Logs are captures of the standard output stream that you can inspect for information about activity related to your app. Anything you would see in a terminal if your app was running locally on your machine is captured here. It’s good practice to print well-labeled and helpful details about the operations your app performs because that information is invaluable when troubleshooting.

Viewing the logs in the App Platform dashboard lets you see real-time logs, which can accumulate quickly if your app is seeing activity. You can view historical logs with tools like doctl or the API.
