  1. Setup a Google Analytics account if not subscribed already and receive a Tracking ID, which is of the format "UA-XXXXXXXX-X". A Tracking ID is issued at the time an account is created with Google Analytics.
  2. Log in to the API Manager management console (https://localhost:9443/carbon) using admin/admin credentials and go to Main -> Resources -> Browse menu.
  3. Navigate to /_system/governance/apimgt/statistics/ga-config.xml file.

  4. Change the <Enabled> element to true, set your tracking ID in <TrackingID> element and Save.

  5. If you want to enable tracking for tenants, log in to the management console with a tenant's credentials, click Source View, and then add the following parameter to the org.wso2.carbon.mediation.registry.WSO2Registry registry definition near the top (repeat this step for each tenant):
    <parameter name="cachableDuration">15000</parameter>

  6. API Manager is now integrated with Google Analytics. A user who has subscribed to a published API through the API Store should see an icon as Real-Time after logging into their Google Analytics account. Click on this icon and select Overview.
  7. Invoke the above API using the embedded WSO2 REST Client (or any third-part rest client such as cURL).

  8. This is one invocation of the API. Accordingly, Google Analytics graphs and statistics will be displayed at runtime. This example displays the PageViews per second graph and 1 user as active.

    Report statistics

    Google analytics reporting statistics take more than 24 hours from the time of invocation to populate. Shown below is a sample Dashboard with populated statistics.

    There are widgets with statistics related to Audience, Traffic, Page Content, Visit Duration etc. You can add any widget of your preference to dashboard.
