1.11 Observation

This section outlines everything you need to know for observing the state of your pipelines.

The Dashboard

The dashboard, available at the default route (/), provides a bird's-eye view of the Concourse cluster. All visible pipelines across all teams are listed here. A "HD view" is available at /hd.

cc.xml

The Concourse API can return the status of a team's pipelines in a format compatible with tools like CCMenu. This endpoint is available at the following route:

/api/v1/teams/{team}/cc.xml

For example: the main team cc.xml.

Badges

The Concourse API supports returning SVG badges indicating the status of a job:

/api/v1/teams/{team}/pipelines/{pipeline}/jobs/{job}/badge

...and for an entire pipeline:

/api/v1/teams/{team}/pipelines/{pipeline}/badge

This can be used to annotate your READMEs with a build status badge like so:

![CI](https://wings.pivotal.io/api/v1/teams/vito/pipelines/booklit/jobs/unit/badge)]

...which should render the following:

Pipeline Visibility

Pipelines may be exposed so that they can be monitored without having to authenticate. For more information, see Pipeline & Build Visibility.
