You can download our iOS notifier here: https://github.com/airbrake/airbrake-ios
Airbrake can be set to ignore errors that come from older versions of your application. This is most useful when releasing new versions of iOS or Android apps, because not everyone will upgrade the app, but you don't want to see reports from errors you've already fixed. NOTE: As of this writing, only the iOS Notifier supports reporting the app version.
There are two main components to the app version tracking: The Current Version and the Notifier Version.
- Current Version is the version you have listed in
Airbrake as the version you want to get errors about. As an
example, let's say we're setting this to
- Notifier Version is the version that the iOS notifier
is reporting for the app the error is coming from. Let's say you
had an error in
1.0.0. When that app has an error and tells Airbrake about it, it will be ignored. After all, it's an old error and you've probably fixed it. But when an error comes in for
1.0.1, we'll treat it as normal, because it's an error in the current version.
If your app's version works in the general pattern of
major.minor.patch, then we can also track higher
versions, as well. If it does not (for example, if you use git
commit SHAs, or codenames), then we will only be able to report on
If you have a Current App Version defined, and the notifier reports no app version of its own (probably because it's a release from before App Versions were introduced), Airbrake will ignore that error as though it were an old version.
See Examples below for more details.
Step 1: click on the "Edit this project" button in the left sidebar.
Step 2: fill in the "Lastest App Version" field with the version for the current release you have in the app store.
Step 3: click "Save Project"!
Here are a few examples going over how Airbrake will handle various versions.
