Interface MixpanelAPI.People

  • Enclosing class:
    MixpanelAPI

    public static interface MixpanelAPI.People
    Core interface for using Mixpanel People Analytics features. You can get an instance by calling MixpanelAPI.getPeople()

    The People object is used to update properties in a user's People Analytics record. For this reason, it's important to call identify(String) on the People object before you work with it. Once you call identify, the user identity will persist across stops and starts of your application, until you make another call to identify using a different id. A typical use case for the People object might look like this:

     
    
     public class MainActivity extends Activity {
          MixpanelAPI mMixpanel;
    
          public void onCreate(Bundle saved) {
              mMixpanel = MixpanelAPI.getInstance(this, "YOUR MIXPANEL API TOKEN");
              mMixpanel.identify("A UNIQUE ID FOR THIS USER");
              ...
          }
    
          public void userUpdatedJobTitle(String newTitle) {
              mMixpanel.getPeople().set("Job Title", newTitle);
              ...
          }
    
          public void onDestroy() {
              mMixpanel.flush();
              super.onDestroy();
          }
     }

      • identify

        @Deprecated
        void identify​(java.lang.String distinctId)
        Deprecated.
        in 6.2.0 NOTE: This method is deprecated. Please use MixpanelAPI.identify(String) instead.
        Parameters:
        distinctId - a String that uniquely identifies the user. Users identified with the same distinct id will be considered to be the same user in Mixpanel, across all platforms and devices. We recommend choosing a distinct id that is meaningful to your other systems (for example, a server-side account identifier)

        MixpanelAPI.identify(String)
      • set

        void set​(java.lang.String propertyName,
                 java.lang.Object value)
        Sets a single property with the given name and value for this user. The given name and value will be assigned to the user in Mixpanel People Analytics, possibly overwriting an existing property with the same name.
        Parameters:
        propertyName - The name of the Mixpanel property. This must be a String, for example "Zip Code"
        value - The value of the Mixpanel property. For "Zip Code", this value might be the String "90210"

        Parameters:
        properties - a Map containing the collection of properties you wish to apply to the identified user. Each key in the Map will be associated with a property name, and the value of that key will be assigned to the property. See also set(org.json.JSONObject)
      • set

        void set​(org.json.JSONObject properties)
        Set a collection of properties on the identified user all at once.

        Add the given amount to an existing property on the identified user. If the user does not already have the associated property, the amount will be added to zero. To reduce a property, provide a negative number for the value.

        Parameters:
        properties - A map of String properties names to Long amounts. Each property associated with a name in the map will have its value changed by the given amount
