ADBINTERNAL server call

Hello Adobe Community !

I found the following custom link in the report and got some questions:

ADBINTERNAL:Lifecycle

ADBINTERNAL:SessionInfo

ADBINTERNAL:Crash

What are their functions?

Are they necessary? e.g. If we take out ADBINTERNAL:SessionInfo, what would happen?

On what conditions would they fire? e.g. is ADBINTERNAL:Crash would fire during app crash?

Regards,

Ricky

Hi there,

ADBINTERNAL calls are all of your mobile lifecycle metrics, called by default in the Mobile App SDK. If you're looking to have proper data around Launches, First Launches, Crashes, Mobile Messaging, and more, then they are required.

ADBINTERNAL:Lifecycle is called in order to capture the Launches metric.

ADBINTERNAL:SessionInfo seems to be related to the Total Session Length metric.

Hope that helps

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply, very useful.

May I know more on the logic these default calls? Especially on what conditions would they fire?

They will fire as part of the lifecycle tracking. For this to work you will need to have lifecycle enabled:

Android : Core Implementation and Lifecycle

IOS: Core Implementation and Lifecycle

This is how lifecycle metrics are triggered and why:

Android: Lifecycle Metrics

This is how crashes are handled in Android: Track App Crashes

Lifecycle tracking implementation is required by a lot of mobile features like link acquisition as well.
