Using Marketing Cloud SDK 8.0.5 I have this crash in some devices:

Do you know what could be going on?


We have implemented the workaround suggested, but the crash is not fixed yet. We are using the code:

SFMCSdk.requestSdk { sdk ->
            sdk.mp {
                sdk.identity.run { ... // code using the Identity// ... }

This is the only place of our code when we call the function SFMCSdk.requestSdk, we have other places where we call the function MarketingCloudSdk.requestSdk, we don't know if we need to change it as well.

Do you have any clue why the crash is still there?

Thanks for your support.

We were experiencing this crash, and it turned out we were configuring the SDK in multiple locations. Depending on timing, sometimes we would be trying to use the listener passed to SFMCSdk.configure() while a subsequent configure() was in progress. Eliminating the extra configure() calls fixed the issue.

  • This could be the reason as we are calling this function twice, I will take a look to call it only once and see if the bug disappears as in your case. thanks for your comment.

This typically happens when you're initializing the SFMCSdk, but then directly accessing the MarketingCloudSdk. Please use:

SFMCSdk.requestSdk {
  it.mp { push ->
    // push.doStuff

    Yep I'm calling requestSDK and using SFMCSdk directly (it in your sample code). I'll do it as you tell me. Thanks Bill.

    We have no other reports of this. Try updating to 8.0.7 and/or open a support case.

    jfyi we released a new version of our app, but we need some time to check if that solves the crash

I updated to the newest version of marketing cloud, handled exceptions, refactored the application imagining it to be the moment of calling the sdk, but still without success.

Crash can only be reproduced on some devices with developer mode enabled, app in background.

Any idea?
