Splunk MINT SDK for iOS (Legacy)

Splunk MINT SDK for iOS 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.

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.

  • Set the userIdentifier property to a user identifier before calling the initAndStartSessionWithAPIKey: method as follows:
  • // Objective-C
    [[Mint sharedInstance] setUserIdentifier:@"MyUserIdentifier"];
    [[Mint sharedInstance] initAndStartSessionWithAPIKey:@"API_KEY"];
    // Swift 
    Mint.sharedInstance().userIdentifier = "MyUserIdentifier"

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.

Do not report data

To prevent MINT from saving or sending any data for a user, use the setUserOptOut method set to YES or true before calling the initAndStartSessionWithAPIKey method.

// Objective-C

[[Mint sharedInstance] setUserOptOut:YES];
// Swift 

Mint.sharedInstance().setUserOptOut = true
