Built-in dashboards

  • Overview: Overview of CloudWatch data of the number of API calls, average latency and error responses for all API resources.
  • API Resource: CloudWatch data of the number of API calls, average latency, error responses and cache hit/miss filtered for individual API resources.


To access this integration, connect to CloudWatch.

Note that detailed CloudWatch metrics must be enabled for your API stage in AWS. To do this, go to the Amazon API Gateway console,
click the name of your API, and then click Stages. Click on your stage. Click Logs/Tracing, specify Enable Detailed CloudWatch Metrics, and then click Save Changes.

Also, if not already added, add an ARN of an IAM role that has write access to CloudWatch logs in the Settings section of the Amazon API Gateway console.
