Report Handled Exceptions

❗️

Handled exception reporting is available only for native (iOS & Android) apps.

Non-fatal or caught exceptions are those that are manually handled by developers that do not result in application flow breaking. Once your application reaches a code block that raises an exception, you can catch the exception and send it to UXCam using the reportExceptionEvent API.

You can send handled exceptions to UXCam to:

  • See how non-fatal exceptions impact your app performance and users' experience.
  • Prevent the propagation of errors.
  • Find the most common reasons and types of exceptions.
  • Watch the recordings and send additional details for a deeper analysis.

In addition to the handled exception, you can send additional key-value properties to attach more details about the exception.

🚧

e.g. if you have an e-commerce app and the user entered an invalid number when selecting quantity, you can send the properties bug=invalid number.

API Implementation

Use the following API to send handled exceptions in UXCam.

-(void)reportExceptionEvent:(NSException*)exception 
properties(NSDictionary<NSString*,id>*)properties;

//Example
@try
    {
        // Exception crash
        NSArray* junk = @[@0,@1,@2];
        NSLog(@"Array 3 = %@", junk[3]);
    }
    @catch (NSException *exception)
    {
        NSDictionary *map = @{@"bug_sample_param_1": @"bug_sample_value_1", @"bug_sample_param_2": @"bug_sample_value_2"};
        [UXCam reportExceptionEvent:exception properties: map];
    }
UXCam.reportExceptionEvent(Throwable exception) 

// With custom properties
UXCam.reportExceptionEvent(Throwable exception, Map<String, Object> properties)

//Example
try {
    throw new Exception("Forced exception");
} catch (Exception e) {
    Map<String, Object> map = new HashMap<>();
    map.put("bug_sample_param_1", "bug_sample_value_1");
    map.put("bug_sample_param_2", "bug_sample_value_2");
    UXCam.reportExceptionEvent(e, map);
}
