Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Latest Unstable Version License


Enables Bugsnag integration into your Symfony application, using the bugsnag-php 2.x library from Bugsnag.


The recommended way of installing this bundle is using Composer.

Add this repository to your composer information using the following command

composer require "evolution7/bugsnag-bundle:~2.0"

Add the bundle to your AppKernel.php:

$bundles = array(
    //Other Bundles
    new Evolution7\BugsnagBundle\BugsnagBundle(),

Define your Bugsnag API key in the config.yml

    api_key: YOUR-API-KEY


After the installation the bundle works without any additional settings required, but you can tweak some settings.

Enabled Stages

You can set for which Symfony environments (kernel.environment) you want Bugsnag to be enabled. This is done through the enabled_stages setting:

    enabled_stages: [dev, prod, staging]

These environments should match the environment as set in your application's web/app.php, web/app_dev.php and/or app/console. The default is to report bugs for the prod environment only.

Notify Stages

You can set for which environments you want Bugsnag to get error reports. This is done with the notify_stages setting:

    notify_stages: [development, staging, production]

The default is to report bugs in staging and production environments.


If your server requires you to access Bugsnag through a proxy, you can set this up easily as well. Just use the following example to configure the settings you need in your config.yml:

        host: www.bugsnag.com
        port: 42
        user: username
        password: password

The only of these settings that is mandatory is the host, all others can be left out if they aren't required.


If you tag your app releases with version numbers, Bugsnag can display these on your dashboard if you set this:

    app_version: v1.2.3


Included in the bundle is a controller that will allow you to test if your site is hooked up correctly. Just add the following to your routing.yml:

    resource: "@BugsnagBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"
    prefix:   /bugsnagtest

And then afterwards you can access your.domain/bugsnagtest/exception and your.domain/bugsnagtest/error which should then send errors to your configured Bugsnag project.

Advanced Usage

Release Stage Class

Bugsnag allows you to determine which release stage you are currently in, the Evolution7BugsnagBundle uses a ReleaseStage class for this which determines this based on the path. Depending on your setup you might want to have a different way of determining this, in which case it is possible to override this by providing your own ReleaseStage class. You can implement a class that implements the Evolution7\BugsnagBundle\ReleaseStage\ReleaseStageInterface and provide its name as a parameter in your config.yml

        class: Your\Name\Space\ClassName

User Information

Bugsnag gives the possibility to give userdata as additional information to a request. If you give an id, name or email these fields will be searchable. Other fields are allowed but not searchable - they will only be displayed. The bundle allows to set a user to array converter as a service which will be used to send user data. The given service must be an instance of \Evolution7\BugsnagBundle\UserInterface

# src/AppBundle/BugsnagUser.php
namespace AppBundle;

use Evolution7\BugsnagBundle\UserInterface as BugsnagUserInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Authentication\Token\Storage\TokenStorageInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Security\Core\User\UserInterface as SymfonyUserInterface;

class BugsnagUser implements BugsnagUserInterface
     * @var TokenStorageInterface
    private $token;

     * @param TokenStorageInterface $token
    public function __construct(TokenStorageInterface $token)
        $this->token = $token->getToken();

     * @inheritdoc
    public function getUserAsArray()
        if (
            || !$this->token->isAuthenticated()
            || !$this->token->getUser() instanceof SymfonyUserInterface
        ) {
            return [];

        $user = $this->token->getUser();

        return [
            'id' => $user->getId(),
            'name' => $user->getUsername(),
            'email' => $user->getEmail()
# services.yml
    class: AppBundle\BugsnagUser
    arguments: [@security.token_storage]
# app/config/config.yml
    user: app.bugsnag_user
