Start an interaction

Syntax

Java

NewRelic.startInteraction(string $interactionName)

Kotlin

NewRelic.startInteraction(actionName: String)

Description

Create an interaction to instrument a method in your Android app code.

To name an interaction that already exists and is already being tracked, see setInteractionName().

Parameters

Parameter

Type

Description

$interactionName

string

Required. The name you want to give to the interaction.

Return values

Returns an interaction ID number which can be used for ending the interaction at a certain point.

Example

Here's an example of starting to track an interaction named RefreshContacts:

Java

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
...
@Override
public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
switch (item.getItemId()) {
case R.id.action_refresh:
NewRelic.startInteraction("RefreshContacts");
……
return true;
default:
return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
}
}
...
}

Kotlin

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {
.....
var client: OkHttpClient = OkHttpClient();
binding.fab.setOnClickListener { view ->
val interActionId = NewRelic.startInteraction("Getting Data From Server")
lifecycleScope.launch(Dispatchers.IO) {
val result = getRequest()
NewRelic.endInteraction(interActionId)
}
}
}
....
}

Syntax

Objective-c

+ (NSString*) startInteractionWithName:(NSString*)interactionName;

Swift

NewRelic.startInteraction(string: "myInteractionName")

Description

This method will start an interaction trace using interactionName as the name. The interaction will record all instrumented methods until a timeout occurs or stopCurrentInteraction is called.

To name an interaction that already exists and is already being tracked, see setInteractionName().

Tip

If you use these methods, the instrumented interactions will not show up on the Interactions page, but they can be still found with a NRQL query, such as:

query SELECT name FROM Mobile SINCE 7 DAYS AGO

Parameters

Parameter

Type

Description

interactionName

string

Required. The name you want to give to the interaction.

Return values

If startInteractionWithName is called, the return value is an interactionIdentifier that must be passed to stopCurrentInteraction . But it's not required to call stopCurrentInteraction after calling start because startInteractionWithName will eventually complete intelligently.

Examples

Objective-C

NSString *identifier = [NewRelic startInteractionWithName: @"myInteractionName"];
[NewRelic stopCurrentInteraction: identifier];

Swift

let identifier = NewRelic.startInteraction(withName: "myInteractionName")
NewRelic.stopCurrentInteraction(identifier)

Syntax

startInteraction(options: { value: string; }) => Promise<{ value: string; }>

Description

Track a method as an interaction.

Parameters

Parameter

Type

Description

options

{ value: string; }

Required. The name you want to give to the interaction.

Example

const badApiLoad = async () => {
const id = await NewRelicCapacitorPlugin.startInteraction({ value: 'StartLoadBadApiCall' });
console.log(id);
const url = 'https://fakewebsite.com/moviessssssssss.json';
fetch(url)
.then((response) => response.json())
.then((responseJson) => {
console.log(responseJson);
NewRelicCapacitorPlugin.endInteraction({ interactionId: id.value });
}) .catch((error) => {
NewRelicCapacitorPlugin.endInteraction({ interactionId: id.value });
console.error(error);
});
};
