View Cloud Search usage reports in the Admin console and the Stats API

What’s changing

Admins can now view Cloud Search usage information via charts in the Admin console and using the Stats API.

Who’s impacted

Admins only

Why it’s important

Previously, admins only had limited visibility into the usage of Cloud Search within their domains. Now, they have greater insight into things like how often applications are being used and whether all the content they need indexed is accessible.

How to get started

Additional details

Specifically, you’ll be able to view Cloud Search data around active users, query volume, and number of searches. Note: these stats will be available immediately through the Stats API. Rollout details for the Admin console can be found below in the Availability section.
