How do I filter out bot users from metrics? Dependabot pull requests are skewing my numbers.
Unfortunately, at cauldron.io public version there is no way to identify if a contributor is a bot because personal data is anonymized.
There is a tricky way to filter bots from your Kibana workspace (you can access from the left bar of a report). You can find a commit/pull request from
dependabot, get its
author_name and exclude its contributions. It is not ideal, but it could help:
The simpler way is using Cauldron Cloud. You will have your own instance where you have access to Hatstall, a web interface to manage people identities information. You can select what identities are bots and filter them in Kibana:
Hope it helps
Thank you, JJ. I will check it out.
