Moesif Java OkHttp Interceptor SDK

Built For Latest Version Software License Source Code


moesif-java-okhttp-interceptor is a Java OkHttp interceptor that logs outbound HTTP(s) calls and sends events to Moesif for API analytics and monitoring .

The SDK includes Java and Kotlin examples. It is implemented as a OkHttp Interceptor
and can be used either as Application Interceptor or Network Interceptor. It requires Moesif Application Id credentials to submit events to Moesif.

With a single statement .addInterceptor(new MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor()) it can start capturing events.

How to install

For Maven users, add dependency to your pom.xml:


For Gradle users, add to your project’s build.gradle file:

repositories {  
  dependencies {     
    implementation 'com.moesif:moesif-okhttp-interceptor:1.0.6'

How to use

Set the Moesif Application Id environment variable. Alternatively, this key can also be directly passed using MoesifApiConnConfig.

$ export MOESIF_APPLICATION_ID = "Your Moesif App Id Here"  

Build the OkHttp client.

The Moesif OkHttp Interceptor can be utilized for both types of OkHttp interceptors Link

  Application Interceptor
Java addInterceptor(new MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor())
Kotlin addInterceptor(MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor())

For Network Interceptor, change addInterceptor to addNetworkInterceptor

To pass Moesif Application Id directly in lieu of setting as environment variable:
Change MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor() to MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor("Your Moesif Application Id here")
The Official OkHttp3 recipe for Synchronous Get
has been modified below.

Example (Kotlin)

$ export MOESIF_APPLICATION_ID = "Your Moesif App Id Here"  
import com.moesif.sdk.okhttp3client.MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor

val client = OkHttpClient.Builder()
 .addInterceptor(MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor()) // The only modification to official sample

val request = Request.Builder()  

client.newCall(request).execute().use { response ->  
  if (!response.isSuccessful) throw IOException("Unexpected code $response")  
  for ((name, value) in response.headers) {
    println("$name: $value")

Example (Java)

$ export MOESIF_APPLICATION_ID = "Your Moesif App Id Here"  
import com.moesif.sdk.okhttp3client.MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor;  
private final OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient.Builder()  
 .addInterceptor(new MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor())  // The only modification to official sample

public void run() throws Exception {  
 Request request = new Request.Builder()
 try (Response response = client.newCall(request).execute()) {
   if (!response.isSuccessful()) throw new IOException("Unexpected code " + response);
   Headers responseHeaders = response.headers();
   for (int i = 0; i < responseHeaders.size(); i++) {
      System.out.println( + ": " +  responseHeaders.value(i));

Obtaining your Moesif Application Id

Your Moesif Application Id can be found in the Moesif Portal.
After signing up for a Moesif account, your Moesif Application Id will be displayed during the onboarding steps.

You can always find your Moesif Application Id at any time by logging
into the Moesif Portal, click on the top right menu,
and then clicking Installation.

Advanced Configuration options

Filtering, masking and customizing events sent to Moesif

By default, all events are submitted, and no content is masked. This default behavior is captured in the default config file

This behavior can be overwritten by creating a custom config class that implements IInterceptEventFilter.

Here is a sample customized config file “”

public static class MyCustomEventFilterConfig implements IInterceptEventFilter{

    public EventModel maskContent(EventModel eventModel) {
        if (eventModel.getRequest().getIpAddress() == "")
        return eventModel;

    public boolean skip(Request request, Response response) {
        return request.method() == "DELETE";

    public Optional<String> identifyUser(Request request, Response response) {
        return Optional.of("customUser");

    public Optional<String> identifyCompany(Request request, Response response) {
        return Optional.of("customCompany");

    public Optional<String> sessionToken(Request request, Response response) {
        return Optional.of("customSessionToken");

    public @Nullable Map<String, Object> getMetadata(Request request, Response response) {
        Map<String, Object> customMetadata = new HashMap<String, Object>();
        Map<String, Object> subObject = new HashMap<String, Object>();
        subObject.put("destructive_method", request.method() == "DELETE");
        customMetadata.put("cost_center", "a554411");
        customMetadata.put("retention_months", 12);
        customMetadata.put("method_detais", subObject);
        return customMetadata;

    public Optional<String> getApiVersion(Request request, Response response) {
        return Optional.of("v-3.1415");

To use this custom config, update it prior to constructing the interceptor

MoesifApiConnConfig cfg = new MoesifApiConnConfig();
cfg.setEventFilterConfig(new MyCustomEventFilterConfig());
MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor interceptor = new MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor(cfg);

Batch size of events submitted to Moesif

By default, events submitted asynchronously to Moesif are batched in sizes of 5 as configured in To configure the batch size to any value greater than zero:

int customSize = 20; // submit events in batch of size 20
new MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor(customSize)


MoesifApiConnConfig cfg = new MoesifApiConnConfig();
new MoesifOkHttp3Interceptor(cfg);

Per current implementation, the batch has to be full to send events. Minimum batch size is 1 - which will send individual events immediately. The buffered events are not modified based on aging of these events.

Note that this events buffer is in memory. It is lost if the process is ended. It is emptied every time events are submitted to Moesif. Setting the buffer to be large can also increase memory consumption.

The events are submitted asynchronously to Moesif. So if the program ends immediately after making an OkHttp request, the event may not have been submitted to Moesif even if the event buffer is size 1. In such case, adding a slight delay may help eg: TimeUnit.SECONDS.sleep(3);
