Sentry SDK Documentation


To install simply clone or download the sentry.cfc file and place it anywhere in your project.

Instantiating as a Singleton

sentry-cfml can be instantiated each time you call it or it can also live as a Singleton in your Application scope.

function onApplicationStart(){

    application.sentry = new
        release     : "release-number-of-your-application",
        environment : "production|staging|etc",
        publicKey   : "your-public-key",
        privateKey  : "your-private-key",
        projectID   : "your-project-id"

    return true;

Using in your Application

Add to the onError() function to use for application wide errors.

function onError(
       exception : arguments.exception


It is recommended that you review the Sentry SDK Docs to understand the attributes and Interfaces that are supported.


The following are examples on how to send messages and errors to Sentry. The examples are based on the singleton instance.

Passing Messages

An information Message using a thread to post to Sentry including data that is passed into the User Interface

        message     : "This is just info",
        level       : "info",
        useThread   : true,
        userInfo    : {
            id          : 100,
            email       : "",
            type        : "administrator",
            username    : "john",
            ip_address  : cgi.remote_addr

Other level types allowed by Sentry

        message :"This is a fatal message",
        level   :"fatal"

        message :"This is an error message",
        level   :"error"

        message :"This is a warning message",
        level   :"warning"

        message :"This is a debug message",
        level   :"debug"

Capturing Errors

To capture an error you simply use the captureExeption function. Capturing an exception allows for more options than just posting a message. Review the argument hints on the CFC for more information.

        exception                   : e,
        level                       : "error",
        oneLineStackTrace           : true,
        showJavaStackTrace          : true,
        removeTabsOnJavaStackTrace  : false,
        additionalData              : {
            session : session
        useSignature                : false,
        cgiVars                     : cgi,
        useThread                   : true,
        userInfo                    : {}
You can’t perform that action at this time.
