Exceptionless Case Study – Scientific Lab Equipment

blog-header-image-small-case-studyIt’s always great to hear back from our users, whether it’s a simple “atta boy” or a full page’s worth of feedback.

Today we thought it would be nice to share a recent case study from one of our users that lives in the scientific laboratory and processing equipment space. Their company is a leading provider of stirring, mixing, and kneading machines, among other things, that are used by the pharmaceutical, chemical, food, paint, cosmetic, and plastics industries around the world. Neat!

“It helps me zero in on what could be the issue, AND have a documented track of what all errors I’ve seen.”

Exclude and Protect Sensitive Data within Exceptionless

Exceptionless Data Exclusions for SecurityWe realize you may have sensitive data that could potentially be transmitted within an Exceptionless error, event, log message, etc.

In order to help make sure that information is not compromised, we have included a simple comma delimited field for data exclusions on the Exceptionless Project Settings page where you can add field names that you would like to be excluded from any error or event that is reported.

Once set, the excluded field data is discarded at the client level and never hits our servers. (more…)

The Power of Real-time Project Settings

Did you know there are customizable server/client configuration values within your Exceptionless Project’s settings? Well now you do – and knowing’s half the battle!

These project level settings are a dictionary of key value pairs (string key, string value). They are defined server-side and automatically pushed to the client when they are updated. Using this feature allows you to control what you send without redeploying your app, which we think is pretty cool! (more…)
