Crash Reporting with ACRA

Step 1: Add the dependency of latest ACRA AAR to your application gradle(build.gradle).

Step 2: In your application class(the class which extends Application; if not create it) Add a @ReportsCrashes annotation and override the attachBaseContext() method.

Step 3: Initialize the ACRA class in your application class

@ReportsCrashes(
    formUri = "Your choice of backend",
    reportType = REPORT_TYPES(JSON/FORM),
    httpMethod = HTTP_METHOD(POST/PUT),
    formUriBasicAuthLogin = "AUTH_USERNAME",
    formUriBasicAuthPassword = "AUTH_PASSWORD,
    customReportContent = {
            ReportField.USER_APP_START_DATE,
            ReportField.USER_CRASH_DATE,
            ReportField.APP_VERSION_CODE,
            ReportField.APP_VERSION_NAME,
            ReportField.ANDROID_VERSION,
            ReportField.DEVICE_ID,
            ReportField.BUILD,
            ReportField.BRAND,
            ReportField.DEVICE_FEATURES,
            ReportField.PACKAGE_NAME,
            ReportField.REPORT_ID,
            ReportField.STACK_TRACE,
    },
    mode = NOTIFICATION_TYPE(TOAST,DIALOG,NOTIFICATION)
    resToastText = R.string.crash_text_toast)

    public class MyApplication extends Application {
     @Override
            protected void attachBaseContext(Context base) {
                super.attachBaseContext(base);
                // Initialization of ACRA
                ACRA.init(this);
            }
    }

Where AUTH_USERNAME and AUTH_PASSWORD are the credentials of your desired backends.

Step 4: Define the Application class in AndroidManifest.xml

<application
       android:name=".MyApplication">
       <service></service>
       <activity></activity>
       <receiver></receiver>
</application>

Step 5: Make sure you have internet permission to receive the report from crashed application

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>

In case if you want to send the silent report to the backend then just use the below method to achieve it.

ACRA.getErrorReporter().handleSilentException(e);
