Creating custom fields for your application

Create custom fields to collect additional end-user experience data such as cookies, local storage and session storage that are stored in the browser. You can also collect data such as request/response headers and payload. While the type of stored application data is the same across multiple applications, the keys and values might differ across applications. For example, two applications might use cookies with different names or use the browser's local storage differently. Based on the application’s usage, you can configure additional data to be retrieved.

To create a custom field


To successfully create and configure collection of custom fields, you must be familiar with the parameters collected by your application.

  2. Select an application.
    If you have not created an application, see Collecting end-user experience data from applications.

  3. Select the Custom Fields tab.

  4. Click + Create to create a new custom field mapping. If a custom field already exists, click  to edit it.
