The necessary steps to update your local clone are described by Scott Hanselman on his Blog We encourage you to rename your default branch in your forks too.

Getting Started

This project is a fastlane plugin. To get started with fastlane-plugin-dynatrace, add it to your project by running:

fastlane add_plugin dynatrace

Dynatrace Managed

If the installation is on version 1.195 or earlier the Symbolication Client has to be manually download and specified (dtxDssClientPath), else it's fetched and updated automatically. A matching version can be downloaded manually with this link https://api.mobileagent.downloads.dynatrace.com/sprint-latest-dss-client/xyz by replacing xyz with the 3-digit sprint version of your Dynatrace Managed installation.

About the Dynatrace fastlane plugin

This plugin allows you to decode and upload symbol files (iOS) or just upload obfuscation mapping files (Android) to Dynatrace. You can also use it to first download your latest dSYM files from AppStore Connect if you use Bitcode.

Action: dynatrace_process_symbols

Supported Platforms ios, android

Is your app Bitcode enabled?

Only applies for apps distributed via the AppStore or TestFlight.

If your app is bitcode enabled, then the dSYMs that are generated during the Xcode build are not the dSYMs you want to upload to Dynatrace. This is because Apple recompiles the application on their servers, generating new dSYM files in the process. These newly generated dSYM files need to be downloaded from AppStore Connect, then processed and uploaded to Dynatrace.


There is a time gap between the application being uploaded to AppStore Connect and the dSYM files to be ready. So you have to introduce some "wait" time in your CI to accomodate for this. Unfortunately, Apple does not specify how long this time is. But the minimum is 600 seconds (10 minutes). However, we recommend 1800 seconds (30 mins) as this ensures the symbols are ready for download. You can however increase this timeout if needed.

Notice that this timeout is only the maximum waiting time. If the symbol files are processed and are ready sooner, it will execute sooner and will not wait for the whole duration of the timeout.

Automatically downloading dSYMs and using AppFile for authentication


app_identifier("com.yourcompany.yourappID") # The bundle identifier of your app
apple_id("[email protected]") # Your Apple email address


lane :downloadAndProcessBitcodeSymbols do

    # Define variables
    version = <the version on AppStoreConnect (CFBundleShortVersionString)>
    build = <your uploaded build number (CFBundleVersion)>
    symbols_wait_timeout = 1800

    # Get Bitcode dsyms from AppStoreConnect and store locally
        wait_for_dsym_processing: true,
        wait_timeout: symbols_wait_timeout,
        app_identifier: "<your application bundle id (CFBundleIdentifier)>",
        version: version,
        build_number: build

    #Pass the dsyms to Dynatrace for processing
        symbolsfile: lane_context[SharedValues::DSYM_PATHS][0],
        appId: "<your Dynatrace application ID>",
        apitoken: "<your Dynatrace API token>",
        os: "ios",
        versionStr: build,
        version: version,
        server: "<your dynatrace environment URL>",

If you are NOT using Bitcode, or if you have already downloaded your new symbols from AppStore Connect manually.

Supply all parameters locally

    appId: "your DT appID",
    apitoken: "your DT API token",
    os: "<ios> or <android>",
    bundleId: "com.yourcompany.yourApp",
    versionStr: "1.0",
    version: "1",
    symbolsfile: "<path to my app>.app.dSYM",
    server: "<your dynatrace environment URL>",
    debugMode: true)

List of all Parameters

Key Description default value
username The username or the AppleID to use to download the dSYMs. You can also store this in your AppFile as "apple_id and it will be automatically retrieved."
dtxDssClientPath DEPRECATED The full path to your DTXDssClient. For example, it could be ./ios/agent/DTXDssClient. The DTXDssClient is downloaded and updated automatically, unless this key is set.
action The action to perform. upload/decode upload
appID The app ID you get from your Dynatrace WebUI
os The OperatingSystem of the symbol files. Either "ios" or "android"
apitoken The Dynatrace API token. It should have the correct permissions.
bundleId The CFBundlebundleId (iOS) / package (Android) of the Application. Usually in reverse com notation. Ex. com.your_company.your_app. This can also be stored in the AppFile as "app_identifier" and it will be automatically retrieved.
versionStr The CFBundleShortVersionString (iOS) / versionName (Android
version The CFBundleVersion (iOS) / versionCode (Android). This will also be used for dSYM download.
symbolsfile The path to a local symbol files to be processed and uploaded. You do not need to specify that if you use downloadDsyms.
server The API endpoint for the Dynatrace environment. For example https://environmentID.live.dynatrace.com or https://dynatrace-managed.com/e/environmentID
debugMode Debug logging enabled false
