[Firebase Mobile] Incompatibility issue with other Firebase plugin (Analytic, Crashlytic) in MABS 8.0

Hello OS Forums,

I want to ask is the newest version of Firebase Mobile plugin for the MABS 8.0 builds is not compatible with any other official OS supported Firebase plugins (such as Perfomance Monitoring, Analytics)?

Because we've tried to re-build on our currently on-boarding mobile application it failed to generate the native platform with the newest MABS 8.0. We had a requirement to implement Firebase performance monitoring feature to our mobile app. And then because MABS 7.2 will be deprecated at the end of this month we have to upgrade to the latest one, but unfortunately we found this issue. The build log detail:

Any clue or workaround to consolidate this issue? We've been using this plugin for the past year and it's been a solid work, but now we need the performance monitor feature for our customer and keep the push notification feature as well.

Thanks before.



This plugin already includes performance monitoring and the latest version works with MABS 8. Is there anything in the OS supported version that you would like to have in this one?

Best regards,


Hello David,

Correct me if I wrong but in the latest version (1.0.11) the performance monitoring is not supported anymore and when I try to run the process (via a real mobile device) the mobile app got crashed. That is why we've tried to use other Firebase plugin for the MABS 8.0 builds. This is the original node logic flow inside the firebase mobile (v1.0.11) module:

All the client actions were redirected to the False branch, and then I try to modified the node to enable the function, but whenever the process is being executed the app always got crash (tested on Android 12). Hence why it's been set to false

Hi, any news on this compatibility issue? We looking forward to this because the MABS 7.2 will be deprecated in 24 March 2022 and if we have to upgrade the MABS the performance monitoring would not be functioning anymore.. thank you, any news will be appreciated :)
