Hints

The Python SDK provides some common hints for breadcrumbs and events. These hints are passed as the hint parameter to before_send and before_breadcrumb (as well as event processors) as a dictionary. More than one hint can be supplied, but this is rare.

exc_info
If you set this hint, then it's an exc info tuple in the form (exc_type, exc_value, tb). This can be used to extract additional information from the original error object.

log_record
This hint is passed to breadcrumbs and contains the log record that created it. It can be used to extract additional information from the original logging log record that is not extracted by default. Likewise, it can be useful to discard uninteresting breadcrumbs.

httplib_request
An httplib request object for breadcrumbs created from HTTP requests.
