Plugins stores four types of information:
last_used_parameters.json – contains parameters provided lately by the user; this file is used to load settings automatically without need to reentered all of them every time user runs the plugin;
Statistics.json – contains durations (in milliseconds) of executing most time-consuming operations within the plugin; this file is used to calculate and presenting estimated time of execution;
Error_YYMMDD_HHmmss.json (where YYMMDD_HHmmss means time when file has been created, format:YEAR MONTH DAY _ HOUR minute second) – this file can be created (1) only during errors; it contains parameters used during fault execution; it can be used (2) by the author for reproducing and resolving issue reported by the user;
Stacktrace_YYMMDD_HHmmss.txt (where YYMMDD_HHmmss means time when file has been created, format:YEAR MONTH DAY _ HOUR minute second) – this file is created only during errors; it contains logs of specific place in the plugin where the error occurred and it contains physical paths to plugin's files on user’s machine (3); it can be used (2) by the author for reproducing and resolving issue reported by the user.
Those files are stored on user’s machine. No internet communication is done by the plugin. Personal information (ex. phone number, user name, address, OS version) are not collected. All mention files can be viewed by simplest text editors in any operating system so user can check them anytime. Depending on the plugin’s version those files can be located in a Fusion 360® newest installation folder or in the plugin’s directory (information where they are located are mentioned in the videos in Screenshots section on plugins’ pages).
File is created only when problem occurs during creating features (after clicking “OK” button on the plugin window, not before);
User decides whether send those files to the author or not;
It is a natural consequence of how logging stores information about errors. This is normal and common behavior in all programming languages and technologies and it helps to trace cause of errors and thus prepare solutions.
