No production.log file in Rails App on Digital Ocean App Platform

There is not production.log platform for our Rails app on the Digital Ocean App Platform. Is there a way to enable and access the production.log file without going through the dashboard console for Rails applications on the App Platform?

Hi michael1025401,

You can use doctl to fetch the logs for your app. To fetch the log file use the following, replacing <app-id> with your app’s UUID

doctl apps logs <app-id>

If you want to save the log you can pipe it to a file like:

doctl apps logs <app-id> > production.log

And if you want to follow the log as new requests come along you can run

doctl apps logs <app-id> -f

Best, Moises
