Overview

Enterprise

The Usage API is a free REST API that provides programmatic access and visibility into activity consumption across products for your enterprise account. It is the most important and best tool for helping to monitor and manage usage across the different APIs under your account.

Important Disclaimer:

The usage counts returned from the Usage API may not match those on a billing invoice due to trials and other billing adjustments. All numbers are based on deduped activities consumed within a given day (in UTC).

Features

  • Programmatically retrieving usage data that is available in the console.gnip.com UI
  • Stream level usage data - provides usage data at the stream level (e.g., dev and prod) in addition to the product level
  • Granular and descriptive data - search "requests" are broken out by Full-Archive and 30-Day Search products 
  • Historical PowerTrack “days” and “jobs” 

Supported APIs

Below is a list of the APIs currently supported by the Usage API:

  • PowerTrack API enterprise
  • 30-Day Search API enterprise
  • Full-Archive Search API enterprise
  • Historical PowerTrack enterprise


Limitations

  • The Usage API allows you to access usage data since May 1, 2018.  After July 1, 2019 Usage API allows you to access usage data for the trailing 13 calendar months
  • You have the ability to access usage data in three month intervals defined with a fromDate and toDate
