Setting up Sentry crash reporting if you want to provide a reliable service, it’s extremely important to be aware of when things are going wrong on the website.

Sentry is a wonderful free system to catch Python exceptions.

For Django on Open edX, we use sentry-sdk to catch and report the errors back to Sentry.

  1. Set up a Sentry server or use existing Sentry .

  2. Set up two new services (LMS and Studio) in Sentry and get their DSN strings.

  3. On Open edX instance, install sentry-sdk using pip.

    sudo /edx/bin/pip.edxapp install sentry-sdk==1.2.0
    
  4. Then configure the SDK, initialize it with the Django integration in your settings.py file as per sentry instructions after create new services in Sentry.

    • /edx/app/edxapp/edx-platform/lms/envs/production.py
    • /edx/app/edxapp/edx-platform/cms/envs/production.py
  5. Restart edxapp service and worker.

    /edx/bin/supervisorctl restart lms cms edxapp_worker:
