IRC Integration

This guide goes through the steps necessary to integrate Backtrace with IRC. With IRC integration, Backtrace can send an alert message for new crashes or crash groups to a specified channel on an IRC server. This message will contain a URL to view more detailed information about the crash in the Web Console.


To set up the integration, first go to the Configuration page within the Web Console:


Next, select the project you want to add a integration for:

Select Project

Then click Integrations in the left-hand menu, then Create a New Integration on the right, and pick the integration:

Create Integration

These are the settings that you can configure for your IRC integration:

Setting Required? Description
Server Yes IRC Server Hostname
IRC Nickname Yes Nickname that the integration uses to post messages
Username Yes IRC Username
Real Name Yes "Real name" to associate with IRC user
Channel Yes IRC channel which will receive the messages
Port No IRC port. Defaults to 6667


Next: After filling in the integration-specific settings, proceed to Common Settings to finish configuring the integration.
