      Hide

      1)  Download attached jobs and transformations.  Edit the file locations as needed.

      2)  Run the wrapper_log_job.kjb multiple times.

       

      Expected:  Each object should have a log with it's activity.

       

      Actual:  One of three situations will happen:

      1) The main job and both the sub objects will create successful logs as expected.

      2)  The main job and one sub object will create successful logs, but one of the sub objects will only have an empty log file.

      3)  The main job will create successful logs, but both sub objects will have empty log files.

       

      KJB/KTRs, screenshot, and log examples are attached.

      Description

      When you have jobs that call other jobs and transformations and through the job/transformation entry you enable logging on the logging tab, PDI will not consistently produce correct results.

      It creates blank log files for sub objects more often than a log with the correct activity, but each run can produce different results.
