KubeSphere supports multiple log collection methods so that Ops teams can collect, manage and analyze logs in a unified and flexible way.
This tutorial demonstrates how to collect disk logs for an example app.

project-admin). The account must be invited to the project with the role of
adminat the project level. For more information, see Create Workspaces, Projects, Accounts and Roles.
