Sidekiq::Failures Build Status

Keeps track of Sidekiq failed jobs and adds a tab to the Web UI to let you browse them. Makes use of Sidekiq's custom tabs and middleware chain.

It mimics the way Resque keeps track of failures.

TIP: Note that each failed job/retry will create a new failed job that will only be removed by you manually. This might result in a pretty big failures list.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sidekiq-failures'


Depends on Sidekiq >= 2.2.1


Simply having the gem in your Gemfile should be enough.

Your failed jobs will be visible via a Failures tab in the Web UI.

TODO and Limitations

  • Skip failures of specific workers (or the opposite).
  • Trigger retry of specific failed jobs via Web UI.
  • Deal with retries. Maybe just track a failure when there's no attempt left.
