Settings-based targeted logging is ideal for logging exercises on a large number of devices or service troubleshooting. This logging configuration also requires system administrator privileges at the global organization group level access to enable, which is only available for On-Premises customers. For assistance with SaaS deployments, contact VMware Support.


  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Admin > Diagnostics > Logging.
  2. Select Enabled for the Targeted Logging setting, and provide a comma-separated list of Device IDs.
  3. Once log gathering has concluded, reset Targeted Logging to Disabled.
