Which dashboard(s) does it exist in?
How is it calculated?Data Sources Required
This metric relies on PRs/MRs collected from GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket, Gitee or other code review tools.Data Transformation Required
The following SQL shows how to find the
coding time of a specific PR. DevLake pre-calculates the metric and stores it in table.pull_requests.
coding_timespan/60 as 'PR Coding Time(h)'
If you want to measure the monthly trend of
PR coding time in the screenshot below, please run the following SQL in Grafana.
DATE_ADD(date(created_date), INTERVAL -DAY(date(created_date))+1 DAY) as time,
avg(coding_timespan)/60 as 'PR Coding Time(h)'
GROUP BY 1
ORDER BY 1
