I am bit confused by this.

Looking at the activity page, I couldn’t tell which account or which key is in use. I mean, if I were to pull one of the keys in activity page and look it in the Keys page, it returns with:

Key doesn’t seem to exist! Using defaults…

So I am forced to tag each key and then do a search in the Activity page to determine each key is usage. A bit of a hack, though and it apparently it doesn’t include the trends prior to the key being tagged.

Is there an easier way to do this?

If you have hashed keys enabled you will need to use the raw representation of the key to see any details of a key, in hashed mode keys are encrypted and nobody can access them except via their original representation.
If you are using the portal, the hashed representation of a users key is stored alongside their profile - if you click it it should show you the analytics for that user. This is one way of associating a user to a key.
The other way is to keep copies of the raw keys when they are created - but that’s up to the integrator as it breaks the security model.
The portal also exposes two secure key features where you can update and delete a hashed key for a users profile (e.g to bounce the user or to upgrade their key policy)
If you disable the hashed mode (setting in both Tyk.conf and tyk_analytics.conf) then you will always see the raw key.
Hope that makes sense :slight_smile:
