Recover Browser Logs for Investigation Purposes

When experiencing an issue with Finance Active applications, most of the time, an error message displays in the application, helping the Support team to quickly identify and fix the issue.

However, sometimes, there are no such messages and you then need to rely on the browser logs.

Data stored in your browser may include useful information for the investigation. There are 2 types of logs:

  • Information in the request sent over the network, i.e. the various steps used to process a web page
  • Information in the browser console

In both cases, to recover the logs during an issue:

  1. Identify the last link you click on that triggers the issue.
  2. Navigate back to the page right before the issue occurs.
