API Monitoring & Testing: Locations

Locations allow you to monitor your APIs from multiple sources around the globe or from an agent running within your infrastructure. When enabled for a test environment or shared environment, each test run using that environment's configured locations (scheduled or otherwise) will be initiated from all of the selected locations simultaneously.


Selecting Locations

From any test's environment editor, select the 'Locations' link to pick which regions and agents to run your tests from when using the selected environment. You can also configure locations using shared environment locations.
