Debug a live UWP app

Hi,

When the users install our Windows 10 UWP app from Microsoft Store, if they face any issues when using the app, is there a way we can get a debug log or crash report etc to figure out what went wrong?
What is the standard way of identifying issues in a live UWP app?

Thanks,
Madhu

Hi,

I would recommend that you take a look at the App Center analytics SDK. This SDK gives you the ability to add logging and other analytics capabilities to your app that feeds back in real time to Azure.

App Center Analytics
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/appcenter/analytics/

Events Metrics
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/appcenter/analytics/event-metrics

Access analytics data using Store services
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/monetize/access-analytics-data-using-windows-store-services

I hope this helps,

James

I second that. AppCenter rocks big time!

I'm using:

  • GoogleAnalyticsSDK to measure total audience and events

  • TelegramBot to send crash and some important exceptions (instant to your phone)

  • Sentry is another good options (but not totally free), easy to integrate with some lines of code
