What are the character limitations for metric names?

#1

Can metric names contain numbers and special characters? What about spaces?

I recommend metric names be restricted to regular ascii characters and numbers with no spaces.

I don’t believe there are any specific limitations

You cannot use - in simple metric names & compound metric ids, nor can you use spaces in compound metric ids & simple metric names.

Recommendation is to:

  1. Always start with a capital letter
  2. Every next logical word should have a capital letter without a space
    e.g. ThisIsMyMetric

Also, the length of the compound metric id will be limited by what is allowed by relational database id column
