Sentry's Python SDK enables automatic reporting of errors and exceptions as well as identifies performance issues in your application.
Sentry's Python SDK includes powerful hooks that let you get more out of Sentry, and helps you bind data like tags, users, or contexts. Our SDK supports Python 2.7, then 3.4 and above; specific versions for each framework are documented on the respective framework page. Migrating from older versions is documented here.
On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's SDK, so that it will automatically report errors and exceptions in your application.
Using a framework?
Get started using a guide listed in the right sidebar.
Don't already have an account and Sentry project established? Head over to sentry.io, then return to this page.
Sentry captures data by using an SDK within your application’s runtime.
Install our Python SDK using
pip install --upgrade sentry-sdk
Configuration should happen as early as possible in your application's lifecycle.
Once this is done, Sentry's Python SDK captures all unhandled exceptions and transactions.
import sentry_sdk sentry_sdk.init( dsn="https://examplePublicKey@o0.ingest.sentry.io/0", # Set traces_sample_rate to 1.0 to capture 100% # of transactions for performance monitoring. # We recommend adjusting this value in production. traces_sample_rate=1.0, )
This snippet includes an intentional error, so you can test that everything is working as soon as you set it up:
division_by_zero = 1 / 0
Learn more about manually capturing an error or message in our Usage documentation.
To view and resolve the recorded error, log into sentry.io and open your project. Clicking on the error's title will open a page where you can see detailed information and mark it as resolved.
Our documentation is open source and available on GitHub. Your contributions are welcome, whether fixing a typo (drat!) to suggesting an update ("yeah, this would be better").
