Error analytics solutions like Rollbar can connect errors seen in your system to specific lines of code that may be causing the issue, allowing developers to quickly remediate issues before they become widespread. However, the problem with many of these tools is that in a distributed system, different services owned by different teams often collect varied telemetry data, making it difficult to trace an issue through the stack.

We’ve built an experimental OpenTelemetry plugin that works with Rollbar to automatically create attributes from Rollbar metadata. Whenever Rollbar is called from your Node.js service, it collects the values of those attributes and adds them to the span.

When you view a trace in Lightstep, if a span contains a call to Rollbar, the Rollbar UUID appears in the Attributes panel.Feature flag data in Lightstep
