With dashboards, you're able to see the information most relevant to you - whether that's objects related to marketing analytics or critical outages that'd impact executive reporting.

By default, when you log into your Metaplane account, you'll see an overview of everything you can monitor within Metaplane on the homepage. This includes all of the Connections] you have integrated with Metaplane that support monitoring, open incidents, offline monitors, and sync issues (typically caused by connection outages).

Custom Dashboards

There are two common scenarios that dictate when you'd want to pay close attention to specific objects and create a custom dashboards.

  1. Critical objects: Your source of truth for revenue (e.g. SALESFORCE.OPPORTUNITY.AMOUNT), used daily for executive reporting, might be one example of objects that could be classified as a "p0" issue if there were ever an outage.
  2. Specific use cases: An ad reports table used in marketing analytics or a 'customer_renewal_score' feeding into Salesforce are examples of objects that are useful for strategic decisions carried out by different business units.

In both scenarios, you'll group your objects with Tags , either applied manually or imported from existing dbt tags. You can then create a dashboard with only the objects you care about by using "+ Dashboard" from the tabs on your homepage, and selecting a tag.

Incident Resolution Metrics

You'll find these incident resolution metrics at the bottom of your dashboard(s). The incident counts and time to resolution are unique to the incidents related to your specific dashboard, including custom dashboards. These are calculated by:

  • Incident counts: Incident open/close counts represent all incidents detected by Metaplane. They’re summed by month.
  • Average time to resolution: Average incident close time is the amount of time it took for open incidents to be closed, averaged by month. Open incidents are not included in the average.
