Error Tracking for Web and Mobile Applications


It is critical for your system’s health to consistently monitor the errors collected by Datadog. When there are many individual error events, it becomes hard to prioritize errors for troubleshooting. By tracking, triaging, and debugging crashes, you can minimize the impact of fatal errors on your web and mobile applications’ user experience.

Once you have set up RUM for Web and Mobile Apps error tracking, the issue list populates with cards. Navigate to UX Monitoring > Error Tracking to view open, ignored, or all issues, sort issues by volume or age, and filter issues by all custom and default facets on your web and mobile applications.

Error Tracking enables you to:

  • Set alerts on Error Tracking events. This helps you to remain informed of fatal issues that may occur.
  • Group similar errors into issues, so that you can more easily identify important errors and reduce noise.
  • Follow issues over time to know when they first started, if they are still ongoing, and how often they are occurring.
  • Collect all the necessary context in one place to facilitate troubleshooting.
