Sharing Traffic with Fiddler Everywhere

This article covers the sharing capabilities of Fiddler Everywhere as follows:

  • Sharing session's snapshots—Options to save single or multiple captured HTTPS sessions as local/cloud snapshots in the save Sessions tree.

  • Sharing API request collections—Options to share API requests collections as local/cloud collections in the Requests list.

  • Sharing rules—Options to share single or multiple rules within the Rules tab.

Sharing Session's Snapshots

To share captured traffic with other collaborators, first, you need to save the session snapshot. When sharing is used, Fiddler transfers the saved sessions to the cloud. Only users with knowledge of the password can open the session entry for encrypted sessions.

Sharing Selected Sessions

To share a selected session from the ongoing capturing in the sessions grid:

  1. Select a session or multiple sessions from the sessions grid.

  2. Click the Share button from the more option. This action loads the Save Session prompt window.

  3. Give the snapshot a name, choose a destination folder, and then click Save and Proceed. This action loads the Share Sessions prompt window.

  4. Enter a valid email (mandatory) and notes (optional), and then click Share.

Sharing Saved Session Snapshot

To share a saved session snapshot from the save Sessions tree:

  1. Double-click a saved session entry from the save Sessions tree.

  2. The session entry opens in a new tab. Click the Share button from the more option in the toolbar. This action loads the Share Sessions prompt window.

  3. Enter a valid email (mandatory) and notes (optional), and then click Share.

Managing Users

The Manage Users option appears only if the session snapshot is stored in the cloud and shared. Click Manage Users to prompt a window that allows you to manage the list of users with access to the shared session.

Deleting Shared Sessions

Fiddler Everywhere provides options for deleting previously shared sessions. To select the sessions you want to delete, go to the save Sessions tree and use the Delete button. All users added as collaborators will be notified through the notification bar and with an email message that the shared session is now deleted. To restore deleted sessions, use the Shared Sessions option.

Sharing Requests Collections

The Composer in Fiddler Everywhere is a powerful tool that allows you to execute custom API requests. You can also store these requests in a collection in the Requests list and share all saved collections.

To share a collection of saved API requests, follow these steps:

  • Open the Requests pane.

  • Select a requests collection from the Requests list.

  • Click the Share icon. Then, enter the email addresses of the users in the Share Collection window.

  • You can share a collection only if you are the collection owner.

  • You can share only collection folders on the root level of the Requests list. You cannot share individual sub-folders.

Sharing Context with Collaborators

Some network sessions may lack essential details not captured in the technical data. Fiddler Everywhere provides options for you and your collaborators to add context to the captured and shared sessions, comment in the same communication thread, and provide additional information by adding comments per session and notes per shared entities.


Add a custom comment to one or more captured sessions to provide additional context.

  1. Select a session from the sessions grid or load saved sessions from the save Sessions tree.

  2. Add a comment by using the Comment option from the context menu or press the M key while selecting the desired sessions. As a result, the newly added comment will appear in the Comments column.

Add additional context in the form of a descriptive note while sharing one or more sessions.

  1. Use the Share option.

  2. In the first dialog window, provide a name for the shared sessions, set password protection, and choose the local destination folder.

  3. In the second dialog window, provide the additional information in the Add a note field.

Notifications for Shared Content

The Fiddler Everywhere client informs the collaborators about shared sessions in the following ways:

  • Collaborators receive an email with an invitation to open the shared session. If the session creator has added a note, the email will display the note as well.
  • All listed collaborators receive a notification within the Fiddler Everywhere client. To open the shared session in a separate tab, click the notification.
