Using the extension for Visual Studio

Being able to focus on .NET developers makes it possible to do all kinds of cool things. Like building an extension for Visual Studio. That's exactly what we've done and here's how to use it.


Download the extension for Visual Studio ≤ 2019 or Visual Studio 2022 from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Don't use the Extensions and Updates feature inside Visual Studio, since Visual Studio causes a problem with installing extensions in previous versions.

Double/click the downloaded VSIX and enable in the versions of Visual Studio of your choice. The extension supports Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022.


Inside Visual Studio navigate to View | Other Windows | or simply search for in the Quick Launcher (Ctrl + Q).

You'll see the window somewhere. Click the Sign In button and sign in with a username/password or one of the social providers:

If this is the first time someone is browsing the chosen organization from Visual Studio, authorize the creation of a new API key:

Authorize API key

Once logged in, the list of logs is populated with all of your logs defined at Select a log and click the search icon:

Browse a log inside Visual Studio

Log messages can be filtered by date range, full-text search, and using Lucene query language as already known from the UI.

To inspect a single message, double-click it and the message details window will open:
