In this tutorial, you create a custom metric definition and use it to provide data to UrbanCode™ Velocity.
In UrbanCode Velocity, data can come from integrated applications or clients using the REST API.
UrbanCode Velocity provides numerous tools to analyze your data and access your project's status. Numerous metric charts are available out-of-the-box and you can create your own. Charts are configured with metric definitions. Metric definitions describe the expected data values and set chart default values.
In this tutorial, you create a metric definition and use the curl utility to load it into UrbanCode Velocity along with a record that conforms to the metric definition. Finally, you view the custom chart and data in an Insights dashboard.
In this tutorial, you learn how to complete these tasks:
- Create a metric definition.
- Create custom metric records.
- Load the metric definition and custom records into UrbanCode Velocity using the curl utility.
- Create a dashboard that contains a chart based on the metric definition.
- Load our custom data into the chart.
