This plugin will push exceptions to Rollbar.

$ npm install -S @goodwaygroup/lib-hapi-rollbar

In your index.js for the Hapi server, register the plugin:

// Rollbar
if (process.env.ROLLBAR_TOKEN && ['production', 'staging'].indexOf(process.env.NODE_ENV) > -1) {
    await server.register({
        plugin: require('@goodwaygroup/lib-hapi-rollbar'), // eslint-disable-line global-require
        options: {
            accessToken: process.env.ROLLBAR_TOKEN,
            captureEmail: true,
            captureUncaught: true,
            captureUnhandledRejections: true,
            omittedResponseCodes: [400, 401, 404, 409],
            codeVersion: require('../package.json').version // eslint-disable-line global-require
} else {
    // passthru helper method to clean up code when rollbar is not configured
    server.decorate('request', 'sendRollbarMessage', () => {});

Configuration Options

When passing a configuration option, it will overwrite the defaults.

You can pass in any configuration option for the Rollbar library.

Custom options:

  • omittedResponseCodes: An ARRAY of HTTP codes (as integers) to not report to Rollbar.
    • Defaults to [], but we recommend [400, 401, 404, 409] to avoid spam exceptions.

Person Tracking

The plugin uses the standard Person Tracking features. To ensure you are passing the correct info to Rollbar, place the data you want to track in the request.auth.credentials object. This will be copied to request.rollbar_person when pushing the exception to Rollbar.

Send Custom Message

You can send custom messages to Rollbar via the request.sendRollbarMessage decorator. It will default to the error level. You use any Rollbar supported level:


Example call:

    level: 'warning', // defaults to 'error'
    message: 'Custom Message',
    payload: { custom: { payload: 'data' } }

Send Custom object

Rollbar allows a custom object to be passed through and sent in the payload delivered to a Rollbar occurence (see here). In lib-hapi-rollbar, we couple this to Boom such that any data passed in as an argument to a Boom error will be delivered through to Rollbar. For example, Boom.badImplementation('message', data) will result in the contents of data landing as part of the Rollbar occurence report.
