Get Started    

Make an API Call

API calls are what APImetrics is all about. Our user interface guides through all the steps necessary to get a call up and running

Key Concepts

An API call is a synthetic transaction to an API endpoint made by an APImetrics agent from one or more cloud locations or a virtual or physical servers in your internal network.

Create the API call

Click the + Add API Call either from the side Navigation menu or the top left of the dashboard.

This brings up the Create API Call dialog. There is a default URL already entered. Generally you will replace this with the URL of the API endpoint you are interested in exercising . You can add a name and choose the HTTP method from the dropdown. The tabs along the bottom let you access more advanced features (Preview, URL Parameters, Authentication, Headers, Body) if desired.

Clicking on the Save Changes button takes you to the Preview page. If you don't choose a name, an automatically generated one will be assigned. You can change this to something more user friendly by editing the name.

Clicking on Edit let you edit the details of the calls.

Make the API call

When you're ready, click Run for the call to be executed from our default server (Google US Central-1 (Iowa)) or click the dropdown to pick a specific location.

The call will then be executed and the results shown.

"RUN NOW"

Runs the API call from our default server (Google - Iowa, USA) - the dropdown arrow allows you to pick a different location to run from.

There will be a short delay in showing results depending on location

As we're making the call from a remote, real, location, there will be a slight delay as the call is sent to the remote agent and then executed.

We will then show the result of the API call.

Review the Result

Finding your calls or results later

If you can't find your call or result, you can always click on the All Results option in the navigation menu or the API Calls option which will show you a list of all the calls you have defined.
