Vaadin debug window for AWI troubleshooting

    The Automic Web Interface is built using the Vaadin web UI framework. This framework provides a debug window that can be enabled by adding ?debug to the application URL, just after the slash following the hostname. E.g.,
    https://awi.mycompany.com/?debug#&system=AE_TEST&client=0001

    Vaadin has also published a blog post and video about the debug window. This tool is primarily intended for application developers, but it could also be useful to AWI administrators, e.g., for troubleshooting problems.

    Hello Michael,

    thanks for sharing that information. Had to debug the AWI and vaadin lately, this would have been valuable information.

    Hello,

    does anyone know if the Vaadin debug window still works in version 12.3? Unfortunately I have not managed to get the window opened yet...

    Best regards,
    Tim

    Negative on any debug window in my 12.3.1. with that trick (though I didn't know about this before).

    There are various ways to disable the debug window in Vaadin, possibly Automic now considers AE to be stable enough not to ship debug builds anymore? :D

    Unfortunately, it's not as simple as it being disabled in web.xml, where one could re-enable it. There are various other ways, Java properties and I don't know where they'd go, and as per Google also a Maven option, which is probably issued at build time, which might mean we're possibly SOL.

    Might toy around with the options later.

    ------------------------------
    These contain very good advise on asking questions and describing supposed bugs (no, you do not need to go to StackExchange for Automic questions, but yes, the parts on asking detailed, useful questions ARE usually relevant):

    I will not respond to PM asking for help unless there's an actual reason to keep the discussion off of the public forums.
