Why does the search count in the *Searches Last Week* chart not increase when searching via graphql-searchAcrossEntities in Datahub version 0.12.0?

Original Slack Thread

Hi team, in the analytics ui page, I wonder why the searching count showed in the Searches Last Week chart dosen’t increase while I search datasets via graphql-searchAcrossEntities by postman? Only searching via ui, the count will increase. I do use the same graphql api with the ui.
Datahub version: 0.12.0

Hey there! :wave: Make sure your message includes the following information if relevant, so we can help more effectively!

  1. Which DataHub version are you using? (e.g. 0.12.0)
  2. Please post any relevant error logs on the thread!

Charts in the analytics page are built with tracking events exclusively emitted by the UI, not by the graphql layer.
Alternatively, backend services dispatch monitoring events that you may display with eg grafana.
