1. A system comprising
a non-transitory memory storing instructions;
a processor configured to execute the instructions to cause the system to:
obtain an indication that an application that is in use on a user device has changed state;
in response to the indication; collect information relating to aggregate interactions between the application and a user through the user device, and generate a debug identification number based on the collected information;
convert the debug identification number into a binary pattern, wherein the binary pattern maps to a color scheme;
generate, based in part on the binary pattern and color scheme, a barcode used to represent the collected information; and
embed the barcode on a user interface of the application.
