Task 7 - View Analytics

Last updated: 1 minute read.


We have now created and tested our API. How do we know that they are performing well? This page walks you through how to then view your API analytics so that you can ensure your APIs are performing perfectly.

Steps to check your API analytics

  • Step 1 - Access the Dashboard: You’ll now look at the analytics for the API you created in Task 5.If you’re not still in the Tyk Dashboard for your Control Plane, click the dashboard link in the Control Plane Ingress list. Click the Gateway Dashboard menu item and you can see the successful calls made to your API from the Cloud Data Plane you created.

  • Step 2 - Create an Error: From the Cloud Data Plane, make a call that will throw an error. For example, use me-app instead of my-app. You should see the error displayed in the Analytics.
