Report user-specific data

Report data

With Splunk MINT, you can closely track the experience of any given user, for example to investigate a complaint. First, provide a user identifier such as an ID number from a database, an email address, a push ID, or a username. (However, please do not transmit any personally-identifiable or sensitive data into Splunk MINT.) Then in the Splunk MINT Management Console dashboard, you can search for errors that affect a particular user ID and examine crash data associated with her or her usage of your app. This feature is useful for apps with a high average revenue per user (ARPU), for apps that are deployed in a mobile device management (MDM) environment, and during quality-assurance testing.

  • Use the setUserIdentifier(userIdentifier) method to set a user identifier as follows:
  • Mint.setUserIdentifier("12345");
    Mint.setUserIdentifier("someone@domain.com");
    

Then, to search errors for a specific user name or ID, go to the Errors dashboard in Splunk MINT Management Console, then enter the user name or ID under Search by username in the list of filters.

Example code

public MyActivity extends Activity {
    private void onSuccessfullLogin() {
        String userIdentifier = getUserID();
        Mint.setUserIdentifier(userIdentifier);
    }
}

Do not report data

To prevent MINT from saving or sending any data for a user, use the Mint.setUserOptOut() method set to true before calling initAndStartSession.

public class MyActivity extends Activity {


    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); 
        Mint.setUserOptOut(true);
        Mint.initAndStartSession("apikey"); 
    }
}

For more about the data fields that are collected by MINT, see About Splunk MINT data collection in the Splunk MINT Overview manual.
