The API Gateway dashboard has undergone a big renovation!
This link will take you to the new dashboard where you can begin setting up the reports you would like to see. You can click the “Start Tour” button to familiarize yourself with the new interface.
Create a Dashboard
First, you’ll need to create a new container dashboard. Here’s how:
Click on the “Add Dashboard” button
Give your dashboard a unique name
Tick the “Public” checkbox if you want others to be able to see your dashboard.
Configure Your Charts
Now that you’ve created a container for your dashboard, you can configure your charts. Here’s how:
Click the “Add chart” button to add the charts you wish to track.
This will open up a configuration window where you can configure what you want to see in a specific chart. In the “Type” field, select the chart type that you want to view. In this example, we’ll select the new “Throttling activity” chart. It will add a default title to the report, but you may change that at your own discretion.
We’ve added 15 new types of charts including origin errors, API key traffic, and cache hits and misses, and more.
Next, choose the level of detail you would like to see: Cumulative or Individual.
If you choose “Individual”, you’ll be able to customize the level of detail you would like to see: API, Resource, or HTTP method.
If you choose “Cumulative”, you’ll be able to see activity across all APIs.
Next, at the bottom of the screen, select the endpoints for which you’d like to monitor throttling behavior.
When you have completed this configuration, click the “Done” button at the bottom right of the screen. This will save your configuration choices and enable the chart.
Finally, you’ll need to use the time chart to select a time frame for the data. You can select a custom time period, or any of the pre-defined time periods (ex: Yesterday, Last month) to view your data.
If you followed along, you’ve set up your chart which will automatically refresh and update your chosen data.
Note: You can add more charts to the dashboard by repeating this process.
We’ve added a new interface and more types of charts to our API Gateway Dashboard. You can read more about our latest updates in our API Gateway documentation.
You can switch between this new version and the existing version at will, but we plan to deprecate the old version in the next couple of months.
