That's a very long name, but at least we know what it does.

Latest Stable Version

Once installed, this bundle will open/update an issue on your GitLab repository when an exception is thrown:


  • We build the issue title from the exception file, line and message
  • If an issue exists with this title, we'll update it
  • We put some relevant information in the issue body (request method (GET, POST, ...) & URI, logged in user, stacktrace)
  • We add/update a comment: "Thrown 3 times, last one was 14/07/2016 09:37:47"


  1. Add this bundle to your project:

    composer require chteuchteu/symfony-exceptions-2-gitlab-issues-bundle
  2. Register this bundle in symfony's kernel:

    // app/AppKernel.php
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...
            new Chteuchteu\SymExc2GtlbIsuBndle\SymfonyExceptions2GitLabIssuesBundle(),
  3. Generate a GitLab API token. Navigate to (replace the URL with your instance's if necessary, but don't miss the /profile part), then "Personal Access Tokens".

    You can name it whatever you want, but "SymfonyExceptions2GitLabIssuesBundle" seems to be a great name.

    Note: you can share this token between several projects.

  4. Configure this bundle inside your project:

    # config.yml
        gitlab_token: (put your token here)
        project: your_project_name
            - Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Exception\NotFoundHttpException

    Note: if you're using, you can actually skip the gitlab_api_url. If not, don't forget the /api/v3/ part.

  5. Deploy your app in production, and trigger an exception. An issue should be waiting for you in your GitLab repository.

  6. (optional) Customize the excluded_exceptions node to include/exclude exceptions from being handled by this bundle. By default (if the excluded_exceptions isn't specified), all exceptions are handled.


Here are some more things you can configure. Just add these items to your config.yml, under the sym_exc_2_gtlb_isu_bndle node.

  • reopen_closed_issues - boolean, default true:

    When set to true, any closed issue will be reopened when a matching exception is caught.

  • excluded_environments - array, default ['dev', 'test']:

    When encountering an exception in one of these environments, we won't report anything to your GitLab repository.

    Tip: include back the dev environment (excluded_environments: []) to test this bundle without deploying to prod!

  • excluded_exceptions - array, default []:

    Array of FQCN (fully qualified class name) of exceptions to ignore.

    Tip: add Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Exception\NotFoundHttpException to ignore 404 exceptions.

  • mentions - array, default []:

    GitLab users to be mentioned in the issue body. Example: ['user1', 'user2', 'user3'] will append "Mentions: @user1 @user2 @user3" at the end of the message.


  • Make more things configurable:
    • Issue body template
    • Comment datetime format?
  • Handle pagination when finding issue
  • Test mode
  • Help diagnose problems (monolog logging)
