Accessing Android Log Output

In some cases, Android log ouput may be necessary to be able to troubleshoot an issue with the Meraki Systems Manager app.  To access this logging, perform the following steps:

If you'd rather not use the command line tool to debug, you can  log with the Android Device Monitor GUI within Android Studio.

  1. Install the Android SDK
  2. From there, navigate to the platform-tools folder
    • By default this can be found in the following locations:
    • Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\platform-tools
    • OS X: ~/Library/Android/sdk/platform-tools
  3. ​​To access the logging output, run the adb executable with the "logcat" argument:
    • Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\platform-tools> adb logcat
    • OS X: $ ./adb logcat​
  4. To save this output for later use (or to share with support), run logcat with the -f option to output the logs to a file:
    adb logcat -f c:\temp\androidlogs.log
