Configuration (MceConfig.json)

Overview

Configure the properties for your iOS and Android apps when you implement the Mobile SDK in the MceConfig.json properties file.

Config settings

📘

Note:

Configure the SDK using the Swift application delegates to avoid the black screen when starting the app. For example, your value for the appDelegateClass for the sample app would be "SwiftSample.AppDelegate".

Settings ID Value Description
baseURL The base URL for your pod. When you configure the baseURL, you specify the value that is determined by your operating system and Pod.
For a list of baseURLs for pods see the Setting a new baseURL section.
appKey Provide the development app keys and production app keys that were generated in Acoustic Campaign in the dev and prod fields. Depending on how the app is compiled, the SDK can choose the correct app key to use. Do not change your app key after you publish your app.
appDelegateClass Replace AppDelegate with your AppDelegate class name. For Swift apps, you must add the product name as a prefix to the appDelegate class name. Examples using the sample app that is included in the SDK Package:
Swift appDelegateClass: "SwiftSample.AppDelegate"
Objective-C appDelegateClass: "AppDelegate"
logfile True/false Set to true to save your logs to a file for quick access to help with debugging.
Set the UIFileSharingEnabled flag to YES in info.plist. This flag allows the file to be retrieved. Your logs are saved to the iTunes Sync section based on the name of the app.
loglevel
  • error
  • warn
  • info
  • verbose
  • none
  • debug

If the log level option is not present in MceConfig.json, the value will be error by default.
Note: Any other string not on the list will behave like "none". If the log level option is not present in MceConfig.json, the value will be error by default.
Provide a log level for debugging mode and production mode. If you set the log level to:
  • error - only error messages are logged.
  • Warn - both warning and error messages are logged.
  • info - informational, warning, and error messages are logged.
  • verbose - all messages, including events that are sent to the server and callback information are logged.
  • none - nothing is logged.
  • debug - behaves like verbose.
maximumSize The default value is 10MB Maximum number of bytes for log files before they're rotated.
maximumNumberOfLogFiles The default value is 7 Maximum number of rotated log files.
maximumRadius The default value is 2500000 The maximum radius in meters to search for geofences.
defaultRadius The default value is 10000 The default radius in meters within which the SDK starts to search for geofences. The SDK then extends the search up to the maximum radius if the search criteria can’t be satisfied.
maximumCount The default value is 100 The maximum number of search attempts to find geofences.
maximumQuantity The default value is 20 The maximum number of geofences that the SDK can find within the search radius.
minimumQuantity The default value is 1 The minimum number of geofences that the SDK must find within the search radius. The SDK will keep searching for a certain time until the minimumQuantity is found. For example, if the minimumQuantity is 5 and the SDK finds only 4 geofences, it will keep searching until the time set. If the SDK does not find the minimum number of geofences set, it will report not finding any. Therefore, it is recommended to use the default setting of 1.

Config flags

Settings ID Value Description
databaseEncryption True/false
Default value is true.
Use the flag to disable internal database encryption. This is typically only done for testing so the databases can be read in development.
Note: If both the internal encrypted sqlite and the OS provided sqlite are linked on the same application, the internal database encryption will fail. We strongly recommend against rolling back from a version with encryption to a version without; this is likely to result in data loss.
databaseKeyRotationDays The default value is 30. Use this to change the frequency of key rotation for database encryption.
allowJailbrokenDevices True/false
The default value is true.
This flag can be used to disallow jailbroken devices from being able to register.

Setting a new baseURL

Assign new MUIDs

Typically, the SDK remembers the MUID after the MUID has been assigned and starts the next time with the same MUID. This functionality can be inconvenient when testing.
The MceConfig.json file provides the non-sticky MUID option that lets you assign new MUIDs to devices when apps are uninstalled and then reinstalled.
To generate new UserIDs and ChannelIDs when an app is reinstalled, open the MceConfig.json configuration file and set invalidateExistingUser to true. If you set the flag to false, the UserID and ChannelId do not change between reinstallations. The option is set to false, by default. Ensure that invalidateExistingUser is false before you ship your production app.
