Fields
name

string

The name of the metric. See the API Metrics for the list of metric names.

If expression is specified, name can be any string that you would like within the allowed character set. For example if expression is screenPageViews/sessions, you could call that metric's name = viewsPerSession. Metric names that you choose must match the regular expression "^[a-zA-Z0-9_]$".

Metrics are referenced by name in metricFilter, orderBys, and metric expression.

expression

string

A mathematical expression for derived metrics. For example, the metric Event count per user is eventCount/totalUsers.

invisible

boolean

Indicates if a metric is invisible in the report response. If a metric is invisible, the metric will not produce a column in the response, but can be used in metricFilter, orderBys, or a metric expression.
