    thanks for the feedback Arun. The reason it's not that way currently is that that page is about managing agents and we don't want to distract from that. But I see your point and we might be able to achieve the same result without diluting that page.

    Thanks again

    P.S.: we you haven't already please take a look at the new Go 13.2 and upgrade your installation :-)

    Thanks Marco. Appreciate your quick response! 

    We just upgraded to 13.2 and looks great! :). Immediate feedback on 13.2 ... the dependency graph (when I click on a version of a pipeline) is confusing and doesn't instantly convey the information I need urgently (which the prev version did). 

    The main reason I wanted the feature (column in Agents tab) is to know which of the pipelines is actually running (as compared to "Not assigned an IP"). Based on your input, I have a few other suggestions or needs that will REALLY help me in my day-to-day tasks. 

    1. Today I see all the pipelines in "yellow/building" state and there is no way for me to know which ones are actually running vs. waiting for agent. If you can change the color of pipeline that is waiting to yellow and that is running to blue (or something different than green/red), it would be awesome
    2. I would love to have a "Job Queue" tab that shows all the jobs in the queue (running + waiting) that updates live (just like the Agents tab). There is an API already for this and would love to just see a tab for this
    3. A pipeline shows the days/time ago it was triggered but not when it got completed and the actual run time (from the time it got an agent). I can only see this if I go to the job's page. My pain point is ... a pipeline shows green/completed and says "triggered 2 days ago". I have no way to say (from this page) if it actually took 2 days to run or that it actually took 10 mins but got assigned an agent only now. When I have a Pipelines page with 150 pipelines, I can't click every single one to find out this detail.

    Hi!

    > Immediate feedback on 13.2 ... the dependency graph (when I click on a version of a pipeline) is confusing and

    what do you find confusing?

    > doesn't instantly convey the information I need urgently (which the prev version did). 

    that's why the stage-level one (the old one) is still there :-D if you click on any (run) stage anywhere you will get to the stage one as usual. So you can click on a run stage in the dashboard and go directly to the stage page as before, or click on a stage in the new Value Stream Map and get there as well

    > The main reason I wanted the feature (column in Agents tab) is to know which of the pipelines

    > is actually running (as compared to "Not assigned an IP").

    this explains a lot and you will be happy to know that we already have a solution along the lines of point number 1. Number 2 is something we've been playing with forever, never quite giving it the final push but is in the cards and expect number 3 to arrive soon since that's the kind of information we want to surface (also) on the new Value Stream Map (to eventually get to the entire cycle-time and other useful metrics)

    Thanks again!

    Marco

    Hi Arun,

       hope this finds you well. Was my last reply helpful at all?

    In particular I'm interested in knowing what you found confusing at first glance so we can improve it!

    Thanks

    Marco,

    Apologies for the delayed reply. Are you available for a quick call? Easier on the phone to provide quick comments/feedback.
