In this post, we’ll provide an overview of tracking recurring errors and pinpointing bugs with readable reports, as well as alerting on critical errors with Crash Reporting for React Native.
Track recurring errors and pinpoint bugs with readable reports
Once you’ve set up the RUM React Native SDK, Error Tracking will be enabled by default, and the Error Tracking Explorer will provide a detailed overview of any and all errors in your application. Error Tracking enables you to easily identify important application errors by automatically grouping closely related errors into issues.
RUM provides further insight, giving you detailed visibility into the precise context in which any errors have occurred within the affected user sessions.
The Sessions & Replays view allows you to home in on errors and extensively slice and dice error data by isolating facets. In the context of React Native applications, filtering by the
error.source_type facet can be particularly illuminating, since errors in this context may stem from a variety of sources.
Alert on critical errors with Crash Reporting
Vigilance toward crashes, which are a major source of user frustration and churn, is critically important for developers of mobile applications. By enabling Crash Reporting in RUM, you can help to ensure a timely and thoroughgoing response to the most urgent errors in your React Native applications. You can configure Error Tracking Monitors to detect and alert you to new and escalating issues. And RUM Application Overviews can provide valuable insights into crash data to help you determine the precise queries on which to build the most effective monitors.
