Stackdriver Error Reporting counts, analyzes and aggregates the crashes in your running cloud services.


To begin, install the preferred dependency manager for PHP, Composer.

Now install this component:

$ composer require google/cloud-error-reporting

This component supports both REST over HTTP/1.1 and gRPC. In order to take advantage of the benefits offered by gRPC (such as streaming methods) please see our gRPC installation guide.


Please see our Authentication guide for more information on authenticating your client. Once authenticated, you'll be ready to start making requests.


The Stackdriver Error Reporting client provides APIs allowing you to easily configure your application to send errors and exceptions automatically to Stackdriver, or to manually report and manage errors and statistics.

Reporting errors from your application:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Google\Cloud\ErrorReporting\Bootstrap;
use Google\Cloud\Logging\LoggingClient;
use Google\Cloud\Core\Report\SimpleMetadataProvider;

$projectId = '[PROJECT]';
$service = '[SERVICE_NAME]';
$version = '[APP_VERSION]';

$logging = new LoggingClient();
$metadata = new SimpleMetadataProvider([], $projectId, $service, $version);
$psrLogger = $logging->psrLogger('error-log', [
    'metadataProvider' => $metadata

// Register the logger as a PHP exception and error handler.
// This will begin logging application exceptions and errors to Stackdriver.

Using the Error Reporting API:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Google\Cloud\ErrorReporting\V1beta1\ReportErrorsServiceClient;
use Google\Cloud\ErrorReporting\V1beta1\ReportedErrorEvent;

$reportErrorsServiceClient = new ReportErrorsServiceClient();
$formattedProjectName = $reportErrorsServiceClient->projectName('[PROJECT]');
$event = new ReportedErrorEvent();

try {
    $response = $reportErrorsServiceClient->reportErrorEvent($formattedProjectName, $event);
} finally {


This component is considered beta. As such, it should be expected to be mostly stable and we're working towards a release candidate. We will address issues and requests with a higher priority.
