Today we added a subtle tag to your logs:

User tag

This makes it dead simple to tail a user. A few use cases we’ve seen from our customers:

  1. Tail yourself.

    Have you ever wanted to test something in staging or production, but there was too much noise in your logs? This gives that “development” like experience in these environments, narrowing the logs you see to just the ones you’re generating.

  2. Watch a custom reproduce an issue.

    We recently had a customer unable to identify an issue with one of their clients. They were able to easily narrow down to that specific user and identify a bad header they were sending. A problem that would have taken hours, took < 15 minutes to resolve.
