Jenkins : Logging Plugin

Plugin Information

View Logging on the plugin site for more information.

Developed by


This plugin enables slave and per build logging. Each build will get a single log file, collected from the master and the possible slave.

This plugin is intended for remote debugging/tracing other plugins where a traditional debugger is unavailable.


In the configuration page enter those logger names to be logged. These logs will end up in their respective build folders.


Check the "Enable poll logging" if logging should be in the polling phase. This log will end up in a special folder called "poll-logging" in the job folder.

Java Logger

The plugin only works with the java.util.logging.Logger. Use it as you normally would.


Each build, run with this plugin enabled, gets a menu item called "Logging". This links to the log of this particular build.

The poll logs are available from the projects main page.
