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.

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.
