Cron Job log streaming limitations?

I’ve set up a new cron job almost identical to a web service I have configured that streams logs to BetterStack.

For whatever reason, I can’t seem to get the logs from the cron job to pass logs to BetterStack despite triple checking my configurations. Before going going down any more rabbit holes, I wanted to check if there are any differences / limitations between a cron job and web service that might be limiting this on the Render side?

Hi there,

There shouldn’t be any Render platform reasons why a Web Service can log to BetterStack and a Cron Job cannot. They both have the same ability to make outbound networking connections.

Thank you for the insight. My issue was that the job was completing and the process exiting before the logs could actual be flushed.
