FAQ101: What is the Session ID and where do I find it?



The Session ID is a unique number created each time you run a session on Athera.  This article explains how you can find the Session ID for current and previous Athera app sessions and how the Session ID can be very useful information for support when troubleshooting a problem.



Each time you run an app on Athera a unique Session ID is assigned to that particular instance.  

We can use the Session ID to locate the session in Athera's admin logs to see detailed information about what happened such as any custom scripts loaded when the app launched and any error messages printed to the terminal by the application.

If you encounter any problems running an app on Athera then providing support with the Session ID will help us to troubleshoot any problems more quickly.  You can find the Session ID for both current and previous sessions
