Now that you have played around with our platform and automated your business processes, it's time to automate yourself! Here are a few tips and tricks you can do with our logs.
Shift + Click
Got lost figuring out which log relates to which step? You can 'Shift + Click' to quickly bring up the connector's properties panel from the debug log.
Logs not updating
If you ever encounter a situation where your debug log is stuck or hasn't updated, you can refresh the page by switching between the 'Build' panel and the 'Debug' panel (It's much faster than reloading the whole webpage)
Replay Callable Workflows
If your workflow relies on other callable workflows then you CAN replay 'fire and forget' operations but CAN'T replay 'fire and response' ones, since they rely on a response (obviously...)
Searching with raw text
Need to find a specific record ID? Our search field allows you to search for raw text values
Searching for specific steps
If you ever find yourself wondering what happened exactly at a certain step, you can filter through specific runs and instances of the workflow in the debug logs. For example, you can search for a failed step within a failed run!
Viewing preceding and subsequent logs steps
Sometimes you want to know what happened in the steps which came soon before or after the step you're searching for. You can click on the arrows on a step to find the immediately preceding or subsequent steps.
Searching through a large volume of logs
Is your workflow prolific? Feeling overwhelmed by logs? You can add before and after search conditions to make your results easier to find, and improve search retrieval speeds. For example, the following 3 conditions would be combined to limit the number of logs searched where the input of step slack-1 had a field called "username" populated by "Tray.io"
- before > 2021-04-14T08:30:53.647Z
- after > 2021-04-15T08:30:53.647Z
- input > step:slack-1 > field:username > Tray.io
For the long term, you should also consider refactoring your workflow to take advantage of callables.
You can pause the steps (left) and data (right) panels. Very helpful when your workflow has lots of data flowing in. To start things flowing again, just hit "Resume".
