iOS Debug Mode

DebugMode enables you to see the event data logged by your app in near real-time. This is very useful for validation purposes during the instrumentation phase of development and can help you discover errors and mistakes in your Analytics implementation and confirm that all events and user properties are logged correctly.

In DebugMode events are logged every 10 seconds and are stored in offline mode up to 1 hour.

To enable DebugMode provide isDebugMode: true to Reteno.start() method:

Reteno.start(apiKey: "API_KEY", isDebugMode: true)

From Reteno SDK 2.0.4 onwards, you can use:

let configuration: RetenoConfiguration = .init(isDebugMode: true)
Reteno.start(apiKey: "API_KEY", configuration: configuration)

To view events from your app in debug mode specify X-Reteno-Debug:true in the request’s headers.

Then go to settings -> Mob Push -> and click Debug next to the app name.
