What is `Logged In` in `API requests`?

Hi!

My new brand installed Discourse site has only 3 users registered.

In Dashboard>API Requests> Logged In it shows up 213 for Today.

What does this number mean? I know for sure there max 2 users logged in.

That’s a pretty reasonable number. That means that one (or both) of you did a lot of browsing around. Basically each click + each 20-post chunk of a topic counts as 1 in there.

I see.
So it counts clicks as logins…

No, no. The whole table is counting clicks. That’s just the “logged in users” bucket, as opposed to the “anonymous” and “crawlers” buckets.

Reminder I want to change this to page views now that we have confidence in the numbers.

Ok this is done, the copy was changed to Pageviews from API Requests now that we’ve had a fair bit of time to verify these numbers and feel confident about them.
