New Heroku Dashboard and Metrics now in Beta

At Heroku, we’re focused on delivering thoughtfully designed systems to improve developer productivity and experience. We firmly believe that improving the development and operations experience helps developers to build and run better apps. This improvement allows developers to focus more on functionality, and businesses to focus more on the value of their applications.

Today we are pleased to announce two new features, both in public beta, that support this mission: a new Heroku Dashboard and Heroku Metrics. These new systems bring developers powerful new clarity and simplicity around application management, execution, and optimization.

New Heroku Dashboard: Managing applications, organizations, and accounts via the web is now easier than ever.

Heroku Metrics: Monitoring production applications and understanding the relationships between runtime characteristics is now built into Heroku.

Both are live for you to begin using now.

Presenting the Heroku Dashboard

Here at Heroku, we focus our energy on developer experience and productivity. Historically, this has revolved around command-line tools like the Heroku Toolbelt. As a polyglot platform, we have developers that come from all backgrounds — some that prefer command-line workflows and others that prefer web interface. Most use a bit of both.

Today, we're introducing a new first-class interface to our platform: the Heroku Dashboard.

App Awareness and Discoverability

The new Heroku Dashboard features a fresh look and feel, optimized for readability and workflow efficiency.

The more apps you deploy to Heroku, the harder keeping track of them becomes. With Dashboard, you can instantly filter your apps not only by name, but also by stack, and buildpack.

App List

If there's an app you access frequently, you can favorite it. This moves it to the top of your app list permanently.

Favorites

The new Activity view displays all code, config, and resource changes by every developer working on an app.

Activity

Additionally, if you specify an app's GitHub repo then you'll have clickable links to a diff of every deploy. Collaboration has never been easier.

New Horizons

As of today, the Dashboard is the default web experience for everyone on the platform.

Watch closely for updates and new features. Dashboard is a great foundation that allows for quick iterations and experimentation — a standard Heroku app that consumes our public API.
