Register a Metric class for use as a callable metric within Expectations.

  • metric_name – A name identifying the metric. Metric Name must be globally unique in a great_expectations installation.

  • metric_domain_keys – A tuple of the keys used to determine the domain of the metric.

  • metric_value_keys – A tuple of the keys used to determine the value of the metric.

  • execution_engine – The execution_engine used to execute the metric.

  • metric_class – A valid Metric class containing logic to compute attributes of data.

  • metric_provider – The MetricProvider class from which the metric_class inherits.

  • metric_fn_type – The MetricFunctionType or MetricPartialFunctionType used to define the Metric class.


A dictionary containing warnings thrown during registration if applicable, and the success status of registration.
