Exporting Log lines

This guide covers how to use the export lines functionality in the LogDNA web app. Exporting lines gives you a local copy of your specified log lines.

Overview

When you use the LogDNA web application to export log lines, the lines are exported in JSON line format (.jsonl) and are emailed to your LogDNA user email address.

Note

You can also export your log lines programmatically using our Export APIs.

Instructions for Exporting Log Lines

To export your log lines:

  1. Perform your search query for the desired log lines.
  2. Click on the view menu to the left of the All Sources filter and select Export Lines.
  3. Select a time range to apply to the search results.
  4. Select an option to prefer newer or older lines in case the export exceeds our line limit.
  5. You will receive an email with a link download to your exported lines.
