How do I push string value metrics to InfluxDB on Grafana Cloud?

I would like to send a payload in Point format:

curl -X  POST -H  "Authorization: Bearer <Auth_INFO>" -H  "Content-Type: text/plain" "" -d 'conversation_created,source=local conversation_uuid="test"'

The endpoint returns a 204, but the metric never appears in the explorer.

This seems to be a known limitation - how do I get around that issue?

Hey, Yeah don’t think storing string as a metric value is supported in Prometheus itself.

I’d probably send this value as a log if its just a string (You’d be able to do better aggregations also IMO)
