Learn how to import and use the huey integration.

The huey integration adds support for the huey task queue library.

To get started, install sentry-sdk from PyPI.

pip install --upgrade sentry-sdk

The huey integration is enabled automatically if you have the huey package installed.

Configuration should happen as early as possible in your application's lifecycle.

import sentry_sdk

    # Set traces_sample_rate to 1.0 to capture 100%
    # of transactions for tracing.
    # Set profiles_sample_rate to 1.0 to profile 100%
    # of sampled transactions.
    # We recommend adjusting this value in production.

from huey import SqliteHuey

sentry_sdk.init(...)  # same as above

huey = SqliteHuey(filename='demo.db')

def add(a, b):
    return a + b

with sentry_sdk.start_transaction(name="testing_huey"):
    result = add(1, 2)

Running this will create a new transaction called testing_huey in the Performance section of It may take a couple of moments for the transaction to show up.

  • huey: 2.0+
  • Python: 3.6+

The versions above apply for Sentry Python SDK version 2.0+, which drops support for some legacy Python and framework versions. If you're looking to use Sentry with older Python or framework versions, consider using an SDK version from the 1.x major line of releases.
