What is the path for crash dumps in HoloLens 2 device?

Dhivya Alagesan 1 Reputation point

We have been developing a UWP app in Unity. The app runs on HL2. We are able to download the crash dumps via Windows Device Portal. However, for automating crash upload we require the path of the crash dumps.

Could anyone tell us how to get the path of the crash dumps on the HL2 device programmatically?

    Hello, Welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

    for automating crash upload we require the path of the crash dumps.

    I believe what you want is a way to retrieve application crash dumps programmatically.
    If so, you can use Windows Device Portal REST API to do that: First, call /api/debug/dump/usermode/dumps to get the list of all crash dumps for sideloaded apps, and then, call /api/debug/dump/usermode/crashdump and take “packageFullname ” and "fileName " as argument to obtain the crash dump. For more information please refer to:Dump collection
