You can find option enable_explorer into config/infyom/routes_explorer.php and simply make it false while in production environment directly or via your .env file.

Track API calls count

By the time, our project grows with lots of routes and api endpoints. And it's really difficult to figure out which routes are most used or used or not used at all.

In some cases, we also want to know, which routes are frequently called and we want to cache those data. Other lots of real life practical problems and use cases can be there with our routes.

To start tracking api calls, you need to perform following steps:

Publish Migration

Run the following command to publish migration,

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=migrations

It will publish migration file into database/migrations.

Migrate database

Migrate your database by,

php artisan migrate

It will create one new table in database called api_calls_count.

Change Configuration file

Change config file config/infyom/routes_explorer.php & Make collections.api_calls_count => true.

That's all. Checkout your routes and one new column count will be added into datatable.
