Remote Debugging allows users to debug a remote device (in the cloud) as if it was locally connected to the user computer.

Press the Remote-Debugging button to open the Remote Debugging Panel.


Press the 'Start' button to start the remote debugging session. Once the Start button is pressed, a button named Stop will appear.

Pressing the 'Stop' button will terminate the remote debugging session.

Closing the web session (by closing the tab or the browser) will terminate the remote debugging session automatically after few seconds.

Note: In order for the remote debugging to work, SeeTest Remote Debugging service must be installed on the user's computer.

If this service is not installed the user will see the following message when pressing the remote debugging button:

Users can press the installer download link to download the service installer. After installing the service, the user should press the Remote Debugging button again.

Remote debugging for iOS:

NOTE: In order to perform debugging on an iOS device you should open STMW on a mac device and be sure you have SeeTest Remote Debugging service and Xcode installed.

In order to perform remote debugging you will need to generate symbols matching the device build id:

1.Click on START DEBUGGING to generate symbols.

After you click the button a folder with iOS version + build ID will be created at  /Users/USER_NAME/Library/Developers/Xcode/iOS DeviceSupport/IOS_VERSION +BUILD_ID

containing device date. This operation will generate symbols and take up to 1 minute.

2.Click on start.

If you click on DOWNLOAD FROM DEVICE Xcode will still generate symbols, however, it will fetch data from a device and can take up to 2 hours.

Secured connection

In case the agent is using a secure (HTTPS) connection, a one-time approval process must be done by the user to approve the browser to use the remote debugging service via a secure connection.

The user should follow the instructions in the message box to perform this one-time approval process.

iOS remote debugging

Important: Apple's iTunes and Xcode software must be closed before starting the remote debugging session.

iOS devices can be debugged only from macOS
