Easy to configure Backend alerts for your production environment

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/07/20
Review Source: Capterra

Overall experience was really good with production alerts being fired anytime there was an exception or an outage on the backend server.

Pros

Sentry can be easily integrated with your platform for generating email alerts for any issues on production backend server. Be it an exception on the server or the outage, sentry will send an alert to your email and once you login to the dashboard, you can easily see the stack trace for the error which occurred on the server along with the frequency of occurring error. Sentry integration is available for different programming languages.

Cons

Setting it up with your backend server for the first time can take some time. Also we faced some issues with integrating the HTTPS sentry link with Node.js. Other than that, its a great tool in helping you keeping your production environment available 24/7.

We set sentry up for all the software we develop. It has helped us greatly to always know when an application crashes so that we begin working on fixes. We loved sentry because it's easy to setup and use. We set it up once and run for the software lifespan. It shows a lot of information in a non-overwhelming way

Pros

The interface is so easy to use, it's almost natural for me.
It sends notifications to my e-mail and often when I click view on sentry I don't need to re-login it just takes me where I need to go
Version Control integration which make it easier to resolve issues when making a commit

Cons

When an issues occurs multiple times I want to view breadcrumbs for multiple cases at once but this option isn't there and if an issue occurs thousands of times this is a challenge
I can seem to find resolved issues to review them for whatever reason, at least if resolved issues were accessible for some time this would be great, or if this is already there making it easy would be great

Instant issue notifications to the entire team with visual reports, issue timelines, assignees

Used Weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros

Anyone on the team can subscribe to get instantly notified about the issues; multiple projects supported in the same dashboard (in my team we use separate projects for different types of environments). Automatic weekly and monthly reports are simple but informative. Gitlab integration is available. I also really like visibility into team members who have already seen the issue. Issue search filter is very detailed as well. Open source and cloud versions are available so any team's needs can be met.

Cons

Since all screens are minimalistic, they all look the same at a first glance, perhaps some color or header accents would be nice, also some sort of labelling for more customized filtering could come in handy. As a PM I think I am more picky about things like that than developers on my team though. Overall this is a good product.

A must-have in our tool kit

Used Daily for 2+ years

Pros

Sentry has helped us track down countless, countless bugs in our platform before they could have been reported by our users. Thanks to their platform we are instantly made aware when someone has an issue on our API, dashboard, or one of our worker bots fails for an unforeseen reason.

Cons

Sometimes a bug occurs that impacts a lot of users / traffic. Especially if you use an API. This can in some cases prevent other errors in other projects from showing up. Simple fix, just don't get any errors ;)

Straightforward to set up and use, crystal clear documentation

Pros

We use Sentry for our website and app alert handling. They have excellent docs to get set up and integrated across a variety of languages, web, and app frameworks. Getting alerts piped into Slack and Pagerduty was super simple.

Cons

Small nit, but wish they made it easier to get full stacktraces from mixed environments, like React Native! Would be nice to get both native and JS traces in both iOS and Android.

Benefits

- Complete Stack Traces: See your full code directly in an exception’s stack trace. Sentry automatically applies source maps to convert minified or transpiled JavaScript. For iOS crashes, Sentry symbolicates Apple’s incomplete exception data. Sentry is also the only error tracker that displays stack locals for Python and PHP errors in production.

- Understand the Context: Sentry provides key details of each exception so you can set priorities based on business-critical issues. Add custom tags relevant to your app and environment to recreate specific error conditions and filter down to a single crash and user without auditing logs.

- Breadcrumb Event Trail: Knowing the timeline of events that led to an alert is the best way to address root cause and assess priority. Sentry exposes server-side history—debug logs, network requests, SQL queries—and client-side details—user interactions, HTTP requests, console messages—that reveal the full state of your app.

- Track Releases: Associate errors with a specific app version so you know exactly when problems were introduced and resolve with next release. Sentry suppresses duplicates, and you'll receive notifications if things regress. Add commit data to fully integrate with your deploy process and automatically assign issues to their most likely author.
