You can save the contents of a Notification Log view. The information is stored locally as an ASCII file. Each row of information is saved as a separate line of text in the file. The resulting file can be imported into other applications such as a spreadsheet program or printed.

To save notification information, in a Notification Log Console, select Log > Save log contents to file or right-click the view title and select Save Log Contents to File from the shortcut menu.

In the Save log contents to file dialog box, you can choose format settings and a location for the file.

The Save log contents to file dialog box is divided into four sections and a Save location field:

  • Field delimiter — Separates each field within a line using a tab character or a user-specified character such as vertical bar (|). To specify a custom delimiter, click the Use custom delimiter option and specify the character; tab is the default.

  • Column headers — Includes column headers as the first line. To exclude the headers, clear the Include column headers checkbox.

  • Columns to include — Includes columns that are visible, which is the default, or all columns.

  • Notifications to include — Includes all notification rows, which is the default, or only selected rows.

  • Save location — Specify a directory path and filename, including the file extension (.txt). If you do not specify a path, the file is saved locally to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/logs directory by default. Or, you can click Browse and choose a location in the Select filename dialog box.

    Click OK or Apply to create the text file. If the file already exists, its contents are overwritten.
