Sentry Grails Plugin

Build Status


The Sentry Plugin allows you to integrate Sentry in your Grails application for exception error tracking and aggregation.

It provides the following Grails artefacts:

  • SentryService - A Raven Java server side client to explicitly capture messages or exceptions.
  • SentryTagLib - A collection of tags to use Raven JS client for JS exception tracking in your GSPs.


Declare the plugin dependency in the BuildConfig.groovvy file, as shown here:

grails.project.dependency.resolution = {
		inherits("global") { }
		log "info"
		repositories {
				//your repositories
		dependencies {
				//your dependencies
		plugins {
				//here go your plugin dependencies
				runtime ':sentry:0.1'


Create a Sentry account, in order to get your own dsn.

Add your Sentry site dsn to your grails-app/conf/Config.groovy:

grails.plugin.sentry.dsn = {DSN}
grails.plugin.sentry.enabled = true // Default to true for Production

By default the Sentry will only be enabled for Production environments. If you need it to be enabled for other environments, make sure that it is explicitly enabled in your configs.

Config parameters specific to Raven Java:

// Async, default is false
grails.plugin.sentry.async = true
// Level threshold, default is Level.WARN
grails.plugin.sentry.threshold = Level.ALL

Config parameters specific to Raven JS:

// An array of error messages that should not get passed to Sentry. You'll probably want to set this to ["Script error."]
grails.plugin.sentry.ignoreErrors = ["Script error."]
// An array of regular expressions matching urls which will not get passed to Sentry. For example, you could set it to [/ajax\.googleapis\.com\/ajax\/libs\/jquery/i] to ignore errors from the Google Hosted jQuery library.
grails.plugin.sentry.ignoreUrls = [/ajax\.googleapis\.com\/ajax\/libs\/jquery/i]
// The logger name you wish to send with the message. Defaults to 'javascript'.
grails.plugin.sentry.logger = 'yoursite.errors.javascript'

Option config parameters for JS.

grails.plugin.sentry.enabled = true

To test if plugin is correctly configured, you can generate the following exception: TODO



Sentry SSL Certificate Issue

TODO SSL certificate provider might not be valid by default. When Sentry client will try to capture an exception, you will get the infamous SunCertPathBuilderException: Unable To Find Valid Certification Path To Requested Target exception.

To add a Sentry SSL certificate on OSX:

sudo keytool -importcert -alias getsentry -file getsentry.cer -keystore /Library/Java/Home/lib/security/cacerts

By default, the certificate password will either be changeme or changeit.
