  8. Select a time zone. GraphOS sends the report daily at 9 AM in the selected time zone.

Configure a new Slack channel

To set up Slack notifications, you must:

  1. Create an incoming webhook in Slack.
  2. Provide that webhook's URL to .

1. Create an incoming Slack hook

To create an incoming Slack hook:

  1. From the Incoming Hooks page of the Slack App Directory, sign in and click Add to Slack.
  2. Select the Slack channel that should receive notifications. Then, click Add Incoming WebHooks integration.
  3. Copy the Webhook URL to use in the next step. It should have a format like

You can repeat this process to create webhook URLs for different Slack channels.

2. Provide the Slack hook to Studio

  1. In GraphOS Studio, specify a name for this notification channel in the Channel Name .

    • This name must be unique among your 's notification channels.
    • This name doesn't have to match the name of the Slack channel, but it's recommended for simplicity.
  2. In the Slack Webhook URL field, paste the webhook URL you obtained in Create an incoming Slack hook.

  3. Click Next.

  4. After you finish setup, check that your Slack channel gets a confirmation from Studio.

To configure multiple Slack channels, repeat this process. Use a different webhook URL for each channel.

Acting on report data

The daily report provides an actionable summary of what's happened in your API over the last 24 hours. Here's how you can use it to identify issues:

  • The request rate shows how many queries hit your server each minute. It also shows the most popular . If you see a significant dip in this value, it might mean that queries can't reach your server or that a particular client is down.
  • An 's p95 service time indicates that 95% of that operation's executions complete faster than the reported value. You can use this to identify that your API is overloaded and users are seeing long loading delays or to find out which queries take the longest to run. This metric is often connected to UI performance, so a 500 ms probably means some part of your UI takes that long to display.
  • The error percentage shows how many of your requests produce an error. It also shows a list of the operations with the highest error percentage. Spikes in errors might be the result of an underlying backend malfunction.

For more about these metrics, refer to the operation metrics page.
