Inbound filter for client's IP address doesn't work?


We have a Ruby on Rails 3.2 application using the sentry-raven gem 2.1.4. We’re having lots of errors from a client (it’s a known inhouse script actually) that we want to ignore in Sentry.

I’ve setup the inbound filter for the specific IP address in the project settings. However the errors generated by this client do not get caught by the inbound filter.

Can I use the inbound filter for this client’s IP?

Please let me know. Thanks!

If the client IP is the SDK that’s generating the issue it should work fine. That said, given its Ruby, the IP which is generating it is almost certainly the server itself. The filter is intended to be used to prevent run-away devices from reporting errors to you which you don’t control.
