Learn more about Sentry's Discord integration, which allows you to manage Sentry issues in Discord.

Set up a Discord integration so you can get notified about, then triage, resolve, and archive Sentry issues directly from Discord.

Sentry owner, manager, or admin permissions are required to install this integration.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Integrations > Discord in Sentry.

  2. Click "Add Installation". You should see a pop up window.

    Install Discord integration

  3. Log in to your Discord account. If you're already logged in, this login step will not be displayed.

  4. Use the dropdown menu to select the Discord server you'd like to add Sentry to and click "Continue".

    You'll need to have the "Manage Server" permission enabled for your Discord account in the server you're trying to add the bot to.

    Select server

  5. Once you've selected the server, click "Authorize" to create the integration and add the Sentry Discord bot.

Your Discord integration will now be available for all projects in your Sentry organization.

Our Discord integration currently supports issue and metric alert rules. Support for personal notifications is planned for future updates.

To create an issue alert that sends notifications to Discord, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Alerts page in Sentry and click "Create Alert".

  2. Select "Issues" and then click "Set Conditions".

    Create issue alert

  3. Configure your issue alert conditions.

  4. Select "Send a Discord notification" from the "THEN" actions dropdown.

  5. Choose the Discord server and channel you'd like to send the alert to. You'll also have the option to specify any tags you'd like to include in the notification.

Note that the channel field must be filled in with a Discord channel ID or channel URL, not a channel name. To get the URL, right click on your channel, select "Copy Link".

  1. Test your configuration by clicking "Send Test Notification". If the bot has access to the given channel, you should see an example notification there.

To set up a metric alert that sends Discord notifications, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to the Alerts page in Sentry and click "Create Alert".

  2. Select "Number of Errors" or "Users Experiencing Errors", then "Set Conditions".

  3. Configure your metric alert conditions as desired.

  4. Click "Add Action", then select your Discord server from the second dropdown.

  5. Add the channel ID you'd like to send the alert to.

Note that the channel field must be filled in with a Discord channel ID, not a channel name. To get it, right click on your channel, select "Copy Link", then highlight the string of numbers at the end.

Discord Channel Link

For example, if the URL is https://discord.com/channels/server-id/channel-id, the ID is channel-id.

  1. Name and save your alert rule.

Having your Discord account linked to your Sentry account allows you to resolve, archive, and assign issues directly in Discord.

When a user installs the Discord bot to their server, their identity gets linked in the process. To verify which Sentry account a Discord account is linked to, use the /link command.

Any user on a Discord server with the Sentry bot can link their account. To do so, use the /link command. The bot will reply with a link to our identity linking page. When you open the link, be sure you're signed into the Sentry account you want to link to, then click "Link with Discord".

Discord identity linking page

To unlink your accounts, use the /unlink command. Follow the link and click "Unlink from Discord"

Here are some ideas to help with troubleshooting.

If you're trying to create an alert with a Discord action and Sentry can't access the channel you've provided, please double-check the following:

  • You're giving us a channel ID and not a channel name or something else. See Configure for more details.
  • Your channel URL has no extra slashes.
  • The channel you're trying to add is in the same server as the one selected in the alert action.
  • The bot has access to the channel you're trying to use. A quick way to verify this is to check whether you can find the bot in the desired channel's member list. If you don't see the bot in the list of users, you may need to update your Discord role and/or channel permissions to allow the bot access. See Install for more details.
