Creating Queries

Trusted Metrics data can be easily queried by accessing the W3bstream Metrics portal at metrics.w3bstream.com and logging in with your GitHub account. In the following sections, we will guide you on how to create Trusted Metrics queries, which you can later use to create insightful dashboards. Moreover, these queries can be executed, and the results retrieved through an API endpoint, providing you with seamless integration and further data analysis options.

Accessing the Query Designer

To access the Trusted Metrics Query Designer, open metrics.w3bstream.com and login with your GitHub account:
Once logged in, use the + button in the top-right corner of the page, and select New Query to access the Query Designer:

Creating Queries

To create a Trusted Metrics query, which you can later access for your needs, follow the steps below:
  1. 1.
    Type the following query in the Query Editor:
SELECT project, SUM(value) as total
FROM ws_metrics.publishers_metrics
WHERE project='eth_0x2c37a2cbcfaccdd0625b4e3151d6260149ee866b_test'
GROUP BY project
The above query will return a single record as a result, providing the total number of devices registered for a certain project.
