All you need to do is to initialize Xamarin integration by calling SentryXamarin.Init, and, it's recommended to start Sentry Xamarin SDK as early as possible, for an example, the start of OnCreate on MainActivity for Android, and, the top of FinishedLaunching on AppDelegate for iOS)

SentryXamarin.Init(options =>
    options.Dsn = "__YOUR__DSN__";

If your app uses Xamarin.Forms you can also use the package Sentry.Xamarin.Forms and initialize the SDK with additional line options.AddXamarinFormsIntegration().


On your MainActivity

public class MainActivity : global::Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.FormsAppCompatActivity
    protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
        SentryXamarin.Init(options =>
            options.Dsn = "__YOUR__DSN__";


On AppDelegate.cs

public partial class AppDelegate : global::Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS.FormsApplicationDelegate
    public override bool FinishedLaunching(UIApplication app, NSDictionary options)
        SentryXamarin.Init(options =>
            options.Dsn = "__YOUR__DSN__";


On App.Xaml.cs

sealed partial class App : Application
    protected override void OnLaunched(LaunchActivatedEventArgs e)
        SentryXamarin.Init(options =>
            options.Dsn = "__YOUR__DSN__";


The package requires the following versions or newer:

  • Tizen 4.0 (for Tizen)
  • Xamarin.Android 11.0 (for Android)
  • Xamarin.iOS 10.14 (for iOS)
  • Universal Windows Platform 10.0.16299 (for UWP)
  • Xamarin.Forms (for Xamarin.Forms integration)
  • Xamarin.Essentials 1.4.0
  • Sentry 4.0.3

Changes since version 2.0.0-beta.1

Sentry Self-hosted Compatibility:
If you're using `` this change does not affect you.
This SDK version is compatible with a self-hosted version of Sentry `22.12.0` or higher. If you are using an older version of [self-hosted Sentry]( (aka on-premise), you will need to [upgrade](

Significant change in behavior:
- Setting `SentryOptions.Dsn` to `null` now throws `ArgumentNullException` during initialization. ([#2655](
- Enable `CaptureFailedRequests` by default ([#2688](
- Added `Sentry` namespace to global usings when `ImplicitUsings` is enabled ([#3043](
If you have conflicts, you can opt out by adding the following to your `csproj`:
- Transactions' spans are no longer automatically finished with the status `deadline_exceeded` by the transaction. This is now handled by the [Relay](
 - Customers self hosting Sentry must use verion 22.12.0 or later ([#3013](
- The `User.IpAddress` is now set to `{{auto}}` by default, even when sendDefaultPII is disabled ([#2981](
 - The "Prevent Storing of IP Addresses" option in the "Security & Privacy" project settings on can be used to control this instead
- The `DiagnosticLogger` signature for `LogWarning` changed to take the `exception` as the first parameter. That way it no longer gets mixed up with the TArgs. ([#2987](

API breaking Changes:
If you have compilation errors you can find the affected types or overloads missing in the changelog entries below.

Changed APIs:
- Class renamed `Sentry.User` to `Sentry.SentryUser` ([#3015](
- Class renamed `Sentry.Runtime` to `Sentry.SentryRuntime` ([#3016](
- Class renamed `Sentry.Span` to `Sentry.SentrySpan` ([#3021](
- Class renamed `Sentry.Transaction` to `Sentry.SentryTransaction` ([#3023](
- `ITransaction` has been renamed to `ITransactionTracer`. You will need to update any references to these interfaces in your code to use the new interface names ([#2731](, [#2870](
- `DebugImage` and `DebugMeta` moved to `Sentry.Protocol` namespace. ([#2815](
- `SentryClient.Dispose` is no longer obsolete ([#2842](
- `ISentryClient.CaptureEvent` overloads have been replaced by a single method accepting optional `Hint` and `Scope` parameters. You will need to pass `hint` as a named parameter from code that calls `CaptureEvent` without passing a `scope` argument. ([#2749](
- `TransactionContext` and `SpanContext` constructors were updated. If you're constructing instances of these classes, you will need to adjust the order in which you pass parameters to these. ([#2694](, [#2696](
- The `DiagnosticLogger` signature for `LogError` and `LogFatal` changed to take the `exception` as the first parameter. That way it no longer gets mixed up with the TArgs. The `DiagnosticLogger` now also receives an overload for `LogError` and `LogFatal` that accepts a message only. ([#2715](
- `Distribution` added to `IEventLike`. ([#2660](
- `StackFrame`'s `ImageAddress`, `InstructionAddress`, and `FunctionId` changed to `long?`. ([#2691](
- `DebugImage.ImageAddress` changed to `long?`. ([#2725](
- Contexts now inherit from `IDictionary` rather than `ConcurrentDictionary`. The specific dictionary being used is an implementation detail. ([#2729](
- The method used to configure a Sentry Sink for Serilog now has an additional overload. Calling `WriteTo.Sentry()` with no arguments will no longer attempt to initialize the SDK (it has optional arguments to configure the behavior of the Sink only). If you want to initialize Sentry at the same time you configure the Sentry Sink then you will need to use the overload of this method that accepts a DSN as the first parameter (e.g. `WriteTo.Sentry("")`). ([#2928](

