Network Insights

Whenever an app makes a network call, Workspace ONE Intelligence SDK monitors and captures certain information automatically. You can optionally configure filtering and location details. For an introduction, see Network Insights.

Workspace ONE Intelligence SDK automatically monitors the performance of network requests formed via the following APIs:

  • all iOS versions
    • [NSURLConnection connectionWithRequest:delegate:]
    • [NSURLConnection sendAsynchronousRequest:queue:completionHandler]
    • [NSURLConnection sendSynchronousRequest:returningResponse:error:]
    • [NSURLConnection initWithRequest:delegate:]
    • [NSURLConnection initWithRequest:delegate:startImmediately:]
  • iOS 8 and above
    • [NSURLSession dataTaskWithURL:]
    • [NSURLSession dataTaskWithURL:completionHandler:]
    • [NSURLSession dataTaskWithRequest:]
    • [NSURLSession dataTaskWithRequest:completionHandler:]
    • [NSURLSession downloadTaskWithURL:]
    • [NSURLSession downloadTaskWithURL:completionHandler:]
    • [NSURLSession downloadTaskWithRequest:]
    • [NSURLSession downloadTaskWithRequest:completionHandler:]
    • [NSURLSession downloadTaskWithResumeData:]
    • [NSURLSession downloadTaskWithResumeData:completionHandler:]

Workspace ONE Intelligence can also monitor requests made via web views. This form of monitoring must be explicitly enabled. See more details see Monitoring Web Views.

  • [WKWebView loadRequest:]


Workspace ONE Intelligence does not monitor [UIWebView loadRequest:]. If you need this, consider using WKWebView or Logging Network Request.

Disabling Network Insights

See Network Insights Configuration to disable automatic Network Insights.

Filtering Captured Data

It is possible to customise filter blacklists that will completely discard matching URLs. See CRFilter and Network Insights Configuration for more information.

Configuring Location

Network Insights ties location information to network data. By default, location information is obtained through a reverse IP lookup.

Starting with library version 4.1.1, you have the option of sending more accurate latitude and longitude information to our servers. Update location of the device location by calling the updateLocation API.
