Rollbar is an error tracking and monitoring platform that assists developers in identifying and resolving software issues quickly, enhancing application reliability. You can use a webhook in the Rollbar platform to forward errors, occurrences, and activities related events to the Sumo Logic HTTP endpoint. Using these logs, you can monitor details such as error messages, stack traces, affected endpoints, user information, and environment variables in Sumo Logic. For more details, refer to the Rollbar Documentation.

Event types

The Sumo Logic integration for Rollbar ingests Rollbar events into Sumo Logic through an outgoing webhook available in Rollbar. The following event types are ingested through the Rollbar webhook:

  • 10^nth occurrence
  • Deploy
  • Every occurrence
  • High occurrence rate
  • Item reactivated
  • Item reopened
  • Item resolved
  • New item
