Fiddler is a debugging proxy that can be useful when troubleshooting integration issues. Fiddler can be used to capture traffic between ET and 3rd party applications ( JIRA, Rally, TFS) or between ET and your web browser.
Before you Begin
In order to complete the configuration to use Fiddler, you will require Administrator access to the ET server as you will need to update the ET web.config file.
Fiddler is used to capture HTTP web traffic between ET and 3rd party applications. This can be useful to identify the invalid XML being returned from the external system ( e.g. JIRA) server. Sometimes this information is useful in finding the root cause of a synchronization issue.
- Start fiddler
- Enable "Decrypt HTTPS traffic". You will be prompted to install/trust a local self-signed certificate. You must do this for SSL decryption to work correctly. To do this, select Fiddler Options from the Tools menu. Then from the HTTPS tab select Decrypt HTTPS traffic:
- Start Capture. Navigate to File>Capture Traffic (F12)
- Navigate to the web.config file. Add a new section your Enterprise Tester installations web.config file. Place the fragment just before the closing </configuration> tag at the bottom of the web.config file. The fragment should look like this:
JIRA base URL
- It is best to do this outside of working hours as it can disrupt / halt traffic between ET and an external system.
- Changing the web.config file to include the above entry and NOT having Fiddler turned on will mean traffic between the two systems will stop.
