Error Reporting


Enabling Error Reporting

NetBox supports native integration with Sentry for automatic error reporting. To enable this functionality, simply set SENTRY_ENABLED to True in Errors will be sent to a Sentry ingestor maintained by the NetBox team for analysis.


Using a Custom DSN

If you prefer instead to use your own Sentry ingestor, you'll need to first create a new project under your Sentry account to represent your NetBox deployment and obtain its corresponding data source name (DSN). This looks like a URL similar to the example below:

Once you have obtained a DSN, configure Sentry in NetBox's file with the following parameters:

SENTRY_DSN = "https://[email protected]/0"

Assigning Tags

You can optionally attach one or more arbitrary tags to the outgoing error reports if desired by setting the SENTRY_TAGS parameter:

    "": "123",
    "": "abc",

Reserved tag prefixes

Avoid using any tag names which begin with netbox., as this prefix is reserved by the NetBox application.


Once the configuration has been saved, restart the NetBox service.

To test Sentry operation, try generating a 404 (page not found) error by navigating to an invalid URL, such as https://netbox/404-error-testing. (Be sure that debug mode has been disabled.) After receiving a 404 response from the NetBox server, you should see the issue appear shortly in Sentry.
