Narrative

As a developer, I want to have context information for user error reports, so that i have a better chance reproducing them.

Acceptance Criteria

  • collect error information (URL, user agent, OS, maybe API response text/network information?)
  • display it in a textbox to the user with some support for easy copy/paste and instructions on how to report

We might want to revisit this if we get logstash ( #127 ) working. It would make it possible to report error context directly instead of putting the burden on the user, and just display a reference number. (It might also allow us to do deduplication, redirect the user to a knowledge base entry about that specific error and other fancy things.)

Dropping in favor of the T382 route. (See esp. the part about the error id in T499.)
