Can you get server logs from a static page?

I like the app platform, and I’d also like to host a static page. This is possible, but I just noticed that the server logs of the files being served don’t appear. Is this a feature for the future? Is there another way to host static files and still be able to see the serverlogs? I guess I could host it in a Docker container, but I’m wondering if that’s the most performant way.

Currently there are no server logs for static sites. Because static sites are distributed to our CDN endpoints, there are many servers in many regions.

However, your apps Insights tab shows aggregated details on metrics like latency and status codes which should be helpful.
