When you catch a bug or an error, one of the last things you want to do is waste time popping into another application or copying over the details in order to report it. We get it! That's why we built a new integration with Sentry’s open-source error monitoring tool, so you can fix and manage errors more quickly.
With the new integration, you’ll have the same functionality as the existing plug-in, like the ability to link crash reports and create new Shortcut Stories but with added automation and less context switching.
With the integration, changes made to a linked Shortcut Story will also automatically populate in the linked Sentry Issue. Say for example, your team fixes a Bug Story in Shortcut with a couple of linked Sentry Issues and moves it to complete. Now you'll see both linked Sentry Issues automatically resolve without any additional effort in Sentry - pretty neat!
Now you can create a Shortcut Story from a Sentry Issue in fewer steps. Say you see a new Issue come in and want to create a Story for the work needed to address the bug. Simply head to the linked issues section in Sentry, add a title and a description, and you're done! The new functionality of the integration also allows you to configure defaults for a Shortcut Project and requester for each Sentry Project, minimizing the copy and clicks needed to create a new Story.
Save time when you see individual but related issues come into Sentry by connecting any related issues to the relevant Shortcut Story. When you move the linked Shortcut Story to a complete state, all linked Sentry Issues get resolved without having to go into each individual issue!
Connecting the two systems is much faster now that it no longer requires using the Shortcut API token. Have your admin connect Sentry through the Settings in Shortcut and both systems will be connected in few easy clicks. You’ll also notice that with the new integration, you’ll be able to choose a Shortcut Project and requester of the created Story to help save time when creating a Story from an Issue.
