This module contains middleware to ensure best practices of DRF and other endpoints..
Adds various request related metrics.
- Possible metrics include:
- request_auth_type: Example values include: no-user, unauthenticated,
- jwt, bearer, other-token-type, or session-or-unknown
request_client_name: The client name from edx-rest-api-client calls. request_referer request_user_agent: The user agent string from the request header. request_user_id: The user id of the request user.
This middleware is dependent on the RequestCacheMiddleware. You must include this middleware later. For example:
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( 'edx_django_utils.cache.middleware.RequestCacheMiddleware', 'edx_rest_framework_extensions.middleware.RequestMetricsMiddleware', )
This middleware should also appear after any authentication middleware.
Add metrics for various details of the request.
