Issue Management

Issue tracking allows you to create Linear issues from within Sentry, and link Sentry issues to existing Linear issues. Issue management can be configured in two ways — automatically or manually.


To configure issue management automatically, create an issue alert or a metric alert. When selecting the action, choose "Notify Integration" and then "Linear" for issue alerts, or select "Linear" from the action dropdown for metric alerts:

Create Linear issue as metric alert rule action

A Linear issue will be created automatically when the alert is triggered.


To configure issue management manually, navigate to a specific Sentry issue and find the "Linked Issues" section on the right panel:

Link Linear issue from Sentry issue

Here, you’ll be able to create or link Linear issues.
