Navigate to Logs to review the logs of the Deployment Manager. The log files will contain detailed information about deployments. It is always a good first step to examine the logs if you experience failed deployments or upgrades, also we encourage you to include the logs if you need to contact us.

Log Level

The initial log level for the Deployment Manager is debug. After everything is setup and working as expected you can change the log level. Update the minlevel attribute of the nlog\rules\logger element in web.config file for the Deployment Manager.


By default, logs are archived by day and retained for 31 days. Configure the nlog\targets\target element in web.config to change.

Remote Access

If you can’t access the Deployment Manager, you can find the logs in the App_Data/logs folder of the Web App (get the publishing profile from Azure and connect using FTP).
