Glean provides a couple of configuration flags to assist with debugging Python applications.
Glean.configuration.ping_tag property can be used to add a special flag to the HTTP header so that the ping will end up in the Glean Debug View.
You can set it after
Glean.initialize is called:
from Glean import Glean, Configuration Glean.initialize( application_id="my-app-id", application_version="0.1.0", upload_enabled=True, ) # ... Glean.configuration.ping_tag = "my-ping-tag"
After doing so, something like
pings.custom_ping.submit() will send the custom ping to the Glean Debug View.
Glean.configuration.log_pings property is set to
True, pings are
logged to the console on
DEBUG level whenever they are submitted. You can set
this property in a similar way as the
ping_tag property above.
Make sure that when you configure logging in your application, you set the
level for the
glean logger to
DEBUG or higher. Otherwise pings won't be
logged even if
log_pings is set to
You can set the logging level for Glean to
DEBUG as follows:
import logging logging.getLogger("glean").setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
