Learn about the Rakuten RapidAPI dashboard and how to use it
The Rakuten RapidAPI developer dashboard is where you can see all of your apps, locate API keys, view analytics, and manage billing settings.
To access the dashboard, simply log in to Rakuten RapidAPI, click ‘My Apps’ in the top right menu. Alternatively, you can head directly to english.api.rakuten.net/developer and sign in with your Rakuten RapidAPI account.

In the main dashboard, you’ll see account wide analytics and account information. To get more detailed information, you can select tabs on the left-hand side of the screen.
App Specific Analytics
Using the Rakuten RapidAPI dashboard, you can also view analytics specific to each app in your account. To do so, switch over to the ‘Analytics’ tab of your application in the dashboard.
On the top of the page, you’ll be able to see a chart with all the calls being made to all the APIs your app is connected to. You’ll also be able to see a log with all the request data. You are also able to filter these analytics to only show certain APIs within the app.
In each graph, you can view the following metrics:
- API Calls: how many requests are being made
- Error rates: how many requests are error some
- Latency: how long (on average) requests take to execute
You may change the time period you’re looking at by clicking the little calendar icon and choosing a date range.

Update Credit Card Details
Within the Billing Information page, you can easily update your credit card details.
View Transaction History
The Transaction History page provides a breakdown of how much you have spent on an API, both monthly recurring cost & overage fees. Plus view or download your invoice and a summary of usage for the month.
Track Active Subscriptions
Worried that you might go over your quota for the month? With the Subscriptions & Usage page, you can take a look at your account’s active subscriptions, plus how much of the quota you have used and the amount of time remaining until the quota resets.
Even subscriptions for free plans will show up, with a $0 amount. This is for your records only, and no credit card transaction is performed.
