Expand description

This crate provides common types for working with the Sentry protocol or the Sentry server. It’s used by the Sentry Relay infrastructure as well as the rust Sentry client.

Most of the types in this crate are serializable in one form or another. The types in the protocol module are generally really only serializable to JSON as other formats are not supported by Sentry at this date.


The crate provides a bunch of common types for working with Sentry as such (DSN, ProjectIDs, authentication headers) as well as types for the Sentry event protocol.

Right now only v7 of the protocol is implemented but it’s versioned so later versions might be added later.

API Concepts

Most types are directly serializable or deserializable and try to implement the Default type. This means that objects can be created conviently and missing attributes can be filled in:

use sentry_types::protocol::v7;

let event = v7::Event {
    message: Some("Hello World!".to_string()),
    culprit: Some("foo in bar".to_string()),
    level: v7::Level::Info,


This module exposes the types for the Sentry protocol in different versions.


Represents an auth header.

Wrapper around DebugId for Breakpad formatting.

Unique platform-dependent identifier of code files.

Unique identifier for debug information files and their debug information.

Represents a Sentry dsn.

Indicates an error parsing a CodeId.

Indicates an error parsing a DebugId.

Represents a project ID.

A Universally Unique Identifier (UUID).


Represents an auth header parsing error.

Represents a dsn url parsing error.

Raised if a project ID cannot be parsed from a string.

Represents the scheme of an url http/https.

The reserved variants of UUIDs.

The version of the UUID, denoting the generating algorithm.
