A Spring Boot starter for publishing api statistics.


This Spring Boot starter can be used to POST API usage statistics to a publishing target (url) on a configurable interval. The body of the request will be a JSON array of statistics (see schema below), and a security token can be applied to ensure that only authorized clients have access.


Add this dependency to your pom.xml:


Annotate your Spring Boot main class:

public class MySpringBootApp {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		SpringApplication.run(MySpringBootApp.class, args);

Configurable Properties: api.statistics.name - The name under which to group the published statistics api.statistics.pattern-match: A regex expression to filter API's in/out api.statistics.publish-url: The url to POST the statistics to api.statistics.token: A security token to prevent unwanted clients from POSTing stats to the publish-url

Example Configuration(s):

(i.e. application.yml)

    name: apigateway
    pattern-match: /api/.*
    publish-url: http://beta.grokola.com/sherpa/api/stats/308
    token: 9x019749-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-38090a0ea9g9
