Synopsis

Calls the CloudWatch RUM BatchCreateRumMetricDefinitions API operation.

Syntax

Add-CWRUMCreateRumMetricDefinition
-Destination <MetricDestination>

-DestinationArn <String>
-MetricDefinition <MetricDefinitionRequest[]>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Specifies the extended metrics and custom metrics that you want a CloudWatch RUM app monitor to send to a destination. Valid destinations include CloudWatch and Evidently. By default, RUM app monitors send some metrics to CloudWatch. These default metrics are listed in CloudWatch metrics that you can collect with CloudWatch RUM. In addition to these default metrics, you can choose to send extended metrics, custom metrics, or both.
  • Extended metrics let you send metrics with additional dimensions that aren't included in the default metrics. You can also send extended metrics to both Evidently and CloudWatch. The valid dimension names for the additional dimensions for extended metrics are BrowserName, CountryCode, DeviceType, FileType, OSName, and PageId. For more information, see Extended metrics that you can send to CloudWatch and CloudWatch Evidently.
  • Custom metrics are metrics that you define. You can send custom metrics to CloudWatch. CloudWatch Evidently, or both. With custom metrics, you can use any metric name and namespace. To derive the metrics, you can use any custom events, built-in events, custom attributes, or default attributes. You can't send custom metrics to the AWS/RUM namespace. You must send custom metrics to a custom namespace that you define. The namespace that you use can't start with AWS/. CloudWatch RUM prepends RUM/CustomMetrics/ to the custom namespace that you define, so the final namespace for your metrics in CloudWatch is RUM/CustomMetrics/your-custom-namespace.
The maximum number of metric definitions that you can specify in one BatchCreateRumMetricDefinitions operation is 200. The maximum number of metric definitions that one destination can contain is 2000. Extended metrics sent to CloudWatch and RUM custom metrics are charged as CloudWatch custom metrics. Each combination of additional dimension name and dimension value counts as a custom metric. For more information, see Amazon CloudWatch Pricing. You must have already created a destination for the metrics before you send them. For more information, see PutRumMetricsDestination. If some metric definitions specified in a BatchCreateRumMetricDefinitions operations are not valid, those metric definitions fail and return errors, but all valid metric definitions in the same operation still succeed.

Parameters

-AppMonitorName <String>
The name of the CloudWatch RUM app monitor that is to send the metrics.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
Amazon.PowerShell.Cmdlets.CWRUM.AmazonCloudWatchRUMClientCmdlet.ClientConfig
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Destination <MetricDestination>
The destination to send the metrics to. Valid values are CloudWatch and Evidently. If you specify Evidently, you must also specify the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CloudWatchEvidently experiment that will receive the metrics and an IAM role that has permission to write to the experiment.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-DestinationArn <String>
This parameter is required if Destination is Evidently. If Destination is CloudWatch, do not use this parameter.This parameter specifies the ARN of the Evidently experiment that is to receive the metrics. You must have already defined this experiment as a valid destination. For more information, see PutRumMetricsDestination.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-MetricDefinition <MetricDefinitionRequest[]>
An array of structures which define the metrics that you want to send.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesMetricDefinitions
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the Destination parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^Destination' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is '*'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.CloudWatchRUM.Model.BatchCreateRumMetricDefinitionsResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.CloudWatchRUM.Model.BatchCreateRumMetricDefinitionsResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesRegionToCall
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesSK, SecretAccessKey
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns an Amazon.CloudWatchRUM.Model.BatchCreateRumMetricDefinitionsResponse object containing multiple properties. The object can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
