Description

Currently JavaScript errors in openQA are ignored and only visible when opening the development console in the web browser.

It would be useful if such errors would be

  1. visible to the user
  2. or logged on the server in case of failed API calls

instead of having no feedback at all.

In the second case the server could evaluate a referrer sent by the web UI to recognize failed API calls caused by the web UI specifically.

showing javascript errors to the user sounds insane. Logging to the server sounds far from trivial though - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/119432/logging-clientside-javascript-errors-on-server gives quite some hints.

And logging the error without knowing the details of the user's setup sounds unhelpful too - and refering our users to external logging services sounds overkill. So I'm undecided if this is a good idea at all.
