Send custom event to Sentry

Hello All,

I have configured sentry in my Ruby on Rails applications, I want to send custom events to Sentry and i am using something like

Raven.send_event({:message => 'Custom event'})

This works but I need to send additional custom information like user_name, email_id and other details which may vary from event to event.

Any help would be really great, Thanks.

Hi! Sounds like you’re looking for this:

HI @BYK, thanks for your message.

I managed to do it via,

    Raven.capture_message "message for user_id #{}",
      logger: 'logger',
      extra: {
      tags: {
        env: Rails.env

@AksharJ ah, never mind then and sorry for the trouble. I’m also still learning to use our forums so I’ll figure it out :slight_smile:
