Sending log files to SODA Team


The SODA app saves all errors in several log files on your computer. In order to solve user issues, the SODA Team usually needs to take a look at those log files.

How to obtain the log files


To automatically gather your log files:

  1. Select the Contact Us tab in the navigation menu/sidebar.
  2. Click Gather Logs and then select a location to store the log files.
  3. They will be stored in a folder called SODA-For-SPARC-Logs


You can also get the log files manually. There are two locations where log files are stored. The first location is the log files for the Electron process. THe second location stores log files for the SODA server. When possible, both should be gathered and sent to the SODA team.

Electron Process Log Files

  1. Windows: C:\Users\your-username\AppData\Roaming\SODA for SPARC\logs
  2. macOS: ~/your-username/Library/Logs/SODA
  3. Ubuntu: /home/your-username/.config/SODA/logs

SODA Server Log Files

  1. Windows: C:\Users\your-username\SODA\logs
  2. macOS: ~/your-username/SODA/logs
  3. Ubuntu: /home/your-username/SODA/logs
