Integrate WebView monitoring

WebView monitoring allows the MINT SDKs to access hybrid (non-native) web pages and gain visibility into their functions.

Integrate WebView monitoring

Use one of the following ways to integrate WebView monitoring into your application to view Web pages:

  • Use MintWebView
  • This option is the easiest way to integrate WebView monitoring into your application.

    1. In the XML file that contains your WebView, replace <WebView/> with <com.splunk.mint.MintWebView.
    2. In your activity, add the following code:
    3. MintWebView webView = (MintWebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
  • Extend MintWebView
  • This option lets you use your own instance of WebView.

    webView = (MintWebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
    MintJavascript mintJavascript = new MintJavascript(this, webView);
    webView.addJavascriptInterface(mintJavascript, "mintBridge");
    webView.setWebViewClient(new MintWebViewClient());
  • Use your own WebView client
  • To use your own WebViewClient, replace the last line of the previous example with the following code:

    webView.addJavascriptInterface(mintJavascript, "mintBridge");
    webView.setWebViewClient(new MintWebViewClient());
    webView.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient() {
        public void onPageStarted(WebView view, String url, Bitmap favicon) {
            super.onPageStarted(view, url, favicon);

Hybrid API calls

You can use the following hybrid API calls.

Mint.addExtraData('key', 'value')
Mint.logEvent('event name', {'key': 'value'})
Mint.logView('view name', {'key': 'value'} )
Mint.setLocation('myLatitude', 'myLongitude', 'myLocationTimestamp')
Mint.transactionCancel('transaction id', 'reason for cancel', {'key': 'value'})
Mint.transactionStart('transaction name', {'key': 'value'})
Mint.transactionStop('transaction id', {'key': 'value'})
