package bugsnag

import "github.com/bugsnag/bugsnag-go"

Package bugsnag captures errors in real-time and reports them to Bugsnag (http://bugsnag.com).

Using bugsnag-go is a three-step process.

1. As early as possible in your program configure the notifier with your APIKey. This sets up handling of panics that would otherwise crash your app.

func init() {
	bugsnag.Configure(bugsnag.Configuration{
		APIKey: "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE",
	})
}

2. Add bugsnag to places that already catch panics. For example you should add it to the HTTP server when you call ListenAndServer:

http.ListenAndServe(":8080", bugsnag.Handler(nil))

If that's not possible, for example because you're using Google App Engine, you can also wrap each HTTP handler manually:

http.HandleFunc("/" bugsnag.HandlerFunc(func (w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
	...
})

3. To notify Bugsnag of an error that is not a panic, pass it to bugsnag.Notify. This will also log the error message using the configured Logger.

if err != nil {
	bugsnag.Notify(err)
}

For detailed integration instructions see https://bugsnag.com/docs/notifiers/go.

Configuration

The only required configuration is the Bugsnag API key which can be obtained by clicking "Settings" on the top of https://bugsnag.com/ after signing up. We also recommend you set the ReleaseStage, AppType, and AppVersion if these make sense for your deployment workflow.

RawData

If you need to attach extra data to Bugsnag notifications you can do that using the rawData mechanism. Most of the functions that send errors to Bugsnag allow you to pass in any number of interface{} values as rawData. The rawData can consist of the Severity, Context, User or MetaData types listed below, and there is also builtin support for *http.Requests.

bugsnag.Notify(err, bugsnag.SeverityError)

If you want to add custom tabs to your bugsnag dashboard you can pass any value in as rawData, and then process it into the event's metadata using a bugsnag.OnBeforeNotify() hook.

bugsnag.Notify(err, account)

bugsnag.OnBeforeNotify(func (e *bugsnag.Event, c *bugsnag.Configuration) {
	for datum := range e.RawData {
		if account, ok := datum.(Account); ok {
			e.MetaData.Add("account", "name", account.Name)
			e.MetaData.Add("account", "url", account.URL)
		}
	}
})

If necessary you can pass Configuration in as rawData, or modify the Configuration object passed into OnBeforeNotify hooks. Configuration passed in this way only affects the current notification.

Variables

var (
    SeverityError   = severity{"error"}
    SeverityWarning = severity{"warning"}
    SeverityInfo    = severity{"info"}
)

Sets the severity of the error on Bugsnag. These values can be passed to Notify, Recover or AutoNotify as rawData.

func AutoNotify Uses

func AutoNotify(rawData ...interface{})

AutoNotify logs a panic on a goroutine and then repanics. It should only be used in places that have existing panic handlers further up the stack. The rawData is used to send extra information along with any panics that are handled this way. Usage:

 go func() {
		defer bugsnag.AutoNotify()
     // (possibly crashy code)
 }()

See also: bugsnag.Recover()

Code:

f := func(w http.ResponseWriter, request *http.Request) {
    defer AutoNotify(request, Context{"createAccount"})

    createAccount(w, request)
}
var w http.ResponseWriter
var request *http.Request
f(w, request)

Output:

Handling GET

func Configure Uses

func Configure(config Configuration)

Configure Bugsnag. The only required setting is the APIKey, which can be obtained by clicking on "Settings" in your Bugsnag dashboard. This function is also responsible for installing the global panic handler, so it should be called as early as possible in your initialization process.

Code:

Configure(Configuration{
    APIKey: "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE",

    ReleaseStage: "production",

    // See Configuration{} for other fields
})

func Handler Uses

func Handler(h http.Handler, rawData ...interface{}) http.Handler

Handler creates an http Handler that notifies Bugsnag any panics that happen. It then repanics so that the default http Server panic handler can handle the panic too. The rawData is used to send extra information along with any panics that are handled this way.

