Problems in Flex can range from relatively simple to quite complex. Troubleshooting steps depend on where you're working in Flex, interdependencies within Flex, and related information and apps outside Flex.
Apps that integrate with Flex often have their own troubleshooting documentation in their own help center. In many cases, Flex has tried to simplify troubleshooting these apps by including app-specific help in the Flex Help Center. Those articles contain the best information for problems arising in that area of Flex.
In this article, we've created an index of Flex troubleshooting resources so you can quickly find what you're looking for. We also walk through the basics of finding known answers and diagnosing problems. Armed with information, you can find existing solutions or submit a support ticket.

- When you find a match in a troubleshooting guide, click the link.
Depending on the specific error, you might see more than one link. Generally, the Error Message link is more specific than the Error Code link. When there is no error code/message or the solution applies to multiple errors, a link is provided in Problem.