Removed APIs:
- SentrySinkExtensions.ConfigureSentrySerilogOptions is now internal. If you were using this method, please use one of the `SentrySinkExtensions.Sentry` extension methods instead. ([#2902](
- A number of `[Obsolete]` options have been removed ([#2841](
 - `BeforeSend` - use `SetBeforeSend` instead.
 - `BeforeSendTransaction` - use `SetBeforeSendTransaction` instead.
 - `BeforeBreadcrumb` - use `SetBeforeBreadcrumb` instead.
 - `CreateHttpClientHandler` - use `CreateHttpMessageHandler` instead.
 - `ReportAssemblies` - use `ReportAssembliesMode` instead.
 - `KeepAggregateException` - this property is no longer used and has no replacement.
 - `DisableTaskUnobservedTaskExceptionCapture` method has been renamed to `DisableUnobservedTaskExceptionCapture`.
 - `DebugDiagnosticLogger` - use `TraceDiagnosticLogger` instead.
- A number of iOS/Android-specific `[Obsolete]` options have been removed ([#2856](
 - `Distribution` - use `SentryOptions.Distribution` instead.
 - `EnableAutoPerformanceTracking` - use `SetBeforeSendTransaction` instead.
 - `EnableCoreDataTracking` - use `EnableCoreDataTracing` instead.
 - `EnableFileIOTracking` - use `EnableFileIOTracing` instead.
 - `EnableOutOfMemoryTracking` - use `EnableWatchdogTerminationTracking` instead.
 - `EnableUIViewControllerTracking` - use `EnableUIViewControllerTracing` instead.
 - `StitchAsyncCode` - no longer available.
 - `ProfilingTracesInterval` - no longer available.
 - `ProfilingEnabled` - use `ProfilesSampleRate` instead.
- Obsolete `SystemClock` constructor removed, use `SystemClock.Clock` instead. ([#2856](
- Obsolete `Runtime.Clone()` removed, this shouldn't have been public in the past and has no replacement. ([#2856](
- Obsolete `SentryException.Data` removed, use `SentryException.Mechanism.Data` instead. ([#2856](
- Obsolete `AssemblyExtensions` removed, this shouldn't have been public in the past and has no replacement. ([#2856](
- Obsolete `SentryDatabaseLogging.UseBreadcrumbs()` removed, it is called automatically and has no replacement. ([#2856](
- Obsolete `Scope.GetSpan()` removed, use `Span` property instead. ([#2856](
- Obsolete `IUserFactory` removed, use `ISentryUserFactory` instead. ([#2856](, [#2840](
- `IHasMeasurements` has been removed, use `ISpanData` instead. ([#2659](
- `IHasBreadcrumbs` has been removed, use `IEventLike` instead. ([#2670](
- `ISpanContext` has been removed, use `ITraceContext` instead. ([#2668](
- `IHasTransactionNameSource` has been removed, use `ITransactionContext` instead. ([#2654](
- ([#2694](
- The unused `StackFrame.InstructionOffset` has been removed. ([#2691](
- The unused `Scope.Platform` property has been removed. ([#2695](
- The obsolete setter `Sentry.PlatformAbstractions.Runtime.Identifier` has been removed ([2764](
- `Sentry.Values<T>` is now internal as it is never exposed in the public API ([#2771](
- The `TracePropagationTarget` class has been removed, use the `SubstringOrRegexPattern` class instead. ([#2763](
- The `WithScope` and `WithScopeAsync` methods have been removed. We have discovered that these methods didn't work correctly in certain desktop contexts, especially when using a global scope. ([#2717](
 Replace your usage of `WithScope` with overloads of `Capture*` methods:
 - `SentrySdk.CaptureEvent(SentryEvent @event, Action<Scope> scopeCallback)`
 - `SentrySdk.CaptureMessage(string message, Action<Scope> scopeCallback)`
 - `SentrySdk.CaptureException(Exception exception, Action<Scope> scopeCallback)`
 // Before
 SentrySdk.WithScope(scope =>
   scope.SetTag("key", "value");
   SentrySdk.CaptureEvent(new SentryEvent());
 // After
 SentrySdk.CaptureEvent(new SentryEvent(), scope =>
   // Configure your scope here
   scope.SetTag("key", "value");
