Extend API usage into your reports (TCS)

Overview

MindTouch allows you to track the usage of any API integration that you implement. This how-to will allow Administrator to monitor adoption and quality of their MindTouch integrations.

Goal

This tutorial will show you how to implement your API extension so that MindTouch can seamlessly track its activity.

First Step

MindTouch recognizes your custom extension by the way of a query parameter. You can append this query parameter to any request you make against the MindTouch API.

 

origin parameter:

The origin parameter will group all requests together and track them over time.

Second Step

Now that your extension is appending this parameter you can track the usage by going to the Usage Report.


Your extension will now show up as a separate category in the table and show you how many requests have been received.

What's Next

Now you will have some insight into how your extension is being used you can adapt it to see how it fares over time. If you need help integrating with the MindTouch API, check out our API documentation.
