Conformity metrics

Conformity metrics let you specify one or more conditions and check the percentage of rows that conform to the condition. To create one, begin at Create a metric, and choose Conformity at Step 1 (Metric Info).

Step 2 (Configure Metric)

After you finish Step 1 (Metric Info), Step 2 (Configure Metric) appears in the main form:

  1. Under Select data asset, make sure the right data asset is selected.
  2. To the right of Conditions select Add + to build the condition that checks values for conformity.
    • The selections available vary based whether you choose a single column of type string, a single column of type numeric, or multiple columns.
    • When you create a single-column conformity check, it appears at the column level in your Explorer tree. Currently one multi-column metric is available, "Is Unique", and that will appear at the table level in your Explorer tree.
    • If you add more than one condition, the second and any subsequent conditions must all be true to conform.
    • To delete a condition, use the waste bin icon beside it to the right.
  3. Perform any optional configuration, as described below, then select Next to proceed to Step 3, where you can preview and save your metric.

Optional configuration

  1. Add a WHERE clause.
  2. If needed, override the inherited table configuration.
  3. Add a slice column.
  4. Add seasonality.
  5. Adjust the backfill duration.
  6. Choose a missing value filling.
  7. Add a failing records query.
  8. Add tags.

Step 3 (Preview)

Once you have configured your metric you can preview it to view its behavior over some time period. Review its behavior and modify the configuration as needed. When you're happy with the preview, select Next to continue.

You don't have to preview your metric— just click Next to proceed to Step 4.

Step 4 (Related metrics)

You can add related metrics to help streamline your analysis of any incidents caused by the new metric.

Related metrics are optional. When you've added the ones you want, select Create to finish your new metric.

  • To add a related metric, select Add + and then choose a metric in the listbox that appears.
  • Select Show info inside a related metric to display the metric's ID and data asset(s).
