Tying Analytics to Users

Before Mobile Analytics can collect and present any analytic data about your app, you must identify it to Mobile Analytics. Once an app has been identified in the service, it can begin to collect data about the users of your app. There are two pieces of information you need so your application can identify itself with Mobile Analytics:

  • The Amazon Cognito identity pool created to authenticate users of your application.

  • The AppID created in the Mobile Analytics console when you added your app to Mobile Analytics.

When you use the Mobile Analytics REST API, your app provides the AppID as part of the client context header you include when calling the PutEvents action. Your app provides the Amazon Cognito identity pool ID as part of initializing Amazon Cognito Identity.
