Oxylabs dashboard has plenty to offer: you can view your usage statistics, set usage limits, manage subscription plans, and much more. Take a look at the steps below to understand how to carry out specific actions in the dashboard.
See usage statistics
You can find your API usage statistics by going to My Products, then selecting your acquired API, and viewing the Statistics tab:
Set usage limits
You can create API usage limits for specific users by navigating to Usage limits → Create rule. A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to select the product, choose the API user, select the period (Daily, Monthly, or Lifetime), and enter the maximum number of requests:
Check out this visual overview of how you can set usage limits.
The process is identical for both proxies and Scraper APIs:
Add more results
You can quickly top-up your Scraper API traffic (number of requests) in the dashboard by selecting the Overview tab, choosing your acquired API, and clicking Add more results:
After that, you’ll see a pop-up window where you can purchase additional results for the current billing period:

Change API user password
In case you want to change the password of your API user, you can do so by selecting your purchased API from the dropdown menu, navigating to Users, and then clicking the edit icon:
A pop-up window will show up, allowing you to change the current password:
Once you confirm the password change, your API user will require a new password for authentication.
Manage your subscription
You can change your subscription plan at any time. Select My account from the menu at the bottom or click the Manage subscriptions button at the top-right corner and navigate to Change plan:
Update payment details
If you intend to change your payment method, go to Manage subscription on your account page as shown below:
You’ll be redirected to a new page where you can change your payment option by clicking the edit button:
If you want to cancel your subscription, go to Manage subscription on your account page as shown previously and click Cancel plan:
Test Scraper APIs in the API Playground
Oxylabs dashboard also has Scraper APIs Playground, where you can test out the functionality of our SERP Scraper API, E-Commerce Scraper API, and Web Scraper API. It’s accessible through the dashboard menu:
The process of testing out our Scraper APIs is easy:
First, enter a search query or the target URL (depending on your selected source). You can submit a request without customization.
When you're done customizing your request, submit it, and you'll see the results on the right. If needed, you can export the request/response code in HTML or JSON and the language of your choice. By adding your credentials to the request code, you can use it for further scraping operations.