Code:

// Set up your http handlers as usual
http.HandleFunc("/", handleGet)

// use bugsnag.Handler(nil) to wrap the default http handlers
// so that Bugsnag is automatically notified about panics.
http.ListenAndServe(":1234", Handler(nil))

Code:

// If you're using custom handlers, wrap the handlers explicitly.
handler := http.NewServeMux()
http.HandleFunc("/", handleGet)
// use bugsnag.Handler(handler) to wrap the handlers so that Bugsnag is
// automatically notified about panics
http.ListenAndServe(":1234", Handler(handler))

Code:

// If you're using a custom server, set the handlers explicitly.
http.HandleFunc("/", handleGet)

srv := http.Server{
    Addr:        ":1234",
    ReadTimeout: 10 * time.Second,
    // use bugsnag.Handler(nil) to wrap the default http handlers
    // so that Bugsnag is automatically notified about panics.
    Handler: Handler(nil),
}
srv.ListenAndServe()

func HandlerFunc Uses

func HandlerFunc(h http.HandlerFunc, rawData ...interface{}) http.HandlerFunc

HandlerFunc creates an http HandlerFunc that notifies Bugsnag about any panics that happen. It then repanics so that the default http Server panic handler can handle the panic too. The rawData is used to send extra information along with any panics that are handled this way. If you have already wrapped your http server using bugsnag.Handler() you don't also need to wrap each HandlerFunc.

func Notify Uses

func Notify(err error, rawData ...interface{}) error

Notify sends an error to Bugsnag along with the current stack trace. The rawData is used to send extra information along with the error. For example you can pass the current http.Request to Bugsnag to see information about it in the dashboard, or set the severity of the notification.

Code:

_, err := net.Listen("tcp", ":80")

if err != nil {
    Notify(err)
}

Code:

_, err := net.Listen("tcp", ":80")
userID := "123456789"

if err != nil {
    Notify(err,
        // show as low-severity
        SeverityInfo,
        // set the context
        Context{"createlistener"},
        // pass the user id in to count users affected.
        User{Id: userID},
        // custom meta-data tab
        MetaData{
            "Listen": {
                "Protocol": "tcp",
                "Port":     "80",
            },
        },
    )
}

func OnBeforeNotify Uses

func OnBeforeNotify(callback func(event *Event, config *Configuration) error)

OnBeforeNotify adds a callback to be run before a notification is sent to Bugsnag. It can be used to modify the event or its MetaData. Changes made to the configuration are local to notifying about this event. To prevent the event from being sent to Bugsnag return an error, this error will be returned from bugsnag.Notify() and the event will not be sent.

Code:

OnBeforeNotify(func(event *Event, config *Configuration) error {

    // Search all the RawData for any *Job pointers that we're passed in
    // to bugsnag.Notify() and friends.
    for _, datum := range event.RawData {
        if job, ok := datum.(*Job); ok {
            // don't notify bugsnag about errors in retries
            if job.Retry {
                return fmt.Errorf("bugsnag middleware: not notifying about job retry")
            }

            // add the job as a tab on Bugsnag.com
            event.MetaData.AddStruct("Job", job)

            // set the user correctly
            event.User = &User{Id: job.UserId, Email: job.UserEmail}
        }
    }

    // continue notifying as normal
    return nil
})

func Recover Uses

func Recover(rawData ...interface{})

Recover logs a panic on a goroutine and then recovers. The rawData is used to send extra information along with any panics that are handled this way Usage: defer bugsnag.Recover()

Code:

job := _job{
    Name: "Example",
    Process: func() {
        fmt.Println("About to panic")
        panic("Oh noes")
    },
}

func() {
    defer Recover(Configuration{Endpoint: testEndpoint, APIKey: testAPIKey})
    job.Process()
}()
fmt.Println("Panic recovered")

Output:

About to panic
Panic recovered

    // only send notifications to Bugsnag if the ReleaseStage is listed here.
    NotifyReleaseStages []string

    // packages that are part of your app. Bugsnag uses this to determine how
    // to group errors and how to display them on your dashboard. You should
    // include any packages that are part of your app, and exclude libraries
    // and helpers. You can list wildcards here, and they'll be expanded using
    // filepath.Glob. The default value is []string{"main*"}
    ProjectPackages []string

    // The SourceRoot is the directory where the application is built, and the
    // assumed prefix of lines on the stacktrace originating in the parent
    // application. When set, the prefix is trimmed from callstack file names
    // before ProjectPackages for better readability and to better group errors
    // on the Bugsnag dashboard. The default value is $GOPATH/src or $GOROOT/src
    // if $GOPATH is unset. At runtime, $GOROOT is the root used during the Go
    // build.
    SourceRoot string

