In the IT world, one of the most challenging items is Monitoring. A 5-minute read out article shows you how to monitor or trace the API call in Kibana (https://www.elastic.co/kibana).

Once you log in to Kibana, there are 5 important sections:


1. Filter: Enter your API URI  ex:  /rest/getstock


2. Filter by Time: Filter search to a particular time or date range.


3. Add Filter


4. Different API Fields are useful for searching purposes.

  • Step 1: Select the correct time on the top right.
  • Step 2                                                                                                                                : Left pan select the "Http_status_code" and press "Search Icon". It will automatically be added to the Add Filter.
