Get the stack trace for an error in your desktop application

Use this method in the Microsoft Store analytics API to get the stack trace for an error in a desktop application that you have added to the Windows Desktop Application program. This method can only download the stack trace for an error that occurred in the last 30 days. Stack traces are also available in the Health report for desktop applications in Partner Center.

Before you can use this method, you must first use the get details for an error in your desktop application method to retrieve the ID hash of the CAB file that is associated with the error for which you want to retrieve the stack trace.

Prerequisites

To use this method, you need to first do the following:

  • If you have not done so already, complete all the prerequisites for the Microsoft Store analytics API.
  • Obtain an Azure AD access token to use in the request header for this method. After you obtain an access token, you have 60 minutes to use it before it expires. After the token expires, you can obtain a new one.
  • Get the ID hash of the CAB file that is associated with the error for which you want to retrieve the stack trace. To get this value, use the get details for an error in your desktop application method to retrieve details for a specific error in your app, and use the cabIdHash value in the response body of that method.
