Appdome Auto Diagnostics Logs for Troubleshooting Secured Apps
Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features to mobile apps.
Appdome’s no-code mobile app security platform offers mobile developers, DevSec, and security professionals a convenient and reliable way to protect Android and iOS apps without coding. When a user clicks “Build My App,” Appdome leverages a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of security plugins, and an adaptive code generation engine that matches the correct required plugins to the development environment, frameworks, and methods in each app.
Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites to build secured apps. There is no SDK and no library to manually code or implement in the app. The Appdome technology adds the relevant standards, frameworks, stores, and logic to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.
Users can build their apps with diagnostic logs turn on and use Appdome Diagnostics Logs for troubleshooting their secured apps.

In order to extract diagnostic app logs from your device, you’ll need:
3 Easy Steps to Use Appdome Diagnostic Logs for Troubleshooting Secured Apps
When configuring your Fused app with Appdome you’ll find the troubleshooting section at the very bottom of the page.
Activate the Diagnostic Logs toggle, then continue Building your app.
The two images below show the Diagnosic Logs section in Android (first image) and in iOS.
Activate the Ability to Send Logs Directly From Your Device
The Diagnostic Logs toggle adds diagnostic logging to your device console log. You can use Xcode, Android Debug Bridge, or other computer programs to view the logs.
To make it easier for you to share the logs with us or your colleagues, Appdome has two other options to extract the logs from the Device:
- Tap to upload logs (iOS) or Shake to upload logs (Android)
This feature enables fast and easy sharing of logs from the application by shaking the phone.
After shaking the phone with the application open, a dialog box appears with a diagnostics file attached to it. Within this dialog box you are requested to choose how to share the last recorded logs. Easier sharing of diagnostic information enables faster debugging as well as faster problem resolution, which results in a smoother workflow.
- Tap to email logs (iOS) or Shake to email logs (Android)
This feature enables fast and easy sharing of logs from the application to an email address by shaking the mobile device.
After shaking the phone with the application open, the last logs recorded will be sent to the email of the user who fused the app on Appdome. Easier sharing of diagnostic information enables faster debugging as well as faster problem resolution, resulting in a smoother workflow.
Use the upload logs version if your device doesn’t have an email client or built application that restricts the use of email applications. Use the email logs version if your built application restricts connections. The two options work well together.
