Better to improve the start error message for FreeApp


When FreeApp fails to be started, Developer Portal > Environments guide to check the Logs. 

However, Logs are not supported for FreeApps.
The message should be modified like “Please, check the application configurations” or something like that to give useful information to users.


The error can be reproduced by publishing “SAP Blank App” project to Free Sandbox without modifying anything with Studio Pro 9.16.1.

Hi Edwin, thank you for your comment.
I agree, it is ok if live log works.
However, if application start fails (deploy error?), live log is not enabled. I could not find way to see any logs.



I Agree message might be modified, but..

FreeApps have no historical logs to analyse startup problems, but there is the option to view the live log when deploying/starting app:
