Duplicate events with allowDuplicates : false completely ignored?


While working with reporting errors/events to Sentry I noticed that duplicate events were not getting reported. Later I found this is for a reason and it can be disabled with allowDuplicates : true configuration setting.

However I was wondering, if allowDuplicates is not set, does it mean that duplicate events are getting completely ignored and there won’t be any trace of them altogether? Or maybe there’s still a counter for such updated and later sent to Sentry with a next non duplicate event?


Hey Victor,

They will be caught and processed (eg. you can still use dataCallback), but they won’t be stored anywhere, nor sent to Sentry.
