Module: Metrics

The ThreatConnect TcEx App Framework provides a simple interface for creating and adding Metrics in Apps. The TcExMetricsV2 module will automatically create the Metric if it does not already exist in ThreatConnect. The Metric Name is a unique field in the ThreatConnect platform. For more information on ThreatConnect Metrics, see the documents at https://docs.threatconnect.com/en/latest/rest_api/custom_metrics/custom_metrics.html#custom-metrics.

Metrics Instance

The tcex.metrics() method has required fields of name, description, data_type, interval, and keyed as parameters.

metrics = tcex.metric('My Metrics', 'Metric Testing', 'Sum', 'Daily', False)

Add Metrics

The add() method has a required field of value. It also accepts an option field for date, return_value, and key. If no date is provided, the current datetime will be used. The return_value field will tell the API to return the value for the current interval. The key arg is only used for Keyed Metrics; otehrwise, the add_keyed() method can be used.
