Something went wrong!

I was doing that thing in that place when something happened. What should I do?

(I am using Magento 2.0 and I am receiving these messages that "Something went wrong." I do not see any stack traces in the log file. Where is this message coming from, and how do diagnose?)

    "I was doing that thing in that place when something happened." this is a joke, right? I mean, the error message is not meaningful, but that doesn't mean your question must have the same level of detail. Mar 21, 2016 at 11:00

The only place I can find that exact string is in Magento_Ui/view/base/web/js/grid/provider.js in the function onError(). It looks like anywhere in the admin a grid is being used, this component is initialized. I would start by looking at your xhr requests in the chrome inspector network tab and finding any responses that don't return a 200 code. If you can confirm that this ajax request is related to the action that gave you that alert message, you can go from there.


You should see a report being generated under var/reports with more details on what went wrong. See https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/111218/2363 for more information.
