Test Sequence Logging

Test Sequence Logs are stored per test sequence for each run. By default the logs are saved as XML but you can save your logs in HTML or in simple text format
The test sequence log file format was set to XML by default because it was felt that this format would provide the most structured way to analyse logging data with meaningful attributes, and with potential for future applications. For example it could be used to support logging in non-Roman text.

But of course XML is not the most readable format and it’s also quite greedy with disk space. Quite likely you would want to change the log format to simple text or maybe to HTML.

To change the log file format use the setting Log/File/fileDataFormat and choose one of xml, html or txt.
