  1. add a comment or notes field to the errors

    It would be handy, to help keep track of the errors and our progress on tracking them down, to have a notes or comments type field we could edit and add to that is associated with a particular error.

  2. allow to trigger an error manually (with custom data for debugging)

    this way I could send an error under special circumstances and include custom data, like a stack trace. This would also help to work around the issue mentioned here: http://errorception.uservoice.com/forums/132896-suggestions-and-feedback/suggestions/2387893-send-a-stack-trace-with-the-error

  4. Webhooks

    Notify a specific URL when new errors are posted to Errorception.

    That way I can send the errors to my Campfire chatroom.

    Here you go! http://blog.errorception.com/2013/04/announcing-webhooks.html Cheers!

    Really curious to know what you’d build with this. I would love to help!

    If you are going to build integrations with either popular services (like Campfire) or with open-source projects, please get in touch with me first. We could work together on this, and I’ll even host the integration for you so that (a) it’s one less thing for you to worry about and (b) I can re-use the integration for other projects on Errorception.

    Get in touch with me at rakeshpai@errorception.com as usual.

  5. Allow additional context info when logging an exception

    Exceptional allows you to post additional context info when logging an exception. For example, you could include the user id or some other parameter that's unique to the exception.

    Right now I'm try to debug a script that unexpectedly has an undefined variable, but it only happens in our production environment. I'd like to be able to log some state information along with the exception.

  6. Allow users to annotate errors for easier collaboration between devs

    When working with a group of devs (or even one dev dealing with a lot of errors), it would be useful to be able to annotate specific errors--something as simple as a comments box would do, probably. It would be nice to have a place where we could capture information such as what Jira ticket a certain error corresponds to, or whether somebody has started working on resolving the error's cause already.

  7. Add custom meta data to errors. (env=development|staging|production)

    I'd love a way to send custom meta data along with the error by adding it to the tracking snippet. In my case, I would need to know which environment the error is happening in. (development, staging, or production)

  8. Reset button

    Add a button (or some similar mechanism) to clear all errors. This way after a deploy, you can easily see which errors are still occurring.

    Implemented a date-based filtering mechanism. Lets you do time-based slicing of the errors. Could make UI improvements, but the feature is otherwise complete. Feedback welcome.

  9. Support gzipped JavaScript in inline viewer

    Some CDNs (e.g. CloudFront) do not support delivering JavaScript based on the Accept header, and thus always deliver gzipped content if that is what has been put there.

  11. Support Javascript Source Maps

    It would be very helpful if errorception supported the use of source maps for minified and concatenated js. Is this feature planned anytime soon?

  12. Log IP addresses along with errors / Geolocation of an error

    I am currently debugging an issue that, from the language the error is being thrown in, appears to primarily be affecting Chinese users. I have no way to verify this, however, because the IP addresses themselves aren't logged. It would be nice to be able to get a log of IP addresses, or at least geolocation of the error, so you could see if an error was specific to certain geographic areas. For example, I suspect that this issue has something to do with an interaction between our CDN and China's firewall, but it would be good to know if…

  13. Give access to raw data

    Sometimes it's nice to have the nitty gritty details; how about allowing an export of raw data with some limited (date-based, browser-based) filtering capabilities? Sometimes the aggregated view is not enough to aid in troubleshooting.

    Having this capability would save you from having to build countless views of the data in the ui for atypical situations.

  14. collapse identical errors reported in different spoken languages (French vs English) into a single error

    I have French and English users, primarily. the same error in these different languages is reported as two different errors.

  15. Add ability to filter at the tracking snippet level

    While the new ability to filter certain error strings from the web UI is really nice, it appears that silenced errors still count against your quota. For lower quotas, one person with an aggressive (and incorrect) browser plugin can empty your daily quote in minutes!

    I noticed in the implementation of the tracking snippet that you're filtering out certain strings explicitly, such as:

    jid1\-ejhbjdxm9zr4tq
    originalCreateNotification
    Error loading script (in Firefox)

    ...would it be possible to augment the _errs.meta hash so that it could take in an optional list of strings to filter on? In this way, users could build their…

  16. Allow sub users of a parent account.

    We have many developers at company and would rather not give out our main account login to everyone.

  17. Ignore specific errors

    I have a Chrome error "Uncaught Error: Attempting to use a disconnected port object" filling up 80% of my daily quota.

    It seems to come from a 3-rd party extention. Is it possible to ignore it, so I don't have to pay for it?

    It would be really nice to be able to filter errors by the URLs they have occurred on.

  19. Detail drill down for Errors that happen on multiple pages

    It's not terribly useful to have 1 line number for 10 pages that an error happens on.

    It would also be useful to be able to see on which pages, which browser the error was on.

    timestamps on the error per page would be nice to, to see if there is corresponding errors on the server side logging.

  20. Hide unnecessary errors

    Some errors are with Google Analytics, mixpanel, etc, which are third-party scripts I can't do anything about. I should be able to hide them so my list of errors is clean.
