Introduction

The JS7 - History view displays entries from the Order History and from the JS7 - Task History.

The Order History includes any output of jobs in a workflow that have been passed by an Order. Instead of checking individual log files of jobs the Order History view is available to display the execution history of all jobs in a workflow and any output created in the lifetime of that Order.

Order History View

This view displays orders sorted by descending date of JS7 - Order State Transitions.


Explanation:

  • The view displays the execution history including start time, end time etc. of the order and of individual jobs in the workflow.
  • The Order variables which the order was started with are displayed.
  • Filtering is enabled for order states and frequently used periods.
  • When clicking an entry in any column except the Workflow column then the Order Log View opens.
  • When clicking an individual job then the JS7 - Task History, chapter: Task Log View opens.
  • Note: Availability of Order History entries depends on the retention period specified with the JS7 - Cleanup Service.
