Crash on UserService:logout sync method

(Joshua Parmenter) #1

calling logout on the UserService occasionally crashes the application with the iOS SDK (version 4.0.15).
Relevant part of the crash dump is here:

Hi Joshua,

In the sources I see this line:

[backendless.headers removeObjectForKey:BACKENDLESS_USER_TOKEN];

But I’m not sure how executing it leads to a crash.
Are you able to reproduce it?

(Olha Danylova) #3

I’ve checked and everything works fine.
If you’re able to reproduce it, please share it with us (you can send the achieved project to

Regards, Olga

I forgot the source was available! Good to look at, thanks for the link.

I’ll try to put together a minimal reproducer. to send your way. I agree - that line (and the lines right around it) don’t seem like they would cause any problems. The release of ‘self.currentUser’ is the only thing that may be an issue? I don’t really see how it could be though unless the reference count is already 0 from somewhere else in the process. The stack trace doesn’t really show how that could be though (since the only other place in the Backendless code that is touched, from what I can see, is from the logout method at line 192. Just in case this shed any other light, the full stack is here from a crash I just got to happen this morning:

and my method that is calling this doesn’t do anything with references to the user either:

func logout(){
        let fbManager: FBSDKLoginManager = FBSDKLoginManager()

I’ll see if I can get you a project to try out. Thanks!

(Joshua Parmenter) #5

what is your preferred way for me to send you a zip file and instructions for testing?

(Anton Govorushkin) #6


The best option would be sending the project with instructions to


(Olha Danylova) #7

Also, please minimise your app as possible. The project should be minimal, complete and verifiable - e.g if the app crashes on logout, there shouldn’t be any code responsible for the push notifications (it requires your development team and app bundle id). It should be as simple as possible. Thanks.

(Olha Danylova) #8

Closed according to the user response in Slack.

I stripped out more from what I sent yesterday, and the crash has gone away. I’ll go through and see what triggers it when I add more in (pushes, database management, etc). Thanks! I think you can close the issue for now.

Hello Joshua,

Did you solve the problem?
