One of my app using Read_logs permission which I added back in 2017 according to my git history. I am not sure what for I added this permission. That time i was using respectively Xamarin.Insights and hockeyapp and my git history has only changes related to those libraries. Now i am using Appcenter.
I went through appcenter crashes and events documentation but i couldn't find anything related to permissions in the documentation. Does Appcenter use Read_logs?
Or can anyone suggest if there is any library uses read_logs?

    I do not believe you need it. If you did it may add it for you automatically.
