Users that are signed up to your portal are called “Developers”, these users have access to a Dashboard page which show them their API usage over the past 7 days as well as the policy and quota limits on their relevant keys.
Developers can sign up to multiple APIs using the API catalogue.
Developer accounts belong to an organisation ID, so accounts cannot be shared across organisations in a Tyk Dashboard setup.
Navigate to the Portal Developers Section
Select Add Developer

Developer Profile Overview
The first panel in a developer profile will show you an avatar (if they have a Gravatar-enabled email address), as well as the basic fields of their signup:
The next panel will show you their apI usage as an aggregate for all the tokens that they have generated with their developer access:
In this panel, you will be able to see the various policies that the developer has signed up to, and enable you to revoke or update their access to a different policy (e.g. upgrade them to a higher policy tier).
To drill down into the specific usage patterns for each token, click ANALYTICS for the subscription.
