About the refreshed Home page
Last updated 2023-11-15
This information is part of a beta release. For additional details, read our product and feature lifecycle descriptions.
The Home page displays summary information about all services associated with your account. Think of it as a dashboard where you can get quick insights and basic information about your services along with some aggregate, high-level metrics about them. You can use the dashboard to view who's a user on your team and edit their roles or even invite more users to your account. The dashboard also provides links to helpful resources you may need as you navigate your way around the Fastly app.
Be sure you know how to access the web interface controls before learning about each of the pages you'll encounter there.
The Home page appears automatically when users with the appropriate access permissions log in to the Fastly web interface. You can access it by clicking Home next to the stopwatch once you've logged into your account.
The Your services card displays the services associated with your account and defaulting to those you've designated as your favorites. Each service listed includes a clickable link to the configuration details for that service and a summary of key information about it, including the type of service (CDN or Compute), the current requests per second for it, and the most recently activated service version.
You can change the displayed list of services on the card by selecting a different sort order from the menu to the right of the search field. Other filtering options besides the default Favorites include:
- most recently viewed
- most recently activated
- highest number of requests per second
- most recently created
Clicking the Compute services and CDN services links that appear to the right of the card's title will take you to the Compute and Deliver pages respectively where you can view all of the services of that type associated with your account and access the main controls for editing their configuration.
The Regional account stats card displays summarized, basic metrics and a map of parts of the world to help you visualize their source. Clicking More stats to the right of the card title takes you to the Observability page where you can access additional stats details for all your services.
By default, the map and summary stats displayed represent metrics globally around the world. You can select a smaller area of the world by selecting that area from the left most menu immediately below the card title. Likewise, you can select a variety of other stats to display by selecting one from the right most menu immediately below the card title.
