Get Hook Logs

Use this API to get back the execution output logs for a given hook.

These logs will contain the output of any console.log statements that are included in a hook function.

Using a try/catch pattern is a good way to catch any unforseen errors and log them to make debugging easier.

For example, a pre-authentication hook with error handling and logging.

exports.handler = async (context) => {
    // Log the context object coming in to see what is included

    try {
        // Do something that accidentally causes an error
        // in this case user would be undefined
        user.policy_id = 12345;
    catch (error) {
        // Log the error so we can debug what went wrong
        console.error("Catch the error", error);

    // Fall back to just returning the user which 
    // will let them continue the login flow
    return {
        user: context.user
