My WF has selected to record messages in the NintexWorkflowHistory. I see items in NintexWorkflowHistory, but I can not find any of the "Log in History List" I created...Where do I find these I want to troubleshoot an error that is occurring so I placed Log In History List thru-out the WF, but I do not see these logs ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
if you select the workflow status column on the item you should see it.
or select the item, workflows, choose the workflow and you should see it there?
if you miss some specific log entries in the history list the most common cause would be that the logging action is hidden from workflow status. If an action is hidden from workflow status also it's logs will be hidden.
Could you make sure that the action is not hidden from workflow status directly and it's also not in a hidden container action?
If all actions are not hidden (and therefore should be visible when you start the workflow) could it be that the workflow is logging to a different history list?
To check if its hidden from workflow status just open the configuration of your action, open the common tab. There you'll find a checkbox "hidden from workflowstatus".
If your action is nested in another action (action group, condition or whatever) check its confiugration too as all nested action will be hidden from workflow status, if the action above does so.
OK, because I think perhaps your question and what the others are addressing aren't the same issue. If you are using the "Log to History" action, then you will see this text output into the Workflow History and not in a task list.
