Offloading analytics to third-party systems

The event data that is generated and collected in your API Connect on-premises deployment can optionally be forwarded to external third-party systems for storage and analysis.

About this task

API Connect supports the offload of API analytics data to the following third-party systems: HTTP, Elasticsearch, Apache Kafka, and Syslog. You can configure a custom certificate for connecting to the third-party target, enable a message queue to ensure no data is lost during outages, and define filters to refine data that will be stored.

You typically configure data offloading while deploying the Analytics subsystem. For information about offloading options, see the appropriate topic for your environment:
