Task log rotation


Can i do automate task log rotation?

I can setup rotation logs for Octopus Server (by the octopus.server.exe.nlog) and for Octopus Tentacle (tentacle.exe.nlog). What about tasks log?

Thank you

Hi varaksinsy,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your query.

Task logs are stored in the database and are managed by the Octopus Server itself. This means that there is no need to configure task log file rotation.

You might be interested in setting up a custom retention policy however. Retention policies allow you to choose when releases (including their task logs), packages, files and so on are deleted. You can find out more on the page below:

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best Regards,


Thank you for the quickly updates.
And thank you for the explanations.

Got it
