Advanced Options

Fiddler Jam provides several advanced capture options. These options allow you to enable or disable certain functionalities in order to modify the recorded output:

Fiddler Jam Advanced Options

Take screenshots while capturing

This option will take a screenshot of each user action during the capturing process. Each screenshot will be added to the ongoing recording as a PNG file. The activities that trigger a screenshot are clickable actions (buttons, links), interactions with forms, etc. By default, Take screenshots while capturing is enabled.

The screenshots are available only when accessing the recorded log through the Fiddler Jam portal. A recorded log exported as HAR or opened directly in Fiddler Everywhere won't contain screenshots.

Capture console

This option will capture everything outputted in the developer console, including the log and available stack traces. By default, Capture console is enabled.

The console logs are available only when accessing the recorded log through the Fiddler Jam portal. A recorded log exported as HAR or opened directly in Fiddler Everywhere won't contain console logs.

Mask cookies

This option will mask any cookies that are part of the captured requests and responses. Masking hides all cookie values while the cookie key names remain visible. By default, Mask cookies is enabled.

Mask post data

This option will mask any post data (for example, data from forms, input text fields, etc.). Post data is also the request body sent via POST/PUT/PATCH methods. By default, Mask post data is enabled.

Disable cache

This option will set the value of the Cache-Control and Prasgma headers to no-cache on each network request. By default, Disable cache is enabled.

Security concerns

Capturing all outgoing and incoming traffic for the current tab might expose sensitive or confidential data. Always consider the security aspect before sharing a recorded log. Learn more about the security details when working with Fiddler Jam.
