Send your crash reports to Breeze with HockeyApp integration

By Breeze Team on Dec 1

We have added more integrations to Breeze. When you are developing web, mobile or native applications then bugs and crashes are inevitable. With HockeyApp you can make your development easier by collecting all these issues. Now you can also send the crash reports directly to your development project in Breeze and have them assigned to developers.

What is HockeyApp ?

With HockeyApp, you can distribute beta versions on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Mac OS, collect live crash reports, get feedback from users, recruit new testers, and analyze test coverage.

Build and upload your apps to HockeyApp. Testers can now download and install them. You have full control of who can access which app. Think of it as your personal App Store for testing.

Crash reports
HockeyApp provides you with the right information at your fingertips, like symbolicated stack traces and environment details.

With HockeyApp, your testers can provide valuable feedback and suggest new features or improvements right from the app.

HockeyApp provides you with analytics about which devices and languages your testers have already covered and where you need to spend some additional testing effort for full coverage.

How to use the integration

Enabling the integration is very easy. Head over to your project and open the projects settings window. Click on the "Integrations" tab, scroll to the "HockeyApp" section and copy the URL behind "Webhook POST URL". You have to configure a POST hook in HockeyApp to allow Breeze receive commit messages. Setting up the POST hook in HockeyApp:

  • Click on your app on the HockeyApp dashboard.
  • Click on Manage App > Webhooks.
  • Click on Create Webook.
  • Paste the Webhook POST URL from Breeze
  • Set the event checkboxes as desired.
  • Confirm with Save.

Now the hook is created and Breeze is ready to receive the crash reports. When your app crashes then Breeze creates one task in the first task list per crash group.
