Log Multiple Messages

If you would like to write messages to the Plex log to record events that happen, you can use this API command to write a multiple messages to the log. The messages will include the log level, message and the source of each message.

This API command is an efficient way of writing to the log as only one request is required to log multiple messages.


POST http://{ip_address}:32400/log?X-Plex-Token={plex_token}


ip_addressThe IP address of the Plex Media server.
plex_tokenThe Plex user token.

Return Status

HTTP CodeDescription
200Success - The request was successful.
400Bad request - A parameter is missing.
401Unauthorized - The Plex token provided is not valid.


No response is returned by the command. The status code will indicate whether the log was written successfully.


The log message specified using this API command will be displayed in the Plex Media Server console as well as the log file located in the data directory.

The logging information to be written is specified in the body of the request. The body is sent as a text and contains all the parameters for each log line to be written.

The parameters in the body are the same as those specified when logging a single message to the log.

For example, the following body text will write two messages to the log file:


The first message will show as an error with the message "Error message" from "computer1" in the log. The second message will show a warning with the message "Warning message" from "computer2" in the log.

You can append as many log messages as you would like to the body of the request.

The source parameter can be any value, such as the name of the application.

Ensure the message and source parameters are properly HTML encoded to ensure the values are parsed correctly.
