Device logs

Device logs are system logs specific to your application generated by Android logcat. They can help you access your application logs and are especially helpful if the application under test crashes during test execution.

Device logs are disabled by default. To enable device logs, you need to pass the deviceLogs parameter in the REST API request to start Espresso test execution. An example cURL request to enable device logs is shown below :

REST API endpoint :

POST /app-automate/espresso/v2/build
Parameter Description Values
deviceLogs Capture device logs during Espresso test execution. true, false
Default: false

Example cURL request :

Enable device logs for an Espresso test execution :

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" \
-X POST "https://api-cloud.browserstack.com/app-automate/espresso/v2/build" \
-d '{"deviceLogs": true, "devices": ["Samsung Galaxy S8-7.0"], "app": "bs://f7c874f21852ba57957a3fdc33f47514288c4ba4", "testSuite": "bs://e994db8333e32a5863938666c3c3491e778352ff"}' \
-H "Content-Type: application/json"
