Enable Logging for a Specific Device

PUT /logging/{acc}/devices/{deviceId}

Enables logging for a specific device.

Note: Verbose Logging is available as long as the device OEM supports it. 

Uses and Requirements

If a pilot campaign is not successful, you can enable and fetch logs for the device. Logging turns off automatically after seven days to avoid unnecessary device resource usage. When the device checks in after that setting is enabled, the device starts collecting logs. The device periodically uploads those logs to ThingSpace and purges them from the device. After at least 24 hours, you can call the Verbose Logging API again to fetch the logs for analysis or can view the check-in history as reported by the FOTA server. (Note that Check-in history is independent of enabled or disabled logging.) After 30 days, the logs are purged from ThingSpace.
