#15630 closed Bug (fixed)

Add to docs information about the fact that unhandled exceptions are not logged if DEBUG=True

Reported by: Goldan Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Goldan Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I failed to find the following valuable information in the documentation.

If DEBUG=True, logger.error() function is never called for unhandled exceptions (that cause the 500 error). See django/core/handlers/, function handle_uncaught_exception(). So the information about the exception is not logged anywhere.

It took me some time to figure it out, so I think it should be mentioned in the docs.

This report is either incorrect or I'm not understanding it as there's a logger.error statement in handle_uncaught_exception which logs exception regardless of settings.DEBUG.
