Sentry (Raven) error monitoring integration for Laravel projects. This library adds a listener to Laravel's logging component. Laravel's session information will be sent in to Sentry's user context, as well as some other helpful tags such as 'environment', 'server', and 'ip'.



Install using composer:

composer require jenssegers/raven

Add the service provider in app/config/app.php:


Optional: register the Raven alias:

'Raven'           => 'Jenssegers\Raven\Facades\Raven',


This package supports configuration through the services configuration file located in app/config/services.php. All configuration variables will be directly passed to Raven:

'raven' => [
    'dsn'   => 'your-raven-dsn',
    'level' => 'debug'

NOTE: You can also set the DSN using the RAVEN_DSN environment variable.

The level variable defines the minimum log level at which log messages are sent to Sentry. For development you could set this either to debug to send all log messages, or to none to sent no messages at all. For production you could set this to error so that all info and debug messages are ignored.

The Raven client is initiated with curl_method in async mode by default for best-effort asynchronous submissions. If you wish to change this behavior, then you can set curl_method to sync in your configuration array.

For more information about the possible configuration variables, check


To automatically monitor exceptions, simply use the Log facade in your error handler in app/Exceptions/Handler.php:

public function report(Exception $e)

    return parent::report($e);

For Laravel 4 installations, this is located in app/start/global.php:

App::error(function(Exception $exception, $code)

Your other log messages will also be sent to Sentry:

Log::debug('Here is some debug information');

Context informaton

You can pass user information as context like this:

Log::error('Something went wrong', [
    'user' => ['name' => 'John Doe', 'email' => '']

Or pass additional tags:

Log::info('Task completed', [
    'tags' => ['state' => 1234]

Or pass some extra information:

Log::warning('Something went wrong', [
    'download_size' => 3432425235
