Hi! In this video, I will show how you can improve the monitoring of API calls in the SnapLogic Manager. In SnapLogic, a triggered task equals to an API and the SnapLogic platform throttles for API invocations. Although there are no throttling limits imposed for ground URL-based triggered task invocations, throttling applies to API invocations made against the triggered tasks cloud URL.
The SnapLogic Manager shows two types of API limits: the total API limit, which is the maximum number of API invocations that can be made per day, and the concurrent API limit, which is the maximum number of API invocations that can be made concurrently. If your organization reaches the maximum of either one of these limits, any additional API invocation made against the cloud triggered URLs would fail. These failed API invocations can result into disrupted business processes in your organization.
As the organization’s administrator, you can eliminate the chances of maxing out your API calls that can disrupt your organization’s processes by having better visualization of the API calls made in SnapLogic. You can navigate to the settings page and click on the ‘API Usage Detail’ button to see the API Usage Detail window. You have the option to monitor the usage data for both the daily API limit and the concurrent API limit by clicking on the ‘Daily’ or the ‘Concurrent’ tabs. On the right tab, you can select a specific date or time stamp to fetch information.
From the ‘Daily’ tab, I can see some meaningful information, such as the number of API calls, API name or task name, the SnapLogic project where the task is located under, and the owner of a SnapLogic task. There is also a visual representation of a pie chart that shows the distribution of APIs invocated. Additionally, I can also monitor the number of API calls made or the number of available API calls by a given day.
By having visibility into your API calls, you can better manage and eliminate disruptive issues from hitting the maximum number of API calls.
