How to retrieve logs from the action server (locally)

Hi everyone,

I have several custom actions running on my action server. I would like to get custom log messages from within these custom actions using the logging module. However, I cannot find the logs I am generating.

I use:

import logging
logger = logging.Logger(__name__)

# in any function
logger.debug("Some log message")

If I run my action server locally with: rasa run actions --actions actions --debug, these log messages do not appear although the function is executed. The only logs I get are of the form:

2019-08-06 12:00:14 DEBUG    rasa.cli.utils  - 'actions.py' not found. Using default location 'actions' instead.
2019-08-06 12:00:14 INFO     rasa_sdk.endpoint  - Starting action endpoint server...

127.0.0.1 - - [2019-08-06 12:01:20] "POST /webhook HTTP/1.1" 200 208 0.515258

Do you know where and how I can retrieve my custom log messages?

Thanks a lot for your help! Best, Nicolas

That was an easy fix actually. I needed to use logging.getLogger(__name__) instead.
