Configuring Workflow Log File Information

Configuring Workflow Log File Information

You can configure workflow log information on the workflow Properties tab.
  1. Select the Properties tab of a workflow.
  2. Enter the following workflow log options:
    Option Name
    Description
    Write Backward Compatible Workflow Log File
    Writes workflow logs to a text log file. Select this option if you want to create a log file in addition to the binary log for the Log Events window.
    Workflow Log File Name
    Enter a file name or a file name and directory. You can use a service, service process, or user-defined workflow or worklet variable for the workflow log file name.
    The Integration Service appends this value to that entered in the Workflow Log File Directory field. For example, if you have $PMWorkflowLogDir\ in the Workflow Log File Directory field, enter “logname.txt” in the Workflow Log File Name field, the Integration Service writes logname.txt to the $PMWorkflowLogDir\ directory.
    Workflow Log File Directory
    Location for the workflow log file. By default, the Integration Service writes the log file in the process variable directory, $PMWorkflowLogDir.
    If you enter a full directory and file name in the Workflow Log File Name field, clear this field.
    Save Workflow Log By
    You can create workflow logs according to the following options:
    • By Runs. The Integration Service creates a designated number of workflow logs. Configure the number of workflow logs in the Save Workflow Log for These Runs option. The Integration Service does not archive binary logs.
    • By time stamp. The Integration Service creates a log for all workflows, appending a time stamp to each log. When you save workflow logs by time stamp, the Integration Service archives binary logs and workflow log files.
    You can also use the $PMWorkflowLogCount service variable to create the configured number of workflow logs for the Integration Service.
    Save Workflow Log for These Runs
    Number of historical workflow logs you want the Integration Service to create.
    The Integration Service creates the number of historical logs you specify, plus the most recent workflow log.
