Add a metric as a scorecard criterion

Compass provides several predefined metrics for you to use for your components. See the full list of predefined metrics in Compass here: Available predefined metrics in Compass. You can use these predefined metrics as scorecard criteria, or if you want to use a different metric, you’ll need to first create the metric in Compass. Learn more about creating metrics
