Because the Webtask Logs extension uses the users request, logging sensitive information is a concern of which you should be mindful.
For example, your custom database scripts work with the
user object extensively. The
user object may contain sensitive information, and logging the complete object may lead to its disclosure to the Webtask Logs extension.
Obviously, Auth0 strongly discourages such practices. These actions could lead to the disclosure of your users' sensitive information. We caution you to be aware of the objects that you log and to ensure sensitive information is not logged
The Real-time Webtask Logs extension can be used to debug any Rules in your implementation. This includes all
console.log output and exceptions. Let's follow a simple hello world example.
You are now ready to run this rule. Before you do so, open a new tab and navigate to the Extensions page of the Management Portal, click on the Installed Extensions link, and select the Real-time Webtask Logs line. You are now viewing logs real-time and are ready to try your rule. Go back to your Rules tab and click TRY THIS RULE. Then head back to your Real-time Webtask Logs tab to see the results.
