Note: Rollbacks do not count towards successful deployments, even if the rollback is executed successfully.

To refresh the dashboard, press the refresh button in the top right corner.

Deployment report in HTML

The report provides a detailed log of each completed deployment. You can see the executed plan and the logged information about each step in the plan. By default, the report shows all deployments, in the date range, in a tabular format.

The report displays the following columns:

Column Description
Package The package and version that was deployed.
Environment The environment to which it was deployed.
Deployment Type The type of the deployment (initial, upgrade, undeployment, or rollback).
User The user who performed the deployment.
State The status of the deployment.
Start Date The date on which the deployment was started.
End Date The date on which the deployment was completed.

To show the deployment steps and logs for that particular deployment, double-click on a row in the report.

Filtered report

You can filter the report by application or environment. Select the appropriate filter, and then click the applications or environments to include them in the report.

Deployments filtered report

Note: If you change the name of an application that was previously deployed, you will not be able to access detailed reports about that application.
