Browser JS

How to configure Rollbar.js to work in the browser

Quick Start

Copy-paste the following code into the <head> of every page you want to monitor. It should be as high as possible, before any other <script> tags.

Be sure to replace POST_CLIENT_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN with your project's post_client_item access token, which you can find in the Rollbar.com interface. You can find this by going to your project's Settings > Project Access Tokens.

<script>
var _rollbarConfig = {
    accessToken: "POST_CLIENT_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN",
    captureUncaught: true,
    captureUnhandledRejections: true,
    payload: {
        environment: "production"
    }
};

</script>

If you're running Rollbar on an environment besides production, change the environment value to something else (e.g. staging). See more configuration options here.

Test your installation

  1. Navigate your browser to a page that has the above code installed
  2. Type the following code into the console and press enter: window.onerror("TestRollbarError: testing window.onerror", window.location.href)

If you're on Firefox, window.onerror is not accessible from the console, so you'll need to try this in your code instead: setTimeout(function() {notThere();}, 1000);.

This simulates an uncaught error. It should appear in your project's dashboard within a few seconds.
