Usage

Sentry's SDK hooks into your runtime environment and automatically reports errors, exceptions, and rejections.

The most common form of capturing is to capture errors. What can be captured as an error varies by platform. In general, if you have something that looks like an exception, it can be captured. For some SDKs, you can also omit the argument to capture_exception and Sentry will attempt to capture the current exception. It is also useful for manual reporting of errors or messages to Sentry.

While capturing an event, you can also record the breadcrumbs that lead up to that event. Breadcrumbs are different from events: they will not create an event in Sentry, but will be buffered until the next event is sent. Learn more about breadcrumbs in our Breadcrumbs documentation.

Capturing Errors

In Rust, you can capture any std::error::Error type.

Copied
let result = match function_returns_error() {
    Ok(result) => result,
    Err(err) => {
        sentry::capture_error(&err);
        return Err(err);
    }
};

Integrations may provide more specialized capturing methods.

Copied
use sentry::integrations::anyhow::capture_anyhow;

let result = match function_returns_anyhow() {
    Ok(result) => result,
    Err(err) => {
        capture_anyhow(&err);
        return Err(err);
    }
};

Capturing Messages

Another common operation is to capture a bare message. A message is textual information that should be sent to Sentry. Typically messages are not emitted, but they can be useful for some teams.

Copied
sentry::capture_message("Something went wrong", sentry::Level::Info);
