Working with build logs
Build logs help you to observe and understand exactly what happened during a build. You can see build logs as they happen while a build is in process or you can view logs of a build after the build is completed.
You can use build logs to debug your builds in case you get any errors. Additional parameters and flags can also be used in workflow steps to see more details in build logs.What are Workflows and How to Use Them?
You can also download build logs in plain text format in case you would like to investigate them on your own or share with your team.
