You can log information in any kind of Orchestrator script, for example workflow, policy, or action. This information has types and levels. The type can be either persistent or non-persistent. The level can be DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, TRACE, and FATAL.

Persistent Logs

Persistent logs (server logs) track past workflow run logs and are stored in the Orchestrator database. To view server logs, you must select a workflow, a completed workflow run, or a policy and click the Events tab in the Orchestrator client.

Non-Persistent Logs

When you use a non-persistent log (system log) to create scripts, the Orchestrator server notifies all running Orchestrator applications about this log, but this information is not stored in the database. When the application is restarted, the log information is lost. Non-persistent logs are used for debugging purposes and for live information. To view system logs, you must select a completed workflow run in the Orchestrator client and click Logs on the Schema tab.
