Post deploy health check with Rails application

Once I’ve integrated Sentry into my Rails application, how can I check if the application has a working connection with Sentry after every deploy in production? I’m looking for a comprehensive check to make sure that when the application raises an error, it will go through as designed.

  1. enabling releases will only notify Sentry from the deployment tooling (Jenkins in our case)

  2. I read about health check ping, but that will only verify credentials.

  3. Sentry docs talks about health monitoring, what would be the URL to ping in that case?

  4. Last resort would be to create a custom rake task that fakes an error in the system.
