Viewing Logs

In this step, you learn how to view (or "tail") the logs from the running website. Any calls to console.log in the site are displayed in the Output panel in Visual Studio Code.

Find the app in the AZURE APP SERVICE explorer, right-click the app, and choose View Streaming Logs.

When prompted, choose to enable logging and restart the application. Once the app is restarted, the VS Code Output panel opens with a connection to the log stream.

Enable Logging and Restart

After a few seconds, you will see a message indicating that you are connected to the log-streaming service.
