Greetings! Starting this week, we’re going to be rolling out some new features on the Function Logs page in the Netlify app. Here’s what you can expect. Please note that we’ll be utilizing a gradual deployment strategy for this release between today and the 18th of February, so you may not see these new features in your account immediately.
Before this update, function logs that had been previously generated were longer available in the Netlify UI once a new version of the site or function code was deployed. Now, you’ll be able to view function logs from previous versions to validate improvements and compare performance.
Loading non-current logs used to be a real drag. Now, viewing your logs from the previous hour, two hours, 24 hours (or more, in some cases) is easy and painless.
You can now select from more options in the timeframe selection dropdown to make narrowing your search down easier. You can also still enter a custom timeframe for even more refinement.
Need more than 24 hours worth of logs to monitor function behaviors and verify improvements across your development cycles? With this release, if you are on Netlify’s Pro, Business, or Enterprise plans, you’ll now have up to seven days of functions log retention.
We’ve got more improvements in the works to help improve your function monitoring and troubleshooting workflow. If you have specific use cases that aren’t being addressed, let us know here in this thread! We’d love to hear how we can help.
