On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's SDK.

Sentry captures data by using an SDK within your application’s runtime.

Install the Sentry Capacitor SDK alongside the corresponding Sentry SDK for the framework you're using, such as Angular in this example:

# npm
npm install --save @sentry/capacitor @sentry/angular-ivy

# yarn
yarn add @sentry/capacitor @sentry/angular-ivy

Capacitor 2 - Android Specifics

Add the plugin declaration to your file
import android.os.Bundle;
import com.getcapacitor.BridgeActivity;
import com.getcapacitor.Plugin;
import io.sentry.capacitor.SentryCapacitor;
import java.util.ArrayList;

public class MainActivity extends BridgeActivity {
  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    // Initializes the Bridge
    this.init(savedInstanceState, new ArrayList<Class<? extends Plugin>>() {{


Configuration should happen as early as possible in your application's lifecycle.

Then forward the init method from the sibling Sentry SDK for the framework you use, such as Angular in this example:

import * as Sentry from "@sentry/capacitor";
// Use @sentry/angular-ivy for Angular 12+ or `@sentry/angular` from Angular 10 and 11
import * as SentryAngular from "@sentry/angular-ivy";

    dsn: "",

    // Set your release version, such as "getsentry@1.0.0"
    release: "my-project-name@<release-name>",
    // Set your dist version, such as "1"
    dist: "<dist>",
    integrations: [
      // Registers and configures the Tracing integration,
      // which automatically instruments your application to monitor its
      // performance, including custom Angular routing instrumentation
      new SentryAngular.BrowserTracing({
        tracePropagationTargets: ["localhost", ""],
        routingInstrumentation: SentryAngular.routingInstrumentation,
    // Set tracesSampleRate to 1.0 to capture 100%
    // of transactions for performance monitoring.
    // We recommend adjusting this value in production
    tracesSampleRate: 1.0,
  // Forward the init method from @sentry/angular

  providers: [
      provide: ErrorHandler,
      // Attach the Sentry ErrorHandler
      useValue: SentryAngular.createErrorHandler(),
      provide: SentryAngular.TraceService,
      deps: [Router],
      provide: APP_INITIALIZER,
      useFactory: () => () => {},
      deps: [SentryAngular.TraceService],
      multi: true,

You can also use the features available with the Sentry SDK for the framework you use, such as Angular.

Source Maps

You will need to upload source maps to make sense of the events you receive in Sentry.

For example, if you are using Capacitor with Ionic-Angular, upload your www folder on every build you release. The values for <release_name> and <dist> must match the values passed into Sentry.init for events to be deminified correctly.

sentry-cli releases files <release_name> upload-sourcemaps ./www --dist <dist>

Learn more about uploading source maps.

Provide Native Debug Information (iOS)

To make stack-trace information for native crashes on iOS easier to understand, you need to provide debug information to Sentry. Debug information is provided by uploading dSYM files.

Add Readable Stack Traces to Errors

Depending on how you've set up your JavaScript

, the stack traces in your Sentry errors probably don't look like your actual code.

To fix this, upload your source maps to Sentry. The easiest way to do this is to use the Sentry Wizard:

npx @sentry/wizard@latest -i sourcemaps

The wizard will guide you through the following steps:

  • Logging into Sentry and selecting a

  • Installing the necessary Sentry packages
  • Configuring your build tool to generate and upload source maps
  • Configuring your CI to upload source maps

For more information on source maps or for more options to upload them, head over to our Source Maps documentation.


This snippet includes an intentional error, so you can test that everything is working as soon as you set it up.

import * as Sentry from "@sentry/capacitor";

Sentry.captureException("Test Captured Exception");

You can also throw an error anywhere in your application:

throw new Error(`Test Thrown Error`);

To view and resolve the recorded error, log into and open your

. Clicking on the error's title will open a page where you can see detailed information and mark it as resolved.
