Tracking custom events for Android and FireOS

You can record custom events in Braze to learn more about your app’s usage patterns and segment your users by their actions on the dashboard.

Before implementation, be sure to review examples of the segmentation options afforded by custom events, custom attributes, and purchase events in our analytics overview, as well as our notes on event naming conventions.

Adding a custom event

1
Braze.getInstance(context).logCustomEvent(YOUR_EVENT_NAME);

Braze.getInstance(context).logCustomEvent(YOUR_EVENT_NAME)

Refer to our KDoc for more information.

Adding properties

You can add metadata about custom events by passing a Braze properties object with your custom event.

Properties are defined as key-value pairs. Keys are String objects, and values can be String, int, float, boolean, or Date objects.
