Application Quality Dashboard

Application quality

The Application Quality dashboard is a Pega Platform™ tool that lets you monitor your application's health as you build. The dashboard identifies areas within your application that need improvement. It is a Pega Express™ best practice to check this dashboard regularly. The Application Quality dashboard provides an easy and holistic way to validate your application and identify potential issues before becoming a major problem.

Tip: Check the Application Quality dashboard often. It is one of the quickest ways to validate elements of your application's quality.

Metrics available

The dashboard looks similar to the following image and provides metrics commonly used during application development. You see numbers, percentages, and scores along with severity metrics. Use the dashboard to investigate further, resolve violations, and improve the application quality. 

You can view the following metrics:

  • Rule, case, and application includes the number of executable rules (functional rules that are supported by test coverage) and the number of case types in the selected applications.
  • Guardrail compliance shows the compliance score, the number of guardrail violations for the included applications, and a graph depicting compliance score changes over time. 
  • Test coverage shows the percentage and number of rules covered by tests, the last generation date of the application-level coverage report for the selected applications, and a graph of changes to application-level coverage over time. 
  • Unit testing displays the percentage and number of Pega unit test cases that passed for the selected applications, over the period selected on the Application Quality Settings landing page. The graph illustrates the changes to the test pass rate over time. 
  • Case types provides guardrail score, severe guardrail warnings, test coverage, unit test pass rate, and scenario test pass rate for each case type in the applications. 
  • Data types shows guardrail score, severe guardrail warnings, test coverage, and unit test pass rate for each data type. 
  • Other rules displays guardrail score, test coverage, test pass rate, the number of warnings, a list of rules with warnings, the number and list of uncovered rules, and the number and list of failed test cases for rules that are used in the selected applications but that are not a part of any case type.
