Retrieve log files of shiny session when launched on shinyproxy


#1

Hi, I am trying to figure out how to get to the log files that Shiny-Server produces typically (i.e. the errors that may happen within a shiny runApp). I know where to find the logs of the Spring session when I start shinyproxy-1.0.2.jar, but where to find the shiny logs?
Impossible task insofar
Any help appreciated! Thank you in advance

Hi @mimaque,

Take a look at these settings:
https://www.shinyproxy.io/configuration/#reporting-issues

The container-log-path setting allows you to specify a location where the output of the R processes will be saved to.

I have enabled the container-log-path setting and can now see logs appearing in a /container-logs directory. However, I can’t see an extra ‘Report Issue’ link will be displayed in the navigation bar. Is there a special trick to see this link? Should it appear next to the Admin/Log out button?

Hi @fifthace,

Yes, the Report Issue link will appear alongside the Admin and Log Out buttons, but only if a support address has been configured:

shiny:
  proxy:
    support:
      mail-to-address: address.to.send.issues.to@host.com
