Retry failed requests
Since publishing this blog post the Retry failed requests feature has been removed.
We hope that you are utilising elmah.io to help you fix your bugs. Deciding if a bug is fixed or not, can be somewhat tricky. To help you investigate, we have launched a new Retry Request feature.
The Retry Request feature is available when expanding an error:
When clicking the icon, the Retry Request dialog is opened:
The dialog is filled with the details from the original and failing request like the URL, cookies, form values, and more. When clicking the Send button, elmah.io retries the failing request and shows the result in the Response section:
In the example above, the failing endpoint has actually been fixed and now returns the status code
200 along with some JSON. If you are using the built-in issue tracker on elmah.io, you can mark this error as fixed once the retry is a success.
We don't want to build a full REST client inside elmah.io (so many good ones already exists), why we allow you to download the complete request as a cURL command. You can either execute it from the command line or import the file into Postman.
Be aware that retrying
DELETErequests (and in some systems GET, oh my!) may make changes in your system.
The retry request feature is currently in beta, and we already have ideas to extend it. As always, let us know if you have input.
