๐Ÿข Importing Org Data

To make sense of all your engineering data, you need ownership. Faros creates a service catalog where you can quickly identify which teams and individuals own certain domains. To capture ownership we must start with capturing your organization structure. This includes

  • Teams and team hierarchy
  • Employees and team membership
  • Identity mapping across services. For example, connecting an employee to their GitHub handle and Jira user.

There are two ways to get this data into Faros.

  1. Entering Org Data in UI: This works better for smaller teams who want to manipulate users and teams in the Faros console.
  2. Importing Org Data with Google Sheets: Larger teams find it easier to import users, identities and teams from a google sheet.

It is important that you stick to one source of truth. Meaning, if you are using the spreadsheet import method, don't make team or employee changes in the UI. Instead manipulate that data in the spreadsheet. Faros will pick the data up on the next sync.
