Mobile events

For some New Relic Mobile subscriptions, you can use New Relic Insights to query and analyze Mobile events and their associated attributes. Mobile events and attributes are also used for some Mobile UI pages, such as Crash analysis.

Default mobile events

The following table describes the standard Mobile events.

The collection of New Relic Mobile events requires Mobile agent version 5.0.0 or higher.

Use the New Relic event data dictionary to view the attributes for the default Mobile events by selecting an event name:

Event Description
Mobile Mobile events were once the only event type, but now there are several specialized event types. Recommendation: Upgrade to the most recent New Relic Mobile agent version to take full advantage of the new event types.
MobileBreadcrumb There is no attribute list for this event type because it is a custom event; attributes will include the session attributes and any custom attributes that you add.
MobileCrash This event type is used for application crashes.
MobileHandledException This event type is used for non-fatal exceptions reported to New Relic using the recordHandledException API call for Android or iOS. The exceptions will be visible in Insights and on the Handled exceptions page of the Mobile UI, including stack traces. To use this event type, you must have Mobile agent version 5.15 or higher for Android or iOS.
MobileRequest

This event type is used for HTTP/network activity. To use this event type, you must have Mobile agent version 5.14.0 or higher for Android or iOS.

New Relic MobileRequest data is enabled by default for:

For earlier versions, starting with Android version 5.14.0 or iOS version 5.14.0, you must enable the feature. Upgrade to the latest Android or iOS version, or enable the NetworkRequests feature flag by using the Android or iOS configuration settings.

MobileRequestError This event type is used for HTTP errors or network failures. For best results, use New Relic Mobile agent 5.14.0 or higher for Android or iOS. With lower agent versions, some attributes may be missing, and you will not have access to MobileRequest events.
MobileSession This event captures session-related attributes. This is the source of the general session data used by the other New Relic Mobile events.
Custom events There is no attribute list for this event type because it is a custom event; attributes will include the session attributes and any custom attributes that you add.
