In-app event maintenance
Sometimes, your in-app event setup needs change. Learn how to archive, restore, and disable your in-app events in Adjust in the sections to follow.

Archive in-app events

Once an event is archived, Adjust will no longer display that event's data in the statistics pages of your Adjust dashboard. Additionally, archived events will not be included in your Snapshot or Drill Down exported reporting.

Archiving an event is not a permanent action and does not delete the event from Adjust's system. All archived events will continue to be tracked on the backend and can still be exported via the Adjust KPI Service tool. If an archived event is reinstated, Adjust will display all historically tracked event data, including any event conversions made during the archival period. An archived event never expires and can be reactivated at any time.

To achieve and maintain the highest dashboard performance, Adjust will automatically archive events that are more than 3 months old and have no tracked history. This means that if you create an event that is not tracked in the 3 months following its creation, it will automatically be archived. In the instance that one of these archived events is triggered, Adjust will automatically unarchive the event and display it in your statistics pages.

Instructions

In the Adjust dashboard
  1. Navigate to your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select All Settings > (DATA MANAGEMENT) Events
  3. Locate the event that you wish to archive, and select the archive (trash can) icon
  4. Confirm your decision

Restore archived events

Instructions

In the Adjust dashboard
  1. Navigate to your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select All Settings > (DATA MANAGEMENT) Events
  3. Navigate to the bottom of the module and check Show archive events
  4. Identify the event that you wish to restore, and select the restore icon (arrow)
Once selected, the event will be restored and all corresponding metrics will display in the statistics section of your Adjust dashboard.

Disable in-app events

If you want to terminate tracking for a particular event, then you must disable it outside of the Adjust dashboard. The process for disabling event tracking depends on the implementation in use and can be accomplished as follows: 

For events tracked within the Adjust SDK

If event tracking occurs client side, then you must delete the event token(s) from the Adjust SDK and resubmit your app to the store. 

For events tracked server-to-server

If event tracking occurs server side, then you must cease submission of the affiliated POST request to the Adjust endpoint: https://s2s.adjust.com/event Since all Adjust event tracking occurs outside of your app, you do not need to make any changes to the Adjust SDK.
