Sentry Netlify build plugin    

Automatically upload source maps and notify Sentry of new releases being deployed to your site after it finishes building in Netlify.

The Sentry Netlify build plugin:

  • Notifies Sentry of new releases being deployed.
  • Uploads source maps to Sentry.
  • Sends Sentry the commit SHA of HEAD to enable commit features.

Before proceeding, you'll first want to ensure that your Sentry project is set up properly to track commit metadata. The easiest way to do that is to install a repository integration.

Make sure build plugins are enabled on your site to see the plugin run.


UI Installation

To install plugins via the Netlify UI, go to your team sites list and select the Plugins tab (or follow this direct link to the plugins directory). Then find "Sentry Build Plugin" and click Install.

UI installation is the recommended way to install this Build Plugin unless you need advanced configuration.

File-based Installation

Alternatively, to install with file-based installation, add the following lines to your netlify.toml file:

  package = "@sentry/netlify-build-plugin"

    sentryOrg = ""
    sentryProject = ""

Note: The [[plugins]] line is required for each plugin installed via file-based installation, even if you have other plugins in your netlify.toml file already.

Create a Sentry Internal Integration

For Netlify to communicate securely with Sentry, you'll need to create a new internal integration. In Sentry, navigate to: Settings > Developer Settings > New Internal Integration.

Give your new integration a name (for example, “Netlify Deploy Integration”) and specify the necessary permissions. In this case, we need Admin access for “Release” and Read access for “Organization”.

View of internal integration permissions.

Click “Save” at the bottom of the page and grab your token, which you’ll need this in the next step.

Set Environment Variables in Netlify

Save the internal integration token and any other environment variables as site environment variables:

  1. In Netlify, go to your site's settings.
  2. Click on "Build & deploy".
  3. Click “Edit variables” and add SENTRY_AUTH_TOKEN, SENTRY_ORG, and SENTRY_PROJECT with their respective values. For more configuration options see the environment variables section below.
  4. Click "Save".

For more information about the parameters below, please see the Sentry release management docs.

Ensure Your SDK is Configured

To link errors with releases, you must include a release ID (a.k.a version) where you configure your client SDK. For more information, read our documentation on configuring your SDK for releases.

Environment Variables

You can use site environment variables to configure these values: | name | description | default | |------|-------------|---------| | SENTRY_AUTH_TOKEN | Authentication token for Sentry. | - | | SENTRY_ORG | The slug of the organization name in Sentry. | - | | SENTRY_PROJECT | The slug of the project name in Sentry. | - | | SENTRY_RELEASE | The release ID (a.k.a version). | COMMIT_REF | | SENTRY_ENVIRONMENT | The name of the environment being deployed to. | Netlify deploy context | | SENTRY_RELEASE_PREFIX | Set this to prefix the release name with the value. | - |
