Exceptionless 2.0 User Interface FIRST LOOK

We can prove it! Exceptionless 2.0 is real, and we’ve got evidence!

We’ve been wanting to give everyone a sneak peak for a long time, and today we are excited to finally be able to. Watch the video above to see a high level overview of the new UI and features.

There are still quite a few small things to take care of before we release it, but we are happy to say that we are around the 85% mark as far as being finished. Once we get closer, we will be putting up a live demo/preview site for everyone to play with and give feedback on.

Please don’t hesitate to give us any feedback you may have after watching the video or reading the transcript below. We want to hear it!

Coming in Exceptionless 2.0 – A Pluggable System

Pluggable System

In the last Exceptionless 2.0 article, we announced the upcoming simplified API. Today, we want to introduce another major piece of V2.0 – the pluggable system.

Plugins will allow customization and translation throughout the Exceptionless platform, including integration with third-party services and more. Read on for more details about pluggable details such as event parsing, event pipeline, and formatting. (more…)

Event Based Reporting System Coming in Version 2.0

Event Based Reporting SystemWe hinted that more details on the upcoming Exceptionless 2.0 release would get announced soon, and here we are! Lets dive in a bit further, shall we?

Many users have asked for ways to use Exceptionless to report additional types of events, rather than just errors. With version 2.0, we are moving to an event based system that will accommodate such requests. (more…)

Exception Handling & Logging Tool for ASP.NET, Web API, WebForms, WPF, Console, MVC, and more

Visual .NET Exception GraphHaving a handle on your code’s errors is important. Thousands, if not millions, of exceptions are thrown every day in production code without anyone knowing. These errors might be affecting the bottom line, or they could be negligible – either way, it’s important to know that they exist, how often they are occurring, and what parts of the app are affected.

Are you looking for a comprehensive tool that handles logging, reporting, grouping, and notifications for exceptions in your ASP.NET, Web API, WebForms, WPF, Console, MVC, or NancyFX app? Exceptionless does all that, and more. Lets take a look. (more…)

Intelligent App Error Grouping Helps Organize Your Exceptions

Exception Grouping TotalsHaving a tool like Exceptionless to report and log your software’s errors is great, but many of our clients experience thousands of instances of each error over various lengths of time, which can become overwhelming quickly.

We couldn’t just leave them with a huge list of individual error occurrences to drudge through, so we went through several different potential options until we devised the best way to group them. (more…)

Detailed Error Reports – What’s Included?

When an error occurs in your app, you need to know the critical details, fast, so you can drill down and fix it. We get it – we’re developers too – that’s why we built Exceptionless.

The trick was organizing the data so it didn’t overwhelm our users, while still providing all the important stuff so developers wouldn’t have to spend extra time tracking down versions, requesting stack traces, or pulling teeth to get environment information.

Lets take a look at the default information included with every error. We say default because you can easily add your own information with custom objects. (more…)

Achievement Unlocked – 1000 Accounts and Over 8,000,000 Errors Reported!

8 million errors reportedJust over six months ago, we launched Exceptionless with a mission to impact the coding community in a positive way. The goal was, and still is, to help developers find, track, and squash errors, ultimately creating better code for users.

A few days ago we officially hit 1000 accounts, and as of today Exceptionless has reported 8,562,499 errors! We couldn’t be more excited! (more…)

Fork Us! Exceptionless Goes Open Source

OctocatIt’s a big day at Exceptionless.

We are super excited to announce that we are open sourcing the Exceptionless code! That’s right, now you can hack on our real-time error reporting tool yourself.

Too many apps are throwing too many errors out there, resulting in confused users, lost business, and endless frustration.

We believe Exceptionless can help the development community become more in-tune with their code by making those errors more transparent, trackable, and squashable. More importantly, we want to support developers building and shipping better code for their users.

XML Parsing Exception Caught and Fixed – Case Study

This is yet another story of an elusive bug that, without a proper error reporting service, would have gone un-noticed for a very long time.

When third-party software and services interact with your code, in any way, you have to be wary that their data may be different from yours. In this instance, our client was parsing some XML that included an unfriendly cookie name. Lets see what happened next… (more…)

Receive Error Notifications from Your App via Email

Maybe you’ve got this awesome new web app that you’re ready to go live with, or maybe you’re working on a project that is already customer facing but you’ve got major new features rolling out and want to make sure all goes well.

We both know there’s going to be something that isn’t completely right after launch. It might be a big bug stopping certain users from placing orders on your site, or it might be something that won’t even affect your customers. It might be highly visible, or completely hidden from your view. Either way, you want to know when that error occurs and what the details are. That’s where Exceptionless comes in. (more…)
