Pino v7+ Transport

This module can be used as a pino transport:
const pino = require('pino')
const transport = pino.transport({
  target: 'pino-logdna',
  options: {
    key // your LogDNA ingestion key

const log = pino(transport)

// Logs will now go to LogDNA'Happy Logging!')


This transport uses @logdna/logger under the hood, and most options are exposed through pino-logdna.
For a full list, please see the createLogger options.
An additional option is supported by pino-logdna:
  • emptyMessage <String> - When logging an object without a message,
e.g.{ some: 'data' }), the value of this option will be used for the outgoing message. Default: '<data log>'.

Legacy Transport

Usage as a legacy transport is still supported. The minimal configuration requires only your LogDNA ingestion key:
npm install -g pino-logdna
node ./app.js | pino-logdna --key="YOUR INGESTION KEY"

CLI Options can be supplied to the command:
node ./app.js | pino-logdna --key "YOUR INGESTION KEY" --env staging --tag foo --tag bar

CLI Options

Options for the CLI are the kebab-case equivalent of the @logdna/logger options:
  -v, --version                   Show version
  -h, --help                      Show usage information
  -m, --message-key [msg]         The field in the `pino` used as the display line in LogDNA
  -e, --empty-message [msg]       String value to use when no "message" property if found

@logdna/logger Options:
      --key                       *REQUIRED* Your ingestion key
  -t, --tag                       Tag to be added to each message; can be supplied multiple times
  -T, --timeout [30000]           Millisecond timeout for each HTTP request
      --app [default]             Arbitrary app name for labeling each message
  -E, --env                       An environment label attached to each message
