How many times have you been aware of an error or performance issue, but lacked the ability to quickly uncover the root cause and determine why it happened in the first place? One of the most powerful ways to do this is by surfacing code-level insights right where you need them, alongside the context needed to take action. By using our latest integration with Azure Repos, you’ll be able to get to the ‘why’ of issues, faster – all directly within Raygun.

Raygun is known for quickly getting you to the issues impacting your users. This release will give you even more flexibility by connecting to your source code directly in Crash Reporting, APM, and Deployments.

This new functionality expands on our current range of first-class source control integrations, including GitHub, Bitbucket, and GitLab, all carefully designed with the vision of providing greater visibility into the issues impacting your end-user experience.

Solve customer-facing issues, faster

Every second counts when you have issues impacting your end-users. The sooner that you are made aware of an issue, the faster a fix can be deployed. Having a seamless issue resolution workflow that minimizes the time issues are in the hands of your users is essential for consistently delivering quality digital experiences. By getting code-level insights directly within Raygun, you can align an error or trace with contextual understanding about the code path that was being executed at the time to get to the bottom of customer issues faster.

Empower your development team with integrated deployment tracking so they can own and monitor their code through to production and innovate faster without introducing unnecessary risk. Track errors and performance trends in real-time, instantly spot problematic deployments and drill into the source code to swiftly resolve any issues.

Integrations for a Modern DevOps workflow

The Azure Repos integration works seamlessly alongside our existing Azure DevOps integrations.

Azure Pipelines

Build, test, and deploy with CI/CD that works with any language, platform, and cloud. Connect to GitHub or any other Git provider (such as the Azure DevOps Git provider), and deploy continuously. See what errors occurred/re-occurred in the latest deployment, so you can Instantly know when something goes wrong and see exactly how to fix it.

Azure Boards

Deliver value to your users faster using proven agile tools to plan, track, and discuss work across your teams. The Azure Boards integration with Raygun allows you to create a new work item directly from a crash report, or to link a crash report to an existing work item (with a link directly to the exact error group in Raygun).
