Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {PROJECT-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

When you create a log collection job, Ops Manager starts a background job to download the logs from the specified Ops Manager deployment. Use this endpoint to download a .tar.gz file stream for all logs associated with the specified job.

You can download logs from both successful and failed log collection jobs. If the job failed, all successful components are downloaded. The logs are downloaded to the same directory where the request is executed, and in the same format used when downloading logs through the Ops Manager UI.

Example

hostname/
automation_agent/
Automation-agent-verbose.log.2019-01-...
mongos/
...
myShard_1/
27017/
...
27018/
...

You cannot download logs from jobs in the EXPIRED or IN_PROGRESS states.

GROUP-ID
string
Required
Unique 24-hexadecimal digit string that identifies the log collection request job.
JOB-ID

Unique identifier of the job for which to download the logs. You can obtain the JOB-IDs associated with your project by using the Get All Log Collection Jobs for One Project endpoint.

The following query parameters are optional:

Necessity
Description
Default

boolean
Optional
Flag indicating whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format.
false
envelope
boolean
Optional

Flag that indicates whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

For endpoints that return one result, the response body includes:

Name
Description
status
HTTP response code
envelope
Expected response body
false

This endpoint doesn't use HTTP request body parameters.

This endpoint does not have response elements.

If you're using cURL to make requests, you must include the --output option and specify a file name to store your logs.
