Get Property Metrics

Updated on August 6, 2014


This web service returns a list of metric values for a specific property and period ending date based on the specified set of metrics and measurement system. The property must already be shared with you. A full list of the reporting metrics that are available through this service and related web services can be found here. The list includes the metric name, the appropriate web service call for the metric, and a glossary link. It can be sorted and filtered for ease of finding the metrics that you need.

Note: Metrics that are readily available through other web services, such as GET /property and GET /propertyUse are not included in the reporting web services, since they are already accessible elsewhere.
