  1. Launch the Web Client using IE 9

  3. Select the Network Tab on the debugger and click on the ‘Start Capturing’ button
  4. Click on “Create a new Record” from the main Screen of the Web Client.
  5. All the Requests from the application would be displayed in the browser as follows:
  6. Double click on the request that is in the following format:

  7. Double clicking would display the details of the response object. Click on the Response Body tab to display the contents
  8. Copy the contents of the response body from the Response body tab. 
  9. Forward the content in your support case to the HP Support team for review.
