In this section we’ll dive into the Exceptions page and find out what information we can learn from it. Start by selecting the Exceptions page from the Outline.

This page offers the following sections:

  • Overview: You can get Exceptions by Class and Count
  • Message: View the detail messages for all exceptions and errors.
  • Timeline/Event Log: View when a particular exception was thrown.
  • StackTrace: Identify where the exception was thrown from.

You can select an exception from the table to filter the information to that particular exception. You could also filter by a particular exception message.
