Metric Importances Object

An object describing the relative importance of each parameter, corresponding to a specific metric. A Pagination of these objects is returned from the Metric Importances List endpoint.

This object behaves like a dictionary or mapping in most programming languages. Fields can be accessed using standard notation, such as obj['key'] in Python or obj.get('key') in Java.
