Rollbar is happy to announce our official .NET error monitoring SDK. This new .NET SDK is more rreliable, supports all of the popular .NET platforms (NET Standard, .NET Framework, .NET Core, ASP.NET MVC, UWP, Mono, Xamarin), easy to configure, multithreading friendly, and more.
Rollbar helps you monitor errors in production applications. It provides you with a live error feed from your applications, including complete stack traces and contextual data to debug errors quickly. It also lets you easily understand your user experience by tracking who is affected by each error. Check out our features page to learn more about how it can help you.
At Rollbar, 2017 has been a year of exciting growth and development for the product and the team. We've grown the total number of users to over 100,000, processing billions of events per week, and the team has more than doubled in size. I know it's cliche, but, it genuinely does feel like we're just getting started. ;-)
Before we put this year behind us and speed into 2018, I thought we'd look back, and share some of the highlights of what we shipped in 2017.
In today’s world, you can hardly go a week without reading in the news about security breaches, malware, and more. We’ve already had headline news this year for Wanna Cry, and now there are dozens of copycat malware programs taking advantage of out-of-date systems. Think of all the services that your company uses from error monitoring to logging and APM. Some of them may be delivered by vendors and others set up by internal teams. Did your IT team evaluate these services to determine how secure they are? If not, you might want to reconsider the services you use or who can best deliver them.
We're excited to introduce merging (and un-merging) of errors! Merging errors lets you combine multiple errors into one 'group' for easier management and more accurate metrics. All past and future occurrences of any merged errors will automatically be combined and grouped. Today's merged errors are tomorrow's error groupings. :-)
When you encounter a duplicated error, you'll want to create a new 'group'. Select one or more errors from the same environment in the error Items feed. Slide the toggle in the box above to 'Merge', set appropriate Level, Status, Owner, and Source values, enter a name for the new item, and click 'Merge'. Done, error merge success!
Happy Holidays Rollbar users! 🎁 We're gifting you a handful of updates to a key feature in Rollbar, the Live Error Feed. We recently rolled out some improved fucntionality to the Live Error Feed, most notably the ability to quickly view and assign ownership of errors with your team. Instantly know who's working on what and ensure that urgent production issues don't get overlooked.
Here's an overview of how these updates will help you and your team members better manage errors in Rollbar:
Our friends at Split wanted to let you know that you can now integrate Rollbar with Split. And take control of your error handling and feature rollouts - together. Enjoy! :-)
Rollbar is an excellent error monitoring service that works across all of the languages Split supports. It’s great at telling you what’s going wrong and where, but doesn’t necessarily have all the details on why. That’s where Split comes in, with our new Rollbar integration.
We built Split to help teams take control of their deployments by slowly delivering features to targeted groups of users. In this way you can limit the scope of trouble when things do go wrong, killing the feature until it’s fixed, then slowly rolling it out again. Our new integration brings rollout metadata from features in Split into the Rollbar interface, so teams can quickly correlate errors against the latest deployments.
Dealing with errors can be time consuming and often an interruption in your everyday development workflow. It's important that we at Rollbar continue to work to improve this process and that we extend the capabilities and insights of your current toolset and workflows.
Atlassian users can now rejoice! 🎉 Debugging errors just got a whole lot easier and faster. With our latest improvements and integrations with Atlassian products you can now keep tabs on your application directly within the tools you're already using to build it. No more switching between multiple tools and services to debug and deploy code. Creating a seamless user experience and unified workflow around production errors.
Integrating Rollbar’s error monitoring with Atlassian’s products provides teams with:

We’ve recently released a new JIRA Add-On to help extend your application error monitoring workflow. JIRA is one of the leading issue tracking solutions used by agile teams. Enabling them to plan, track, release and support building better software.
Connect Rollbar to JIRA and enhance issues with detailed error data like stack trace, error status, total occurrences, unique IPs affected, first seen date, last seen date and the date the error reoccurred and regressed. All conveniently displayed, linked and accessible within JIRA.
Here are a few of the ways you can improve your monitoring workflow when you connect Rollbar with JIRA and install the new Rollbar for JIRA add-on:
Rollbar is better together and our latest account setting makes it easier to get everyone together. I'm happy to introduce Email Domain Whitelists.
Previously the only way to join your team on Rollbar was being invited via email. Admins had to send email invites one by one. This can be tough for large organizations and fast growing engineering teams.
With Email Domain Whitelists, now you can set an email domain whitelist, so that anyone with an address at a specified domain can join your account (once confirmed). No more one off invitations. Making the workflow for admins and new team members easier and less confusing.
