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. Beneath that section you’ll see charts for different APIs you’re connected to, with their analytics. Within each of these, you can choose to view all functions / a specific functions.

In each graph, you can view the following metrics:

  • Error rates: how many requests are error some
  • Requests: how many requests are being made
  • 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.

Analytics loading times

When selecting time frames other than the default one (using the calendar), it may take longer for the graph to load. This is normal behavior.

Billing

In the billing tab, you can change your credit card details, view all active subscriptions, current percentage of subscription quota used, and view your past transactions.

For each transaction, you can download an invoice / view the daily breakdown of the requests you’ve made.

Free plans

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.
