A simple Serilog log viewer for following sinks:

serilog ui

Install the Serilog.UI NuGet package

Install-Package Serilog.UI

Then install one of the providers based upon your sink:

Provider Name Install Package
Serilog.UI.MsSqlServerProvider Install-Package Serilog.UI.MsSqlServerProvider NuGet package
Serilog.UI.MySqlProvider Install-Package Serilog.UI.MySqlProvider NuGet package
Serilog.UI.PostgreSqlProvider Install-Package Serilog.UI.PostgreSqlProvider NuGet package
Serilog.UI.MongoDbProviderr Install-Package Serilog.UI.MongoDbProvider NuGet package
Serilog.UI.ElasticSearchProvider Install-Package Serilog.UI.ElasticSearcProvider NuGet package

Then, add AddSerilogUi() to IServiceCollection in Startup.ConfigureServices method:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    // Register the serilog UI services
    services.AddSerilogUi(options => options.UseSqlServer("ConnectionString", "LogTableName"));

In the Startup.Configure method, enable the middleware for serving logs UI. Place a call to the UseSerilogUi middleware after authentication and authorization middlewares otherwise authentication may not work for you:

public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app, IWebHostEnvironment env)

    // Enable middleware to serve log-ui (HTML, JS, CSS, etc.).

    app.UseEndpoints(endpoints =>
            name: "default",
            pattern: "{controller=Home}/{action=Index}/{id?}");

Default url to view log page is http://<your-app>/serilog-ui. If you want to change this url path, just config route prefix:

app.UseSerilogUi(option => option.RoutePrefix = "logs");

Authorization configuration required

By default serilog-ui allows access to log page only for local requests. In order to give appropriate rights for production use, you need to configuring authorization. You can secure log page by allwoing specific users or roles to view logs:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    services.AddSerilogUi(options => options
        .EnableAuthorization(authOptions =>
            authOption.AuthenticationType = AuthenticationType.Jwt; // or AuthenticationType.Cookie
            authOptions.Usernames = new[] { "User1", "User2" };
            authOptions.Roles = new[] { "AdminRole" };
        .UseSqlServer(Configuration.GetConnectionString("DefaultConnection"), "LogTableName"));

Only User1 and User2 or users with AdminRole role can view logs. If you set AuthenticationType to Jwt, you can set jwt token and Authorization header will be added to the request and for Cookie just login into you website and no extra step is required.
