Documentation

Datadog SDK for Android

A client-side Android library to interact with Datadog.

Getting Started

Log Collection

See the dedicated Datadog Android Log Collection documentation to learn how to forward logs from your Android application to Datadog.

Real User Monitoring

See the dedicated Datadog Android RUM Collection documentation to learn how to send RUM data from your Android application to Datadog.

Log Integrations

Timber

If your existing codebase is using Timber, you can forward all those logs to Datadog automatically by using the dedicated library.

RUM Integrations

Coil

If you use Coil to load images in your application, take a look at Datadog's dedicated library.

Fresco

If you use Fresco to load images in your application, take a look at Datadog's dedicated library.

Glide

If you use Glide to load images in your application, take a look at our dedicated library.

Picasso

If you use Picasso, let it use your OkHttpClient, and you'll get RUM and APM information about network requests made by Picasso.

        val picasso = Picasso.Builder(context)
                .downloader(OkHttp3Downloader(okHttpClient))
                //
                .build()
        Picasso.setSingletonInstance(picasso)

Retrofit

If you use Retrofit, let it use your OkHttpClient, and you'll get RUM and APM information about network requests made with Retrofit.

        val retrofitClient = Retrofit.Builder()
                .client(okHttpClient)
                //
                .build()

Apollo (GraphQL)

If you use Apollo, let it use your OkHttpClient, and you'll get RUM and APM information about all the queries performed through Apollo client.

        val apolloClient =  ApolloClient.builder()
                 .okHttpClient(okHttpClient)
                 .serverUrl(<APOLLO_SERVER_URL>)
                 .build()

Looking up your logs

When you open your console in Datadog, navigate to the Logs section. In the search bar, type source:android. This filters your logs to only show the ones coming from Android applications.

Looking up your spans

When you open your console in Datadog, navigate to the APM section. In the list of services, you'll see all your android applications (by default the service name will match your application's package name, e.g.: com.example.android). You'll then be able to see all the traces started from your application.

Looking up your RUM events

When you open your console in Datadog, navigate to the RUM Explorer section. In the side bar, you can then select your application and explore Sessions, Views, Actions, Errors and Resources.
