Enable automatic log capture
The following permissions:
- Troubleshooting > Log Capture > Add, Delete, Edit, View
Troubleshooting issues with incomplete information can be difficult. Console logs provide Customer Care with a full picture of an issue. When problems occur, these logs provide visibility into the actions and events of an agent on Genesys Cloud.
Apart from manually gathering console logs, you can enable automatic log capturing for specific users in Genesys Cloud for 24 hours. When enabled, you can inspect or download the available console logs.
- Log capture only gathers logs that Genesys Cloud generates, and does not collect logs from any other open browser or tab.
- Logs may contain sensitive information.
- The logs are encrypted in transit and encrypted in storage.
- Captured logs are automatically deleted after 10 days.
- You can enable log capture only for five users at one time.
- Only users with the appropriate permissions can view and download log captures.
- The user who downloads logs to share with Customer Care or any other third-party partners must review the logs and remove any sensitive information before sharing.
- Log capture currently works only with the Genesys Cloud desktop and web clients. For integrations such as Genesys Cloud Embeddable Framework, Genesys Cloud for Chrome, Genesys Cloud for Firefox, Genesys Cloud for Microsoft Teams, Genesys Cloud for Salesforce, and Genesys Cloud for Zendesk, you can either use the server-side logs or gather logs manually. For more information, see Gather console logs and Gather console network logs.
