Identity Cloud analytics dashboard

Overview

Identity Cloud analytics dashboard provides a comprehensive snapshot of your Identity Cloud system usage. You can use the dashboard to gain valuable insights on your tenants:

Analytics Dashboard

Monitor the number of users and engagements

At the top of the Identity Cloud analytics dashboard, there is a summary of total number of users, applications, and organizations in your realm. These realm usage totals are summarized as follows:

  • Total Users. Displays the total count of active and inactive users in this realm.

  • Applications. Displays the total number of current applications in this realm.

  • Organizations. Displays the total number of organizations in this realm.

Analytics Dashboard Summary page

Below the realm usage totals, Identity Cloud analytics dashboard displays three trendline charts: user engagements, total users, and new users. These trendline charts are updated every two to three hours and are summarized as follows:

  • User Engagement. Displays the trendline of the number of user engagements within a given time period; by default, the last 30 days. A user engagement is counted when a user is involved in an identity operation within the given time period. An identity operation can be any of the following:

    • Sign-in/authentication

    • Token refresh (for example, token issuance, validation, and refresh)

    • Password creation or change

      A user who has multiple user engagements within a given time period is counted once.
  • Total Users Trend. Displays the trendline for total users (active and inactive) during the time period in this realm.

    The total users trend number may differ from the Total Users number at the top of the page as the data depends on the selected time period and the update frequency. For example, new users who have been added to the system within the last hour may not appear yet on the page.
  • Sign Ups. Displays the trendline for new user sign-ups during the time period in this realm.

Filter timelines

Each chart displays the usage numbers for the current time period, expressed as solid lines; the dotted lines display the numbers for the previous time period. For example, if the time period is Last 30 days, the solid line displays the numbers over the last 30 days from today’s date; the dotted line displays the previous 30-day numbers.

To compare the numbers for a specific date, hover over a point on either line to display the numbers for the current and the previous time periods.

Analytics Dashboard Trends page

By default, the Identity Cloud analytics dashboard displays the number of engagements, total users, and new user sign-ups for a 30-day period, you can filter the output by changing the time period.

Monitor journeys

You can refer to a chart on the number of successful and failed journey outcomes within your realm on the Identity Cloud analytics dashboard. Scroll down the Identity Cloud analytics dashboard page to refer to the Journeys graph.

By default, the Identity Cloud analytics dashboard displays the aggregation of all successful and failed journeys on the Identity Cloud. These aggregations express four different types of information:

  • Blue lines indicate successful journey outcomes.

  • Red lines indicate failed journey outcomes.

  • Solid lines indicate the journey outcomes that occurred within the current selected time period.

  • Dotted lines indicate the journey outcomes in the previous time period.

Analytics Dashboard Journeys section

The Identity Cloud analytics dashboard also lets you filter the chart by journey type. The available journeys are listed on the Identity Cloud Journeys page and includes any custom journeys that you may have configured. For example:

  • EvaluateRisk

  • ForgottenUsername

  • Login (default)

  • PasswordGrant

  • ProgressiveProfile

  • Registration

  • ResetPassword

  • Sample Tree

  • UpdatePassword

The categories are:

  • Authentication

  • Password Reset

  • Progressive Profile

  • Registration

  • Username Reset

The journeys and categories options come from any tag that you have selected.

Filter journeys

  1. On the Journeys chart, click All journeys.

  2. On the Filter Journeys dialog box, select one or more journeys on the drop-down list to include in your chart.

  3. Click Apply to update your journeys chart. The changes appear immediately.

Access journey pass/fail details

The Journeys chart also lets you drill down at specific points on a trendline to access its details, or metric breakdown. Red lines indicate failed journeys. Blue lines indicate successful journeys.

For example, you can use the Metric Breakdown page to review the journeys for the selected date, sorted by a ranking of percentage failures (default). The percentage is calculated for each journey as the total outcomes passed or failed, and then sorted in descending order from the highest failed journey by percentage to the lowest failed journey by percentage.

Analytics Dashboard Metric Breakdown page sorted by percentage success or failures

The Metric Breakdown page also lets you sort the journeys by number ranking. Number indicates the actual number of successful or failed outcomes for each journey.

The following table provides an example of how the analytics dashboard ranks by percentage and by number:

Top Five Journeys by Outcome and Top Five Journeys by Usage widgets

The Identity Cloud analytics dashboard displays two additional widgets providing trendlines into your journeys: Top Five Journeys by Outcome and Top Five Journeys by Usage. The Top Five Journeys by Outcome widget displays the top five journeys ranked by percentage failed or successful. The default selection is Fail. You can change the selection to Success to display top five successful journeys.

The Top Five Journeys by Usage widget displays the top five most or least used journeys. By default, the most used journeys are selected. Each bar chart provides the percentage usage of the journey in the given time period based on the outcomes only. For each journey, the calculation is based on the total number of outcomes for the journey divided by the total number of all journey outcomes in the time period.

The widgets only display the journey outcomes for the selected time period. The x-axis denotes the percentage outcomes in the journey.

Analytics Dashboard Top Five Journeys by Outcome and Top Five Journeys by Usage Widgets
