Changes to API Discovery: Unused Endpoints now easier to identify
We would like to announce a change in our Wallarm API Discovery module. Previously, we used the term "Removed endpoint" to indicate that an endpoint was excluded from the API inventory because there were no more requests for it. For each endpoint, the date it was excluded from the model was calculated based on statistics showing how often the endpoint was requested.
Going forward, we will be using the term "Unused endpoint" instead of "Removed endpoint" to better reflect the status of these endpoints. An unused endpoint will now be defined as an endpoint that has not been requested in the last 7 days.
Calculating a time interval for each endpoint based on statistics could be non-obvious and difficult to analyze. By simply setting a fixed time period of 7 days, we are simplifying the process and providing a clear and consistent standard for identifying unused endpoints.
We believe that this change will improve the clarity and usefulness of our API Discovery module, making it easier for you to manage your APIs and ensure their security.
You can find more detailed information on this integration in our documentation.
