What would be the right way to implement these changes for an Outsystems Mobile App using the supported Analytics Plugin

To confirm that automatic screen tracking is disabled, you should see the following in your Xcode log when your app launches:

App_Measurement
On Android, you will need to add a <meta-data> element to your AndroidManifest.xml file, inside the <application> element as follows:

There is no confirmation in Logcat that automatic tracking is disabled, but you will see entries for “V/FA: Logging screen view with name, class” when you log the event manually.

Thank you for your support.
