If you’re using IBM App Connect in Bluemix, you can now view log information for your flows in Kibana. This means you’ll be able to see a longer history of log messages and can also use Kibana’s capabilities to search and filter the logs; for example, you might want to restrict log messages to a particular time range, or filter to only view success messages. In both the Bluemix and non-Bluemix versions of IBM App Connect, you’ll still be able to see the latest error messages for your flows on the Dashboard, as before.

IBM App Connect is just one of a number of IBM products that enable you to view logs in Kibana, which means that you can create custom dashboards to view logs from multiple applications, that write logs to the same Bluemix space. For example, Martin Boag’s article Exploiting Bluemix and Logmet Kibana Dashboards with IBM Integration Bus version describes how to configure IBM Integration Bus to view logs in Kibana.

To view your IBM App Connect logs in Kibana, click Logs in the hamburger menu. If you want to find out more about using Kibana, see https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/4.0/discover.html.
