Errorception Destination

On this page

Getting Started

When you enable Errorception in Segment, this is what happens:

  • The Segment CDN updates within 45 minutes. The Segment snippet starts asynchronously loading Errorception’s beacon.js library on to your page. This means you should remove the original Errorception’s snippet from your page.
  • Your Errorception dashboard starts showing any javascript errors that occur on your site.

Errorception is only supported on the client-side.


This is only active if you set the meta setting to be true. When you call identify we set Errorception’s _errs.meta to be the traits you passed in.

Supported Sources and Connection Modes

The first step is to make sure Errorception supports the source type and connection mode you’ve chosen to implement. You can learn more about what dictates the connection modes we support here.

To learn more about about Connection Modes and what dictates which we support, see here.


Segment lets you change these destination settings from your Segment dashboard without having to touch any code.

Include custom user data with Errorception’s error tracking

When this option is enabled we will store metadata about the user on identify calls, using the Errorception meta API.

Project ID

You can find your Project ID under the Settings tab on the Project page of your Errorception account. Your Project ID is the long hexadecimal number inside _errs['PROJECT_ID']. You can also just copy it out of your Errorception URL, /projects/PROJECT_ID. It should be 24 characters long and look something like this: 326b76b52f52c3f662000140.
