Sentry Integration

If you’re using Sentry for crash reporting, it will work out-of-the-box with Shorebird releases and patches. However, if you have multiple patches, it can be unclear which patch caused the crash. This document shows how you can use Sentry tags to differentiate between patches.

Add the shorebird_code_push package to your project.

shorebird_code_push is available on and lets you programmatically determine your app’s current patch number. To add it to your project, follow the instructions on the package’s page.

Configure Sentry

If you haven’t already, follow the Sentry getting started with Flutter guide.

Update the Sentry init code to include the patch number as a tag. This will look something like:

Future<void> main() async {
// Get the current patch number. This will be null if no patch is installed.
final patchNumber = await ShorebirdCodePush().currentPatchNumber();
await SentryFlutter.init(
(options) {
options.dsn = 'YOUR_DSN';
appRunner: () {
// Add the patch number as a tag. You can use whatever name you would like
// as the key. `$patchNumber` will be "null" if there is no patch. You may
// wish to handle this case differently.
Sentry.configureScope((scope) {
scope.setTag('shorebird_patch_number', '$patchNumber');
return runApp(const MyApp());
