API analytics provide a graphical overview of activity and API usage, as well as the ability to drill down to specific activities and events. The Overview dashboard offers a collection of panels that contain reports about APIs. Use the dashboard to view visual summary information about APIs, such as trends in usage over time, APIs with the most invocations, and the most frequent users.
When users invoke API calls, the organization can track general API usage activity for API access instances and access exceptions. The organization may need to track access exceptions to accommodate business or legal needs. API Manager creates an activity log for all API access instances, and an event log to track any access exceptions that users create when invoking APIs.
The organization can create IP filtering, rate limiting, basic authentication, and privacy policies. If an API call breaches a policy, API Manager logs the incident in the event log.
