Overview
To use the telemetry in a WINDEV or WINDEV Mobile application, you must:
  1. Enable the telemetry in the application. This activation can be done:
    • in the platform description.
  2. Deploy the application:
    • Install the application.
Note: The telemetry data is anonymous data.Note: The telemetry data is anonymous data by default. You have the ability to identify the user by using TelemetryIdentifyUser.

Enabling the telemetry

Configuring the telemetry

To configure the telemetry for the current configuration:
  1. On the "Project" pane, in the "Project configuration" group, click "Current configuration".
  2. Select the "Telemetry" tab to configure the telemetry:
  3. Check "Enable the telemetry for this configuration".
  4. Specify the location of telemetry server:
    • Local, network or Internet network: In this case, you have the ability to specify the protocol used: HTPP or HTTPS.
      Note: For an HTTPS protocol, a certificate must be installed on your Web server (IIS or Apache).
    • CLOUD platform. In this case, all you have to do is specify the CLOUD account to use.
  5. Specify the address of the telemetry server to use:
  6. Check the connection to the telemetry server to make sure that the data is correct.
  7. The option "Telemetry of the application" is used to configure:
    • The application name. This name will be proposed in the telemetry dashboard.
    • The mode for enabling the telemetry. The telemetry is automatically enabled by default but it can be enabled by programming with TelemetryEnable. The mode for triggering the collection of information. The data collection is automatically enabled by default but it can be enabled by programming with TelemetryEnable.
Installing the application
WINDEV Mobile

Installing an application that support the telemetry

The procedure for creating the setup of an application that supports the telemetry is identical to the procedure for creating a standard setup.
The telemetry is automatically enabled when starting the application (or via TelemetryEnable).
The telemetry data is sent whenever possible:
  • when the starting application,
  • when closing the application,
  • every hour,
  • when going into background.
Notes:
  • In order for the telemetry data to be sent, a connection to the telemetry server is required.
  • Using the telemetry in the mobile application does not consume a lot of data.
  • The frequency for collecting information can be defined by TelemetryConfigure. Indeed, the default frequency set to one hour can be reduced in a mobile application.

Enabling the telemetry in the project description

To enable the telemetry in the project description:
  1. Display the description window of project: on the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, click "Description".
  2. In the window that is displayed, select the "Telemetry" tab.
  3. Check "Enable the telemetry for the project" and specify the requested parameters:
    Project description,
    • Server location:
      • Local, network or Internet network: In this case, you have the ability to specify the protocol used: HTPP or HTTPS.
        Note: For an HTTPS protocol, a certificate must be installed on your Web server (IIS or Apache).
      • CLOUD platform. In this case, all you have to do is specify the CLOUD account to use.
        Note: A Telemetry platform is required.
    • Address:
      • Address of server or address of PCCloud platform.
      • User name and associated password. This data was given at the end of setup of telemetry server.
      Check the connection to the telemetry server to make sure that the data is correct.
    • Telemetry of application:
      • Name of application. This name will be proposed in the telemetry dashboard.
      • The mode for triggering the collection of information. The data collection is automatically enabled by default but it can be enabled by programming with TelemetryEnable.
  4. Validate.
These parameters are defined for the current project and for all its configurations. The telemetry can be customized or disabled for each project configuration.
