Public Methods

public abstract Task<Void> end (Action action)

Logs that the user has stopped doing something in the app.

Use this method for a user action of some duration that has come to an end, like when the user has finished viewing an article or stopped listening to a song, as well as for instantanious actions the user has taken, such as sending a message or adding a song to a playlist. For these instantanious actions, don't call start(Action) at all, but just end(Action).

Parameters
action The Action describing either the instantanious action the user has just taken, or the more long-lived activity the user has stopped doing in the app; for the latter start(Action) should be called before calling end(Action).
Returns
  • A Task indicating the result of the operation.

public static synchronized FirebaseUserActions getInstance ()

Returns an instance of FirebaseUserActions.

The default FirebaseApp instance must have been initialized before this function is called.

public abstract Task<Void> start (Action action)

Logs that the user has started doing something in the app.

Use this method for a user action of some duration, like viewing an article or listening to a song. If the action is instantanious, such as sending a message or adding a song to a playlist, then make a single call to end(Action) instead.

Parameters
action The Action describing what the user has started doing in the app.
Returns
  • A Task indicating the result of the operation.
