You can view your application logs by following the steps here:

I personally like the doctl command-line tool and I use the command from the documentation to do so:

doctl apps logs <app id> <component name> --deployment <deployment id> --type <type value>

If you decide to store your logs inside the App component, you need to keep in mind that the storage is not persistent, so during your next deployment, the log will be lost.

For more information on persistent storage, I would recommend going through this documentation here:

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
