Browser Console Logs Report

Overview

The Browser Console Logs audit report includes the text of all console messages found in the audit and when available, maps them to relevant tags. This is powerful for evaluating site health and for potential errors that are impacting data collection and customer experience.

This report helps you quickly see if JavaScript errors are preventing your tags from firing and hurting the integrity of your reports.

Summary Metrics

Error:  This is an important message indicating that a script failed to execute or a resource failed to load. Failing tags are sometimes caused by JavaScript errors, but script errors can also degrade the visitor experience. Use these messages to help troubleshoot what scripts may be causing problems on your pages.

Warning:
This is a notice of something that may need action but is not usually urgent.

Information:
 This is a message in the console. Normally it can be ignored.

Debug:
Similar to an informational message, these are messages specific to debugging your site or app.

Other:
