September 2021 Terraform Notification Support

 

New

 

 

We’re happy to announce further enhancements to the Rollbar Terraform provider. With today's 1.3 release, we now support a handful of Notification rule types: email, Slack, & PagerDuty.

Rollbar enables Terraform to control resources on Rollbar.com in order to save you time and reduce the risk of human error. This enhancement will allow you to automate project alerting configuration tasks such as creating, editing, and deletion of notification rules.

Terraform is an an open-source infrastructure as code software tool used to create, manage, and update infrastructure resources. It is a declarative framework - which means that you can describe the end state that you want to achieve without stating the exact steps and ‘how’ to get there.

You can find Rollbar in the Terraform Registry which is now available in Open Beta.

August 2021 Rollbar Service Links Beta

Rollbar is pleased to announce the launch of Rollbar Service Links in beta. Rollbar is not the “last stop” for monitoring and debugging - often, you might also be interested in what your other monitoring and performance tools are telling you. Those tools were a few clicks and copy-paste away - now, with Service Links, they are just 1 click away. Big time saver, allowing access to all the info you need when you need it!

  • Rollbar Service Links are easy to create via forms, not JSON
  • Service Links will show up on your Item page & Item Occurrence page
  • You can add dynamic payload data to a service link by using the Raw JSON you send to Rollbar

You can create Service Links in Projects Settings → select the project of your choice → Integrations → Service Links.

Currently, our Service Links integration is in beta, and all user feedback is highly appreciated. Feel free to send us your comments here.

If you have questions or need help with Service Links, you can reach us at support@rollbar.com.

June 2021 Grouping Update

 

New

 

 

We are excited to announce our June 2021 Grouping Update that significantly improves grouping accuracy for Go and Ruby issues, allowing engineers to discover and respond to errors more quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 807 frequently occurring error types that cause 36% of crashes in Go and Ruby. We trained our model on millions of crashes to analyze frequently occurring error types and accurately distinguish different ones.

To get the update, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping, check "Enable auto-upgrade for future improvements", and click "Save settings." Auto-upgrade is enabled on projects created since June 2020.

Github Enterprise Server ⇄ Rollbar

 

New

 

 

Rollbar now supports Github Enterprise Server!

Reduce the time it takes them to resolve bugs and spend more time building by integrating Rollbar and Github Enterprise Server on your domain. View code context and git blame right in the error without having to switch over to Github. See the exact line of code where the error was encountered and get to the root cause faster.

Try it now by following the integration instructions in our docs.

May 2021 Grouping Update

 

New

 

 

We are happy to announce the May 2021 Grouping Update that significantly improves grouping accuracy for Java, Python, C#, Ruby and Javascript issues, thus allowing users to discover and respond to errors more quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 2100 frequently occurring error types that cause 43% of crashes in Java, Python, C#, Ruby and Javascript. We trained our model on millions of crashes to analyze frequently occurring error types and learned to distinguish different ones accurately.

Go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping, check "Enable auto-upgrade for future improvements", and click "Save settings." Auto-upgrade is enabled on projects created since June 2020.

To get the update without auto-upgrades, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping and click "Upgrade to latest".

April 2021 Telemetry support added to the Go SDK

 

New

 

 

Rollbar is happy to announce the addition of Telemetry support for the Go SDK.

The Go SDK now provides the mechanism to collect (independently from its logger components) additional runtime information "bread crumbs" in the form of Telemetry events and keeps them within the configurable fixed-depth Telemetry queue. It provides an API for capturing telemetry events within the queue so that whenever the Rollbar logger reports any data to Rollbar API the Telemetry events available in the Telemetry queue at the time of logging are automatically attached to the logger payload.

This Telemetry data is intended to provide extra information about the events preceding the logging event that could be useful when analyzing the logging event itself. Currently, Telemetry events are categorized by types. For example, network telemetry events, logger telemetry events, manual telemetry events, etc.

To gain access to telemetry for Go you must be using v1.4 or later. You can configure telemetry using the ‘SetTelemetry’ function as documented here. You can also view an example configuration here.

Grouping Auto-Upgrade for all accounts

 

New

 

 

Rollbar is pleased to enable Grouping Auto-Upgrade for all accounts. It is the final phase of our adoption campaign for this feature.

Grouping Auto-Upgrades automatically activate the biweekly released grouping updates immediately. With the protection provided by Seamless Grouping Upgrades, it does not change the grouping of existing items. Enabling grouping auto-upgrade is free, and it doesn’t have an effect on the number of incoming occurrences and their costs. We do not enable it for accounts that decided to keep it manually before (opted-out via e-mail or discussed it with their CSMs).

April 2021 Enhanced CLI Support For Source Maps

 

New

 

 

We are happy to announce that Rollbar has extended CLI capabilities to support Source Map Uploads.

Matching source maps to minified JS code is necessary to ensure that error reporting can be interpreted easily by people. Just as important is providing the tooling that fits your workflow.

With this enhancement, our goal is to save you time and effort by addressing common pain points in our Source Map support.

Newly added features in support of Source Maps provided by CLI include:

  • Concurrent Uploads - We’ll zip all the files provided within a directory.
  • Automatic Reprocessing - If your Source Maps fail to be processed after upload, our new service will retry automatically.
  • Removed Size Limit constraints found in other methods of uploading Source Maps.

Check out our CLI documentation today!

March 2021 Grouping Update

 

New

 

 

We are happy to announce the March 2021 Grouping Update that significantly improves grouping accuracy for C#, php, Java, Python, JavaScript and Ruby issues, thus allowing users to discover and respond to errors more quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 613 frequently occurring error types that cause most crashes in C#, php, Java, Python, JavaScript and Ruby. We trained our model on millions of crashes to analyze frequently occurring error types and learned to distinguish different ones accurately.

Go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping, check "Enable auto-upgrade for future improvements", and click "Save settings." Auto-upgrade is enabled on projects created since June 2020.

To get the update without auto-upgrades, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping and click "Upgrade to latest".
