I have an extension that uses a certain custom metric. I would like to add a dimension to it, but seems it's not possible. One of the justifications is to guarantee the continuity of the data. But looking at the API, seems that we can only create/delete metrics...
I agree that changing some parameters (eg. "unit") might not de feasible, but changing a displayName or adding a dimension doesn't seem unreasonable to me.
Before putting in a Product Idea, has someone an idea if this is possible?
Didn't work. Gives constraint violations, and complains about dimension not being defined.
But I might have forgotten to say one important thing: I'm using API v1, not the v2 line protocol, which I imagine is what you were referring to?
Also could you confirm if this dimension gets later available for custom alerts placeholder message?
I would like to try it sometime later for one of the client use case.
