Diagnostic bundles allow users to collect all the configuration files and log files from a specific VMware SD-WAN Gateway into a consolidated zipped file. The data available in the diagnostic bundles can be used for troubleshooting the SD-WAN Gateways.

Partner Super user and Admin with Gateway management access activated can create, manage, and delete diagnostic bundles only for Gateway created by a Partner or a Partner managed Gateway created by your Operator. The Partner IT support users can only view the generated Diagnostic bundles and download the CSV file.
Note: The Diagnostic bundles feature is not supported for Partner Business Specialist user.
