This is a middleware for Guzzle 7 that leaves Bugsnag breadcrumbs for all requests.

⚠️ Please make sure you don't log sensitive information to Bugsnag and properly configure this middleware to redact secrets. ⚠️


Via Composer

composer require swisnl/guzzle-bugsnag-breadcrumbs-middleware


use Bugsnag\Client as Bugsnag;
use GuzzleHttp\Client as Guzzle;
use GuzzleHttp\HandlerStack;
use Swis\Guzzle\Bugsnag\BreadcrumbMiddleware;

$bugsnag = Bugsnag::make();

$stack = HandlerStack::create();
$stack->push(new BreadcrumbMiddleware($bugsnag));
$client = new Guzzle(['handler' => $stack]);

Now when you send a request, a Bugsnag breadcrumb is logged with the following metadata:

  • method
  • uri
  • status code
  • response body (summary), in case of client or server exceptions (status code >= 400)
  • duration


Using Laravel? Simply use the factory method to create the middleware from the Bugsnag facade: BreadcrumbMiddleware::fromFacade().


You can configure the middleware using the constructor arguments:


Your (preconfigured) Bugsnag client.


The name of the breadcrumb.


A list of secret strings, such as API keys, that should be filtered out of the metadata.


The length of the response body summary, which is added to the breadcrumb in case of client or server exceptions. Use null to disable logging response/request body.

By default, it does not log the request body and only logs the response body in case of client or server exceptions (status code >= 400). If you'd like to change this behaviour, you can provide your own GuzzleHttp\BodySummarizerInterface implementation. You can use the default GuzzleHttp\BodySummarizer for example, to log all request and response bodies. Please be aware not to log sensitive information!
