CSV Report columns changed - Pranjal - 07-30-2014 05:01 AM

Hi!

Is there an official cycle of adding new columns in the csv report (summary)?

I have scripts that read these reports and add data to the database.

It would be great if changes to the report could be announced in advance.

Thanks!

No, sorry. The CSV is just an extract of the raw format that the agents use for reporting metrics and new columns happen fairly regularly. If you need guaranteed stability then your best bet is to do a transform on the results and extract just the fields you care about (even better would be to extract from the JSON or XML formats which are much more well defined).
