November 2020 Java, C# & Python Grouping Update

We are happy to announce the November 2020 Java, C# & Python Grouping Update that significantly improves grouping accuracy for Java, C# & Python issues, thus allowing users to discover and respond to errors more quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 1,016 frequently occurring error types that cause most crashes in these languages. 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".

November 2020 Javascript Grouping Update

We are happy to announce the November 2020 Javascript Grouping Update that significantly improves the grouping accuracy of Javascript issues, thus allowing users to observe and respond to errors quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 335 frequently occurring error types that cause 38% of Javascript crashes. We trained our model on 5 million Javascript 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".

Observability: Lightstep integration

Lightstep and Rollbar together make observability even better!

Check out the new integration to move seamlessly between errors with code context in Rollbar and root cause analysis in Lightstep. The integration creates a snapshot when Rollbar captures an error to give a systems-wide view within Lighstep.

October 2020 Ruby Grouping Update

We are happy to announce the October 2020 Ruby Grouping Update that significantly improves the grouping accuracy of Ruby issues, thus allowing users to observe and respond to errors quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 680 frequently occurring error types that cause 54% of Ruby crashes. We trained our model on 5 million Ruby crashes to analyze frequently occurring error types and learned to distinguish different ones accurately.

To enable it, 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.

Improvements to Account Projects list

We’re excited to announce our improved Account > Projects page, where you can quickly find the project you’re looking for, filter which projects are missing important integrations, or learn which integrations other teams love to use. Try it today!

September 2020 Ruby grouping update

We are happy to announce the September 2020 Ruby Grouping Update that significantly improves the grouping accuracy of the majority of Ruby crashes, thus allowing users to observe and respond to errors quickly. Pattern recognition in Ruby messages allows the algorithm to enrich the error payload with community information and group it more accurately

How to get it:

  1. Existing projects with auto-upgrade and new projects get the patterns automatically
  2. To get it and enable auto-upgrades, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping, check "Enable auto-upgrade for future improvements", and click "Save settings."
  3. To get it without auto-upgrades go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping and click "Upgrade to latest".

September 2020 Ruby, Python and PHP Grouping Update

We are happy to announce the September 2020 Ruby, Python and PHP Grouping Update that significantly improves the grouping accuracy of Ruby, Python and PHP issues, thus allowing users to observe and respond to errors quickly.

The update extends the capabilities of pattern recognition for Ruby exception messages, and introduces pattern recognition for Python and PHP exception messages. The algorithm will now enrich the error payload with community information and group it more accurately.

How to get the updates:

  1. Existing projects with auto-upgrade and new projects get the patterns automatically
  2. To get it and enable auto-upgrades, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping, check "Enable auto-upgrade for future improvements", and click "Save settings."
  3. To get it without auto-upgrades, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping and click "Upgrade to latest".

Introducing August 2020 JavaScript Grouping Update

We are happy to announce the August 2020 JavaScript Grouping Update that significantly improves the grouping accuracy of JavaScript issues, thus allowing users to observe and respond to errors quickly.

The Update includes two critical improvements:

  • pattern recognition in JavaScript messages allows the algorithm to enrich the error payload with community information and group it more accurately
  • intelligent recognition of minified frames without appropriate source maps reduces significant noise

How to get the updates:

  1. Existing projects with auto-upgrade and new projects get the patterns automatically
  2. To get it and enable auto-upgrades, go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping, check "Enable auto-upgrade for future improvements", and click "Save settings."
  3. To get it without auto-upgrades go to Settings → Upgrade Grouping and click "Upgrade to latest".

Announcing our new Java Spring SDK

Rollbar now supports Spring through our new Java Spring SDK. You can iterate and release even faster with the libraries you already use by integrating Rollbar with existing Spring applications.

  • Exceptions raised by Spring are handled automatically by Rollbar
  • See relevant code context with telemetry, local variables, stack traces, and git blame
  • SDK includes example integrations for Spring Boot and MVC

Get the SDK from the "rollbar-java" repo on GitHub and more details are on the blog, "Introducing our new Java Spring Error Monitoring SDK"

Introducing June 2020 Grouping Update

We’re excited to announce the June 2020 Grouping Update. This is the first versioned update and replaces Grouping Migrations. It contains all existing grouping improvements in one package. Going forward versioned Grouping Updates simplify getting the most accurate grouping with one click.

With a single click you get:

  • Improved algorithm for grouping Browser JavaScript errors
  • Improved algorithm for grouping Android errors
  • React.js Error Message Unminification
  • Missing jQuery recognition
  • JavaScript Source Maps translations with untangled method names
  • Recursive call chain recognition
  • Improved data scrubbing
  • Grouping by scrubbed exception message of traces without frames
  • Ruby message pattern recognition

Don’t forget to enable auto-upgrade to be the first to get the most accurate grouping every time we update it!

To activate it go to Settings -> Setup -> Upgrade Grouping
