When troubleshooting complex issues, it is sometimes necessary for our support team to obtain additional information about the errors being seen in the console along with network requests that are generated in your browser while an issue occurs. A support team member may request that you record a HAR and Console log file, or a log of network requests, and console errors/actions while that issue is occurring and then provide those files to them for further analysis.
