The following outlines the steps for defining settings within the Portal:
- Go into Settings/ Network Capture to pull up the settings form
- Input the base-domain that you want to capture the network transactions (i.e all transactions from sub-domains will be captured also)
- Click on Advanced to change the data type you want to capture. By default, Application/ json will be captured
