Please see

The tl;dr is that the license it is provided under (BSL 1.1) is not OSI
approved due to the restriction on it's use by cloud vendors (ie. it has an
anti-AWS clause).
That restriction lapses after 36 months, at which point it is Apache 2.0

Based on what Harald has written earlier, it looks like Sentry is the only
suitable game in town for what we need - the only question is whether we
are happy to make use of BSL 1.1 licensed software given that we have
traditionally only deployed 100% open source software to our systems (which
is why we use Gitlab CE over Gitlab EE)
