  1. Navigate to the Salesforce Apex installation page(s).

    [Rollbar for Salesforce Apex package installation V2.6 - Latest]

    [Rollbar for Salesforce Apex package installation V2.5]

    [Rollbar for Salesforce Apex package installation V2.4]

  2. Select the group of users you want to install Rollbar for Apex for. We recommend selecting Install for All Users.

  3. Click Install.

  4. Wait until the package downloads into your organization. You will see the message Installing and granting access to all Users... with a loader. Wait several seconds. (Note: Sometimes Salesforce won't proceed directly to the next step, and will send a status email instead. In that case, to continue setup navigate to Installed Packages -> Rollbar -> Post Install Instructions -> View and continue with the next steps.)

  1. Click Continue Install and Setup Forwarding when prompted. Wait for the Rollbar package components to be configured.
  1. Save and Verify the Rollbar Token

    i. When the component configuration is finished you will be presented with the package's configuration page.

    ii. Provide your Rollbar project's post_server_item access token.

    a. If you are creating a new project:
        a. You can select *Apex* under *Backend* in Rollbar project creation flow as the framework of your choice.
        b. The project onboarding instructions will include your project access token while your project displays the Rollbar's *Waiting for data...* page.
    b. If you already have an existing project:
        a. Go to _Settings_ in your Rollbar account.
        b. Click the name of the project you want to connect with your organization.
        c. Navigate to _Project Access Tokens_ (it should be default section).
        d. Copy the `post_server_item` access token.
        e. Paste the copied access token in the text input in the package's installer.

    iii. Click Save and Verify.

iv. The SDK will send a welcome message to your Rollbar project right away. You should be able to find it in your items view in Rollbar.
  1. Configure Rollbar for Apex/Salesforce
    The configuration page provides access to these settings:

Report uncaught exceptions that occur in Apex code. When this setting is enabled, uncaught exceptions will be reported automatically. No other code is required.

Report errors in Flow and Process execution. When this setting is enabled, all Flow/Process errors will be reported automatically. Note: this feature also requires setting Setup/Process Automation Settings/Send Process or Flow Error Email to Apex Exception Email Recipients.

The email handler may also receive email types besides Exception and Flow/Process emails. This option allows sending these to Rollbar as generic messages.

This enables/disables sending occurrences to Rollbar, allowing sending to be fully disabled without needing to uninstall the package.

Capture User ID
Include the current user's ID with Rollbar reports.

Capture Username
Include the current user's username with Rollbar reports.

Capture User Email
Include the current user's email address with Rollbar reports.

Allows setting the environment string sent to Rollbar with each report. This setting is global, and works for all occurrences including uncaught exceptions and Flow/Process errors.

  1. You can now use Rollbar for Apex in your organization.


Uncaught exceptions and Flow/Process errors

Rollbar requires no additional code to handle uncaught errors once the above configuration is complete.

Sending arbitrary messages

As a managed package, all calls to Rollbar should be prefixed with the rollbar namespace.

Sending a message to Rollbar is as simple as:

rollbar.Rollbar.log('info', 'Hello World');

Sending exceptions

try {
    // some code here raises exception
} catch (Exception exc) {

You can copy and paste the above Apex code either to your Developer Console and execute it anonymously (Developer ConsoleDebugOpen Execute Anonymous Window).

Or just start using Rollbar in your Apex classes.


If you need to change the access token or other configuration of your Rollbar project to which your organization is connected, navigate to Installed Packages -> Rollbar -> Post Install Instructions -> View.

You can also go back to the Rollbar for Apex installer VisualForce page: RollbarConfigure.
