With #9788 (closed) we added a report type for metrics, reported at the end of the pipeline in the Merge Request widget
However, as a user, I may want my pipeline to act differently (different tests, alerts, etc.) depending on the results of a given set of metrics. Thus, it would be ideal to have easy access to the metrics in downstream jobs.
- First class support for
- Perhaps the MVC of this is through the API or some other method.
Permissions and Security
Metrics from protected jobs should only be in protected pipelines - but I believe this security will be handled by our default protected pipeline security today.
