Symbol Files
Symbol files are a critical component of getting useful data from your crashes. Windows, Breakpad, Crashpad, Mac, and some JavaScript applications require symbol files to be uploaded to generate call stacks containing function names and line numbers. The symbol upload process can be automated as part of your build. Symbols are required by many of our SDKs and can be uploaded and managed via the Symbols page.
For additional information regarding Symbol files, please visit the documentation specific to your application's platform

What are Symbols?

Symbols are files that contain information to map information in the minidump file to file names and line numbers in source code.

Using Symbols

For Windows C++ and .NET applications, symbols are files with .exe, .pdb and .dll extensions and can be uploaded automatically via SendPdbs.
For Crashpad applications, symbols are files with .sym extensions and can be uploaded automatically via symupload.
For macOS applications, symbols are files with .app and .dSYM extensions and can be uploaded automatically in a post-archive build action.
For TypeScript and JavaScript applications, symbols are files with a .js.map extension and can be uploaded automatically via @bugsplat/symbol-upload.
