Splunk MINT: How to do determine if Mint.initAndStartSession() has already been called?

New Member

We have an Android app with numerous entry points: a main activity, a broadcast receiver for events, a job service for scheduling, a background service, an install referrer, etc.

What is the best way in each of these components to determine if Mint.initAndStartSession() has already been called?

The only way that we've found to do this so far is to use Mint.addExtraData() to add a key/value pair to Mint after calling initAndStartSession(), and to check for the existence of that key any time that we want to initialize Mint. The Java code sample below illustrates this technique.

Is there a better way to do this?

public static void initCrashReporting(Context appContext, String tag)
{
    HashMap<String, Object> map = Mint.getExtraData();
    if ((map != null) && map.containsKey(MINT_INITIALIZED)) {
        Log.d(tag, "Mint is already initialized");
    } else {
        Log.d(tag, "Mint is not initialized, doing so now...");
        Mint.initAndStartSession(appContext, MINT_APP_KEY);
        Mint.addExtraData(MINT_INITIALIZED, "xyz");
    }
}

We'd actually suggest that; it's the safest thing to do.
