With this release, we have added a collection of features described below to the functionality of Webtrekk Data Streams.

Our intention is not only to increase the usability of data streams even more through these new functions but also to enable you as a user to create and configure your data streams independently according to your individual needs.


Self-service Stream Management

You can now create and delete custom streams (the number of custom data streams depends on the limit you have booked).

When defining your custom data stream, you can also select the delivery format (JSON/AVRO) of your custom streams.

Example: Creating a user-defined data stream.


Password Reset Option

It is now possible to reset your password if necessary.

Please note that this password is the password for accessing your Data Streams and not your password from the user administration of your Webtrekk Suite.

In the account overview, the new reset option is now available in the "Actions" column.

Example: "Reset password" command in the accounts overview.


Onboarding Assistance: Connection Information

You now have access to technical information about your data streams at any time. This function is particularly useful for providing you with the necessary information directly from the user interface so that you can implement your Data Streams independently.

Example: "Open connection information" command in the accounts overview.


Opening the connection information box, you will have data such as user name, consumer group, and endpoints.

We have also set up access to current documentation and code examples via the user interface.

Connection Information

Example: Connection information


At https://github.com/webtrekk/webtrekk-data-streams-examples you will find code examples in Java, Python, and Scala that will help you with the implementation.


Multi-language Support

Previously only English was available; now Data Streams also supports the German language.

To switch to the German language, you only need to change the language in your user profile.

Example: Selecting the language in the user profile section.



Release date: October 24, 2019


We have now released a new version of the Android SDK v5 (Beta) including the following new features:

Batch Support

It is possible to send the recorded data in batches instead of single requests.

Documentation: Batch Support


Additional Default Parameters

We have added the following additional app default data:

ParameterDescription
App updateThis parameter is used to analyze how often an app has been updated. When the end-user updates the app to a new version via the app or the Play Store.
App versionThis parameter analyzes whether users are utilizing the latest version of your app. 
App first openThis parameter is tracked when the user opens the app for the first time after installing the mobile application from the Web or App Store.

Please note that all of these new parameters are tracked by using a predefined session parameter, which you have to create in Webtrekk Q3 (see Documentation: Creating Session Parameters in Webtrekk Q3).

Documentation: Default Parameters


New Automatic Tracking Options

It is now possible to turn off activity tracking from automatic tracking (for example, if you want to track fragments only). And you can also set the automatic tracking function to be entirely inactive for a specific screen (for example, to avoid doubling page views when using custom parameters or WebViews).

Documentation: Automatic Tracking




Release date: October 15, 2019


With this release, the A/B Tasty extension for the Smart Tracking Pixel is available.

The A/B Tasty extension facilitates the analysis of your tests and variants. With the help of this extension the information is transferred from A/B Tasty directly to Webtrekk.


Documentation: A/B Tasty Extension


Release date: October 15, 2019

With this release, we provide you with the functionally extended filter options in Analytics.

Using this optimized function, you can, for example, always display specific reports prefiltered.

Example: Report filter in Analytics


The new report filters now include the following options:

  • You can select several filter values per dimension (the OR operator then links the selected values).


  • Filter values can be saved with the report configuration so that the report is filtered directly according to these values when called.

   Example

  By selecting the mobile device classes "Smartphone" and "Tablet," you can ensure that a report only contains data from mobile devices.  


  • You can lock the setting of each filter so that it cannot be changed in view mode.


  • To facilitate input, suggestions are displayed as soon as you click on the input field.


    The displayed proposals do not represent fixed values. If there is no suitable proposal, you can enter the required value.
