What is Sentry?

Sentry is a bug tracking tool that helps you find issues and errors on your website. This way, it’s easier and faster to ship high-quality software. Our integration will help you improve the user experience on the website. Integrating Sentry with LiveSession is a real time-saver, as you can access all information in one place.

How does it work?

As you connect both tools, each new issue in Sentry will get a tag called sessionURL. It will redirect you to the right recording in LiveSession so you can immediately see what caused the error.

Every time a new session will start, our code will send an event to Segment with a link to session replay.

Important: Remember that LiveSession only starts recording if it detects activity of user (find out more informations about recording conditions). Because of this, Sentry will wait 3 seconds after initializing. If the user doesn’t do anything for more than 3 seconds, the sessionURL tag will be empty.

How can I install this integration?

To install integration, add the code below before your </body> closing tag:

<script type="text/javascript"> Sentry.init({ dsn: "YOUR_SENTRY_URL", beforeSend: function beforeSend(event) { var createdSessionURL = ""; __ls("getSessionURL", function (url, isNewSession) { createdSessionURL = url; }); var wait = function wait(ms) { return new Promise(function (r, j) { return setTimeout(r, ms); }); }; return wait(3000).then(() => { event.extra["sessionURL"] = createdSessionURL; return event; }); } }); Sentry.configureScope(function (scope) { scope.setExtra("sessionURL", ""); }); </script>

To make this integration works you need to have Sentry and LiveSession installed on your website. If you haven’t installed our tracking code yet check this article.
