#27877 assigned New feature

Management command exceptions should be logged

Currently, crashes in management commands easily go unnoticed if they are called e.g. by cronjobs. We learned that the hard way :)

It would make sense if management commands would automatically log exceptions so they get processed as specified in the logging configuration just like all other crashes.

Workarounds do exist, like adding a try/except to or writing a decorator and apply it to all the management commands.

Ref #21429, which is about using logging for output in management commands.
