Welcome to Firebase!
Now that you've migrated your app to Firebase, here are a couple things you'll want to learn about and set up for Firebase:
Find out how you can leverage Google Analytics and Crashlytics together in your project, or start using Google Analytics right away in your iOS or Android app.
Important: To view crash-free users metrics, you need Google Analytics in your app.
Configure your notification settings for both Firebase and Fabric.
Invite your team so that they can start using Firebase and access your migrated app in the Firebase console.
If you have specific questions about the migration or need troubleshooting help, visit the Troubleshooting guide.
What happened when you migrated?
For the apps that you linked, your Crashlytics data now appears only in the Firebase Crashlytics dashboard. The linking process does not involve any changes to the legacy Fabric SDK.
Discover Firebase Crashlytics
Find all your Crashlytics data in the Firebase Crashlytics dashboard (in the Firebase console).
Firebase Crashlytics offers several new features:
Use Google Analytics breadcrumbs (requires Google Analytics).
Export your Crashlytics data to BigQuery, then analyze it using BigQuery and the Crashlytics Data Studio template.
How Google Analytics helps Crashlytics
Google Analytics is Firebase's analytics engine that gives you access to powerful insights into your data. Google Analytics lets you set custom and predefined events, similar to Fabric's Answers. When you start using Analytics, you unlock new capabilities in addition to features you were already using in Fabric:
Use Google Analytics events like you used Fabric Answers.
Track your app's crash-free users metrics in the Firebase Crashlytics dashboard.
Set custom alerts for your app's stability with velocity alerts.
How do I start using Analytics?
Visit the Start using Google Analytics help page to learn how to install and initialize the SDK in your iOS or Android app. After you add Analytics to your app, visit the Google Analytics documentation to start setting up events.
Keep the following in mind:
After you initialize the Google Analytics SDK in your app, there can be a delay of a few hours before data appears in the Firebase Crashlytics dashboard.
Firebase can only use analytics data collected by Google Analytics. So, for your migrated apps, your historical analytics data from Fabric Answers cannot migrate to Firebase.
Unlike your crash data, your analytics data will start from a blank slate and the Firebase console will only show data collected after installing and initializing the Google Analytics SDK.
After you switch your Answers events to Google Analytics events, we recommend removing your Answers events from your app's code.
Monitor your Latest Release
With Google Analytics initialized in your app, you can monitor the stability and metrics of your current builds in the Latest Release page in the Firebase console.
Access the Latest Release page a couple different ways:
In your Firebase Crashlytics dashboard, click the link in the Event trends card.
In the Firebase console, go to the Analytics section in the left navigation pane, then click Latest Release.
Configure your notification settings
Now that you've migrated, you'll start getting emails from Firebase. To configure your notification settings:
For notifications, manage your Firebase alert subscriptions for Crashlytics via Alerts > Alert Settings
(click the bell icon in the top-right corner of the Firebase console).
For integrations, visit Project settings > Integrations to set up notifications for Jira, Slack, and PagerDuty.
Invite your team members
Now that you've migrated to Firebase, invite your team so that they can start using Firebase and access your migrated app in the Firebase console.
From the Firebase console, visit Project settings > Users & permissions to add teammates as members of your Firebase project.
