Sign Up Projects

Every Eclipse project can sign up to receive error reports. To do so, file a request in AERI's Bugzilla component. Projects projects can signup using the free error reporting service hosted by Codetrails. Check out [1] for details.


Check out the Codetrails Error Analytics manual.

Disabling AERI in builds and runtime Eclipse

The automated error reporting disables itself if it cannot detect a system property called eclipse.buildId. This is usually the case if you execute a test suite with Maven Tycho. If you want the automated error reporting to stay enabled, set the system property to ‑Declipse.buildId=some-id in your Eclipse launch configuration.

In the case you run your test suite in a 'normal' eclipse installation which already has the buildId, you can disable error reporting completely by setting the system property ‑Dorg.eclipse.epp.logging.aeri.skipReports=true.

Note: In Aeri 1.x the property name was org.eclipse.epp.logging.aeri.ui.skipReports.

Enable additional debug output

AERI can write additional debug information to the error log, e.g.,:

  • Network exceptions on startup.
  • Explanation why an error log event was ignored.

To enable the debug output,

  • Open ${eclipse.working.dir}/.options and insert the line:
    • On Mac it's .../ - next to the eclipse executable.
  • In your eclipse.ini add the following line before the -vmargs section:
  • Restart Eclipse.

Visit this page for details on how to use Platform debug tracing facility.


How can I collect error reports for my own Eclipse plug-ins?

AERI 2.x offers an Eclipse extension point where projects can register their own servers/endpoints via plugin.xml. See [2] for details.

Can I send error reports for my own Eclipse RCP applications?

Yes. Watch this webinar for details and check out the examples in the git repository.


To get in touch, post your questions to the EPP forum. Preferably you prefix your post's subject with [aeri] your subject title for questions about the automated error reporting.
