Fiddler Everywhere on Mac - Request Data is truncated and no Show More button is available

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Post a 69k request to a web api (encoded JSON data) via browser.
  2. Inspect request data in Text and Raw fields.
  3. Observe that the data is truncated in the middle of a property name (not a null char).

Example data posted (snippet with middle section excerpted):


There is much more data that should occur after the property "immediatePatientSafety".  There does appear to possibly be additional fields presented in the Web Form inspector although some of the values are truncated and have an ellipsis (...) following those lines, so I believe that the tool is capturing the data but will not make it visible or available in the Text or Raw Inspectors.

No option exists to configure the amount of request data that is captured or to cause the Inspector to "show more" data.

I need to be able to see the full text request to troubleshoot an issue with the back-end application.

I need the data available in the Text or Raw inspector so that I can cut and paste it out for external processing and discussion with the developers.

I noted that a separate bug report has been issued for a missing "show more data" option on large response records.

Hello Daniel,


Thank you for your bug report. We can confirm that indeed at this moment, the Inspectors are outputting some of the data with no so good formatting. The upcoming new release of Fiddler Everywhere aims to significantly improve that behavior by extending all inspectors' capabilities via a brand new editor. The latest version is expected within days, so stay tuned!
