When in the Metrics section, select your project and you will enter the Metrics manager :


The manager is divided into several sections, with different views :

  • Header view
  • Token view
  • Platform view

Header view


The header is holding several informations about your account:

  • Your region
  • the name of the associated Metrics project
  • Number of series active this month
  • Number of datapoints pushed today
  • The retention for the datapoints

Token View


In this view, you can view and edit your tokens. Those are needed to access the platform. There's two types:

  • read token
  • write token

You can create as many tokens as you want, by clicking on "new token".

Token creation


During token creation, you can set multiples parameters:

  • the associated description for a token
  • type, which is read or write
  • a pair of defaults labels or tags. For a write token, those will be automatically added. For a read token, labels will be added during fetch.
