This guide contains instructions for the latest version of the Firebase Crashlytics SDK. If you migrated your app from Fabric, make sure it's been upgraded and no longer uses the deprecated legacy Fabric SDK.

Use Google Analytics to get metrics for crash reports

Google Analytics is Firebase's analytics engine that gives you access to powerful insights into your data. Google Analytics provides the same features you had in Fabric Answers and allows you to integrate your events data with other powerful services, such as Firebase Crashlytics and Firebase Cloud Messaging. This page describes how to add Google Analytics to your app after migrating it to Firebase.

Step 1: Add a Firebase configuration file

  1. Open your Project Settings. In the Your apps card, select the bundle ID of the app for which you need a config file.
  2. Click Download GoogleService-Info.plist to obtain your Firebase iOS config file (GoogleService-Info.plist).

    • You can download your Firebase iOS config file again at any time.

    • Make sure the config filename is not appended with additional characters, like (2).

  3. Move your config file into the root of your Xcode project. If prompted, select to add the config file to all targets.

If you have multiple bundle IDs in your project, you must associate each bundle ID with a registered app in the Firebase console so that each app can have its own GoogleService-Info.plist file.

Step 2: Add the Analytics SDK to your app

  1. Add the dependency for Firebase to your Podfile:
    pod 'Firebase/Analytics'
  2. Run pod install and open the created .xcworkspace file.
  3. Import the Firebase module in your UIApplicationDelegate:


    import Firebase


    @import Firebase;
  4. Configure a FirebaseApp shared instance, typically in your app's application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method:


    // Use Firebase library to configure APIs


    // Use Firebase library to configure APIs
    [FIRApp configure];

Your app is now set up to use Google Analytics.
