Tracking Observability
Inspector Installation Overview

How to send metadata to the Inspector

There are a few ways to install Inspector to add observability to your events, depending on how you send your events from your product already as well as your preferences. Below is an overview of all the installation methods available.

Install Inspector in your CDP

If you send your events through a CDP (Customer Data Platform) you can configure the CDP to route the event metadata to the Inspector by setting up an Avo Inspector destination.

The main benefit of this solution is that it does not require work from a developer and can be done without changing your application code and releasing a new version. All setup is done on the CDP's side.

Install Inspector via GTM

If you send events through GTM (Google Tag Manager) you can observe both client and server side events with one of our GTM integrations. On the client side you can either use our importable GTM recipe or the Inspector Get Schema Function. On the server side (beta) you can either Import the Avo Inspector GTM template or create Avo Inspector GTM tag.

Install Inspector SDK

If you’re not using one of the supported CDPs you can send events data with an SDK. It will require one time setup and a new app release and takes 10-30 minutes, depending on the developer’s experience. We recommend asking a developer that is familiar with the existing event tracking setup to help with this setup.

Does Inspector receive PII data?

No. Inspector does not receive any PII data. Inspector only takes schema metadata, containing event names, property names, and types of properties.
