Splunk MINT SDK for Android (Legacy)

Splunk MINT SDK for Android Developer Guide

Splunk MINT is no longer available for purchase as of January 29, 2021. Customers who have already been paying to ingest and process MINT data in Splunk Enterprise will continue to receive support until December 31, 2021, which is End of Life for all MINT products: App, Web Service (Management Console), SDK and Add-On.

Disable network monitoring

Normally, Splunk MINT monitors all HTTP/HTTPS network calls. You can disable network monitoring entirely. Or, disable monitoring just for specific URLs by adding them to a monitoring deny list to ignore any requests to these URLs. For example, you can add "www.facebook.com" to your deny list to ignore requests to this site.

  • If you use server-side sockets, you should disable network monitoring entirely when using the MINT SDK for Android as a library. (This issue does not apply when using the Gradle plugin for Android.)
  • Currently, there are known compatibility issues with network monitoring and certain external libraries such as OkHttp, resulting in crashes. Splunk is currently working on this issue, but until it is resolved, disable network monitoring entirely if you experience this issue.
  • To disable network monitoring entirely, use the disableNetworkMonitoring() method before the initAndStartSession() or initAndStartSessionHEC() method as follows:
  • Mint.disableNetworkMonitoring();
    Mint.initAndStartSession(this.getApplication(), "YOUR_API_KEY");
  • To add a URL to the network monitoring deny list, use the addURLToBlackList(url) method before the initAndStartSession() or initAndStartSessionHEC() method as follows:
  • Mint.addURLToBlackList("www.facebook.com");
    Mint.initAndStartSession(this.getApplication(), "YOUR_API_KEY");
