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.

Note that each failed retry will create a new failed job. This might result in a pretty big failures list. Think twice before using this project. In most cases automatic retries allied to exception notifications will be enough.


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.
