Papertrail has had the ability to alert on searches that match events for years, but what about when they don’t? When a cron job, backup, or other recurring job doesn’t run, it’s not easy to notice the absence of an expected message. But now, Papertrail can do the noticing for you. Today we’re excited to release inactivity alerts, offering the ability to alert when searches don’t match events.
Ever wanted to quickly see which systems haven’t sent logs recently? Now it’s as easy as checking a traffic light. Visit the Dashboard and click a group name, then scan the list of systems:

Papertrail’s search alerts are great, but what happens when you need a specialized integration, or want to grab something other than raw messages and counts – like particular fields from a message, or data to analyze later?
Now, you can invoke a Zapier action using a webhook trigger, which can then perform any desired action in Zapier. This example Zap setup sends data on printer service behavior to a Google Sheet for later analysis.
Starting today, it’s possible to grant a user access to logs from certain senders/groups (within the same Papertrail organization). Additionally, we’ve added specific permissions for managing users, changing plans, and purging logs.
Today we’re excited to release new ways to act on specific events, including seeing surrounding and related context, copying a deep link URL, and transitioning to the command-line.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could drill down into your logs just by clicking? Today, we’re excited to release a feature that lets you do exactly that. We call it click-to-search.
Update: The new DNS records are now active.
The DNS records for Papertrail’s first four log destinations (

Important: Papertrail will continue accepting log messages sent to the old IPs.
Papertrail’s event viewer displays the full text of your events including the timestamp, log sender, and program. Sometimes, one log element can get in the way of what you’re looking for.
We’ve added a new way to control how messages appear, as a link labeled “Options”:
