Sentry error tracking

Tier: Free, Premium, Ultimate Offering:, Self-managed, GitLab Dedicated

Sentry is an open source error tracking system. GitLab enables administrators to connect Sentry to GitLab, so users can view a list of Sentry errors in GitLab.

When working with Error Tracking, you might encounter the following issues.

Error Connection failed. Check auth token and try again

If the Monitor feature is disabled in the project settings, you might see an error when you try to enable Sentry integration for a project. The resulting request to /project/path/-/error_tracking/projects.json?<token> returns a 404 error.

To fix this issue, enable the Monitor feature for the project.
