API Request Viewer


The API Dashboard is the Speakeasy platform homepage and your aggregated view of all the APIs currently being managed by Speakeasy. Each row represents an API, which is a top level resource (e.g. Orders, Transactions, Users etc.) grouping the individual endpoints (which can have many methods and operations) that you are serving to your customers. The Dashboard gives you an overview of the the aggregated number of request, and error rate for the resources endpoints.

From the API dashboard, you are able to navigate to endpoint-specific stats, request logs, and other features.

How can you use the API Dashboard?

  • Drill down to a specific endpoint's request success and error trends
  • Replay requests directly in the platform or export as a curl, or postman collection

View Request Logs

To start capturing your API request and responses in the Request Viewer make sure to integrate the appropriate Speakeasy SDK into your API server. Once your API is streaming API request and response to Speakeasy they will show up in the Request Viewer.


Once API Request and Response data is streaming in they'll be available under the Requests tab on the left nav. This will take you to the Request Viewer home page. The Request viewer will show new requests as they come in real time. By default 30 days of historical data is accessible on demand.


Click on a request to see the complete Request Body and headers and Responses for each Request. Export requests by their OpenAPI schema or into a Postman Collection.


You can also use our easy point and click filters to drill down by Customer, Labels, Request Api Endpoint, Status and more. Save these filters for future use.

Replay Requests

Clicking on the Replay Request button will open a Dialog where you can modify the details of the request you want to replay.


From the Replay Request Dialog you can modify the request before replaying it in various ways:

  • Modify the URL of the request, either redirecting it to a new server, or correcting a URL that was captured incorrectly due to proxying or other reasons or just sending it to another endpoint.
  • Modify/Add or Remove any Query Parameters to the request.
  • Modify/Add or Remove any Headers to the request.
  • Modify/Add or Remove a Request body on the request.




Copy as CURL

In the Request Replay dialog there is also a Button to Copy as CURL that will allow you to copy a CURL command with the defined parameters for your request and run this from your favorite Posix terminal.


Download Postman Collection

Clicking on the Download Postman Collection option in the context menu will download a Postman Collection .json file that you can import into your Postman workspace to send requests from Postman to replay your request.
