Explore Tool

The Explore tool exposes the power of query on your diagnostic data. Useful when you want to group by attributes other than fingerprint. 

You are able to use the same filters discussed in the Triage tool, and further use Group By and Aggregate functions to slice and dice your data by other attributes like version, user, app module, and more

In the image above, you can see how to choose any of your attributes to Group By. Typically, users will group by fingerprint, which shows you information about all errors that have been classified by a given fingerprint.

The power of Backtrace is fully on display when you being grouping by other attributes.  For examples, support staff may group by a userID to see all errors encountered by a given user, or QA leads may want to group by OS version to identify instability that may be associated to a new OS patch, or IT staff may want to group by deviceID to see instability by specific hostname. In all of these cases, it becomes useful to add an Aggregate of "Unique Fingerprints" so you can see both a count of individual errors as well as a count of the unique number of issues seen.
