API Tokens


The platform provides the API Tokens to be able to show the data on the new Analytics section. You need an API Token to communicate and security the platform with the Analytics Back-end.

Every platform entity must have al least one API token. By default, an API Token is created automatically when you create a new entity. If your entity haven't got an API Token, you always can a new API Token. In the following sections, you can learn how do it.

You should know that every platform entity (Resellers or Customers) has a Analytics data tier related on the data that you can watch in the Analytics section. The Edge Service Platform aka ESP has two differents data tiers. Depending on your Analytics data tier, you have access to differents metrics. With an Analytics data tier higher you will watch more metrics.

  1. Lite - Provides a basic set of charts from the Edge Analytics
  2. Advanced - Access an extensive set of charts from the Edge Analytics

By default, all the entities in ESP have the Lite tier, if you wish to have a higher tier, please contact with support. The Analytics data tier of every entity is specified in the creation process and can be edited in the Edit form after the creation. As a Reseller, you only can set the higher tier specified for your entity. You never could specify for your customers an Advanced tier if you only have a Lite tier.
