Visor (logs)

The Deta Visor offers a user interface for you to see a live view of all the events (logs) processed by your Micro. You can use it to monitor and debug your requests, test your endpoints by sending requests, and more.

Opening Visor#

Start by logging into your console at deta.sh. You should be redirected to the following screen:

The Event List#

The Visor logs every single event made to your Micro, each event has the HTTP Status Code, the HTTP Method, and the time logged above it. Under this information are three tabs, letting you view the response, request, and logs of the event.

The "pen" icon lets you edit the request before re-sending it to your micro and the "redo" icon lets you send the same request again.
