AWS Lambda

(New in version 5.26.0)

Create a deployment package on your local machine and install the required dependencies in the deployment package. For more information, see Building an AWS Lambda deployment package for Node.js.

Add @sentry/serverless as a dependency:

npm install --save @sentry/serverless

We also support installing Sentry as a Container Image and installing Sentry in Lambda Layer.

You can use the AWS Lambda integration for the Node like this:

const Sentry = require("@sentry/serverless");

  dsn: "",

  // We recommend adjusting this value in production, or using tracesSampler
  // for finer control
  tracesSampleRate: 1.0,

exports.handler = Sentry.AWSLambda.wrapHandler(async (event, context) => {
  // Your handler code

Enable Timeout Warning

Sentry reports timeout warning when the function is within 500ms of its execution time. You can turn off timeout warnings by setting captureTimeoutWarning to false in the handler options. To change timeout warning limit, assign a numeric value (in ms) to timeoutWarningLimit

exports.handler = Sentry.AWSLambda.wrapHandler(yourHandler, {
  captureTimeoutWarning: false,


With the AWS Lambda integration enabled, the Node SDK will:

  • Automatically report all events from your Lambda Functions.
  • Allows you to modify the transaction sample rate using tracesSampleRate.
  • Issue reports automatically include:
    • A link to the cloudwatch logs
    • Function details
    • sys.argv for the function
    • AWS Request ID
    • Function execution time
    • Function version
  • Sentry holds the thread for up to 2 seconds to report errors. You can change flush time limit by defining a flushTimeout value in the handler options
