GitHub

You can now use the data from your GitHub commits to help you find and fix bugs faster.

Configure GitHub

  1. In Sentry, navigate to Organization Settings > Integrations.
  2. If you have the legacy GitHub integration installed, you’ll see a button next to Github that says Upgrade. If you do not have the legacy GitHub integration installed, you’ll see a button that says Install.

  3. In the resulting modal, click Add Installation.

  4. A GitHub install window should pop up. Click Install.
  5. Select which repositories Sentry should have access to (or select all repositories).
  6. You should then be redirected back to the Sentry Integrations page.
  7. On your new GitHub instance in Sentry, click Configure.
  8. Add any repositories from which you want to collect commit data. Note: Make sure you have given Sentry access to these repositories in GitHub in the previous steps.

Github should now be enabled for all projects under your Sentry organization.

Commit Tracking

Commit tracking allows you to hone in on problematic commits. Learn more about commit tracking.

Suspect Commits and Suggested Assignees

Once you set up commit tracking, you’ll be able to see the most recent changes to files found in the issue’s stacktrace with suspect commits.

For issues where the files in the stacktrace match files included in commits sent to Sentry, you’ll see the suspect commit, with a link to the commit itself.

You’ll also see that the author of the suspect commit will be listed as a suggested assignee for this issue. To assign the issue to the suggested assignee, click on their icon.

Issue Management

Issue tracking allows you to create GitHub issues from within Sentry, and link Sentry issues to existing Github Issues.

Once you’ve navigated to a specific issue, you’ll find the Linked Issues section on the right hand panel. Here, you’ll be able to create or link GitHub issues.

Resolving in Commit/Pull Request

Once you are sending commit data, you can start resolving issues by including fixes <SENTRY-SHORT-ID> in your commit messages. For example, a commit message might look like:

Prevent empty queries on users

Fixes MYAPP-317

You can also resolve issues with pull requests by including fixes <SENTRY-SHORT-ID> in the title or description.

When Sentry sees this, we’ll automatically annotate the matching issue with a reference to the commit or pull request, and, later, when that commit or pull request is part of a release, we’ll mark the issue as resolved.
