Hey, thanks for your answers. I was looking at the Custom Metric API yesterday. I am a tad confused about the TimeseriesRegistrationMessage object. The values I want to send will be static and have no relation to time what so ever (It's just some versioning information from the build server)
So for this case what would the unit I need to use be? Count seems to require a timestamp.

Conner, Using Parameter Capture, you can capture (on a per purepath basis) parameters that are passed as part of an incoming request.

As for 'creating a tile', this probably doesn't make sense as tiles are generally aggregated views of data and parameter capture is generally unique to each transaction so I don't know how one would visualize or even use this type of transactional data in a tile.
