raven: clojure sentry client library

Travis status

A Clojure library to send events to a sentry host.

An exoscale Raven

Usage

Clojars Project

The main exported function is capture! and has three arities:

  • (capture! dsn event): Send a capture over the network, see the description of DSN and ev below.
  • (capture! dsn event tags): Send a capture passing an extra map of tags.
  • (capture! context dsn event tags): Send a capture passing additional context, such as a specific HTTP client.

The capture! function returns the Sentry Event ID.

(println "Sentry event created" (capture! <dsn> (Exception.)))

Arguments

  • DSN: A Sentry DSN as defined http://sentry.readthedocs.org/en/2.9.0/client/index.html#parsing-the-dsn
  • Event: Either an exception or a map.
  • Tags: A map of extra information to be sent (as Sentry "tags").
  • Context: A map of additional information you can pass to Sentry. Note that omitting this parameter will make use of some thread-local storage for some of the functionality.

Passing your own aleph connection pool

In many cases, it makes sense to reuse an already existing aleph conneciton pool (created with http/connection-pool). Raven will reuse a connection pool if it is passed to the (capture!) function through the context parameter, as :pool.

(capture! {:pool (http/connection-pool {:connection-options {:raw-stream? true}})} "<dsn>" "My message")

More aleph options

You can also pass the following aleph configuration through the context:

(capture! {:pool nil
           :middleware nil
           :pool-timeout nil
           :response-executor nil
           :request-timeout nil
           :read-timeout nil
           :connection-timeout nil})

Extra interfaces

Tags

On top of being able to set tags at capture time, it is possible to add extra tags using the add-tag! function, declaring the following arity:

  • (add-tag! tag value) Adds a tag entry with the specified tag name and value to a thread-local storage.
  • (add-tag! context tag value) Adds a specified tag in a user-specified context. Context is expected to be map-like.

Tags specified this way will be overwritten by tag specified as part of the (capture!) call.

Breadcrumbs

Adding sentry "breadcrumbs" can be done using the add-breadcrumb! function, that has the following arities:

  • (add-breadcrumb! breadcrumb) Store a breadcrumb in thread-local storage.
  • (add-breadcrumb! context breadcrumb) Store a breadcrumb in a user-specified context. Context is expected to be map-like.

Well-formatted breadcrumb maps can be created with the make-breadcrumb! helper, with the following arities:

  • (make-breadcrumb! message category) A breadcrumb will be created with the "info" level.
  • (make-breadcrumb! message category level) This allows specifying a level. Levels can be one of: 'debug' 'info' 'warning' 'warn' 'error' 'exception' 'critical' 'fatal'
  • (make-breadcrumb! message category level timestamp) This allows setting a custom timestamp instead of letting the helper get one for you. Timestamp must be a floating point representation of seconds elapsed since the epoch (not milliseconds).

More information can be found on Sentry's documentation website

User

Sentry supports adding information about the user when capturing events. This library makes it possible using the add-user! function, with the following arities:

  • (add-user! user) Store a user in thread-local storage.
  • (add-user! context user) Store a user in a user-specified context. Context is expected to be map-like.

Well-formatted user maps can be created with the make-user helper function, with the following arities:

  • (make-user id) A simple user map with the only required field (the user's id) is created.
  • (make-user id email ip-address username) A map with all "special" fields recognised by sentry is created. Additional fields can be added to the created user map if desired, and will simply show up in the interface as extra fields.

More information can be found on Sentry's documentation website

HTTP Requests

As for Users, Sentry supports adding information about the HTTP request that resulted in the captured exception. To fill in that information this library provides add-ring-request! and add-full-ring-request! functions, with the following arities:

  • (add-ring-request! ring-request) Extract the required information from the supplied ring-compatible request map, and store the result in thread-local storage for future delivery with a call to (capture!)
  • (add-ring-request! context ring-request) Store the HTTP information extracted from the passed ring-compatible request in the user-specified map-like context (expected to be ultimately passed to (capture!)).

The add-full-ring-request! function provides the same arities, and includes the request body in the capture, while add-ring-request! does not.

Well formatted HTTP information maps can otherwise be created with the make-http-info helper function, with the following arities:

  • (make-http-info url method) A simple HTTP info map with only required fields (the request's URL and method) is created.
  • (make-http-info url method headers query_string cookies data env) Creates a map with all the "special" fields recognised by Sentry. Additional fields can be added to the created HTTP map if desired, and will simply show up in the interface as extra fields.

Those maps can be passed to the Sentry context using the add-http-info! function, with the following arities:

  • (add-http-info! info) Store the HTTP information in thread-local storage.
  • (add-http-info! context info) Store the HTTP information in the user-specified map-like context (expected to be ultimately passed to (capture!)).

Example:

(add-ring-request! ring-request)
(capture! <dsn> "First capture")
(add-http-info! (make-http-info "http://example.com" :get))
(capture! <dsn> "Second capture")

More information about the HTTP interface can be found on Sentry's documentation website.

Fingerprints

In cases where you do not send an exception, Sentry will try to group your message by looking at differences in interfaces. In some cases, this is not enough, and you will want to specify a particular grouping fingerprint, as explained in this part of the Sentry documentation.

To set a custom fingerprint for a particular event, this library provides the add-fingerprint! function with the following arities:

  • (add-fingerprint! fingerprint) Store the fingerprint in thread-local storage.
  • (add-fingerprint! context fingerprint) Store the fingerprint in the user-specified map-like context (expected to be passed to capture!).

The contents of the :fingerprint entry is expected to be a list of strings.

Full example

The following examples send Sentry a payload with all extra interfaces provided by this library, using the thread-local storage.

(def dsn "https://098f6bcd4621d373cade4e832627b4f6:ad0234829205b9033196ba818f7a872b@sentry.example.com/42")
(add-breadcrumb! (make-breadcrumb! "The user did something" "com.example.Foo"))
(add-breadcrumb! (make-breadcrumb! "The user did something wrong" "com.example.Foo" "error"))
(add-user! (make-user "user-id" "test@example.com" "127.0.0.1" "username"))
(add-ring-request! ring-request)
(add-tag! :my_custom_tag "some value")
(capture! dsn (Exception.) {:another_tag "another value"})

Alternatively you can compose and send a valid payload using something like the following:

(capture! dsn (-> {} (add-exception! e)
                     (add-user! (make-user "user-id")
                     (add-ring-request! ring-request)
                     (add-tag! :my_custom_tag "some value"))

Testing

Unit tests

As usual in the clojure world, a simple lein test should run unit tests.

Integration tests

To ensure the results are correctly handled by Sentry and that this library produces correct JSON payloads, a simple integration test can be run with

DSN=http://... lein test :integration

This will publish a test event in the project associated with the DSN with as much test data as possible.

Testing programs using this library

In order to facilitate testing of programs using this library, a special ":memory:" DSN is supported. When passed to this library in place of a real DSN, the payload map that would be sent to sentry in an HTTP request is instead stored in the http-requests-payload-stub atom.

In your tests, you can assert that a Sentry payload conforming to your expectations would have been sent to the sentry server with:

(do
    (code-that-invokes-capture-once)
    (is (= 1 (count @http-requests-payload-stub))))

Users are responsible for cleaning the atom up between test runs, for example using the clear-http-stub convenience function.
