AWS Lambda

Before you begin, note:

  • The estimated time to configure the integration is 5 - 15 minutes.
  • You need to have experience with AWS console and a basic understanding of Lambda.
  • You'll need an AWS account and you have to create an IAM user.

(New in version 5.26.0)

Create a deployment package on your local machine and install the required dependencies in the deployment package. For more information, see Building an AWS Lambda deployment package for Node.js.

Add @sentry/serverless as a dependency:

npm install --save @sentry/serverless

We also support installing Sentry as a Container Image and installing Sentry in Lambda Layer.

You can use the AWS Lambda integration for the Node like this:

const Sentry = require("@sentry/serverless");

  dsn: "",

  // We recommend adjusting this value in production, or using tracesSampler
  // for finer control
  tracesSampleRate: 1.0,

exports.handler = Sentry.AWSLambda.wrapHandler(async (event, context) => {
  // Your handler code

Sentry reports timeout warning when the function is within 500ms of its execution time. You can turn off timeout warnings by setting captureTimeoutWarning to false in the handler options. To change timeout warning limit, assign a numeric value (in ms) to timeoutWarningLimit

exports.handler = Sentry.AWSLambda.wrapHandler(yourHandler, {
  captureTimeoutWarning: false,

(New in version 6.14.3)

By default, Sentry captures errors raised by your handler. However, your handler might return a Promise.allSettled result. In this case, even if one of the messages has failed, Sentry won't capture any exception.

The captureAllSettledReasons (default: false) option captures all promise rejected results

exports.handler = Sentry.AWSLambda.wrapHandler(
  () => {
    return Promise.allSettled([
      Promise.rejected(new Error("first")),
      Promise.rejected(new Error("second")),
  { captureAllSettledReasons: true }
// `first` and `second` errors are captured

With the AWS Lambda integration enabled, the Node SDK will:

  • Automatically report all events from your Lambda Functions.
  • Allows you to modify the transaction sample rate using tracesSampleRate.
  • Issue reports automatically include:
    • A link to the cloudwatch logs
    • Function details
    • sys.argv for the function
    • AWS Request ID
    • Function execution time
    • Function version
  • Sentry holds the thread for up to 2 seconds to report errors. You can change flush time limit by defining a flushTimeout value in the handler options
