Execution Logging

The Execution log is a record of the action steps or events executed in a workflow or service in Warewolf. Events are recorded in the sequence in which they occur and can be filtered by URL, user, execution time, execution start date, execution completed date, success or error.  You can see the result of an execution and re-run an execution using the same parameter values.

To access the Execution Logging, right click on the server name in which you want to access the server log files for and then click on Execution Logging in the context menu.

Your default browser will open my.warewolf.io/executionlogging/server=localhost. Depending on your security setting you might need to add in your user credentials. We strongly suggest you set your default browser to chrome for maximum performance. if Warewolf cannot connect to a server or an error occurs, it will automatically revert to your localhost.

You can filter your executions or workflows through various filtering options on the web page.

Filter by URL

You can search for an executed workflow, resource or service by name. By typing the name into the URL filter box a list will appear. In the example below we are searching for the Select and Apply workflow.

Filter by Status

You can filter by the status of an execution. If the execution is successful, the execution status will show Success and if it fails, it will show Error. This feature allows us to quickly eliminate the successful executions if we are searching for a failed execution and vice versa.

Filter by Start Time

If we know the date and time that the workflow or service was scheduled to run, we can filter using these to find our execution. If we click on start time, a calendar will appear where you can select the date and time.
