Chapter 8. Viewing CodeReady Workspaces operation logs

After the CodeReady Workspaces pods are created, you can view the operation logs of the application in the terminal or through the OpenShift console.

8.1. Viewing CodeReady Workspaces operation logs in the terminal

To view the operation logs on the terminal, run the following commands:

  1. To obtain the names of the pods you must switch to project where CodeReady Workspaces is installed:

    $ oc get pods -n=<OpenShift-project-name>

    This command shows the pods that have been created:

    NAME                                  READY   STATUS    RESTARTS  AGE
    codeready-6b4876f56c-qdlll            1/1     Running   0         24m
    codeready-operator-56bc9599cc-pkqkn   1/1     Running   0         25m
    keycloak-666c5f9f4b-zz88z             1/1     Running   0         24m
    postgres-96875bcbd-tfxr4              1/1     Running   0         25m
  2. To view the operation log for a specific pod, run:

    $ oc logs <log-name>

    The output of this command for the codeready-6b4876f56c-qdll pod (as an example) is as follows:
