Add event analysis

Last Updated: Jun 23, 2021

Event analysis refers to the statistical analysis of indicators based on events, and provides insight about users’ usage on an app.

The event analysis page displays the events previously configured on the event configuration page and reported by the system. To add custom analysis reports, you must select the events that you want to analyze on the Event analysis tab, and complete the configurations.

Procedure

Log in to the mPaaS console and complete the following steps:

  1. From the navigation bar on the left, click Mobile Analysis Service > Custom Analysis.
  2. On the right of the page, click Event analysis.
  3. Click the event name that you want to add the custom analysis for.
  4. Click Add custom analysis.
  5. On the Add custom analysis page, complete the following configurations:
    • Analysis name: Enter the name of the custom analysis.
    • Display indicators: Select the attributes to be displayed on the report for the event. To add filter rules for indicators, complete the following steps:
      1. Click Show filter rule, and then click + AND to add a filter rule.
      2. Set the parameters and the corresponding filter rules, and then click Save.
    • Comparison indicators: Select a comparative event, set its indicators, and choose the calculation method if applicable. The data is shown in the report. You can add filter rule for the comparative indicators:
      1. Click Show filter rule, and then click + AND to add a filter rule.
      2. Set the parameters and the corresponding filter rules, and then click Save.
    • Aggregation rule: Select the dimension that the preceding indicators are aggregated from. You can add multiple aggregate rules.
      The aggregate rule equals the SQL Group by statement, which is used to split a dataset to multiple areas and process the data in those areas. For example, for the daily active devices indicator, if you select device brand as aggregate rule, the same device brand corresponds to one curve of daily active devices.
    • Chart type: Select how the event analysis is presented.
  6. Click OK.
  7. To add more analysis reports for the current event, repeat the steps 4 ~ 6.

Results

On the Event analysis tab, click the event name, and you can see the analysis reports of this event. One card is generated for each newly added analysis report. All the cards are displayed on the Custom analysis > Custom configuration > Manage cards page.

Once an event is created, the client starts reporting relevant logs in 1 minute, and you can see the analysis report. However, the report does not contain the data generated before the event was created.
