Log streaming#

Feature availability

Log streaming is available on Enterprise Self-hosted and Cloud plans.

Log streaming allows you to send events from n8n to your own logging tools. This allows you to manage your n8n monitoring in your own alerting and logging processes.

Set up log streaming#

To use log streaming, you have to add a streaming destination.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Log Streaming.
  2. Select Add new destination.
  3. Choose your destination type. n8n opens the New Event Destination modal.
  4. In the New Event Destination modal, enter the configuration information for your event destination. These depend on the type of destination you're using.
  5. Select Events to choose which events to stream.
  6. Select Save.

Self-hosted users

If you self-host n8n, you can configure additional log streaming behavior using Environment variables.


The following events are available. You can choose which events to stream in Settings > Log Streaming > Events.
