The official command-line tool to interact with Airbrake.
brew install airbrake/airbrake-cli/airbrake
login command requires username and password and does not support two-factor authentication. For alternative authentication methods (eg: in cases where GitHub logins, SSO, or two-factor authentication are used), please use the
config command or global flags.
Log in with the Airbrake CLI by issuing the following command:
login command will prompt you for your email, password, and an optional subdomain (account subdomains are used to differentiate if you have multiple Airbrake accounts using the same email address).
Enter your email: email@example.com Enter your password: Enter your subdomain (optional): Done! The Airbrake CLI is configured for firstname.lastname@example.org
login command will generate a file in
$HOME/.airbrake.yaml with contents like:
project-key: "" user-key: "" user-token: YOUR_USER_TOKEN
If your account requires GitHub or SSO logins, or you have you two-factor authentication enabled, you cannot authenticate with the
login command. To authenticate in this situation, you can set credentials using the
airbrake config set command. To set your user key (which can be retreived from your profile settings page) with the
config set command, invoke:
airbrake config set user-key YOUR_USER_KEY_HERE
To check the values the Airbrake CLI is using, invoke:
airbrake config show
Alternative to the
config commands, you may specify the
--user-key flag to the Airbrake CLI. The following are global flags for the
Flags: --config string config file (default is $HOME/.airbrake.yaml) --project-key string Project key used to access the API --user-key string User key used to access the API
# Use the --project-id flag if you already have an Airbrake project in # your account you want to use airbrake install --project-id 12345 # Or have the install command create a new Airbrake project: airbrake install --create-project=DESIRED_PROJECT_NAME
Projects list command
This short example will show you how to send a test error notice to an Airbrake project with some basic commands.
Before we send the test error notice, we need to get the
id of the project we want to send the notice to. To do this, invoke:
airbrake projects list
We’ll be using the
id field from the
project list output in the next command.
Notices create command
Quickly create an error notice using the
notices create command. Use the project ID you found when you listed your projects above.
airbrake notices create --project-id YOUR_PROJECT_ID \ --type "Sample Error" \ --message "My first error from the CLI"
This will send an error notice to the project you specified and provide you a direct link.
