Viewing the User Log

Viewing the User Log

The user log is an ASCII text file. On Windows platforms, the default location of the user log is:
c:\Informatica\DataTransformation\UserLogs
On UNIX platforms, the default location is:
<INSTALL_DIR>/UserLogs
By default, each execution of a transformation generates a user log having a unique name:
<service_name>+<unique_string>.log
A transformation can set the user-log location at runtime by using
SetValue
actions to assign the following system variables. Set the phase property of
SetValue
to
initial
. Ensure that
SetValue
runs before any component that writes to the user log.
Variable
Description
VarServiceInfo
>
StandardError
>
StandardErrorDir
Directory path of the user log.
VarServiceInfo
>
StandardError
>
StandardErrorName
File name of the user log.
In the following example, a
SetValue
action sets the user-log directory to
c:\mydirectory
.
level 1 UsrLog = SetValue << level 2 cleared checkbox disabled level 2 cleared checkbox optional level 2 quote = "c:\mydirectory" level 2 data_holder = $VarServiceInfo/*s/StandardError/*s/StandardErrorDir level 2 name = "" level 2 remark = "" level 2 on_fail = ... level 2 transformers = []
