Logs not occuring in correct order

Scenario: I have noticed that logs do not always appear in the output panel in the same order as they are in a sequence.

Steps to reproduce: Run attached xaml multiple times. Notice that the logs does not always sort the same way in UIpath studio Output panel.

Current Behavior: Order of output panel logs changes from run to run

Expected Behavior: Always same order as sequence

Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version: 2017.1.6522

Last stable behavior: not known
Last stable version:not known
OS Version: Windows 10 Build 16299.64
Others if Relevant: Attached example log LogErrorDemo.xaml (6.4 KB)

Hi @tsl,

I couldn’t reproduce the issue using the workflow you have shared.
I tried to run it 5-6 times. Logs were in order.

Hi Rahamat

Thanks for looking at my issue. I attached a gif showing how i do it, and how it fails. Notice the log in the output panel. I have checked my log file for the corresponding session, and in the file they show in the correct order. So to clarify: the issue is only in the output panel

Hi,

I have checked output panel. Messages were in order.

Similar issue was happening with older versions (~ early 2016.1 IIRC), which as far as I know was fixed.
This could be a regression, or an edge case that was not covered.

@ovi ?

Same studio version (2017.1.6522), and same issue in my environment.
It’s also disordered in Orchestrator.

Output to a file

could you tell me how? I have severals workflows and a lot of writeline that I put on the way when I was developing …so now my project grow more than I expected …I know that in replace of every writeline I could to write a file but I don’t wanna change everything in this point …so …is not allowed to copy all the output panel now? or there are another way to do this?

Logging with Write Line or Log message is not recomended for big chunks of data strings, there is a limit on what Studio’s Output can handle. So, logging to a file, text, csv, xlsx etc is the way to go, even for debbuging purpouses.

I see …thank you
