What happens when new components/system metrics are added to audience-specific pages?

If a subscriber hasn't set up their subscription preferences they'll automatically be subscribed to any new components/system metrics.

If a subscriber has already changed their subscription preferences, they will not automatically be added to new components/system metrics. You will need to edit the audience-specific group or user under Audience to give them access to the new component/system metric.

Editing a metric

1. Navigate to Your page > System metrics.

2. Click the Advanced options tab.

3. Edit the metric and its attributes such as suffix, min and max values for the y-axis, and the metric description. By default, your metric is hidden and will not show up on your status page.

4. Click Update Metrics display when you're satisfied with the changes to make them visible to your page viewers.

Check out your page to see your new metric.
