The Fiddler Jam extension can be used entirely anonymously without the explicit need for a user account and authentication. However, using a single account for the Fiddler Jam extension and Fiddler Jam portal provides the advantage of efficiently managing your previously captured logs through the My Captures section. Authenticated users that also have associated Jam portal accounts can directly upload recorded logs to a Jam workspace.
Login into the Fiddler Jam extension as follows:
- Install and start the Fiddler Jam extension.
- Click on the account icon on the top-right corner of the extension.
- Login with your Fiddler Jam account.
The My Captures section provides easy access to previously recorded logs. The Fiddler Jam logs are listed in order by time of appearance, and each entry has the following options:
- A log entry can be viewed and managed in the Fiddler Jam portal through the link button. Applicable only for active portal users.
- A log entry can be permanently deleted through the delete button and an explicit deletion confirmation.
The deletion will remove the log for the extensions My Captures section and any Fiddler Jam portal workspace where the log was added. The deletion is permanent and irreversible.
Note that some of the functionalities like a quick link to the log to the Fiddler Jam portal are available only for active portal users. However, the captured logs will be availalbe in the My Captures section for authenticated and unauthenticated users, and will remain on the machine unless deleted or explicitly removed from the machine storage.
