Get ready for a LogDNA product update – power user edition! This month we’ve added a number of powerful features to fulfill many of the awesome use cases we’ve heard from the LogDNA community. But first, we have an announcement!
Microsoft’s Founders @ Build event in San Francisco
LogDNA is speaking at the Founders @ Build event hosted by Microsoft. The purpose of the event is to bring cool companies together like Joy, Life360, GlamSt, GitLab, and LogDNA to share their experiences and perspectives. They’ve even invited Jason Calacanis (Launch) and Sam Altman (Y Combinator President) to weigh in. We’re excited to be part of these conversations informing the next generation of startups, and want to invite you all as well. You can check out the full agenda and register here.
And now for our regularly broadcasted product update.
By popular request, you can now export lines from a search query! This includes not only the lines that you see in our log viewer, but thousands of lines beyond that as well. This is particularly useful for those of you who want to postprocess your data for other purposes, such as aggregation. You can access this feature from within the View menu to the left of the All Sources filter.
We also have an export lines API, just make sure you generate a service key to read the log data. More information about the API is available on our docs page.
Web Client Logging
In addition to our usual server-side logging, we now offer client-side logging! This enables some new use cases, like tracking client-side crashes and other strange behavior. Be sure to whitelist your domains on the Account Profile page to prevent CORS issues.
When standard log lines just don’t cut it, this feature allows you to customize the exact format of how your log lines appear in the LogDNA web app. This includes standard log line information, such as timestamp and level, as well as parsed indexed fields. You can check out this feature by heading over to the User Preferences Settings pane.
We’ve officially added a trial period for our Heroku add-on users. For new accounts that sign up to our Quaco plan, we now offer a 14-day trial, so Heroku users can get the full LogDNA experience before they sign up for a paid plan.
- logfmt parsing – Fields in logfmt lines are now officially parsed.
- Exists operator – Search for lines with the existence of a parsed field with fieldname:*
- Disable line wrap – Under the tools menu in the bottom right.
And that’s a wrap, folks! If you have any questions or feedback, let us know. May the logs be with you!
