Send Android App Logs to Loggly

You can send your Android logs using our timber-loggly package. It sends logs directly from your application to Loggly using the HTTP/S Event API. For alternatives, please see the Advanced Options section.

Android Logging Setup

1. Add timber-loggly jar

Add a dependency for the timber-loggly jar from the Maven repository or from GitHub. The Maven repository has code snippets to add the dependencies for many common package managers.

For example, if you are using Maven, then add this to the dependencies section of your pom.xml file.

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.github.tony19</groupId>
  <artifactId>timber-loggly</artifactId>
  <version>1.0.1</version>
</dependency>

2. Configure timber-loggly

Plant a LogglyTree with your authorization token from Loggly.

import android.app.Application;
import com.github.tony19.timber.loggly.LogglyTree;
import timber.log.Timber;
public class ExampleApp extends Application {
  @Override
  public void onCreate() {
    super.onCreate();
    final String LOGGLY_TOKEN = "TOKEN";
    Timber.plant(new LogglyTree(LOGGLY_TOKEN));
  }
} 

Use Timber API to log an event via LogglyTree

Timber.tag("android");
Timber.i("hello world");

3. Send Test Events

Run your application to send test events to Loggly.

4. Verify Events

Search Loggly for events with the android tag over the past 20 minutes. It may take a few minutes to index the event. If it doesn’t work, see the troubleshooting section below.

If you don’t see any data show up in the verification step, then check for these common problems.

Check timber-loggly:

  • Wait a few minutes in case indexing needs to catch up
  • See our HTTP Troubleshooting Guide to verify HTTP events are being sent to Loggly.
