Debug logs


These are the most common logs and are required for all Microsoft support cases. Debug logs are produced by the Windows and Mac desktop clients, as well as browser based clients. The logs are text based and are read from the bottom up. They can be read using any text based editor and new logs are created when logging into the client.

Debug logs show the following data flows:

  • Login
  • Connection requests to middle tier services
  • Call/conversation

The debug logs are produced using the following OS specific methods:

  • Windows:
    1. Right-click the Microsoft Teams icon in your application tray, select Get Logs
    2. Choosing Get Logs from the Help pull-down menu
    3. Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + 1
  • Mac OSX:
    1. Choosing Get Logs from the Help pull-down menu
    2. Keyboard shortcut: Option + Command + Shift+1

The debug logs are automatically downloaded to the following folders.

  • Browser: You will be prompted to save the debug log to default save location
Client Location
Windows %userprofile%\Downloads
Mac OSX Downloadsg


Media Logs


Media logs contain diagnostic data about audio, video and screen sharing. They are required for support cases only upon request and can only be inspected by Microsoft. The following table outlines the log location.

Client Location
Windows %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams\media-stack*.etl
Mac OSX ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/media-stack*.blog

Desktop logs


Desktop logs, also known as bootstrapper logs, contains log data that occurs between the desktop client and the browser. Like media logs, these logs are only needed if requested by Microsoft. The logs are text based and can be read using any text based editor in a top down format.

Client Location
Windows %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams\logs.txt
Mac OSX ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/logs.txt
