A list of all plans available can be found here.

$ heroku addons:create errorapp

Once ErrorApp has been added a ERRORAPP_API_KEY setting will be available in the app configuration and will contain the api_key. This can be confirmed using the heroku config:get command.

$ heroku config:get ERRORAPP_API_KEY

After installing ErrorApp the application should be configured to fully integrate with the add-on.

You can confirm the new config by running heroku config:get command. This command will show you ERRORAPP_API_KEY.


Include ErrorApp Notifier in your application

After adding the ErrorApp add-on, you will need to install and configure ErrorApp Notifier.

Using with Rails 3.x

Ruby on Rails applications will need to add the following entry into their Gemfile specifying the ErrorApp client library.

gem 'errorapp_notifier'

Update application dependencies with bundler.

$ bundle install
$ bundle exec rails generate errorapp_notifier --api-key `heroku config:get ERRORAPP_API_KEY`


If your exceptions are not being tracked on ErrorApp. You can troubleshoot this by checking your project API key.

Check your project API key with ErrorApp account by navigating from your heroku app add-on menu.

You can get your current configured API key in heroku by running following command.

$ heroku config:get ERRORAPP_API_KEY

If this key does not match with project key in ErrorApp, then you need to set that key in your heroku config.

$ heroku config:set ERRORAPP_API_KEY=b7c54eaf-d64e-4a0b-9b41-dafada8e3502
