# Failure time averages

This is an aggregate average of failure times, which gives you insight into the overall trend of your project.

Given an id for a project, you can query average cycle times like so:

curl -H "X-API-Key: <your token goes here>" \
fetch('https://api.accidentalquality.com/api/avg_failure_times/<project_id>', {
  method: "GET",
  headers: {"Content-type": "application/json;charset=UTF-8", "X-API-Key": "<your-token-goes-here>"}
.then(response => response.json()) 
.then(json => console.log(json)) 
.catch(err => console.log(err));

The data returned is in json format and structured as follows:

  • unit (string) - Unit of the data displayed in the data array
  • data (array)
    • x string - Date for the datapoint in format yyyy-mm-dd
    • y float - Value for the cycle time for the datapoint in seconds


        "data": [
                "x": "1990-01-01",
                "y": 123.0
                "x": "1990-01-01",
                "y": 321.0

Note that the structure of data is identical to cycle time averages and repair time averages, and very similar to cycle times, repair times and failure times.

This should allow reuse of code between the API endpoints (be aware of the difference between float and integers!) 😉
