Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Blueprint Analytics issues

Hello!

A query.... As I could find no answers, searching the AnswerHub, Google, Engine Code, etc.

Question:

How to get Analytics for Local File system enabled such that it will actually work.

  1. both File, and Blueprint Analytics are enabled, in Plugins.

  2. There is no section for Analytics in the engine.ini, after enabling support for analytics,

  3. This link here, says there needs to be a section for Analytics, but doesn't show WHAT needs to be there for local file support.

https://www.unrealengine.com/blog/measuring-success

or this link, gives no further information for this issue either

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Gameplay/Analytics/Blueprints/index.html

  1. The following is in the output log, after enabling analytics, and attempting to use it.

LogAnalytics:Warning: CreateAnalyticsProvider called with a module name of None. LogAnalyticsBPLib:Warning: RecordEvent: Failed to get the default analytics provider. Double check your [Analytics] configuration in your INI LogAnalytics:Warning: CreateAnalyticsProvider called with a module name of None. LogAnalyticsBPLib:Warning: RecordError: Failed to get the default analytics provider.

LogAnalyticsBPLib:Warning: RecordError: Failed to get the default analytics provider. Double check your [Analytics] configuration in your INI

  1. I"m more than happy to check, the Analytics Config, assuming that I know what to put there, but I don't.

Any Ideas?

Thank you in advance,

Jay

as a follow up, I checked the directory in the error message, the following files at least have the name analytics.

1 answer: sort voted first

In your $ProjectRoot/Config/DefaultEngine.ini:

 [Analytics]
 ProviderModuleName=FileLogging
 SendInterval=60

If you haven't already seen it, take note of the big warning on https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Gameplay/Analytics/FileLogging/index.html about filling your disk up if you use this in production.

For AnalyticsMulticast, the docs are misleading / wrong. You need something like this:

 [Analytics]
 ProviderModuleName=AnalyticsMulticast

 [AnalyticsDevelopment]
 ProviderModuleNames=FileLogging,IOSFlurry

In that case, "Development" refers to the build configuration, so you can have AnalyticsDebug, AnalyticsTest, or plain Analytics for the release configuration. In any configuration though, you still need ProviderModuleName=AnalyticsMulticast to be in the [Analytics] section. (Arguably that's a bug; it's certainly very confusing.)

Ewan!

Absolutly FANTASTIC!!!! Thank you very much, I had found everything in the code tree except the "filelogging", that was the piece I needed, and you provided it! thank you!

Plugged that in, the logging system I wrote activated, json output, life is good.

Agreed on the warning about disk filling up, but this "logging" is under very strict control, with parms settable by the customer as to the max number of "log entries" etc to allow, that sort of thing.

Agreed on it being confusing, especially when I found what you did, about the AnalyticsDevelopment etc. I was sitting here, going oh good grief, now we have even more "config possibilities"! lol

Anyway, thank you very much!
