The studio provides you with very comprehensive log files that maintain diagnostic information and record any errors that are encountered in the data profiling process. The error log view is the first place to look when a problem occurs while profiling data, since it will often contain details of what went wrong and how to fix it.

To display the error log view in the Studio, do one of the following:

  1. Either:

    • press the Alt+Shift+Q and then L shortcut keys, or,

    • select Window > Show View from the menu bar.

    The [Show View] dialog box opens.

  2. Expand the General folder and select Error Log.

  3. Click OK to close the dialog box.

    The Error Log view opens in the studio.

    Note

    The filter field at the top of the view enables you to do dynamic filtering, for example as you type your text in the field, the list will show only the logs that match the filter.

    You can use icons on the view toolbar to carry out different management options including exporting and importing the error log files.

    Each error log in the list is preceded by an icon that indicates the severity of the log: for errors, for warnings and for information.

  4. Double-click any of the error log files to open the [Event Detail] dialog box.

  5. If required, click the icon in the [Event Detail] dialog box to copy the event detail to the Clipboard and then paste it anywhere you like.
