How this extension works

By using this extension, you can create GitHub Issues on a selected repository, and attach required labels, triggered by new Crashlytics alerts.

This extension streamlines the creation of content outlined in the Firebase Alerts triggers section of the official Firebase documentation. It eliminates the need to manually create service accounts or configure Cloud Functions. Just install the extension, and with a single click, you’re all set up.

The features of this extension are as follows:

  • Automatically create a GitHub issue if a new Crashlytics issue occurs using the GitHub API.
  • Allow developers to set multiple required labels (e.g., bugs, crashlytics) for issues.
Crashlytics Issue GitHub Issue

Supported crashlytics alerts

  • crashlytics.newFatalIssue: An event is sent when an application experiences a new fatal crash (not for any subsequent, identical events).
  • crashlytics.newNonfatalIssue: An event is sent when an application experiences a new non-fatal error (not for any subsequent, identical events).
  • crashlytics.newAnrIssue: An event is sent when an application experiences a new Application Not Responding (ANR) error (not for any subsequent, identical events).

Not supported (Future work)

  • crashlytics.regression: An event is sent when an application experiences a crash for an issue marked as closed for a previous application version.
  • crashlytics.stabilityDigest: An event is sent when there is a notification of the top trending issues in Crashlytics.
  • crashlytics.velocity: An event is sent when a single issue is responsible for causing a significant number of application sessions to crash.

Additional setup

Before installing this extension, make sure that you’ve created a personal access token in your GitHub account to access the GitHub API(if your repository is organization, use GitHub Apps).

Two approaches exist for creating access tokens, but Fine-grained personal access tokens are recommended.


When creating a PAT (Personal Access Token), you need to give it the following permission:
repository permissions > Issues > Read and write

When you use Firebase Extensions, you’re only charged for the underlying resources that you use. A paid-tier billing plan is only required if the extension uses a service that requires a paid-tier plan, for example calling to a Google Cloud Platform API or making outbound network requests to non-Google services. All Firebase services offer a free tier of usage. Learn more about Firebase billing.
