Sentry announced new capabilities that significantly reduce management overhead and accelerate issue response times for enterprise development teams.

With percent-based alerts, Code Owners for GitHub and GitLab, team and personal notifications in Slack, and SCIM support for Okta, teams can find the right people at the right time to fix the right issues, streamline workflows, and improve developer efficiency.

Sentry’s new capabilities help scale code observability to all app development teams so that enterprises can move faster with less risk and reduce operational overhead.

“Successful teams innovate rapidly to deliver a standout product experience, resulting in more and frequent code changes. Getting to the bottom of issues requires figuring out the who behind the code, which is core to our focus on accelerating actionable resolution,” said Milin Desai, CEO, Sentry. “Building deeper workflows into GitHub, Slack, and Okta allows for developers to quickly see the issues that matter and solve them faster so they can get back to writing code that delivers business value.”

Sentry’s new capabilities enable enterprise teams to:

- See the issues that matter with percent-based alerting: Teams can identify and prioritize issues based on user impact by setting alerts when an issue exceeds a certain percentage of user sessions within a time period. For companies with variable or seasonal usage, count-based alerts can lead to noisier environments. Percent-based alerts reduce the noise by adjusting to changes in app usage so teams can quickly identify the right problem at the right time.

- Solve issues faster with Code Owners and Slack notifications: Managers and product owners can save time assigning issues by integrating directly with the CODEOWNERS file in GitHub or GitLab. Teams can automatically route error notifications to the right person or team with no additional configuration. Once set up, alerts go directly to the corresponding individual or team who owns the code with Personal and Team notifications in Slack, reducing notification fatigue, accelerating response time, and preventing missed issues.

- Automate Sentry access with SCIM support for Okta: Managers and IT departments can automatically provision and deprovision users and teams directly through Okta. SCIM streamlines user provisioning tasks while reducing security risks so engineers can get up and running quickly with the tools they need.

These new capabilities build on Sentry’s ecosystem support and analytics features that development teams need to scale their code observability practices and efficiently manage application code health from the frontend to the backend. Other recently released enterprise features include customizable dashboards and updates to its Jira and Azure DevOps integrations.
