2. Crash Analytics

2.1. Exception Diagnostics

With exception diagnostics you can see the exception call stack, exception message, exception type name, file name and line number which caused a crash in the app.
Please note that the stacktrace of UnobservedTaskException could be empty as a result of the handler not passing in the exception.
