Metric Library Overview
While each data integration in Ambition will house its own "Manage" tab that contains a list of all active metrics within that integration, the metric library provides a single pane for viewing all active metrics from all data integrations at once.
Access the Metric Library
1. Open the left navigation and click Administration > Data > Metric Library.
Navigate the Metric Library
Upon entering the metric library, you are presented with a list of all the metrics that have been built within a data integration in Ambition.
Metrics that have been created in an integration with "Sandbox Mode" enabled will be accessible within the metric library as well.

Locate an Existing Metric
Metrics will be listed in alphabetical order by name. The "Name" column is sortable and can be sorted from Z-A with a single click on the column header.
Metrics can also be be found through searching or filtering.
Use the "Search" in the upper right to search for a metric by its name.
Click the filter icon in the upper right, , to filter the metric list by:
- Associated Integration - Search by the name of the data integration that receives data to populate the metric. ex. Salesforce, API - Daily Totals, Cisco.
- Last Metric Update - Select a time frame that reflects when Ambition last received a data upload within the respective integration that receives data to populate the metric. If a Salesforce metric, the "Last Metric Update" will reflect when Ambition last received an upload from the object or report that populates the metric. Formula Builder metrics will not display a "Last Metric Update" time.
- Lock Date - Select a time frame the reflects the lock date on a metric. Not all metrics will have lock dates as a lock date is only selected when making a notable change to metric logic. Learn more here.
