Rollbar Integration Guide

Rollbar is an error notification and analysis service with a wide sweep, covering Ruby, Python, PHP, JavaScript, and Flash. Common platforms such as Django and Node.js are also supported, though any service that responds to HTTP and JSON requests can be configured to work with it. The service collects errors and reports them to Rollbar, where they are collected and displayed in your Dashboard. By integrating Rollbar with PagerDuty, you can alert your team in a timely manner and fix problems before they become emergencies. If you have any questions or require assistance with this configuration, please contact our support team at support@pagerduty.com.
