Issue Owners not explained very well, got few questions


I am trying to use Issue Owners feature.

What is really path? What is path inside sentry issue? How can I located it from image below?

Can I use regex like this one /some/path/?

If I define next rule url:* #product, does it mean that only #product team will receive errors although I have many more teams added to project?

Now here is my issue, I added next rule:

path:app/src/games/live_betting/* #team-frontend

But I am still receiving email although I am not part of #team-frontend.

This is how issue looks:

Thank you :slight_smile:

Based on the image you’ve provided, I can’t tell you what you’d want to use as path.

Path correlates to frames in the actual stacktrace. So a path is specifically matching against source code files.

In what you’ve shown, the only thing I can see is url. In which case your path rule won’t match against it.

You’d want a rule like url:http://localhost:20102/app/* #team-frontend or something to match here.

Specifically, check that url tag that you see in the screenshot.

Ah, I get it. So if this is one line in my stacktrace:

/app/src/games/live_betting/liveController.js in new <anonymous> at line 24:13

my path would be

/app/src/games/live_betting/** #team-frontend


I think it is working now.

We cannot use url as path type because app is running inside node-webkit.

That looks correct, though you can simply use * instead of ** (I dont think the behavior differs in our implementation).

Hi @seven-cd – docs for Issue Owners are now live:

Do the docs answer your questions? Is there anything we can clarify?

Yes, everything is clear now.

Awesome, thank you.

Actually one more question. Is it possible to set path like this (with prefix wildcard)

*/app/src/games/live_betting/* #team-frontend


Sorry for excavating this thread. But it perfectly fits my issue.

I’m integrating with Sentry through Serilog on ASP.NET Core platform. I want to configure issue owners for my project.

  1. Is there any way to assign entire project to specific users? Regardless of paths or urls. I don’t exactly know how integration works. But it seems that since each project is assigned its own unique DSN it should not be a problem, should it?
    Specifying path:* or url:* doesn’t help.

  2. Ok, I’m trying to solve my problem with existing features. I managed to configure issue owner in case of exception. Then relative path like path:*\UsersService\Controllers\UsersController.cs works fine. And in event’s JSON I see this: “abs_path”:“C:\Work\Projects\BackendMicroServices\UsersService\Controllers\UsersController.cs”

But now I want to configure the same for Error log message. I mean, not for exception but when my source code has such string:
logger.LogError("Test ownership in case of error log");
And then nothing helps to configure only myself as a n owner. Neither this path:*\UsersService\Controllers\UsersController.cs nor this url:*/api/v1.0/users/find* nor other variations of the latter. All users still receive e-mails.
In event’s JSON I see the only relevant record is “RequestPath”:"/api/v1.0/users/find" But as I said using this relative url doesn’t help.

How am I supposed to do this?
