When exposing REST services is often useful to see what’s happening especially in case of errors.

Table of contents


Logs retention

Logs are kept in database for every REST requests made by a client application. They can be used for debugging and monitoring of the activity.

The Logs menu is shown only with Developer tools (?debug=1) activated.

By default, REST logs are kept 30 days. You can change the duration of the retention by changing the System Parameter rest.log.retention.days.

If the value is set to 0, the logs are not stored at all.

Logged data is: request URL and method, parameters, headers, result or error.

Logs activation

You have 2 ways to activate logging:

  • on the service component set _log_calls_in_db = True
  • via configuration

In the 1st case, calls will be always be logged.

In the 2nd case you can set rest.log.active param as:

`collection_name`  # enable for all endpoints of the collection
`collection_name.usage`  # enable for specific endpoints
`collection_name.usage.endpoint`  # enable for specific endpoints
`collection_name*:state`  # enable only for specific state (success, failed)


First official version.
