Troubleshoot Custom Databases

Troubleshoot Custom Databases

You can use return errors resulting from your custom database connection for troubleshooting purposes. We will also cover some basic troubleshooting steps for your scripts.

Types of errors

There are three different errors you can return from a database connection:

Error Description
new WrongUsernameOrPasswordError(<email or user_id>, <message>) an error that occurs when you know who the user is and want to keep track of a wrong password being used
new ValidationError(<error code>, <message>) a generic error with an error code
new Error(<message>) a simple error (no error code included)

Return errors

To return an error, call the callback function while passing error as the first parameter:



callback(new ValidationError('email-too-long', 'Email is too long.'));

Returning errors when using Lock

If you use Lock, you can customize the error messages that will be displayed by adding them to the dictionary.

Troubleshooting Errors

Test the script using the TRY button.

If you do not get the expected result or you receive an error, install the Real-time Webtask Logs extension and use console.log() statements in your script and try the connection again. The output of console.log() will print to the Real-time Webtask Logs window.
