Log file collection
IBM® Support might need to collect log data to assist with troubleshooting the MaaS360® product across multiple platforms. In most cases, you can generate logs and send the logs to a secure email address where agents collect the logs for review. In rare cases, where devices might not have a configured email account, or when Cloud Extender® logs are too large to send by email, IBM Support might need to collect logs remotely.
If IBM Support needs to collect logs remotely, such as iOS and Android MaaS360 agent logs or Cloud Extender logs, the logs are uploaded and transmitted by encryption to a secure Amazon Web Services S3 server.
Location of log files stored on internal IBM servers
Cloud Extender logs are stored in individual folders with a unique portal number only (no customer names), and the logs are tagged with a DIAG### followed by the time and date stamp in a compressed file. iOS agent diagnostic logs are tagged with a portal number and a device name. Android agent diagnostic logs are tagged with unique identifiers that include the device name, and depending on the upload method that you use, a portal number.
Uploading log files to internal IBM servers
Users can upload log files to a secure, on-premises JIRA server that is only accessible from internal IBM networks.
