Install

Sentry captures data by using an SDK within your application’s runtime.

Edit your mix.exs file to add it as a dependency and add the :sentry package to your application:

mix.exs
Copied
defp deps do
  [
    # ...
    {:sentry, "~> 10.0.2"},
    {:jason, "~> 1.1"},

    # If you want to use Sentry's default HTTP client:
    {:hackney, "~> 1.8"}
  ]
end

Configure

Configuration should happen as early as possible in your application's lifecycle.

Sentry has a range of configuration options, but most applications will have a configuration that looks like the following:

config/config.exs
Copied
config :sentry,
  dsn: "https://examplePublicKey@o0.ingest.sentry.io/0",
  environment_name: Mix.env(),
  included_environments: [:prod],
  enable_source_code_context: true,
  root_source_code_paths: [File.cwd!()]

Verify

This snippet includes an intentional error, so you can test that everything is working as soon as you set it up.

Copied
try do
  raise "This is a test!"
rescue
  exception ->
    Sentry.capture_exception(exception, stacktrace: __STACKTRACE__)
end

To view and resolve the recorded error, log into sentry.io and open your

. Clicking on the error's title will open a page where you can see detailed information and mark it as resolved.
