Sentry automatically creates environments when it receives an event with the environment tag. Environments are case-sensitive. The environment name can't contain newlines, spaces or forward slashes, can't be the string "None", or exceed 64 characters. You can't delete environments, but you can hide them.

The Electron SDK automatically sets the environment to development or production depending on whether the application is packaged.

You can override this default for other environments:

import * as Sentry from "@sentry/electron";

  environment: "test",

Environments help you better filter issues, releases, and user feedback in the Issue Details page of sentry.io, which you learn more about in our documentation that covers using environments.
