Question

Can `doctl app logs` also show worker threads?

LoggingDigitalOcean API and CLI (doctl)DigitalOcean App Platform

I am able to display my web app’s logs based on this article: https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/how-to/view-logs/ with the following command:

doctl app logs -f <app_id> – it is great!

However, this only seems to show the web component’s logs and does not show the worker component’s logs.

Is there a way to show logs from the worker components, as well?

Hello,
The command doctl apps logs by default show logs of all components. But you can specify the component name to get logs for that specific component.

“doctl apps logs <app id> <component name (defaults to all components)> [flags]”

    Thanks for your answer.

    • Confirming that “doctl apps logs <app id> <component name>” is working
    • However I’d like to correct that omitting <component name> does not default to all components in my case. It’s only showing log from the first (web) component but not from the second (worker) component.

    Just FYI - thanks.
