Official Sentry Command Line Interface

Build Status GitHub release npm version license

This is a Sentry command line client for some generic tasks. Right now this is primarily used to upload debug symbols to Sentry if you are not using the fastlane tools.

  • Downloads can be found under Releases
  • Documentation can be found here


If you are on OS X or Linux, you can use the automated downloader which will fetch the latest release version for you and install it:

curl -sL | bash

We do however, encourage you to pin the specific version of the CLI, so your builds are always reproducible. To do that, you can use the exact same method, with an additional version specifier:

curl -sL | SENTRY_CLI_VERSION=2.0.4 bash

This will automatically download the correct version of sentry-cli for your operating system and install it. If necessary, it will prompt for your admin password for sudo. For a different installation location or for systems without sudo (like Windows), you can export INSTALL_DIR=/custom/installation/path before running this command.

To verify it’s installed correctly you can bring up the help:

sentry-cli --help


Additionally you can also install this binary via npm:

npm install @sentry/cli

When installing globally, make sure to have set correct permissions on the global node_modules directory. If this is not possible in your environment or still produces an EACCESS error, install as root:

sudo npm install -g @sentry/cli --unsafe-perm

By default, this package will download sentry-cli from the CDN managed by Fastly. To use a custom CDN, set the npm config property sentrycli_cdnurl. The downloader will append "/<version>/sentry-cli-<dist>".

npm install @sentry/cli --sentrycli_cdnurl=https://mymirror.local/path

Or add property into your .npmrc file (


Another option is to use the environment variable SENTRYCLI_CDNURL.

SENTRYCLI_CDNURL=https://mymirror.local/path npm install @sentry/cli

If you're installing the CLI with NPM from behind a proxy, the install script will use either NPM's configured HTTPS proxy server, or the value from your HTTPS_PROXY environment variable.


A homebrew recipe is provided in the getsentry/tools tap:

brew install getsentry/tools/sentry-cli


As of version 1.25.0, there is an official Docker image that comes with sentry-cli preinstalled. If you prefer a specific version, specify it as tag. The latest development version is published under the edge tag. In production, we recommend you to use the latest tag. To use it, run:

docker pull getsentry/sentry-cli
docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/work getsentry/sentry-cli --help


In case you want to compile this yourself, you need to install at minimum the following dependencies:

  • Rust stable and Cargo
  • Make, CMake and a C compiler

Use cargo to compile:

$ cargo build

Also, there is a Dockerfile that builds an Alpine-based Docker image with sentry-cli in the PATH. To build and use it, run:

docker build -t sentry-cli .
docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/work sentry-cli --help
