Detailed Error Reports – What’s Included?

When an error occurs in your app, you need to know the critical details, fast, so you can drill down and fix it. We get it – we’re developers too – that’s why we built Exceptionless.

The trick was organizing the data so it didn’t overwhelm our users, while still providing all the important stuff so developers wouldn’t have to spend extra time tracking down versions, requesting stack traces, or pulling teeth to get environment information.

Lets take a look at theĀ default information included with every error. We say default because you can easily add your own information with custom objects.

Each Error Occurrence

Every single error occurrence has the following tabs:

  • Overview
  • Exception
  • Request
  • Environment

On each of these, you can go to the previous or next occurrence for easy comparison.

Lets take a closer look at each tab.
