Python API and custom script scenario logs

JohnB Registered Posts: 32 ✭✭✭✭✭

Is there a way to get the log contents from the run of a scenario that is a custom script?

These do not appear in job logs so I can't do job.get_log()

    Hi John,

    What steps are you running in your custom script? The sample code you provided should work for a custom python scenario as well, provided that you're creating jobs through the scenario. Unfortunately, we don't provide scenario logs, so you won't be able to receive logs on operations that don't trigger jobs.

    Hi Corey,

    We are on version 8.0.3.

    If I'm running a scenario that has steps, I can do something like this:

    scenario = project.get_scenario("myscenario")
    run = scenario.run_and_wait()
    for step in run.get_details().steps:
    for job_id in step.job_ids:
    job = project.get_job(job_id)

    When the scenario is a custom script I don't see any jobs that I can get logs from.

    Hi Emma,

    The scenario is a custom python script.

    It's one of a set of tests we perform on new code envs that have libraries that interact with bespoke Python interfaces. These would be outputting messages using the Python logger at the very least - even simple print statements e.g.


    ..would not create a job so there is no log we can extract via the API.
