Backend Error Monitoring

Follow this tutorial to set up Sentry to monitor errors for a sample Python backend application. By the end, you'll be able to configure the SDK for your needs and enrich your event data.

This step-by-step tutorial walks you through the flow of setting up and configuring your Sentry account to monitor errors in your Python backend application. As part of this tutorial, you will:

  • Add basic configurations to the Sentry SDK
  • Monitor various types of events and errors to Sentry
  • Implement error tracing between your frontend and backend applications

This tutorial uses a sample Django application. This allows us to streamline the steps required to getting the maximum value out of integrating Sentry into your development workflow.

Alternatively, you can follow this guide as a reference and apply the relevant changes directly to your source code.
