Sentry Extension Dogfood Plan

Sentry helps devs track, organize and break down errors more efficiently, facilitating their debug process. With the Sentry Extension we want to make it more convenient for developers to access Sentry's error tracking tools directly from their code. When set up correctly, the extension renders a link next to the error handling code that leads the developer directly to the Sentry detailed issue page.
The Sentry extension is currently compatible with JS, Typescript, Go, Python, Java and will render links next to common error handling code such as throw new Error(QUERY), raise TypeError(QUERY), fmt.Errorf(QUERY) etc. and will also match any code set up in configurations.
The developer has the ability to limit the rendering of Sentry links to specific repos (repoMatches), file formats (fileMatches), and error handling code (lineMatches).

In order for the Sentry extension to work flawlessly, it is crucial to check that the setup guidelines are clear and easy to follow. To ensure this, we will be dogfooding/release testing the Sentry extension until Wednesday May 15th, 2019, and collecting feedback on the experience as well as identifying and fixing any unforeseen bugs.

Please participate by doing the following:

  1. Go to and follow the ReadMe to activate and setup the Sentry extension.

  2. Setup the configurations regarding file format, code matching, repo matching etc. and verify that the links are generated to the correctly matched Sentry project ID.
    Sourcegraph currently uses Sentry to log errors from the browser extension and the web app. Files like these report to Sentry:

If you have personal projects using Sentry, feel free to text the extension there too.
