How to get additional details when we ask for them (logs, database, HAR file)

On this page:

Sometimes we need additional details from you to investigate your issue more efficiently. In this case we will kindly ask you to send us Upsource log files, Upsource database, or record a browser session into a HAR file.

All these artifacts should be uploaded to our secure FTP server: ftp://ftp.intellij.net/.uploads under Anonymous user. Anyone can upload a file to this server. When done, please share the name of the archive with us.

How to get Upsource log files?

By default, log files are stored in the /logs directory of the folder where ZIP archive was extracted, so called Upsource home directory. If defaults were changed (Advanced settings area in Configuration wizard) during installation process, the log files can be found in the directory you've set.

Where to find the Upsource database?

By default, the database is stored in the /data directory of the folder where ZIP archive was extracted. If defaults were changed (Advanced settings area in Configuration wizard) during installation process, the database can be found in the directory you've set.
