Getting Started is Simple

Add the Sentry dependency:

Install-Package Sentry.AspNet -Version 3.8.3

You configure the SDK in the Global.asax.cs:

using System;
using System.Web;
using Sentry;
using Sentry.AspNet;
using Sentry.EntityFramework; // if you also installed Sentry.EntityFramework
using Sentry.Extensibility;

public class MvcApplication : HttpApplication
    private IDisposable _sentry;

    protected void Application_Start()
        // Initialize Sentry to capture AppDomain unhandled exceptions and more.
        _sentry = SentrySdk.Init(o =>
            o.Dsn = "https://<key><project>";
            // When configuring for the first time, to see what the SDK is doing:
            o.Debug = true;
            // Set TracesSampleRate to 1.0 to capture 100%
            // of transactions for performance monitoring.
            // We recommend adjusting this value in production
            o.TracesSampleRate = 1.0;
            // if you also installed the Sentry.EntityFramework package

    protected void Application_Error()
        var exception = Server.GetLastError();

    protected void Application_BeginRequest()

    protected void Application_EndRequest()

    protected void Application_End()
        // Flushes out events before shutting down.

That’s it. Be sure to check out our documentation to ensure you have the latest instructions.

Traditional logging provides you with a trail of events. Some of those events are errors, but many times they’re simply informational. Sentry is fundamentally different because we focus on exceptions, or in other words, we capture application crashes. We discuss in more detail here and on our blog.

When Spring Boot is configured to generate Git information every event triggered by Sentry will have a release field set to the current Git commit ID that will enable Monitor Release Health Sentry feature. More details here.

You can get started for free. Pricing depends on the number of monthly events, transactions, and attachments that you send Sentry. For more details, visit our pricing page.
