Download logs

Follow these steps to download logs :

  1. Go to the Troubleshooting and Support page for the Jira Misc Workflow Extensions add-on.
  2. Select a level from the Filter logs drop-down.
    Filter logs: The Filter logs drop-down has options to limit the download to log entries matching the selected level or higher.
  3. Select a format from the Format drop-down.
    Format: The Format drop-down has options to select the format in which you want to download the logs.
  4. Click on Download logs.

Your logs are now downloaded in the selected format with entries matching your selected level or higher.

In this page, you can download a log of events from the last seven days at most. The download is limited to 500 events at most that match your selection.

Set temporary log level

By default, events with a level below WARN are not stored and therefore cannot be included in the logs downloaded. However, for troubleshooting purposes, it is possible to temporarily increase the amount of logging by changing the minimum level. The new level set here will remain for one hour, and will thereafter revert to the default level, i.e. the WARN level.

To set a temporary log level select the required level from the Temporary log level drop-down and click on Apply. Click on Reset to revert the log level to the default WARN level.
