Migrating from Webtrekk SDK V3

The Webtrekk SDK V4 offers the possibility to migrate some stored information to the new SDK. This option is enabled as per default but in case the old data should be neglected and deleted the value of the migratesFromLibraryV3 variable needs to be set to false before creating the first tracker. The code snippet below shows this case.

WebtrekkTracking.migratesFromLibraryV3 = false

Following properties are part of the migration.

Option Description
everId previously generated everId for the user
appVersion previously stored appVersion used to detect app updates
optedOut previously stored status which is only migrated if not set before
samplingState previously stored samplingState
unsentRequests previously saved unsent requests


As of iOS 9 Apple is more strictly enforcing the usage of SSL for network connections. Webtrekk highly recommends and offers the usage of a valid serverUrl with SSL support. In case there is a need to circumvent this. The App will need an exception entry within the Info.plist. Apple's regulations about this are well documented within the iOS Developer Library
