Conversational Development Index

Introduced in GitLab 9.3.

The Conversational Development Index (ConvDev Index) gives you an overview of your entire instance’s adoption of Concurrent DevOps from planning to monitoring. It displays the usage of these GitLab features over the last 30 days, averaged over the number of active users in that time period. It also provides a Lead score per feature, which is calculated based on GitLab’s analysis of top-performing instances based on usage ping data that GitLab has collected. Your score is compared to the lead score, expressed as a percentage. Your overall index score is an average of all your feature score percentages.

The page also provides helpful links to articles and GitLab docs, to help you improve your scores.

Your GitLab instance’s usage ping must be activated in order to use this feature. Usage ping data is aggregated on GitLab’s servers for analysis. Your usage information is not sent to any other GitLab instances.

If you have just started using GitLab, it may take a few weeks for data to be collected before this feature is available.
