In order to better support to project teams, as well as giving the general public insight into the community's activity, the Foundation maintains a dashboard at metrics.finos.org.
Please don't be shy about playing with the tool - none of the filtering changes you make are persisted (unless you choose to bookmark the page, and even then the changes are only available via that bookmark), so you can play as much as you like and always reset back to the default view simply by navigating back to the tool's home page.
Some of the dashboards provide pre-defined filters for certain common operations. These predefined filters appear as "bubbles" at the top of the dashboard:
Some of these filters are disabled (turned off) by default, and this is indicated by the candy striped colours on the bubbles. To turn a filter on, mouseover the bubble, and find the checkbox at the left hand end of the tray of control toggles:
Checking this checkbox will enable the filter, and the dashboard will automatically update to reflect the new restriction. The filter bubble will also become a solid colour, to visually indicate that the filter is in effect:
You may also enable and disable all filters at once, using the Actions menu visible at the right hand end of the row of filter bubbles.
A red bubble is a
NOT filter, while a grey bubble is an
AND filter (see below for more information regarding conditions).
While the embedded dashboards and predefined filters are convenient, more powerful custom filters are available when using the full version of the tool.
Date Range Filter
At the top right corner of the tool is a menu showing the current date range - for most dashboards this defaults to "Last 2 Years". Clicking on this menu will bring up various date range filters:
