Omniture integration with RSG_Analytics failing

Omniture integration with RSG_Analytics failing:

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

I'm attempting to add Omniture tracking into my app using the Roku Analytics component as described in the sdk here: ... +Component

Following the sdk and the sample channels, I was able to initiate an analytics node and send a number of properly formatted trackEvents() with the debug flag on using a dummy baseUrl. Unfortunately, after I switched to the real baseUrl which returned header information to parse, the header parsing called the validStr() function which is not defined in the Roku Analytics node scope. The runtime threw a function call operator runtime error and crashed as shown below, and I'm not sure how to fix this as this is all internal to the Roku Analytics library...

Device: 3600X, Firmware version: 8.10 build 4145

129:      end if
130:      if m.debug then ? "NWM_Omniture: got " + type(msg)
132:      if type(msg) = "roUrlEvent" ' should always be true
133:        headers = msg.GetResponseHeadersArray()

137:            rx = Createobject("roRegEx", "(s_vi=.*?);", "")
138:            matches = rx.Match(cookies)
139:            if matches.Count() > 1
140:              m.cookie = matches[1]
141:              if m.debug then ? "NWM_Omniture: found cookie " + m.cookie

I am getting the same error on the same line.

Re: Omniture integration with RSG_Analytics failing

I believe this is a bug. I have seen validstr referenced in other brs util code, but it appears to be undefined in the roku_analytics lib, so I'm guessing that this use of validstr was accidentally left in. Analytics requests that do not return set-cookie headers are fine, but any that do fail on this line.

Re: Omniture integration with RSG_Analytics failing

@cmmclaug can I ask how the heck you managed to get at the source for the analytics component? We're having troubles and Roku's support leaves a lot to be desired!
