Error signatures are unique strings that Noibu uses to identify errors on eCommerce webpages. Ideally, each error signature should correspond to a unique problem and be resolved by a single fix, like a code change, configuration change, or infrastructure update.
HTTP Error Signatures
Our HTTP error signatures follow the format: <Error code> - <parsed URL on which the error occurred>
Our algorithm follows several rules when parsing URLs to avoid creating too many unique errors from the same root cause. For instance, if the same issue occurs on multiple pages, we don't want to log a unique error on each product page. Our methods for parsing URLs are constantly being improved.
Our JS error signatures follow the format: <filename> : <error message>
The filename refers to the first available filename or method name in the stacktrace. We parse the filenames and method names to make sure they are general enough to capture multiple instances of the same error, or similar errors that should be resolved with a single fix.
We're constantly actioning improvements to Noibu's error signature algorithm, but its current behaviour isn't perfect. In some scenarios, the algorithm may fail to group identical issues, or group issues that are better left as separate errors. If you find any mistakes with how issues are grouped, please reach out! We value your feedback, and your help can only make the algorithm better.
