The User Activity view allows you to see a detailed summary of data associated with a single user. Note that only users with the Admin or Support roles can access the User Activity view.
To find a user, begin entering any known ID for the user, an email address, customer ID, device ID, etc. The ID must match exactly to return a profile. If multiple profiles are returned, select the user you want from the list.
You can search for any element in your Identity Set. To perform a search do the following:
- Navigate to the Activity > User Activity screen. The User Search dialog displays on the screen.
- Enter the search terms in the search field. *. You can narrow your search by clicking the Any Profile field drop-down and selecting any field that is part of your Identity Set.
- Click the Search button. The screen refreshes and search results are displayed in the Information screen.
View individual results by clicking a row. From the individual results you can do the following:
- Submit a New GDPR Request. For more information about GDPR requests, see Subject Requests
- View User Events by clicking the Events tab or by scrolling to the bottom of the screen and clicking the View User Events button
- Expand any of the sections on the Information screen for more information about your results
The information shown on this screen is explained in the following sections.
The following user information will be displayed if available:
- mParticle ID
- Customer ID
- Email Address
- First and last seen dates (across all workspaces)
- First and last seen dates (for the individual workspace)
- Data Inputs and Partner Feeds the user has appeared in.
- Device ID - only one Device ID will be shown, for the most recently seen device. The Advertising ID (IDFA or GAID) will be shown for preference, with the Vendor ID (IDFV or Android ID) as a fallback.
List of all devices, including the date the device was last seen, device platform (iOS, Android, etc) and whether
Limit Ad Tracking is enabled for the device.
List of all available user attributes. Display priority is given to reserved user attributes:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Mobile Number
- Zip Code
All other user attributes will be displayed in alphabetical order.
A list of campaigns, showing Partner and Campaign name.
A list of all Audiences the user is a member of.
The Events tab will show a timeline of historical event data from the user, up until the previous day. Events can be filtered by Date, Input, Event Type and Device. In addition to filtering, you can also choose to highlight selected event names in the timeline.The Last Updated tag in the UAV Events view indicates the last time the data was refreshed on the page, not when the previous day's data has been loaded. The timezone for this tag is UTC.
Events are grouped in batches, with the input source in bold. Click a batch heading to view common attributes for the batch, or an event name to view attributes for the event. eCommerce events show details for the transaction and also for each product, including quantity and total price per product.
Click the Link button in the details view to copy a sharable direct link to the event to your clipboard.
As with the Live Stream You can expand any event or batch to view the raw JSON data.
The System Alerts dashboard reports all errors returned when forwarding data to your connected outputs. This dashboard helps you to find any connections that are failing to forward data, and it can help you to begin debugging a connection you already know is experiencing problems by highlighting the specific errors reported.
System Alerts dashboard
To view system alerts, log into your mParticle account and navigate to Activity > System Alerts in the left nav bar.
The System Alerts dashboard lists all of your connections sorted by their alert volume, from high to low according to alerts reported during the last 12 hours.
You can view alerts reported during different date ranges by using the Date dropdown menu.All times on the System Alerts dashboard are displayed in UTC.
To view alerts reported for only the production or development environment, select the environment using the Environment dropdown menu. You can also look for a specific connection with the search bar.
To view details on the specific alerts reported for a connection, select it from the list labeled Connections.
The alerts displayed are sorted by volume and organized according to their type. To view the volume of alerts for each input, click the + icon next to the alert type. You can search for a specific alert using the search bar on the System Alerts dashboard.

The Event Forwarding report provides information on your app’s incoming event data and the data that is forwarded to enabled output event services. This is where you can verify how much data mParticle captured per event, and how much data was forwarded. If multiple configurations are enabled for an integration, the data sent to each configuration will be shown separately. We recommend checking this report if you notice any discrepancies in your vendor dashboards.Event data receieved with an event timestamp that is 72 hours older than the time it is received will not be captured in this report. For example: Today is February 24, 2022 at 11:00 UTC, I send an event to the API with event timestamp February 21, 2022 at 10:00 UTC. The report for February 21, 2022 view will not count the event. Please work with mParticle Support to pull a report of total event counts if sending backdated data.
The report displays a daily summary of events, plus counts for each message type and event name, along with the inbound and outbound counts for each enabled service. By default a summary of data for a full day is shown, but you can also select a specific hour to display hourly data.
You may notice differences between an inbound data count and an outbound data count. There are several reasons these differences may occur. Here are some good questions to start with:
- Did you enable/disable the service on the date in question?
- Are you using data filters?
- Is the message type not supported by the integration?
- Have you chosen configuration or connection settings that exclude certain message types?
- Are you sending commerce events that are expanded before being forwarded?
Commerce Event Types and Event Forwarding
Four events, called commerce events, capture information about financial transactions: product commerce events, purchase or refund commerce events, promotion commerce events, and impression commerce events.
Commerce events behave differently from other events:
- If the event is forwarded using an mParticle SDK with an embedded kit that doesn't implement
logCommerceEvent, then the event is expanded to ensure that no data is lost.
- If the event is forwarded server-to-server or using an mParticle SDK with an embedded kit that does support
logCommerceEvent, then no expansion is needed, and no data is lost.
In addition, the expansion behavior is different depending on the commerce event type:
- Product commerce events and impression commerce events expand to one event per product.
- Purchase or refund commerce events add an additional event with the total value.
- Promotion commerce events expand to one event per promotion action type such as "click" or "view."
