Workspace API Connect

Created on Mar 8, 2023

Restore full capabilities of Kibana powered Analytics discover tab

In API Connect 10.0.1.x catalog analytics discover tab exposed rich capabilities to filter and explore data provided by Kibana (judging from look and behavior).

In API Connect 10.0.5.x it was replaced by custom panel - with look and feel consistent with rest of UI but with significantly reduced capacities.

It would be good to either regain all filtering capacities in new UI or get access for old UI for advanced data exploration.

    Thank you for all that voted on this idea. With the addition in 10.0.7 (CD) of column customization in the discovery view we are closing out this idea as completed. This feature will be available in future LTS release but will not be back ported to v10.0.5.x.

    If there is additional enhancements that you would like to see in support of your business and use case(s) please open up a new feature request on our Idea encourage other members of the community to provide feedback and vote.

    Thank you for the Enhancement Request, in we have added many of the features that have been requested.

    From the 'Edit" expansion panel you can Add/Remove/Edit any of the filters that are current set and either Apply them to your current and/or Save to use them again later. As part of that panel we provide:

    • Adding Filter such as the quick click 'Errors only (4xx, 5xx) or adding 1 or more Field level filters to search of a wide range of data points.

    • Set Time Range with built in selections such as "Last 15 minutes" or select Custom for a Start/End Date Pickers.

    • Apply the filter to see the changed results in the view

    • Save the Filter for reuse in the future

    • Load query to see the generated Platform API Query string, helpful when wanting to pragmatically access the Analytics data without having to spend time manually converting the UX to REST Query. (e.g. api_id=startswith:1234&app_name=DemoApp&catalog_name=Sandbox&start=2023-03-01T18:00:00.000Z&end=2023-03-03T08:30:00.000Z) The Query string can be both copied out of the window as well as copied in and we will load it into the UX.

    • Any filter once applied shows up in the banner and can be removed by clicking on the X so you don't have to enter the 'Edit' Mode.

    What we don't currently provide that was in the old model is the ability to.

    • modify the columns of the table

    • Graph at the top of the table showing frequency of the results over time.

    Both of these additions will be considered for future enhancements.

    The ability to create custom views and dashboards is critical to many organizations. We have found these abilities to be critical to API monitoring and problem troubleshooting. Removal of this capability cripples the Analytics portion of API Connect, and removes one of the key differentiators of the API Connect product. It forces organizations using API Connect to look elsewhere for data analysis and presentation capabilities. What was once simple and built in is now difficult and complex. I do appreciate the improved performance and better ability to handle large data sets of the new implementation (these were serious issues in the old implementation), but an equivalent filtering and customization mechanism is needed and the capability should be restored, even if it is not restored using Kibana.
