To set up team ownership in the Instabug dashboard, you will need to go through a couple of steps. Team ownership will help ensure every crash gets assigned to the corresponding team. Assignation can be done either manually or automatically. First, Teams are created on the account level. Then, they are automatically assigned through team definitions. These steps will ensure you create the best possible team definitions. This will automatically route the issues related to each team within your organization. It will enable you to then prioritize issues related to your team and get alerted about them.
The first step of team ownership is creating the team using the following steps.
To create a team, you will go through “Account management” (on the organizational level) at the top right corner of the dashboard
Then, from the left list choose “Teams”, then “Create a team”
Choose the most suitable Team name, example "Payment"
The following steps show how you can leverage team ownership. First, you would need to create the team on the organizational level. Next, you will need to define each team using the path/package or filename they are responsible for. Each team can then have issues related to them routed to them automatically. They can also prioritize their issue through filtering their team's issues only. Last, these teams can get alerted on their favorite tool, so they can be alerted whenever an issue occurs.
- Team Definition
To define the team, you will need to go to “Settings” (on the app level) from the bottom of the sidebar (on the left)
Then, choose “Team ownership”, then "Create Definition"
Choose the team that you created. For example, “Payment” Team
Start adding paths/packages and filenames to define the team by choosing the condition
- Path (iOS)/Package (Android)
For Path/Package, you have 2 conditions to choose from
- Matches any of
- Don't match any of
NOTE: Whenever you type the path/package you need to press Enter in order to lock it in
For Filename, you have 4 conditions to choose from
- Equals any of
- Doesn't equal any of
- Contains any of
- Doesn’t contain any of
NOTE: Whenever you type the filename you need to press Enter in order to lock it in
When setting up the definition, Instabug supports partial matching of paths using the match condition (not case sensitive), let's take a look at some examples:
Actual Crash Path: instabug/crashes/list/singleCrash
- instabug//crashes - contains an extra slash in the middle
- /instabug/crashes - contains an extra slash before instabug
- com/instabug/crashes/list/singleCrash/ - contains an extra slash after singleCrash
- instabug/crashes/list/singleCrash/Occurrence - contains an extra sub-path
- instabug/cr/list - Instabug does not match partial words (cr and crashes in this case)
- crashes/instabug - path is written in a wrong order
When setting up the definition, Instabug supports partial matching of package names using the match condition (not case sensitive), let's take a look at some examples:
Sample Package: com.instabug.crashes.list.singleCrash
- com..instabug.crashes - contains an extra dot in the middle
- .com.instabug.crashes - contains an extra dot before com
- com.instabug.crashes.list.singleCrash. - contains an extra dot after singleCrash
- crashes.list.singleCrash.Occurrence - actual path does not contain 'Occurrence'
- instabug.cr.list - Instabug does not match partial words (cr and crashes in this case)
- crashes.instabug - package is written in a wrong order
You can also assign the team manually from within the crash itself without defining it.
Go to crashes from the left sidebar of the dashboard and then click on the crash that does not have a team assigned to it
Navigate to the right sidebar “Actions” and change the Team to the corresponding team. For example, choosing the “Payments Team”
Prioritizing crashes related to your team can be done through the Team filter at the top bar of the "Crashes" main page
Select your team from the dropdown list, you can even search by the team’s name. For example, “Payment” Team
As you can see below, you can prioritize the crashes related to your team only and get more granular with the options to filter. For example, Payment Team wants to focus on crashes seen in a certain app version. Also, you will be able to save those filters and you can access them from the right side of the filter bar.
If you’d like to get alerted as soon as you receive any crash related to your Team, you will be able to do that through our “Alerts and Rules” engine.
Go to “Alerts and Rules” and "Create" a new Alert
Regressing crash assigned to team “Payment”
Choose the condition (Regression) you want to be alerted to whenever it is assigned to “Payment” team
For more details on the different use cases of Alerting, please refer to Alerts & Rules product guides.
Then, Forward it to your favorite tool (Ex: Slack, MS Teams, PagerDuty, … etc). Thus, Payment Team will be notified about this regression through that tool.
For more details on the different integrations that is supported, please refer to Instabug's Integrations Docs
You can assign this Alert/Rule to a certain team through "Owned by" section at the bottom of the rule. This enables you to figure out who to contact if there was a problem with any of the Alerts/Rules
If the Alert/Rule does not have a team assigned to it, then by default the value will be Unassigned
Insights will help you get a closer look on the performance of each and every Team. To navigate to the insights you will need to go to the crashes on the left sidebar of the dashboard and go through the crashes insights at the top right corner
These are the insights you see before choosing a certain Team, now select the team whose performance you would like to monitor. For example, "Payment".
Now you can see all the related information to the “Payments Team” only. This will highlight the number of crashing sessions, the number of non-fatal, the number of OOMs or ANRs and a graph of occurrences over a certain period of time. All of this information will be related to the chosen team.
