How do I gather mobile crash stack traces using the API?

Question

How can a user capture mobile crash stack traces automatically using an API? 

 

 

Users may be gathering crash data from the mobile_crash_reports table using ADQL, but there is no stack trace information in this table.

 

Stack trace data is stored within the AppDynamics system, and displayed in a web browser.

Answer

As of AppDynamics version 4.3, there is no API available to gather crash data from the mobile_crash_reports table.

 

As a workaround, set the following variables and use curl to request the full crash report.

 

Note: The URLs may change in different controller versions because these are not public APIs. The following example is for AppDynamics version 4.2 and 4.3 Controllers.

 

 Set these variables:

USER=
ACCOUNT=
PASSWORD=
CONTROLLER_URL=
APPLICATION=      # You can find this in the url when viewing an app.  It will say "application=X" where X is an integer
CRASH_ID=         # This is the crashid field from analytics (not groupid)

# Get a login cookie from the controller:

curl -X GET \
    -c /tmp/cookie \
    --user "${USER}@${ACCOUNT}:${PASSWORD}" \
    "http://${CONTROLLER_URL}/controller/auth?action=login"

# Then request the full crash report:

curl -X GET \
    -b /tmp/cookie \
    "https://${CONTROLLER_URL}/controller/restui/crashDetails/download/${APPLICATION}/${CRASH_ID}"
