Notifications

You can opt into email or mobile push notifications of errors. Stackdriver Error Reporting sends a notification in these cases:

  • When an error first occurs in a project and it cannot be grouped with previous errors.

  • If an error that was marked as Resolved reoccurs.

Limits

If more than 5 errors reoccur in a project within an hour, Error Reporting sends a final notification, letting you know that no more notifications will be sent for the next 6 hours. This is to control the volume of notifications.

Resolution status

If an error with a resolution status of Resolved reoccurs, even if it has been previously deleted, its resolution status changes back to Open and Error Reporting sends a notification.

Error Reporting won't send a notification if a Muted error reoccurs.

To manage the resolution status of your errors, go to Managing errors.

Mobile notifications

Mobile notifications are sent to the GCP Console app on Android and iOS. To opt into mobile notifications, you must first install the app on your mobile device:

Download the Cloud Console mobile app

Email notifications

Email notifications are sent to the email address associated with your Google account. It is not possible to configure a custom email alias (for instance, a team email alias).

You can forward notification emails to an email alias or to a Slack channel by using Gmail's forward feature and the following filter:

from:(StackdriverNotifications-noreply@google.com) subject:("New Error")
