Integrate Sentry with Vercel for Effective Error Monitoring

Integrating Sentry with Vercel allows you to monitor errors and improve the performance of your application. In this tutorial, we will walk you through 5 easy steps to integrate Sentry with Vercel for efficient error monitoring.


Before we begin, ensure you have the following:

  1. A Sentry account: Sign up for a free account at
  2. A Vercel account: Sign up for a free account at
  3. A project hosted on Vercel to integrate with Sentry.

Step 1: Install Sentry SDK

First, install the Sentry SDK for your project. Depending on your programming language or framework, the installation process may vary. For example, if your project uses React:

npm install --save @sentry/react @sentry/tracing

Or if your project uses Node.js:

npm install --save @sentry/node

Refer to the official Sentry documentation for installation instructions specific to your platform.

Step 2: Configure Sentry

Next, configure Sentry in your application. Create a sentry.config.js file in your project's root and add the following code, replacing <YOUR_DSN> with your Sentry DSN:

import * as Sentry from "@sentry/react";
import { Integrations } from "@sentry/tracing";

  dsn: "<YOUR_DSN>",
  integrations: [new Integrations.BrowserTracing()],
  tracesSampleRate: 1.0,

For Node.js projects, replace @sentry/react with @sentry/node.

Step 3: Add Environment Variables

Add your Sentry DSN as an environment variable in your Vercel project. Go to your Vercel project's dashboard, navigate to the "Settings" tab, and click "Environment Variables". Add a new variable named SENTRY_DSN and set its value to your Sentry DSN.

Step 4: Install Vercel CLI

Install the Vercel CLI by running the following command:

npm install -g vercel

Log in to your Vercel account:

vercel login

Step 5: Deploy Your Project

Finally, deploy your project with the Vercel CLI:

vercel --prod

This command deploys your project and automatically integrates Sentry with Vercel.


You have now successfully integrated Sentry with Vercel for efficient error monitoring. This integration will allow you to track errors, improve the performance of your application, and provide a better user experience.
