Analyzing Verbose Telemetry

APPLIES TO: Business Central 2022 release wave 1 and later

Business Central users can temporarily set up their environment to emit more verbose telemetry by going to the Help and Support page in the client and selecting Additional Logging. They'll typically only do this when asked by a partner or support representative to help troubleshoot problems. This additional logging will continue for 15 minutes or until the user closes the browser or signs out of Business Central—then it's turned off

A telemetry trace is recorded whenever additional logging is turned on or off.

For information about enabling additional logging, see Resources for Help and Support.
