Hello,

where can I find all the possible prefs for Fiddler? I found a lot in a random ebook, but is there a documentation or source code where a list of all of them can be found? E.g. I know there's fiddler.config.path.captures, but is there one for the  CustomRules.js or just the whole Documents folder in general?

Regards

Hello Przemek P,

 

You can type about:config in the QuickExec bar (bottom-left) in Fiddler Classic to load all active preferences, while the whole list is available on the following Fiddler Wiki page http://fiddler.wikidot.com/preflist . Learn more about the preferences system here.

Ok, thanks. Is that list 100% up-to-date and not missing anything?

I don't see a way to configure the path to the rules script or the entire documents directory still though. Is there a var that I missed?

While there is no UI option to change the path where the Fiddler2 folder and all subfolder resides (by default, the folder is located in "\Documents\Fiddler2"), you can change the default path through the Windows registry by opening "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Fiddler2" and then creating a new string with name "UserPath" and value the path to your new folder. This will be where all configuration folders and files will reside, including the Scripts folder and its CustomRules.js file.

 

For example (note the UserPath at the bottom, which sets a custom path to hold all Fiddler configuration folders and files):
