Add and report events

Add and report events

In addition to reporting the sequence of events leading up to an app crash, Splunk MINT can report events that are not associated with a crash. For example, if your application asks users to make a selection, you can report the user's selection. You can also include the log level with the event: Verbose, Debug, Info, Warning, or Error. This extra data is included in all event actions except for pings and gnips.

  • To report an event, use the logEvent(eventName) method as follows:
  • Mint.logEvent("Button1 pressed");
    
  • To report an event with the log level, use the logEvent(eventName, logLevel) method as follows:
  • Mint.logEvent("Button1 pressed", MintLogLevel.Info);
    

Add as many events as you like to track virtually any user activity on your app. To view the event data, see the Events dashboard in Splunk MINT Management Console.

Add custom data to events

You can add extra custom data to specific events as a data map or as a key-value pair. Custom data can only be viewed using the Splunk MINT App.

  • To add custom data to a specific event as a data map, use the logEvent(eventName, logLevel, customData) method as follows:
  • HashMap<String, Object> mydata = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    mydata.put("hotel", "Bob's B&B");
    mydata.put("member", "Elite");
    Mint.logEvent("Button1 pressed", MintLogLevel.Info, mydata);
    
  • To add custom data to a specific event as a key-value pair, use the logEvent(eventName, logLevel, keyName, keyValue) method as follows:
  • Mint.logEvent("Button1 pressed", MintLogLevel.Info, "hotel", "Bob's B&B");
    

View custom data

To view custom data for events, open the Splunk MINT App and run a search. For example, the following search shows the events that contain custom data for "hotel":

index=mint event_name=* extraData.hotel=* | table event_name, extraData.hotel

For more about running searches in MINT, see Searches in the Splunk MINT App User Guide.
