Log action in integration activity


In a workflow in the User Application Integration Activity you can add "Log" actions that are supposed to log to either "System Output", "System Log" or "User Log".

But when I run my workflow I can't see that the log activity does anything.

I have to revert to using functions and calling to get anything logged to the Tomcat log.

Does anybody know if this is supposed to work or not?

Using IDM 4.7.3 AE.

I would check your logging settings.  With the default logging settings, which has many items set to "INFO", you should see your workflow as it moves from step to step in the catalina.out file for tomcat.  A log activity will be one of those transitions, it'll show moving to that activity, then will write in that file whatever you put there.

Also, if you put a value in the "comment" field, it will show up within the UI if you look at the history of that workflow.  You will have to toggle the pulldown menu to show "system" comments, but it should show up there as well.

Finally, if you check the "audit" option, it'll send that information over to the Sentinel for IGA service.  While I don't believe the OOTB reports show it, you could write one that leverages those data points if needed.
