User Log

User Log

The user log contains custom messages that you configure about failures of components in a Script.
The Data Processor transformation writes messages to the user log when you run a Script from the
Data Viewer
view and when you run it in a mapping.
When a Script component has the
on_fail
property, you can configure it to write a message to the user log when it fails. In the Script, set the
on_fail
property to one of the following values:
  • LogInfo
  • LogWarning
  • LogError
Each run of the Script produces a new user log. The user log file name contains the transformation name with a unique GUID:
<Transformation_Name>_<GUID>.log
For example,
CalculateValue_Aa93a9d14-a01f-442a-b9cb-c9ba5541b538.log
On a Windows machine, you can find the user log in the following directory:
c:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Informatica\DataTransformation\UserLogs
On a Linux or UNIX machine, you can find the user log for the root user in the following directory:
/<Installation_Directory>/DataTransformation/UserLogs
On a Linux or UNIX machine, you can find the user log for a non-root user in the following directory:
home/<Installation_Dirctory>/DataTransformation/UserLogs
