I'm working on changing a Xamarin.Forms app to use Microsoft App Center with the impending retirement of Xamarin Insights. So far it seems to be going well, though I do have a question about it.
In the app currently, we were using Insights.Identify to provide additional helpful information to us when looking at the Insights logs, such as the name of the user that has logged in, and the system that they're connecting to. I've been trying to find the equivalent for this in Microsoft App Center, but I didn't find anything in any of the documentation of the APIs that I was reviewing, and there doesn't seem to be any methods provided in the App Center NuGet packages that handle this same functionality.
Is this feature not implemented in App Center yet or is there some other way to provide this information in App Center? I tried creating a CustomProperties object, setting some Key/Value pairs in the object, and then calling AppCenter.SetCustomProperties, but that didn't seem to help. Would the best option right now be to just pass an IDictionary object with the key/value pairs I want to include in the log when making calls to methods like Crashes.TrackError or Analytics.TrackEvent?
Thanks in advance!
