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.
To report an event:
- Use the logEvent method.
You can also include the log level with the event. Use one of the following enumeration values for the LogLevelStatus parameter:
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.
[[Mint sharedInstance] logEventWithName:@"EventName"];
Add custom data to events
You can add extra custom data to specific events as a list or as a key-value pair. Custom data can only be viewed using the Splunk MINT App.
// Objective-C NSString *eventname = @"EventName"; [[Mint sharedInstance] logEventWithName:eventname logLevel:DebugLogLevel]; [[Mint sharedInstance] logEventWithName:eventname logLevel:InfoLogLevel extraDataKey:@"key" extraDataValue:@"value"]; MintLimitedExtraData *limitedExtraData = [[MintLimitedExtraData alloc] init]; [limitedExtraData setValue:@"value" forKey:@"key"]; [[Mint sharedInstance] logEventWithName:eventname logLevel:WarningLogLevel extraData:limitedExtraData];
// Swift let eventName = "EventName" Mint.sharedInstance().logEventWithName(eventName, logLevel: DebugLogLevel) Mint.sharedInstance().logEventWithName(eventName, logLevel: InfoLogLevel, extraDataKey: "key", extraDataValue: "value") let limitedExtraData = MintLimitedExtraData() limitedExtraData.setValue("value1", forKey: "key1") Mint.sharedInstance().logEventWithName(eventName, logLevel: WarningLogLevel, extraData: limitedExtraData)
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.
