WebStorm 2018.2 Help

Reporting Issues and Sharing Your Feedback

WebStorm provides various means to report problems and seek for assistance. In this section:

Locating WebStorm log

On certain occasions, you will be required to attach the WebStorm log to an email to the support service. You can easily locate the log file as described below.

  • On the main menu, choose Help | Show Log in ....

Configuring WebStorm log settings

To avoid editing the log.xml file itself, WebStorm suggests a handy dialog box to change logging level for a category. This file resides under the bin directory of WebStorm installation.

  1. On the main menu, choose Help | Debug Log Settings....

  2. In the dialog box that opens, type the log categories names, separated with new lines.

While editing log.xml, keep in mind the following:

  • It is not recommended to change log.xml, because from time to time it causes problems with patches.

  • Editing log.xml should be done in tight contact with the support service. The reason is that the users might be unaware of the modules names to be specified, while the support service can suggest modules for the better diagnostics.
