Sentry added support for react-native builds that use the hermes engine, which required changes to the sentry SDK, sentry-cli as well as Sentry itself.

Sentry customers using the SaaS product ( will need to update the SDK, and sentry-cli. The minimum required version for the SDK is @sentry/react-native SDK version 1.3.3, and @sentry/cli version 1.51.1.

For Sentry open source, self-hosted users, the minimum version required is f07352b.

Once you have the minimum version of the SDK, Sentry provides the standard integration as described in the React Native Sentry documentation.

Source Maps

If you do not need custom sourcemaps, the sentry.gradle build step fully supports Hermes source maps.

Custom Source Maps

If you are manually bundling and building React Native apps for Android, follow this three-step process. For Hermes on iOS, follow the normal source maps guide.

Compile for Android

  1. Bundle/minify with metro (react-native) to get the packager source map (
npx react-native bundle --platform android --dev false --entry-file index.js --bundle-output --sourcemap-output
  1. Compile to bytecode using hermes to get the compiler source map (

node_modules/hermes-engine/{OS-BIN}/hermesc -O -emit-binary -output-source-map
  1. Merge the two source maps using compose-source-maps to get the final source map (.map):
node node_modules/react-native/scripts/compose-source-maps.js -o

Upload the Bundle and Source Maps

Upload your source maps following Step 3 on the normal source maps guide.
