New Feature: Spotlights Reports

Mashery is pleased to announce the release of Spotlights, a new set of reports that enables our customers to enjoy unprecedented levels of visibility into the performance of their API programs.

The new Spotlights set of reports have been designed to answer a diverse collection of interesting business questions through new data visualizations depicting the behavior of individual developers and the overall API program alike. Customers can find the Spotlights section under the Reports Tab in the API Usage navigation area.

I look forward to seeing the new and exciting ways that our customers gain a competitive advantage by utilizing these data visualizations of their API program data.

The Spotlights report entitled “Historical Call Volume Trends” is designed to provide customers with the tools to identify developers who have:

  • an increasing trend of consuming the API data and would be excellent candidates for potential showcasing broadly in future communications
  • a decreasing trend to consuming the API data and would represent opportunities for an API program account manager to proactively engage

The Spotlights report entitled “Error Volume Trends” is designed to provide customers with the tools to identify developers who have:

  • a trend of unsuccessfully consuming the API data and would benefit from additional guidance or documentation on best practices

The Spotlights report entitled “Historical API Usage Limit Enforcement Trends” is designed to provide customers with the tools to identify developers who have:

  • a trend of exceeding the current API data consumption limits applied by the API provider with regard to the daily quota of requests allowed (Quota) or to the allowed calls-per-second (QPS).

The Spotlights report entitled “Hourly Call Volume Trends” is designed to provide customers with the tools to identify:

  • trends in the overall hourly demand pattern of the API program with respect to the distribution of successful or unsuccessful consumption of API data
