As a product leader, there’s no better way to show the value of your API platform then by graphically displaying key metics. If you’re already working with Tableau, it’s easy to extract key charts, or workspaces, from Moesif’s dashboards and insert them into your visualization platform.
The information from Moesif will be inserted into Tableau as a web page object. Web page objects are fully-functional web browser windows based on Microsoft’s IE and, as such, all buttons, links and navigation features within the window will operate just as a regular browser.
This guide will take you through the steps required to set up and display Moesif workspaces within your Tableau dashboard: it’s as easy as 1-2-3.
Step 1. Moesif’s Workspace Public Link
Within Moesif’s API Analytics Platform create a workspace of a metric you want to track.
Save the workspace as a Public workspace.
We’re going to use the Share Link, as shown below, to embed the workspace directly within Tableau.
Step 2. Tableau’s Web Object
Once you’ve created your Tableau dashboard, you’ll need to insert a new web page object.
Click on the Web Page icon under Objects, as shown below, and drag it to the location on your dashboard where you want to insert the Moesif workspace.
When you release the icon, a pop up appears. Enter the URL from Share Link in Step 1.
The Moesif workspace should appear. Resize the tiles in your Tableau dashboard to show your new metric in its best light.
Step 3. Add More Workspaces
Repeat Steps 1 & 2 and populate your Tableau dashboard with key metrics from Moesif to showcase the value of your API platform.
The example below shows the existing Tableau dashboard of a product manager, with two Moesif workspaces inserted:
- Weekly API usage grouped by company domain
- Newly activated customers
