(New in version 0.6.0)

It is recommended to use an integration for your particular WSGI framework if available, as those are easier to use and capture more useful information.

If you use a WSGI framework not directly supported by the SDK, or wrote a raw WSGI app, you can use this generic WSGI middleware. It captures errors and attaches a basic amount of information for incoming requests.

import sentry_sdk
from sentry_sdk.integrations.wsgi import SentryWsgiMiddleware

from myapp import wsgi_app


wsgi_app = SentryWsgiMiddleware(wsgi_app)


  • Request data is attached to all events: HTTP method, URL, headers, form data, JSON payloads. Sentry excludes raw bodies and multipart file uploads. Sentry also excludes personally identifiable information (such as user ids, usernames, cookies, authorization headers, IP addresses) unless you set send_default_pii to True.

Each request has a separate scope. Changes to the scope within a view, for example setting a tag, will only apply to events sent as part of the request being handled.

  • The WSGI middleware does not behave like a regular integration. It is not initialized through an extra parameter to init and is not attached to a client. When capturing or supplementing events, it just uses the currently active hub.
