GitLab Integration and More New Features at Honeybadger

As fall arrives, our thoughts turn to cozy sweaters, pumpkin-spice lattes, and wicked new Honeybadger features. We're particularly proud of our new GitLab integration.

More and more people are moving to GitLab these days, drawn by the privacy of a self-hosted solution or by its growing suite of developer tools. With this release Honeybadger supports your self-hosted or managed GitLab, just like we've always supported GitHub and BitBucket.

Easy Code Navigation

When you link your GitLab account to Honeybadger, each line of your backtrace will link out to the appropriate line of code in your project repository.

Automatic Issue Sync

Whenever your app reports an error to Honeybadger for the first time, a new issue is automatically created in your project. When the error is resolved, we close the issue for you. You can also do all of this manually via our UI.

More New Features

In addition to the GitLab Integration, we've shipped several other features and updates this quarter:

  • New Google Hangouts Chat Integration: If your team uses Hangouts for chat, you now have the option to receive error right there in chat, just like those hipsters using Slack.
  • Metrics in Datadog: You now have the option to send error rate data to Datadog (docs).
  • Bulk Resolve via API: You can resolve lots of errors at once using our new API endpoint.
  • Released honeybadger-ruby v4.0.0: Now there's a much more powerful way to programmatically manipulate error reports before they're sent. See the blog post.
