Browser tools to debug a Freshworks app
Freshworks apps run in browsers, which collect and store log information from your apps. This means you can use your browser's console and network log features to troubleshoot bugs in your Freshworks apps.
For example, if an API call invoked by your app fails, Uiflow's logs may not help to find the cause. Browser developer tools enable you to run a post-mortem on the API request.

Click an individual request in the Network tab to display additional information about that request. The screenshot below, shows how you can inspect the request's headers, cookies, and other details from the respective subtabs to the right of the selected request:
