Thread: Write to Log Step

    Smile Write to Log Step

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering If I could pass the Log subject (Job - write to log step) description to an email subject, the same with comments, to email message comments.

    Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Ben

    Smile Write to Log Step

    Sven,

    What I want to do is define an specific Log Description -using the Write to log step- I have several descriptions in different steps.

    Then, attach that description to an EMAIL job automatically -passing the description- so the email will have a subject that changes once in a while.

    Any ideas? Copy and paste is an alternative, but kettle goes much further don't you think.

    Regards,

    Ben

    PDI is not 1 big application, the steps run "independently" so it's not that easy to just add information from 1 step to another (besides flow of rows): 1 step is not aware of the others.

    You could use variables but that will probably take you in too complex situations to set up.

    Copy and past ;-)

    Regards,
    Sven

    Ypu'de probably be better off looking at creating an xaction to load off your transformation and send the email.
