Loaded DSYM files but crashlog isn't symbolicated

I had a few crashes in my recent release of iOS apps.

Crashs in Sentry look like:

MyApp    0x00076b0c    <redacted> 
MyApp    0x000a88c4    <redacted> 
MyApp    0x000a8788    <redacted> 
Called from:    UIKit    -[UIViewController _setViewAppearState:isAnimating:]
MyApp    0x00052d44    <redacted> 

And I have an error message above the issue:

There was 1 error encountered while processing this event
A required debug symbol file was missing. 
  "image_arch": "armv7",
  "image_uuid": "dd49f285-90ab-3cbe-aa09-dc3fc65449ed",
  "message": "None",
  "image_path": "/var/containers/Bundle/Application/B67F0462-B7C1-4DE0-A6D6-65061D3C289A/MyApp.app/MyApp"

I found that I haven’t uploaded DSYM (app is using bitcode). So I downloaded dsyms and uploaded them (to Fabric and Sentry). I can see reason of the crash in Fabric but sentry shows me the very same error I pasted above.
And I can clearly see that my app’s DSYM was loaded to Sentry (in Project Settings -> Debug Information Files under my latest release) and that missing image_uuid is there (4th from the end).

It seems like Sentry doesn’t use freshly loaded DSYM files to re-symbolicate crashes which already happened.


So there is a feature called reprocessing: (Found under Project Settings > Processing Issues)

This should be on by default but please check it.
When this is enabled, events with a required dSYM will not be processed until you uploaded the required symbols.

It was off (and I’m 100% sure I never touched it). Set to On, thanks.

So, am I right that there is no way to update created issue with uploaded DSYM information? For the current issue that isn’t a problem - as I solved it, but that is huge limitation. Basically I was able to fix the issue only because Crashlytics updates crash information automatically after I uploaded DSYM.
Sentry already detects that symbols are missing. I believe it can go through all issues with missing symbols and update them after symbols are loaded. Or at least to have manual way to refresh crash info for a certain event after symbols are uploaded.

So the thing is, we made it on by default sometime back in 2017, at first it was opt in and if your account is older than early 2017 this option will be off.

Sadly, we are not able to re-symbolicate crashes after they are processed without this feature turned on due to our internal immutable event structure.

So you should be safe from now on but old crashes/events can no longer be symbolicated.

Just a quick note that I’m in an account that was created just this year, and that option was off by default for me - given the extreme pain that ensues from having a crash but not being able to re-run symbolication after uploading Dsym files, the option should probably be removed and permanently set to on.

Also that settings page claims there are no processing issues while on the page with my application crash I have two reported issues in processing the crash, so that warning seems disconnected from what is really happening with the logs…
