Migrating Version 6.x to 7.0

Learn about migrating from version 6.x to 7.0.0

  • The sentry-android-okhttp classes were deprecated in favor of sentry-okhttp, which is a pure Java module and can be used in non-Android projects. Check the OkHttp Integration documentation to see how to use it.
    • The SentryOkHttpUtils class was removed from the public API. If you were using it, consider filing a feature request.
  • If you're using sentry-kotlin-extensions, it now requires kotlinx-coroutines-core version 1.6.1 or higher.
  • Changed the return type of SentryApolloInterceptor.BeforeSpanCallback from ISpan to ISpan?.
  • Scope now implements the IScope interface, therefore some methods like ScopeCallback.run accept IScope now.
  • Some Sentry.startTransaction overloads do not exist anymore, and instead, you can set old options by passing a TransactionOptions object in.

For example:

// old
val transaction = Sentry.startTransaction("name", "op", bindToScope = true)
// new
val transaction = Sentry.startTransaction("name", "op", TransactionOptions().apply { isBindToScope = true })

  • The SDK now captures failed HTTP and GraphQL (Apollo) requests by default.
    • This can increase your event consumption and may affect your quota, because the SDK will report failed network requests as Sentry events if you're using the sentry-okhttp or sentry-apollo-3 integrations by default. You can customize what errors you want/don't want to have reported for OkHttp and Apollo3 respectively.
  • The SDK now sets ip_address to {{auto}} by default, even if sendDefaultPII is disabled.
    • We recommend you instead use the "Prevent Storing of IP Addresses" option in the "Security & Privacy" project settings on sentry.io.
  • The maxSpans setting (defaults to 1000) is now enforced for nested child spans. This means a single transaction can have maxSpans number of children (nested or not) at most.

  • Starting with version 7.0.0 of the SDK, Sentry's version >= v22.12.0 is required to properly ingest transactions with unfinished spans. This only applies to self-hosted Sentry. If you are using sentry.io, no action is needed.
