May 2021 Grouping Update

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

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

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

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

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".

March 2021 Terraform Partnership

We’re happy to announce our new partnership with terraform.io!

Rollbar enables Terraform to control resources on Rollbar.com in order to save you time and reduce the risk of human error. This integration will allow you to automate administrative processes such as:

  • Creating, editing, deletion of projects, users, and teams.
  • Automation of account token rotation.

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.

February 2021 Javascript Grouping Update

Rollbar is happy to announce the February 2021 Javascript Grouping Update that significantly improves grouping accuracy for Javascript issues, thus allowing users to discover and respond to errors more quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 548 frequently occurring error types that cause 51% of crashes in 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".

January 2021 Node.js Local Variables Capture

We are happy to announce support for capturing local stack variables in Node.js stack traces.

This update allows capturing the current values of local variables at the time of an exception or promise rejection, for all frames in the call stack. It also allows expanding objects and arrays to an arbitrary depth as specified in the Rollbar configuration.

To enable it, set the locals option in the Node.js Rollbar config, as described here.

January 2021 C# Grouping Update

The Intelligence Team is happy to announce the January 2021 C# Grouping Update that significantly improves grouping accuracy for C# issues, thus allowing users to discover and respond to errors more quickly.

This update improves grouping accuracy on 230 frequently occurring error types that cause most crashes in C#. 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 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.
