Debug symbols provide information that Sentry displays on the Issue Details page to help you triage an issue. We offer a range of methods to provide Sentry with debug symbols.
With default settings, complete stack traces are available in your Java/Kotlin error, out of the box, unless you use enableProguardInReleaseBuilds. In this case, you need to upload the ProGuard/R8 mapping files generated by the Android Gradle Plugin, so Sentry can show you proper stack traces.
Errors raised from the native layer in Android apps require certain debug information files to be uploaded. For example, dwarf debug files need to be uploaded for an Android app with NDK support.
Upload the Android ProGuard/R8 mapping files and native symbols by the recommended method of using our Gradle integration.
Upload the Android ProGuard/R8 mapping files and native symbols manually by using
sentry-cli upload-proguard and upload-dif.
