Accessing and Managing Logs

Users can access a list of available log files for the selected environment using the Environments card from the Overview page or Environment Details page.

Downloading Logs

Follow the steps below to download logs.

  1. Navigate to the Environments card from the Overview page.

  2. Select Download Logs from the menu.


    From the Environment Details page:


    Regardless of where it is opened, the same dialog appears and allows for an individual log file to be downloaded.

  3. From the Service drop-down menu, select options such as Preview or Preview Dispatcher, followed by clicking on the download icon.

Logs through API

In addition to downloading logs through the UI, logs will be available through the API and the Command Line Interface.

For example, to download the log files for a specific environment, the command would be something along the lines of

$ aio cloudmanager:download-logs --programId 5 1884 author aemerror

The following command allows the tailing of logs:

$ aio cloudmanager:tail-log --programId 5 1884 author aemerror

In order to obtain the environment Id (1884 in this case) and the available service or log name options you can use:

$ aio cloudmanager:list-environments
Environment Id Name                     Type  Description                          
1884           FoundationInternal_dev   dev   Foundation Internal Dev environment  
1884           FoundationInternal_stage stage Foundation Internal STAGE environment
1884           FoundationInternal_prod  prod  Foundation Internal Prod environment
$ aio cloudmanager:list-available-log-options 1884
Environment Id Service    Name         
1884           author     aemerror     
1884           author     aemrequest   
1884           author     aemaccess    
1884           publish    aemerror     
1884           publish    aemrequest   
1884           publish    aemaccess    
1884           dispatcher httpderror   
1884           dispatcher aemdispatcher
1884           dispatcher httpdaccess

While Log Downloads will be available through both the UI and API, Log Tailing is API/CLI-only.
