Creating Reports in Connect-IT

Creating Reports in Connect-IT

Creating Reports in Connect-IT

I have been playing around with Connect-IT for a day and I can't find any option to create a report with the errors encountered at run time.

There is a log file but it doesn't tell you much about where the error occur from the input file.  

On the Connect-IT GUI, it has a very detail document log on the right side listing all the Elements and Values in a XML format.  Connect-IT gave me the option to copy/open the XML document but it only for the selected error record.

My question is, is there a way to get Connect-IT to generate those XML reports?  It would of been nice if it was an out of box feature.

I would like to make a report of the error and give it to the end-user so they could correct their mistakes.


RE: Creating Reports in Connect-IT

Do you mean a processing report?

It should show up as a document when in the mapping engine element.  I am not 100% sure how to use it but if you email me direct I can put you in contact with some one who does.....

RE: Creating Reports in Connect-IT


I actually got something working now.  I wrote my own script in Connect-IT to write the error to the log file.

RE: Creating Reports in Connect-IT


Is there a chance that connect.it can email the error response to a designated email address?!



RE: Creating Reports in Connect-IT


I don't think it can but i could be wrong.  I had to write a dos batch job that would scan for the errors in the log file then reproduce a formatted log file and then email it to an email address.

Connect-It will add the .dat .log and .idx extension to the three files generated (for example: C:\tmp\test\Workorders.log, C:\tmp\test\Workorders.idx, and C:\tmp\test\Workorders.dat).
Run the scenario. The 3 files mentioned above will be created.

Click one time on the source or target connector that contains the rejected document.
Click on the Document Log tab.
Right click on the rejected document
Select Copy this XML document.
Paste this document into a text file.

Note: When done, compress all the files collected above using a program like WinZip. This will make the set of files smaller and easier to send.
