Insights Hub Services - Index

In this section you will find all currently published services that can be used. This section will be updated regularly as we continuously enrich our ecosystem. Refer to the concepts section for information on the API Versioning and the API Lifecycle in Insights Hub.

Insights Hub APIs are either HTTP-based or messaging-based. HTTP-based APIs come with an OpenAPI specification, describing the HTTP operations offered by a service to be called by clients. Messaging-based APIs come with an AsyncAPI specification, describing the topics and messages offered by a service to either subscribe to or publish to by a client.

The following tables list all available Insights Hub services with a description and the available API versions in the respective regions. By default, API versions are HTTP-based APIs. In case an AsyncAPI is provided the version is annotated accordingly.


Do not set the ContentType header of GET requests to application/json if the request body is empty. Many firewalls block this as it is identified as invalid request.


Insights Hub will adhere to the API request URL validations in the upcoming release. This is a step to make the environment more secure. The API request URLs will be validated based on the use of trailing slash characters in requests pointing to dedicated resources. Please refer to the list below which contains examples of incorrect URLs and correct URLs. This will be applicable to all APIs in Insights Hub.
