Required Data for Rendering Problems or Loading Issues

This article describes how to collect the minimum required information for Rendering Problems or Loading Issues.

If the required data is bigger than 50 MB you will not be able to use ZenDesk to upload all the information. In this case we would like to encourage you to use our upload service in order to attach all the required information.

There’s no straightforward resolution for this kind of problems. First step is to try to use a more recent web browser. If it doesn’t help, you should open a support ticket.

In order to help CloudBees to understand what’s happening on your instance, you should collect some data. Please use either Chrome or Firefox to run this procedure, these browsers include the required tools to help us.

  1. Take a screenshot of the web browser window, including its URL field
  2. Record the HTTP session and Javascript console content of your Web browser

Chrome

  1. Open the Developer Tools by pressing F12
  2. Click on the Network tab
  3. Ensure recording is enabled (round button at the top left of the Network tab should be red)
  4. Activate Preserve log checkbox
  5. Click the Clean button (second button at the top left of the Network tab)
  6. Access the failing page or reload it by pressing F5

  8. Click on the Console tab
  9. Take a screenshot of the browser window
