Position of a unique child-level dimension in the API call


Wanted to know when we get entities based on the first dimension ("host")) then we query for metric data we have multiple dimensions in response. So wanted to confirm if the unique child-level dimension is always the last element in dimension.

"dimensions": [


So in this example unique child-level dimension name is at 3rd index i.e, size-1. This size-1 is common across Dynatrace for all metrics? Need confirmation here.

I don't know what you are referring to as "unique child-level dimension", but in any case, there is no guarantee about the ordering of dimensions in the response, this may vary from metric to metric. Don't rely on this ordering / make any assumptions about it.
