Self-Hosted Sentry nightly

    Official bootstrap for running your own Sentry with Docker.


    • Docker 19.03.6+
    • Compose 1.28.0+
    • 4 CPU Cores
    • 8 GB RAM
    • 20 GB Free Disk Space



    To get started with all the defaults, simply clone the repo and run ./ in your local check-out. Sentry uses Python 3 by default since December 4th, 2020 and Sentry 21.1.0 is the last version to support Python 2.

    During the install, a prompt will ask if you want to create a user account. If you require that the install not be blocked by the prompt, run ./ --skip-user-prompt.

    Customize DotEnv (.env) file

    Environment specific configurations can be done in the .env.custom file. It will be located in the root directory of the Sentry installation, and if it exists then .env will be ignored entirely.

    By default, there exists no .env.custom file. In this case, you can manually add this file by copying the .env file to a new .env.custom file and adjust your settings in the .env.custom file.

    Please keep in mind to check the .env file for changes, when you perform an upgrade of Sentry, so that you can adjust your .env.custom accordingly, if required, as .env is ignored entirely if .env.custom is present.

    Enhance Sentry image

    To install plugins and their dependencies or make other modifications to the Sentry base image, copy sentry/ to sentry/ and add necessary steps there. For example, you can use apt-get to install dependencies and use pip to install plugins.

    After making modifications to sentry/, run ./ again to apply them.

    Tips & Tricks

    Event Retention

    Sentry comes with a cleanup cron job that prunes events older than 90 days by default. If you want to change that, you can change the SENTRY_EVENT_RETENTION_DAYS environment variable in .env or simply override it in your environment. If you do not want the cleanup cron, you can remove the sentry-cleanup service from the docker-compose.ymlfile.

    Installing a specific SHA

    If you want to install a specific release of Sentry, use the tags/releases on this repo.

    We continuously push the Docker image for each commit made into Sentry, and other services such as Snuba or Symbolicator to our Docker Hub and tag the latest version on master as :nightly. This is also usually what we have on and what the install script uses. You can use a custom Sentry image, such as a modified version that you have built on your own, or simply a specific commit hash by setting the SENTRY_IMAGE environment variable to that image name before running ./

    SENTRY_IMAGE=getsentry/sentry:83b1380 ./

    Note that this may not work for all commit SHAs as this repository evolves with Sentry and its satellite projects. It is highly recommended to check out a version of this repository that is close to the timestamp of the Sentry commit you are installing.

    Using Linux

    If you are using Linux and you need to use sudo when running ./, make sure to place the environment variable after sudo:

    sudo ./

    Where you replace 83b1380 with the sha you want to use.
