IMPORTANT - If you make a support request we might ask you to turn on logging, reproduce the issue and send the relevant log file to us in order to help us identify the issue.

Occasionally, access tokens and other sensitive information might end up saved in the log file - we would recommend before sending us any log file that you first review it and delete anything which looks like an access token, credential or other sensitive information.
