Logs

Overview


The "Logs" tab allows a user to view the logs which are generated based on workflow execution.

The Logs tab

About the Task

On this screen, users are able to view and filter the logs for previously executed workflows. 

Users can search for a log based on the name of a workflow ("Flow"), a specific time period ("Date"), and also whether the execution of the workflow was successful or not ("Success").

To view the details of a log, users can click anywhere on the row of the workflow execution, which will load a pop-up window. 

The pop-up window has the following information:

  • Flow - This is the name of the workflow in the system.

  • Executed by - This is the name of the user in the system who executed the workflow.

  • Time started - This is the time the workflow execution was started at.

  • Time ended - This is the time the workflow execution ended at.

  • URI - A unique string of characters that identifies the workflow. On the right, there is an icon that allows for copying the information.

  • Log - This is a unique hash for this particular log, which can be referenced in Pliant or another logging platform. On the right, there is an icon that allows for copying the information.

  • "Formatted" and "Raw" - These tabs tell the same information, as they provide the user with different ways to view the output. On the right side, there is the ability to copy what is on the screen depending on the tab the user has selected, "Formatted" or "Raw".

Logs are typically stored on the Pliant system for approximately seven days.
