Edit fingerprint rule suggestions before saving

Since we introduced fingerprint rule suggestions a couple of weeks ago, several users have asked to be able to edit the rules before creating them. We've just launched this improvement, complete with JSON syntax highlighting. Screen Shot 2019-01-31 at 3.02.27 PM.png

Check out our custom fingerprint rule docs for a complete guide to defining your own rules.

Turn on/off email notifications per project

If your organization has a lot of projects, you may be receiving email notifications for projects that are maintained by other teams. It's now possible to turn on/off email notifications per project via your personal email settings. Screen Shot 2019-01-17 at 9.12.11 AM.png

To update your settings, go to User Settings → Email Settings.

Fingerprint Rule Suggestions

When you merge multiple items, Rollbar will now try to suggest a custom fingerprint rule to combine similar exceptions in the future. Screen Shot 2019-01-09 at 5.10.40 PM.png

The first release of this feature detects items with the same exception class and similar exception messages and automatically generates the JSON fingerprinting rule for detecting future occurrences.

Feedback? Questions? Suggestions?

This is the first of many upcoming improvements that will increase the relevance of your exception data in Rollbar. We're eager to hear from you to learn how well it's working!

Just send us a message via the in-app chat and someone will respond as quickly as possible.

Ruby 2.6.0 bug may cause Rollbar API errors

Ruby 2.6.0 introduced a new bug bug (#15472 - Invalid JSON data being sent from Net::HTTP in some cases with Ruby 2.6.0) that may result in the Rollbar API returning an error when an exception is reported. (See rollbar-gem issue #797).

Until the Ruby maintainers have released the fix for this bug, we advise Rollbar users to not upgrade their applications to Ruby 2.6.0.

Search by exception class

The search in Items view now supports an exception operator to search by exception class. Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 9.34.09 AM.png To view all search operators check out our search docs.

Create new projects without email notifications

When creating a new project you now have the option to choose whether or not email notification rules will be added. Screen Shot 2018-12-19 at 4.50.54 PM.png.

This is handy if you prefer to use a different notification channel (e.g. Slack).

Easier onboarding of new team members

We've made it easier for your teammates to join your account when you've enabled signup via whitelisted email domains.

Screen Shot 2018-11-27 at 10.38.51.png

To enable signup via a whitelisted email domain, go to Account Settings → General.

Your teammates will have the option to join your account after they've verified their email address.

Filter notification rules before creation

Previously, new notification rules were created without any filters applied, often leading to noisy notifications (e.g. emails for every occurrence).

You can now edit a notification rule before it's created: Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 11.21.34 AM.png

Enhanced Traceback

We're excited to introduce a new traceback view that includes additional lines of context around each frame in the traceback. Screen Shot 2018-10-19 at 9.34.32 AM.png

To enable the additional context in your tracebacks, you need to integrate Rollbar with your Git repos.

Deploy Tracking Enhancements

We've just released several improvements to our deploy tracking features:

  • Deploys can now have a status: succeeded, failed, timed_out, or started. See our Deploy API docs for more details.
  • Accounts on Advanced or Enterprise plans can now view deploys for all their projects in a single page.
  • The layout of the Deploys pages have been updated to be more compact and show deploy status.
