Metrics API Code Examples

The Rollbar Metrics API provides the ability to retrieve important metrics about the data that is sent to Rollbar to help teams to make decisions about their SDLC

Here are some example scripts that utilize the Rollbar Metrics API:

Best-practice for access tokens used for Metrics API calls

It is recommended that you use separate project access tokens and a separate account access token for Metrics API calls, with an appropriate rate limit.
Access tokens used for Metrics API calls should be named in way that makes it clear that they are being used for Metrics API calls

Access tokens that access the Metrics API require Read scope
