LeanIX Metrics

LeanIX Metrics helps you to display KPIs and their development over time in the context of the right Fact Sheet.

In modern IT organizations, a wide range of expert tools generate high amounts of data. The big challenge is to leverage this data. According to Gartner, 90% of the information assets from big data analytics efforts through 2017 will be siloed and unleveragable. LeanIX Metrics allows to display time series data in the context of Fact Sheets and thereby establish a useful business context.


The following video gives you 5 concrete examples how to use LeanIX metrics - you can also access the slides:

Import your first metric

To import your first metric, go to https://eu-svc.leanix.net/services/metrics/v1/docs/#/points or USA customers please navigate to https://us-svc.leanix.net/services/metrics/v1/docs/#/points . You need to create an API Token and enter it on the top right to execute queries directly from the API documentation.

In the documentation, enter the following JSON and hit "try it out"

    "measurement": "My First Metric",
    "workspaceId": "<your workspace ID>",
    "time": "2018-02-14T07:15:00.544Z",
    "tags": [{
            "k": "factSheetID",
            "v": "<your fact sheet ID>"
    "fields": [{
            "k": "Availability",
            "v": "99"
            "k": "ResponseTime",
            "v": "123"
            "k": "NumberOfUsers",
            "v": "12"

You need to adapt and to your context. Now, go to Admin - Metrics, and you should see the first measurement.

Export data from Metrics

Similarly, we provide an endpoint to export data from Metrics via API: https://eu-svc.leanix.net/services/metrics/v1/docs/#!/measurements/getMeasurements, USA customers please navigate to https://us-svc.leanix.net/services/metrics/v1/docs/#!/measurements/getMeasurements .

You would need to provide a query, e.g. to get all available data for a certain fact sheet ID:

  "q": "\"factSheetID\"='<your fact sheet id>'",
  "workspaceId": "<your workspace ID>"

Use Python

We provide a showcase python implementation here: https://github.com/leanix-public/scripts/tree/master/importMetrics
