Form Error

The Form Error command records information about an unexpected JavaScript error in the application, storing this information in the TM Error Log for operational support. Error Log records include the JavaScript stack trace and any context information specified by the application. These Error Log records are associated with the submission record enabling analysis of application specific errors.

The TM server limits the number of errors recorded per transaction to a maximum of 10 to ensure error logging does not impact system performance.


Form Error was introduced in Transact Manager 18.05, and continues to be available in later Journey Maestro releases.


All options are optional unless otherwise indicated.


Required. A JavaScript stack trace, with new line ('\n') delimiters.


Application state or other information to help understand the context of the error.

Format this context information as a comma separated list of values which TM will display as separate line items in the Error Log view.
