How to create a technical report in Parallels Access

21 users found this article helpful


Technical data report consists of computer configuration information, log files and Parallels account & license information. Parallels Engineering and Support teams use this information to diagnose and troubleshoot reported issues. For more information about technical data report details please refer to KB 114025.

Parallels Access has two sides: client side (iPhone, iPad, Android-based tablet or phone) and agent side (Mac or PC computer/laptop). Therefore while troubleshooting technical issues you may be requested to provide Parallels Support with two technical reports: from both agent and client sides (the order does not matter).

NOTE: Generating a Parallels Access Technical Data Report is not considered as request to Parallels Support.
