Hi Aleksandra,

Thanks for trying out Elastic APM Integration. Had a quick look and it seems that the default integration of Angular Error Handler prints the error message to the console and does not rethrow them as ErrorEvent which means the RUM agent won't be able to track it automatically.

However there is an recommended approach from the Angular docs to implement a custom ErrorHandler for the application module and we could use that to capture errors in APM easily.

import { ErrorHandler } from '@angular/core'
import { apm } from '@elastic/apm-rum'

export class APMErrorHandler implements ErrorHandler {
  handleError(error) {

and you would have to use that in your Application Module in this way

  providers: [{provide: ErrorHandler, useClass: APMErrorHandler}]
class MyModule {}

Please refer to the Angular docs - https://angular.io/api/core/ErrorHandler and do let us know if you run in to any issues.
