Global Debugger

  • Dark


The Global Debugger allows users to have more flexibility to troubleshoot Designer Elements. It runs similar to a profiler and when turned on, it will capture running Flows and processes that are occurring. This helps troubleshoot processes that cannot be debugged efficiently with the Flow Designer Debug action. Scheduled Job Flows and Page Designer Tile Flows are two kinds of processes that are more easily troubleshot with the Global Debugger. 

Global Debugger Practices
Enabling this feature on Production environments is NOT recommended. Furthermore, when the Global Debugger is not needed for environmental data capture, it should remain disabled; keeping it enabled will drastically hinder performance.

Selecting the icon in Help Center will show a "Stop Global Debugger" action if the separate tab was closed.

How To Use

The Global Debugger can be enabled in the Designer Studio by clicking the wrench and cogwheel icon in the bottom left corner of the Decisions Studio and selecting Show Global Debugger

This action will open a new browser tab taking the user to the Global Debugger home page. Select the toggle in the bottom left corner to turn the Global Debugger on.

The Global Debugger features two dropdown options: Grouping and Preserve Data for. The Grouping option controls how the debugged data be grouped. There are three options users can choose from.

Grouping Options
No GroupingAll Debugging data will appear individually
Group AllGroups all related data that can be expanded for details
Group ConsecutiveGroups related process that were executed shortly after each other

The Preserve Data for option controls when the debugged data will refresh. This can be set for different pre-defined intervals or users can select the custom option to declare a refresh time interval. To have data appear in the Global Debugger, run a Flow or navigate to a user Dashboard.
