Default Integrations

System integrations are integrations enabled by default that integrate into the standard library or the interpreter itself. Sentry documents them so you can see what they do and that they can be disabled if they cause issues. To disable system integrations, set default_integrations=False when calling init().


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.atexit.AtexitIntegration

This integrates with the interpreter’s atexit system to automatically flush events from the background queue on interpreter shutdown. Typically, one does not need to disable this. Even if the functionality is not wanted, you can also disable it by setting the shutdown_timeout to 0 in the options to init().


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.excepthook.ExceptHookIntegration

This integration registers with the interpreter’s except hook system. Through this, any exception that is unhandled will be reported to Sentry automatically. Exceptions raised interactive interpreter sessions will not be reported.


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.dedupe.DedupeIntegration

This integration deduplicates certain events. The Sentry Python SDK enables it by default, and it should not be disabled except in rare circumstances. Disabling this integration, for instance, will cause duplicate error logging in the Flask framework.


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.stdlib.StdlibIntegration

The stdlib integration instruments certain modules in the standard library to emit breadcrumbs. The Sentry Python SDK enables this by default, and it rarely makes sense to disable.

In detail it provides:

  • Breadcrumbs for HTTP requests. The breadcrumbs are done using httplib, which also includes traffic going through requests.


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.modules.ModulesIntegration

Sends a list of installed Python packages along with each event.


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.argv.ArgvIntegration

(New in version 0.5.0 )

Adds sys.argv as extra attribute to each event.


Import name: sentry_sdk.integrations.logging.LoggingIntegration
