- API Explorer – it includes a powerful API Explorer that allows you to query your configured application dynamically without writing code! Super handy for debugging and exploring the brainCloud API
- Monitoring Tool – the monitoring features provide easy debugging of global and user data – and are also very useful for support your app once it goes live.
