Get Started with Google Analytics for Firebase for Unity

Google Analytics for Firebase collects usage and behavior data for your app. The SDK logs two primary types of information:

  • Events: What is happening in your app, such as user actions, system events, or errors.
  • User properties: Attributes you define to describe segments of your user base, such as language preference or geographic location.

Analytics automatically logs some events and user properties; you don't need to add any code to enable them. If your app needs to collect additional data, you can set up to 25 different Analytics user properties and log up to 500 different Analytics event types in your app. There is no limit on the total volume of events your app logs.

To access this data:

  1. In the Firebase console, open your project.
  2. Select Analytics from the menu to view the Analytics reporting dashboard.

The Events tab shows the event reports that are automatically created for each distinct type of Analytics event logged by your app. Read more about the Analytics reporting dashboard in the Firebase Help Center.

To help you get started, the Analytics SDK defines a number of suggested events that are common among different types of apps, including retail and ecommerce, travel, and gaming apps. To learn more about these events and when to use them, browse the Events and properties articles in the Firebase Help Center. To get the maximum detail in reports, log the suggested Analytics events that make sense for your app and their prescribed parameters. This also ensures that you benefit from the latest Google Analytics for Firebase features as they become available.

Before you begin

Before you can use Google Analytics for Firebase, you need to:

  • Register your Unity project with your Firebase project.
  • Add the Firebase Unity SDK (specifically, FirebaseAnalytics.unitypackage) to your Unity project.

Find detailed instructions for these initial setup steps in Add Firebase to your Unity project.

Log events

You can immediately begin to log events with the LogEvent() method.

The following example logs events with various types of arguments:

// Log an event with no parameters.
Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics
  .LogEvent(Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.EventLogin);

// Log an event with a float parameter
Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics
  .LogEvent("progress", "percent", 0.4f);

// Log an event with an int parameter.
Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics
  .LogEvent(
    Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.EventPostScore,
    Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.ParameterScore,
    42
  );

// Log an event with a string parameter.
Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics
  .LogEvent(
    Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.EventJoinGroup,
    Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.ParameterGroupId,
    "spoon_welders"
  );

// Log an event with multiple parameters, passed as a struct:
Firebase.Analytics.Parameter[] LevelUpParameters = {
  new Firebase.Analytics.Parameter(
    Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.ParameterLevel, 5),
  new Firebase.Analytics.Parameter(
    Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.ParameterCharacter, "mrspoon"),
  new Firebase.Analytics.Parameter(
    "hit_accuracy", 3.14f)
};
Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.LogEvent(
  Firebase.Analytics.FirebaseAnalytics.EventLevelUp,
  LevelUpParameters);
