Enabling analytics for Identity Server
To enable publishing statistics for WSO2 Identity Server in WSO2 Analytics - IS, you need to enable the

DASAuthnDataPublisherImpl property should be set to
true in the
<IS_HOME>/repository/conf/identity/Identity.xml file as shown below.
Setting up the DAS configuration
Setting up the DAS configuration involves providing the information required by WSO2 IS to publish data to the DAS server in order to analyze the data using the Analytics Dashboard. Follow the procedure below to set up the DAS configuration.
In WSO2 IS, there is a Data publisher configuration which provides necessary details about the destination/target DAS Server. It is located at <IS_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/eventpublishers/AuthenticationDataPublisher.xml . Below is the sample configuration. Here, please make sure to point to the correct DAS Thrift port (If you are running DAS by offset 1 then DAS Thrift port is 7612).
The above event publisher properties are described below.
