How to find more detailed log for the gcp functions

When I am doing the lab5.6, it took me a long time to figure out the typo error which cause the function crush

I tried to read the function log, but the following is what I get, not very informative. Wondering if we can get a crush stack log for me to find out the bug easier.


insertId: "000000-e410caa4-0287-4e3f-b80d-c215e06a5430"

labels: {

execution_id: "pbc4oxnzl1ji"


logName: "projects/sturdy-hangar-276710/logs/"

receiveTimestamp: "2020-07-04T07:01:52.837476035Z"

resource: {

labels: {

function_name: "gen_thumbnail"

project_id: "sturdy-hangar-276710"

region: "us-central1"


type: "cloud_function"


severity: "DEBUG"

textPayload: "Function execution took 91 ms, finished with status: ‘crash’"

timestamp: "2020-07-04T07:01:51.834276757Z"
