Start here with MINT Overview and complete Steps 1 -7 under How do I monitor mobile apps with Splunk MINT? Before you can pull data into Splunk, integrate SDKs and confirm data at MINT Management Console. Once projects are setup, continue with Set up the Splunk MINT Add-on to pull data from the MINT Data Collector process.

Log in to MINT Management Console.
Click Account > Account Info, and then click Usage.
Under MINT Data Collector token, click Generate Token if a token has not yet been generated.
Copy the token string.

The token string should look something like this: MINT Data Collector Token: 673c93x4c90ac044z147b8b
