How many Dradis projects did you create this year? How many Issues did you find? Which were the most commonly found Issues? What was the most common severity of the Issues that you found?
Credit for this script idea goes to Marc Ligthart. His teammate reached out via the support inbox to see if we could create a quick “Year in Review” script that would list out the following:
1. Count of Projects created this year
2. Total Critical/High/Medium/Low Issues (by Tag)
3. Top 10 most found Issues (by title)
4. Top 10 most found Critical/High/Medium Issues (by title)
You can already head over to our scripting repo and check out the Year in Review script. To use it:
1. SCP the file you your instance (e.g. to the /tmp folder)
2. Run the following in the command line as “dradispro”:
$ cd /opt/dradispro/dradispro/current/
$ RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails runner /tmp/year_in_review.rb
The output will list out the yearly review for all of the projects present on your Dradis instance.
Now, for the fun part? We want your feedback. If you like this idea, you’ll like version 2.0 even better. We want to include this functionality as part of the existing Business Intelligence Dashboard within Dradis. But first, we want to hear from you. What else would you like to see in a summary view like this in the BI Dashboard? What other metrics would be helpful for your team or what isn’t particularly useful about the current output? Please email our support team directly with feedback! We’re excited to continue working with you in 2020 and get you some more valuable insights into your Dradis usage along the way.
