Sentry’s error tracking helps you log issues in web and mobile apps. With Sentry you can:
- View code in stack traces.
- See the error’s URL, parameters, and session information.
- Filter noisy traces with the app, framework, and raw error views.
- Get each error’s history of events and user interactions.
Sentry + SessionStack = Reproduce Issues Faster
Sentry and SessionStack partnered to offer full-blown context around how an error occurred. The two solutions now integrate to help you speed up debugging and focus on what you like doing: coding. If you are a Sentry user now you can complement your error reports with SessionStack’s visual recreation of user actions for every single issue in your web app. All you need to do to get going with it is follow the four simple steps below to integrate your Sentry project with SessionStack.
This is where the SessionStack user session recording can be found in your Sentry account.
How to Get Started
Are you a Sentry user? Here’s how to take advantage of this integration:
Step 1: Go register a free SessionStack account and add your web app.
Step 3: Create a SessionStack API token which will be used in the next step to setup the integration from within your Sentry account.
Step 4: Find the SessionStack plugin in your Sentry project settings and click on Configure plugin. Enter your SessionStack account email, the API Token you just created, and the ID of the website.
That’s it! Now you’ll find the SessionStack play session button in your Sentry error reports.
The video will start playing 5 seconds before the event has occurred so you can see the user actions that lead to the error. This is the basic integration.
