Current
Last modified: March 26, 2020

Logging is enabled at the system or user level, either from System Settings or User Settings. When logging is enabled, the content of the log file will resemble the contents of the Results window each time a workflow is run, including all runs from the GUI, command line, or API. The log that is generated will be named "Alteryx_Log_*sequential#*.log" in UTF-16 format.

Example of a log file

Below is an example of a log file generated from a sample workflow found in the logging directory named Engine x64_Log_1304355770.log:
