Hi!

Does anyone know how to capture standard output of task / job into some sort of log files? on "Main Settings" of "Edit Task", there seem to be an option of "Store standard output", and "Store standard error", but didn't state where the output and error are stored.

Anyone knows?

Thanks a lot!

You can use File Notification or File write Task after any other Task. There you can use Variables;

{TASK(PrevTask|StdOut)}

{TASK(PrevTask|StdErr)}

Henrik:

Thanks for the prompt response. I'm not familiar with those codes. I'm using the VisualCron Client 8.2.8, the graphical user interface. Is there a menu item somewhere that show me where the Stdout is dumped to?

I appreciate the help!

All values in VisualCron can be reached through "Variables". And in all fields of VisualCron you can enter Variables to pass data. There is the Variables window where you can find all existing Variables. I recommend the video tutorial  about Variables.

{TASK(PrevTask|StdOut)} , is it possible to show only the first 100 lines somehow?
We have a problem, we send {TASK(PrevTask|StdOut)} in an email and there are 1000 of lines, so I'd like to make it cut off after 100 lines.

You could truncate based on number of characters…

{STRING(Substring|abcdefg|0|4)}

yields abcd

So something like

{STRING(Substring|{TASK(PrevTask|StdOut)}|0|9999)}
