Use the Analytics Plugin to send analytics events to the Behavioral Analytics Product. Follow the instructions to set up the plugin.

Installation

yarn add @elastic/search-ui-analytics-plugin
## OR
npm install @elastic/search-ui-analytics-plugin

Basic Usage

Add the Analytics Plugin to your Search UI configuration like so:

import AnalyticsPlugin from "@elastic/search-ui-analytics-plugin";

// search ui configuration
const config = {
  apiConnector: connector,
  searchQuery: { ... },
  plugins: [ AnalyticsPlugin() ]
}

By default, the Analytics Plugin will use the Behavioral Analytics client provided when using script tag integration.

Passing in a custom analytics client

If you integrated Behavioral Analytics using the @elastic/behavioral-analytics-javascript-tracker NPM package, you can pass in a custom analytics client to the Analytics Plugin.


import AnalyticsPlugin from "@elastic/search-ui-analytics-plugin";
import { createTracker, getTracker } from "@elastic/behavioral-analytics-javascript-tracker";

createTracker({
  // the DSN can be found in the Behavioral Analytics Collections view page
    dsn: "https://my-analytics-dsn.elastic.co"
})

// search ui configuration
const config = {
  apiConnector: connector,
  searchQuery: { ... },
  plugins: [
    AnalyticsPlugin({
      client: getTracker()
    })
  ]
}
