The admin interface consists of the Service Panel on the left side and a report of the connected service on the right. The report of the service status has the following information:

  1. Service Name

    The service name used to generate the contents of the page.

  2. Records

    Count of the number of People and Family records in the service.

  3. Server

    Shows the server usage with total number of requests made and how many of those requests resulted in errors.

  4. API

    Break down of server errors and successful requests by API, path, and Type.

Note: The usage request to return the usage data will not be included in the API count until the next usage request. Some requests can be errors that are not related to any API (unsupported paths, access restrictions).