    // Any meta-data that matches these filters will be marked as [REDACTED]
    // before sending a Notification to Bugsnag. It defaults to
    // []string{"password", "secret"} so that request parameters like password,
    // password_confirmation and auth_secret will not be sent to Bugsnag.
    ParamsFilters []string

    // The PanicHandler is used by Bugsnag to catch unhandled panics in your
    // application. The default panicHandler uses mitchellh's panicwrap library,
    // and you can disable this feature by passing an empty: func() {}
    PanicHandler func()

    // The logger that Bugsnag should log to. Uses the same defaults as go's
    // builtin logging package. bugsnag-go logs whenever it notifies Bugsnag
    // of an error, and when any error occurs inside the library itself.
    Logger interface {
        Printf(format string, v ...interface{}) // limited to the functions used
    }
    // The http Transport to use, defaults to the default http Transport. This
    // can be configured if you are in an environment like Google App Engine
    // that has stringent conditions on making http requests.
    Transport http.RoundTripper
    // Whether bugsnag should notify synchronously. This defaults to false which
    // causes bugsnag-go to spawn a new goroutine for each notification.
    Synchronous bool
}

Configuration sets up and customizes communication with the Bugsnag API.

var Config Configuration

The configuration for the default bugsnag notifier.

    Context string
    // The severity of the error. Can be SeverityError, SeverityWarning or SeverityInfo.
    Severity severity
    // The grouping hash is used to override Bugsnag's grouping. Set this if you'd like all errors with
    // the same grouping hash to group together in the dashboard.
    GroupingHash string

Code:

notifier.Notify(errors.Errorf("hi world"),
    MetaData{"Account": {
        "id":      account.ID,

    }})

func (MetaData) Add Uses

func (meta MetaData) Add(tab string, key string, value interface{})

func (MetaData) AddStruct Uses

func (meta MetaData) AddStruct(tab string, obj interface{})

AddStruct creates a tab of Bugsnag meta-data. The struct will be converted to an Object using the reflect library so any private fields will not be exported. As a safety measure, if you pass a non-struct the value will be sent to Bugsnag under the "Extra data" tab.

func (MetaData) Update Uses

func (meta MetaData) Update(other MetaData)

Update the meta-data with more information. Tabs are merged together such that unique keys from both sides are preserved, and duplicate keys end up with the provided values.

type Notifier Uses

type Notifier struct {
    Config  *Configuration
    RawData []interface{}
}

Notifier sends errors to Bugsnag.

func New Uses

func New(rawData ...interface{}) *Notifier

New creates a new notifier. You can pass an instance of bugsnag.Configuration in rawData to change the configuration. Other values of rawData will be passed to Notify.

func (*Notifier) AutoNotify Uses

func (notifier *Notifier) AutoNotify(rawData ...interface{})

AutoNotify notifies Bugsnag of any panics, then repanics. It sends along any rawData that gets passed in. Usage:

 go func() {
		defer AutoNotify()
     // (possibly crashy code)
 }()

func (*Notifier) Notify Uses

func (notifier *Notifier) Notify(err error, rawData ...interface{}) (e error)

Notify sends an error to Bugsnag. Any rawData you pass here will be sent to Bugsnag after being converted to JSON. e.g. bugsnag.SeverityError, bugsnag.Context, or bugsnag.MetaData.

func (*Notifier) NotifySync Uses

func (notifier *Notifier) NotifySync(err error, synchronous bool, rawData ...interface{}) (e error)

NotifySync sends an error to Bugsnag. The synchronous parameter specifies whether to send the report in the current context. Any rawData you pass here will be sent to Bugsnag after being converted to JSON. e.g. bugsnag.SeverityError, bugsnag.Context, or bugsnag.MetaData.

func (*Notifier) Recover Uses

func (notifier *Notifier) Recover(rawData ...interface{})

Recover logs any panics, then recovers. It sends along any rawData that gets passed in. Usage: defer Recover()

type SeverityReason Uses

type SeverityReason string

type User Uses

type User struct {
    Id    string `json:"id,omitempty"`
    Name  string `json:"name,omitempty"`
    Email string `json:"email,omitempty"`
