  • Publication number: 20190205129
    Abstract: A management system constructs management information indicating that log chunks and issue chunks extracted from a first system managing log information and issue information output by a process related to a first team for a program to be developed are linked. The management system searches, from the management information, a log message group compatible with a designated log message group that is one or more log messages related to the issue by log pattern matching using the designated log message group in a case of receiving an inquiry with which the designated log message group is associated from the second system. The management system displays, on the second system, a response containing a handling method represented by handling method information corresponding to the found log message group.
