writing LOG-file with WFA

hi guys,

 

i wanted wfa to write out a log as html file - i tried to achieve with PoSh through [command] | convertto-html "path2file" but it seems that the file won't be created.

the idea behind it: i wanted to write-out all before/after informations when the workflows is run per workflow - so there should be one file for e.g. all "volume_resize" workflows with information of how big was the volume before the workflow run and what size it has after the workflow ran.

 

thanks in advance

AJ

Re: writing LOG-file with WFA

Have you developed the commands on your own?

Or,

you are trying to get the output from the certified commands in HTML.

If you are writing the commands on your own, you can create a file and

write the file with HTML tags.

Sample command attached, written with WFA 3.0.

 

Regards

ConvertTo-Html doesn't create any file for you, it just formats the output in HTML tags.  Use it like below:

 

<My-Command> |ConvertTo-Html|Set-Content C:\log.html

 

If you want better control, select objects in your output for the specific tags in your log.html. Read some details here : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee156817.aspx

 

And you can use this as is into WFA commands too. It will behave just the same.
