Logs Permissions

The following permissions are available for Logs and the associated features:

Traces Permissions

The Traces permissions enable a user assigned this role access to view the Traces page and features associated with Traces. 

To view data on the Traces page, you must have both Traces View permission enabled as well as View permissions on the Service groups.

If the Traces View permission is disabled, you can not view any of the data presented on the Traces page (even if you have access to the Service groups corresponding with the traces).

If you have Traces View permissions enabled, but only view access to a subset of Service groups, you will not see the traces in your LogicMonitor portal. Any data corresponding to services that you do not have access to will not be visible.
