I was recently asked the following question:


In version 15.1 under data collection, when I’m doing instrumentation for an app I see these 2 values. What does Automated vs manual mean here?


My Answer:

Select Instrumented if you have implemented the MAA SDK to manually name your mobile application transactions (e.g. CAMDOReporter.sharedInstance().startApplicationTransaction("Shop - View Product”)). Otherwise if Automated is selected the MAA SDK will automatically assign a name to each transaction which in most cases with be the name of the current view controller (e.g. TIXCHANGE.ProcutDetailViewController). See image below. The Transactions named “Shop –View Product” were named in the code using the Instrumented setting.
