We have launched a new way to track the deployments for the DORA Metrics, with Repository Tags. We now have 3 options for identifying deployments:

  1. Pull Requests merged into a specified branch 
  2. Deployments sent via the Waydev API
  3. Repository Tags (currently only for GitHub)

This addition aims to provide more options for setting up DORA Metrics, enhancing flexibility and precision. While currently exclusive to GitHub, we’ll extend this feature to all integrations in the future, broadening its applicability and utility.
