Allow Insights API data to be easily exported to dashboard solutions such as Grafana or Prometheus
Having reviewed https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/insights/#sumo-logic-integrationhis could either be , this is quite interesting and has some relevant to what we wanted information, like "Top Slowest Failed/Successful Jobs" with overview for project. We are not using SUMO, but if you are looking for extending to be supported by alike services to feed something like Grafana or Prometheus, etc. This could either be via an orb or the Insights API.
Considering the Insights dashboard is WIP, it should be obvious that being able to export insights into other services is a brilliant idea. I can easily think of about 10 questions that the Insights dashboard does not yet answer. In any case, users should have freedom to flip their data on its head and query or aggregate or join it in whatever way the want. And that requires being able to export into other tools. For example, I'd like to join it with data from our Git vendor and our project management tool, filter and put some charts together.
This feature is sorely missing for the modern engineering team trying to understand an engineering teams pain points on the path to production.
Locking metrics for CI within circle limits organisations to get a fully picture without trying to write custom exporters or use multiple tools manually for insight
The justification is for better visability into failed tests and slowest failed tests on Insights as well as better reporting and analytics + granularity for jobs.
