When troubleshooting complex issues, it is sometimes necessary for our Support Specialists to obtain additional information about the network requests that are generated in your browser while an issue occurs. A Support Specialist may request that while that issue is occurring you record a HAR file which is a log of network requests. They'll use the HAR file for further analysis.


Browsers:
