Configure your project for symbolication

Before you can analyze crash reports, the stack traces need to be symbolicated―that is, replacing memory addresses with human-readable function names and line numbers. These debug symbols are contained in dSYM bundles that are updated periodically.

You can configure symbolication on the server or on the device. However, server-side symbolication yields better symbolication results.

Note If you enable bitcode in your application, MINT crash reports will not be symbolicated. For details, see Bitcode support.

Configure server-side symbolication

  1. In Xcode, open your project and select the target.
  2. Make sure that your binary name (usually the target name) contains only Latin characters (e.g., only those within ISO-8859-1 character set also known as Latin-1) and no spaces. Otherwise, symbolication may not be successful.
  3. On the Build Settings tab, verify the following are set for all configurations (typically Debug and Release):
    • Strip Debug Symbols During Copy: Yes
    • Strip Linked Product: Yes
  4. On the Build Phases tab, click the + symbol, then click New Run Script Phase.
  5.  New run script.png
    
  6. In the script editor, add the following script:
  7. SCRIPT=`/usr/bin/find "${SRCROOT}" -name splunkmint_postbuild_dsym_upload_script.sh | head -n 1`
    /bin/bash "${SCRIPT}" "API_KEY" "API_TOKEN"

    Be sure to replace API_KEY and API_TOKEN with your MINT API key and API token, respectively. (To find your API token, go to MINT Management Console, then go to Account > Account Info.)

    Note This script is designed to run on released builds only. (The Xcode console displays symbolicated stack traces when you run your app in debug mode.)
  8. To test the configuration, configure the project schema for release and build your project. If the build succeeds, symbolication should be set up correctly.

Configure on-device symbolication

You can symbolicate the crash reports on the device, although on-device symbolication does not provide as much useful information, such as the line of code that crashed your application.

Note Do not configure your mobile app for on-device symbolication if you are targeting iOS version 9.
  1. In Xcode, open your project and select the target.
  2. On the Build Settings tab, verify the following are set for all configurations (typically Debug and Release):
    • Strip Debug Symbols During Copy: No
    • Strip Linked Product: No
    • Deployment Postprocessing: No
    • Generate Debug Symbols: Yes
