WebClient developers know how useful the log file is for debugging and for tracking errors, but did you know that you can send your own messages to the log file from your CA Plex action diagram?

This technique can be used to provide an insight on what happens ‘behind the scenes’ without affecting the end user.  Note that this is only for Java client or server functions.

To log a message to the log file:

  1. Create a new JAVA source code object, e.g. “Send WebClient Log Message”, and provide a parameter field:
    *Message Text.
  2. Add the following source:import com.adcaustin.webplex.WebPlexLog;
  3. Create an API Call to your new source code object, and pass in your message text.
