2. Activate Debug Mode

Debug mode for version 0.11.3 and after

@currents/playwright version 0.11.3+ simplifies collecting the debug logs by uploading them remotely to Currents.

To enable uploading the debug logs:

  • provide --pwc-debug flag to pwc CLI command, OR

  • set CURRENTS_DEBUG environment variable, OR

  • provide debug option to reporter configuration.

The following values will enable uploading the debug logs to our servers:

  • remote will upload the debug logs to Currents servers.

  • full will print the logs to stdout and also upload them to Currents.

For example:

# on Linux
npx pwc --pwc-debug=remote ... 

# on Windows
cmd /V /C npx pwc --pwc-debug=remote ...

When enabled, the debug logs will be uploaded to Currents servers and a confirmation message will be shown after the run's completion, for example:

Share the information about the collected remote debug logs with our support team for more effective troubleshooting.

Please capture and share the full debug log - that will help the support person identify the root cause faster

# on Windows
cmd /V /C npx pwc --pwc-debug ...
