Go forward with this article and you’ll be up and running in no time. 

Method #1: Using the GUI ways to achieve the result (Windows)

This might be the easiest way to add the Stacktrace option in Android Studio, simply navigate to the files option and then you can add Stacktrace in place of command-line options and you are good to go.

File > Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Compiler

Method #2: Using the GUI ways to achieve the result (Mac)

You will get the same result as stated in method #1 above on a Mac. Only the names of certain settings are different.

Navigate to Android Studio -> Preferences-> Build, Execution, Deployment-> Compiler

The GUI Method

Note: To view the Compiler option in the newest versions of AS (2.2 and 2.3), exit the open project, go to AS begin (where the current projects are shown), and select Configure -> Preferences->Build, Execution,Deployment. Otherwise, the Compiler is hidden.

Method #3: Adding through the configurations

configurations.all {
    resolutionStrategy {
        force ''

Adding the Configurations in the Gradle

Method #4: Using the Android Studio Terminal

./gradlew assembleMyBuild --stacktrace

If you’re a fan of the Android Studio terminal then this might turn to be the best one for you as this involves using the terminal to add the Stacktrace option and achieve the required result. Input the above statement in the Android Studio’s terminal and results will start popping.

Method #5: You using fastlane? Well There’s an advantage

Just add this additional flag and you’re good to go!

   flags: "{--stacktrace}"

And that’s how you just managed to run stacktrace option!
