We know it’s inevitable that when you create a new feature or version, there will be bugs.
With Raygun Crash Reporting, as a user you’ll know that when an error gets picked up it’s automatically sent into the ‘Active’ tab.
Firstly, the Raygun Dashboard gives a complete overview of what’s happening in your app. The errors can then be moved to being ‘resolved’ or ‘permanently ignored’ as you see fit.
However, what about if you are consistently releasing features? In this case, bugs are inevitable, and aren’t necessarily high alert.
To stop these errors being counted against your quota, Raygun has introduced our latest feature:
You can now create criteria to ignore errors coming from a specific IP address, machine name, or created by a specific version. To make things simple, we’ve also included a quick list of the most requested filters that you can simply toggle on and off as needed.
