Access API monitoring

You can access API Monitoring using the UI and API, as described below. To access API Monitoring, your Edge user must be assigned to one of the roles described below in API Monitoring roles.

API Monitoring roles

All Edge users must be assigned to a role, where the user's role determines the actions that the user is allowed to perform in Edge. Edge organizations come with built-in roles that predefine permissions based on different user types. Alternatively, you can assign a user to a custom role that you define.

Several predefined roles allow the user access to API monitoring features, as shown in the following table. Edge also defines two built-in roles, API Monitoring Administrator and API Monitoring User, that define the permissions required to access API monitoring only. The advantage to using these roles is that they restrict the user to being able to use API monitoring, but not to perform other actions such as creating, updating, or deleting API proxies.

Assign users to one of the following roles to access API Monitoring. For information about assigning roles, see Assigning roles.
