Record User Information

Learn about how you can record or customize the capture of user information.

Recording user information is available only in the Spring MVC integration.

Record user information from an HTTP request or by registering a Spring bean for custom user information capture.

To record the user's IP address and Principal#name as the username, set the personal information flag to true.


To record custom user information, you can register a bean that implements SentryUserProvider interface.

import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;
import io.sentry.protocol.User;
import io.sentry.spring.SentryUserProvider;

class CustomSentryUserProvider implements SentryUserProvider {
  public User provideUser() {
    User user = new User();
    // ... set user information
    return user
