APImetrics, the leading API monitoring and governance platform, is proud to announce the addition of a new user role called “Analyst.”
This new role is designed to provide users with the necessary permissions to undertake triage activities, investigate issues, and debug them quickly without granting full edit rights to monitoring configurations.
With the Analyst role, teams can better optimize their workflow and maintain strict access control to their configurations.
The Need for a Dedicated Analyst Role
In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, APIs play a critical role in connecting systems and powering applications. Ensuring the stability and performance of these APIs has become increasingly important, with many organizations relying on dedicated teams to monitor, test, and troubleshoot any issues that arise.
Traditionally, APImetrics has offered an editor user role that grants users complete access to monitoring configurations. While this approach allows for flexibility, it can also lead to potential security risks, as users with edit rights may accidentally or intentionally modify configurations that could impact the entire system.
The introduction of the Analyst role addresses this concern by providing a more refined set of permissions that enable users to access the data they need to perform their duties without granting them full edit rights.
Empowering Triage Activities
The Analyst role is specifically designed to empower users who need to perform triage activities. With this role, users can access and analyze data, and debug issues rapidly to ensure that API performance remains at its peak.
Some of the key features and permissions of the Analyst role include:
Access to Monitoring Data:
Analysts will have full access to all monitoring data, including logs, performance metrics, and results. This will enable them to identify potential issues and trends quickly.
Reporting and Analytics:
Analysts will have access to comprehensive reporting and analytics tools, allowing them to generate custom reports and gain insights into API performance and issues.
Issue Tracking and Collaboration:
With the Analyst role, users can track issues and collaborate with other team members to find solutions and implement fixes.
The Analyst role has been carefully designed to maintain strict access control over monitoring configurations.
While Analysts will have access to the data they need to perform their duties, they will not have the ability to edit or modify configurations. This ensures that only authorized personnel can make changes to the monitoring setup, reducing the risk of accidental or malicious modifications.
The addition of the Analyst role in APImetrics is a significant step forward in providing a more tailored user experience that caters to the needs of different team members. By empowering users to perform triage activities without compromising configuration security, organizations can streamline their workflows and ensure that their APIs remain stable and performant.
