View Log Information

System logs allow you to collect platform-level information about installed/registered components. Log information includes date/time, machine name, environment, component, type, and event status in a grid format. When the log row is clicked, detailed error information appears, if any. It is necessary to define your existing Elasticsearch endpoint in order to use the optional System Monitoring function. To learn more about this procedure, see Define Elasticsearch Endpoint.
