API Platform Update: Zero Downtime Deployment, New Analytics Dashboards, Email Reports . . .
Here are some of the key new features and improvements included in this update.
Zero Downtime API Proxy Deployment
To ensure continuous operation and improved SLAs, you can deploy a new version of an API bundle without the need to un-deploy the existing version first. This update bolsters our multi-tenant and high availability capabilities with some of the following key benefits:
Update your API Proxy versions with no interruptions to traffic on those APIs
Improve the SLAs you offer to your API consumers
Avoid planned outages or maintenance windows related to API revisions or upgrades
We’ve completely revamped the Analytics dashboards to provide a holistic view of your mobile value chain powered by apps, data and APIs:
Measure and monitor not just API program traffic, but also developer activity
Using the top-level dashboard, get a bird’s eye view of the API Traffic & Errors, developers segmented by activity, and top developer apps
- Assess your Developer and Partner Engagement--a key dimension of your API program--right on the top level dashboard
Top-level Analytics dashboard offering insights into “Developer Engagement,” a key dimension of your API program.
Daily Analytics Email Reports
Share the results of your mobility and API programs with daily email reports that provide information about the health of your apps and APIs:
App and API quality-of-service (QoS) statistics, traffic counts, error counts, and change notifications for significant changes in traffic patterns
Apps registered, active developers, apps active, traffic metrics, response times
- Recipients are members of the Operations and Organization Administrators groups and can opt out
Filters in Custom Reports
You can filter content in custom reports against any column in the analytics database using matching, text, and expressions. Some key benefits are:
Increased ease of use and accuracy of reporting
- Improved reporting UI enhanced to provide on-demand report extension across metrics, dimensions, and filters
Custom report filters
Metrics by URI
The Analytics Services reports now include traffic, error, and performance metrics for each URI path. Metrics are gathered based on the patterns you identified and created. As a result, you can:
Identify and create specific patterns that the API program manager would like to track
Filter and isolate the key metrics of interest
