Accessing your log files for troubleshooting
Pega Cloud customers can download log files from the My Pega Cloud tab in the My Support Portal for internal analysis or to share with Pega Global Customer Support (GCS). This ability to download logs is an enhancement to the Pega Predictive Diagnostic Cloud which offers the self-service capability to review alerts and exceptions.
From the My Pega Cloud tab, you can generate a bundle of specified log files created from your environment during the last 30 days. The log bundle is a compressed TAR file you can download to your local computer. If no logs are available that match your filter, the Generate log bundle button is not enabled.
Pegasystems periodically performs standard maintenance on Pega Cloud systems to upgrade your system to the latest system infrastructure. This feature is automatically enabled after your infrastructure is upgraded. For more information, see Pega Cloud Services maintenance windows and types of system updates.
