Why does myprocess-background server process have no logs?

Hey everyone! I upgraded to functions level 1 on my site, and I love netlify functions :slight_smile:

One question… there is a special type of background function, where you name the function with -background on the end.

This is great, because background functions are not subject to the 10 second timeout.

However when I go into the logs, there is no ability to see the past logs of a background function.

I can see the log in “realtime”, but I cannot search the log for the last 24 hours.

Can I search the log of my background function somehow??


Hey @tr0n,

Unfortunately, background functions don’t have great (if any) logging support yet. This is party a reason why we haven’t yet launched Scheduled Background Functions.

There are open issues for it, but we don’t know if/when it will be fixed.
