Archiving Metrics

Archiving a Metric

To archive a metric, select the metric(s) you want to archive. Once you've selected at least one metric, you will see a toolbar of options appear to Archive, Compare, or Tag the selected metrics.

Tap the Archive button and you will see the metric change to a disabled state with the "Archived" symbol next to it to indicate that it is archived.

Implications of Archiving a Metric

If you archive a metric, the metric will be hidden in your Metrics Catalog and in Pulse. This means-

  • Archived metrics will not show up in your Metric Catalog search. To access all archived metrics, go to the last page(s) of your Metrics Catalog.
  • Archived metrics will be removed from Pulse, including any time the archived metric has been added to the Scorecard of an experiment or the Monitoring Metrics section of a Feature Gate
  • Any Custom Metrics that leverage an archived metric will not be impacted, as we are still computing all archived metrics on the backend. However, it's still recommended to take a pass on any Custom Metrics that use an archived metric to decide whether you need to swap out the archived metric being used for another metric in the Custom Metric setup.

Unarchiving a Metric

If you mistakenly archived a metric you can undo your archive by "Unarchiving" the metric. Simply go to the last page or two of your Metrics Catalog, select the archived metric, and tap "Unarchive" from the banner at the top of the Metric Detail view page. This will restore the metric to both your Metrics Catalog as well as any experiment results that include the metric.
