Iteration metrics


I’ve just joined a company using Gitlab enterprise and I’m keen to help improve iteration times.

Is there a good way to pull out stats like how long a merge request took to reach staging/production stages?

I also want to push for the idea that testing should mostly be done locally and not at a CI level.
So I am keen to catch multiple build failures and then question why that development iteration couldn’t have happened locally.

Thank you for any pointers in advance!

You’ll need an add-on for that. The Screenful dashboard for GitLab provides metrics such as lead and cycle times for issues and also how long issues spend on a specific workflow state before they are completed. You’ll find them in the Timing screen of the dashboard:
