RichRelevance

Android: Item Page

Overview

An Item screen or Product Detail section is typically any experience that shows detailed product information for a single product.

This is a required integration type. You must include the tracking logic even if you do not serve personalization in this section.

Details

Place your code in your fragment's initialization logic, such as onCreate.

Return Personalization

Use this code when you are requesting and serving personalized product recommendations.

Replace the following placeholders in the code:

  • <placement name> with your Placement name. You can find a list of placements in your Dashboard.
  • <product ID> with the Product ID of the item currently being viewed.
Placement placement = new Placement(Placement.PlacementType.ITEM, "<placement name>");

RichRelevance.buildRecommendationsForPlacements(placement)
  .setProductIds("<product ID>")
  .setCallback(new Callback<PlacementResponseInfo>() {
      @Override
      public void onResult(PlacementResponseInfo result) {          
          int index = 0;
          for(PlacementResponse placement : result.getPlacements()) {
              for(final RecommendedProduct recommendedProduct : placement.getRecommendedProducts()) {
                  // Add your view init logic. The actual implementation will depend on your code.
                  // In this example we will assume items are rendered as TableRows in a TableView.
                  TableRow row = new TableRow(context);
                  row.setId(index);
                  row.addView(detailView);
                  index++;
                  tableView.addLayout(row);
              }
          }
      }
      @Override
      public void onError(Error error) {
          // Use this code block to handle errors
          Log.e(getClass().getSimpleName(), "Error: " + error.getMessage());
      }
  }).execute();

Calling multiple placements

If you want to call multiple placements, simply define your placements and pass them to RichRelevance.buildRecommendationsForPlacements() either as individual arguments or as a Collection<Placement>.

IMPORTANT Placements must always be of the same type per request.

// This example defines placements as individual arguments.
Placement topPlacement = new Placement(Placement.PlacementType.ITEM, "recs_top");
Placement middlePlacement = new Placement(Placement.PlacementType.ITEM, "recs_middle");

RichRelevance.buildRecommendationsForPlacements(topPlacement, middlePlacement)
// Add callback logic
.execute();
// This example defines placements as an ArrayList. It is equivalent to the example above.
ArrayList<Placement> placements = new ArrayList<>(
    Arrays.asList(
        new Placement(Placement.PlacementType.ITEM, "recs_top"),
        new Placement(Placement.PlacementType.ITEM, "recs_middle"))
    );

RichRelevance.buildRecommendationsForPlacements(placements)
// Add callback logic
.execute();

Listening Mode

When you do not render personalization in your Item UX, you must still send a tracking request using the SDK. This is required so that RichRelevance can gather usage data in order to train your personalization models. In this specific case, you can use a convenience builder that sets all the configuration parameters (including a listening placement) automatically.

RichRelevance.buildProductView("<product ID>").execute();
