Policy Log
Every Policy generates a log when it is running. The Client enables you to view both real-time log information as well as historic logs. When you are viewing a Policy in the Client, the Log and Log History windows will display the real-time and historic logs, respectively, relating to that Policy.
Note: It is recommended to use the Operator Console for real-time observation of Policy execution.
Real-time Log
The Log windows will display the real-time log of the Policy. The log displays when the Policy was started and the object that is currently running in the Policy will have the label "running" beside it. The log enables you to determine if there are any problems with specific objects in your Policy.
Historic Log
The Log History window displays all the previous executions of the Policy you have selected. The time that the Policy started and ended is displayed at the top of each log entry. The result of each object execution is displayed for each entry.
Double-click an object in the log to view the result of the execution of that object.
The Details dialog displays the Name, Type, Status, Start Time and End Time of the object. The Details dialog also enables you to browse the Published Data that was published by the object when it was executed. Use this information when troubleshooting problems with your Policy.
Click the button to view the details of the next object in the Policy and click the to view the details of the previous object.

Opalis Integration Server enables you to add entries for object-generated or common Published Data items to the Policy log and the Datastore, or to exclude them.
