The Logic screen is a dashboard where all Custom Functions that have been deployed to a workspace can be reviewed. Consider it your catalog for any custom server side logic.

Custom Function Cards

Once custom functions have been deployed to a workspace, they will appear in a list on the left side of the Logic screen. Selecting a function will display the function's details on a card to the right of the functions list.

Function details include its type, description and relevant meta-data (configurations). Most importantly, clicking on the Logs tab will display the functions production logs.


Logs can tailed – watched in real time – and searched. To turn on tailing, turn on the "Real Time Logs" toggle. You'll see a prompt on-screen that a connection is/has been established.

Keep in mind that when watching the logs a short latency period can be expected. Every request made is assigned a unique ID that can be used to search and identify a single request.

If a console.log('...something') statement is used inside of a custom function, the printed result will appear here inside the logs.

Descriptions and Meta Data

All descriptions and meta-data attributed to a function must be added/updated inside the 8base.yml file. There is currently no support for editing functions in the management console.

Check out the 8base.yml docs to learn more about deploying functions to a workspace.
