Connector logsedit

This document describes logs for native connectors and connector clients.

Enable logsedit

Elastic Cloud users need to enable logging to view connector logs. Go to Cloud > Deployment > your-deployment > Logs and metrics to enable logs.

Once enabled, you can view logs in Kibana.

Self-managed deployments and connector client logs are written to STDOUT by the connectors process.

You can also configure how much information is logged.

For native connectors on Elastic Cloud, configure the log_level user setting for Enterprise Search. See Add Enterprise Search user settings in the Elastic Cloud documentation.

For self-managed connectors, use the service.log_level setting in your connector service configuration file.
