Airbrake + ProjectManager.com, a Zapier Integration

ProjectManager.com is an online project management platform for all levels of users. The software allows for users to create project and track progress down to the tiniest details. PM allows for multiuser collaboration and file hosting natively within the software. ProjectManager.com gives everyone from business managers to hardcore project managers the tools they need.

Airbrake and ProjectManager.com have integrated through Zapier to make the life on you and your developers easier. Airbrake gives your team robust exception tracking in your software projects, allowing you to quickly react to errors.  By targeting the exact piece of code, Airbrake helps your team find causes, efficiently getting you from bug to solution.

You can generate tasks directly in ProjectManager.com whenever an error is found by Airbrake. This allows for users to not only track the bug in Airbrake, but address it as a team in ProjectManager.com.

If you’d like to give this integration a try, follow the steps below.

What you’ll need:

  • A Zapier account (If you don’t have a Zapier account don’t worry, there is a free version)
  • An Airbrake account (you’ll also need your API key, if you don’t know how to find it, this step by step will explain how to)
  • A ProjectManager.com account (you’ll also need your API key)

  7. Match up the platforms! Select the settings that best suit your needs.
