Daily, Hourly, New Errors and Trend graphs are now clickable

Posted by Mike Smith on March 10, 2015 · product

Yes, that's correct.

Daily, Hourly, New Errors, and Trend graphs are now clickable. You can find and fix bugs even faster, and in less clicks. :D

Common usability feedback we get from our users:


Sure would be nice if I could click the dashboard bar graphs and sparklines to quickly see what caused a spike in error events etc.


Couldn't agree more. We love aggregating data and we love it clickable. So we enabled it!

The infrastructure behind most modern web applications includes an assortment of tools for collecting server and application metrics, logging events, aggregating logs, and providing alerts. Most systems are made up of a collection of best-in-class tools and services, selected and deployed over time as team members arrive and depart, needs change, the system grows, and new tools are introduced. One of the challenges web development and operations teams face is collecting and analyzing data from these disparate sources and systems and then piecing together what’s happening by looking at multiple reports and dashboards.

Assign errors to your team

Posted by Mike Smith on February 26, 2015

Ever wanted to assign error items to other team members in Rollbar? Of course you have. Now you can. It is a pretty straight forward enhancement, but here is an overview. 

On the error ‘items’ details page, there's an “Assigned to" dropdown with the members of your team. Once assigned, we’ll shoot an email to that team member letting them know you assigned that specific item to them, including link and details.
