Configure exception handling

Use the agent.config properties to set exception reporting based on your needs. This is a global file, meaning that once you update the file, all applications attached to the same agent are updated accordingly.

The configuration file is located at the following path:

<install_dir>/agent/agent.config

To start receiving exceptions and insights, and to enable your team to view exceptions as well, configure the agent as follows:

  1. From the relevant application server, go to the folder where you stored the agent zip and extracted its files when you downloaded it.

  2. Open the agent.config file.

  3. Find the exceptions_monitoring_enabled property and set it to 1 so that it looks like this: exceptions_monitoring_enabled=1

  4. To configure the agent to ignore exceptions that your exceptions handler catches along the way, set the exceptions_should_report_caught property to 0.

    It should look like this: exceptions_should_report_caught=0

  5. Restart the relevant applications and their installed agents to apply the changes.
