What is severity

What is severity?


Big Airbrake projects receive a lot of errors. Every new error triggers an email notification. Not every error is equally important, and a large amount of error emails can be overwhelming.

Severity allows you to control the importance of every single error your notifier sends. Consult your notifier’s README to learn how to control severity for your errors.

Airbrake supports the following severities (defaults to error):

  • debug
  • info
  • notice
  • warning
  • error
  • critical
  • alert
  • emergency

Errors with a severity of debug, info, notice, or warning will not trigger error emails or integration notifications.
