recordHandledException (Android SDK API)

Syntax

NewRelic.recordHandledException(Exception $exceptionToHandle)
NewRelic.recordHandledException(Exception $exceptionToHandle, Map of String, Object $exceptionAttributes)

Records a handled exception. Optionally takes map with additional attributes showing context.

Requirements

Agent version 5.15.0 or higher.

Description

Use recordHandledException() within a try{...} catch(){...} block to help understand how often your application is throwing exceptions, and under what conditions.

  1. Import the New Relic SDK API for Android:

    import com.newrelic.agent.android.NewRelic;
  2. Record an exception in your app code, and optionally pass in a map of contextual attributes:

    NewRelic.recordHandledException(Exception $exceptionToHandle, Map of String, Object $exceptionAttributes);

In addition to associated custom attributes, the events will also have associated session attributes. You can view event data in the mobile monitoring UI in the Crash event trail, or via NRQL.

For general information on using the New Relic Android SDK API, see the usage guide.
