Sentry (Crash Reporting)

The Sentry observer integrates sentry-sdk with your application to record tracebacks for crashes to Sentry.

Changed in version 2.0: The underlying library for communicating with sentry was changed from Raven to sentry-sdk.


Make sure your service calls configure_observers() during application startup and then add the following to your configuration file to enable and configure the Sentry observer.



# required to enable the observer
# the DSN provided by Sentry for your project
sentry.dsn = https://decaf:face@sentry.local/123

# optional: the environment this application is running in
sentry.environment = staging

# optional: percent chance that a given error will be reported
# (defaults to 100%)
sentry.sample_rate = 37%

# optional: comma-delimited list of fully qualified names of exception
# classes to not report.
sentry.ignore_errors = my_service.UninterestingException



Any unexpected exceptions that cause the request to crash (including outside request context) will be reported to Sentry. The Trace ID of the current request will be included in the context reported to Sentry.

Direct Use

When enabled, the error reporting observer also adds a sentry_sdk.Hub object as an attribute named sentry to the RequestContext:

def my_handler(request):
    except Exception:
