    import Updraft
  2. Start the SDK with your "SDK Key" and "App Key":

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
    	Updraft.shared.start(sdkKey: "YOUR_SDK_KEY", appKey: "YOUR_APP_KEY")
    	return true


  1. Import Updraft module in AppDelegate

    @import Updraft;
  2. Start the SDK with your "SDK Key" and "App Key":

    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
    		[[Updraft shared] startWithSdkKey:@"YOUR_SDK_KEY" appKey:@"YOUR_APP_KEY" isAppStoreRelease: false];
    		return YES;


  • sdkKey: Your sdk key obtained on Updraft

  • appKey: You app key obtained on Updraft

Auto Update

Auto Update functionality can be enabled/disabled on in your app edit menu.

AutoUpdate work by comparing the build number of the app installed on the user's device and the app uploaded on GetUpdraft.

A prompt is displayed to the user if his installed version is lower than the version on Updraft. Thus, the build number must be incremented for each new build release to trigger the auto-update process.

Micro version comparison is supported, for example version is greater than version

Feedback & Bug Reporting

Feedback functionality can be enabled/disabled on in your app edit menu.

A prompt is shown to the user to inform him of the change of state of the feedback functionality.

If enabled, the user is explained how he can give feedback. User can take a screenshot to give a feedback.

Advanced setup


To check if data is send properly to Updraft and also see some additional SDK log data in the console, you can set different log levels.

To change the log level, add the following line before starting the SDK:


Updraft.shared.logLevel = .info


[Updraft shared].logLevel = LogLevelInfo;

Default level: warning => Only warnings and errors will be printed.

Base URL

If you have your own instance of Updraft, set this property to the base URL of your instance, before starting the SDK.


Updraft.shared.baseUrl = "https://your_base_url/"


[Updraft shared].baseUrl = @"https://your_base_url/";
