Logging Level

Earlier in the tutorial, we ran a docker-compose setup for hasura/graphql-engine and postgres. Accessing the server logs can be done using docker logs command followed by the container id of Hasura. This would output the graphql-engine logs for your local instance. If you would like to debug a Hasura Cloud Project, you can head to the Pro/Monitoring tab on the Hasura Console.

This tab will give various structured metrics of the API usage. Starting from the errors to websocket connections, the queries can be inspected individually. Unlike the open source version, the Cloud instance will have a better UX around inspecting individual requests.

By default, all log-types are enabled on Hasura Cloud. If you want to disable any of them, you can do so by configuring HASURA_GRAPHQL_ENABLED_LOG_TYPES ENV variable.

These are configurable:

  • http-log
  • websocket-log
  • webhook-log

There is a logging level that can be configured to specify how explicit the information should be. The log-level hierarchy is: debug > info > warn > error. This can be updated using HASURA_GRAPHQL_LOG_LEVEL with the highest logging level being debug. This coupled with the dev mode would give insights into what is going wrong in the underlying query / handler.
