Log files are incredibly useful for Jira administrators. A function in Jira doesn't work as expected? An app is showing errors? The entire application is slow or doesn't respond at all? To investigate the problem, log files are the place to start troubleshooting as they contain information about all the processes in your Jira instance.

Without Last Log for Jira you would need application server access to inspect log files. Apart from being time-consuming to manually locate and inspect log files, for security reasons many Jira administrators don't even have access to the Jira home folder of the application server where the logs are stored.

Last Log for Jira displays log files where they belong - directly in the Jira administration user interface. View all your logs in one place, select the log you want to analyze and search for the information you're looking for with an advanced search and filter functionality!

Install Last Log for Jira directly from your Jira instance.
