Dear support,

I'm working in a DataCenter using A9 and tens of Automate task runs here everyday.

For some of them, we've enabled the extended logging in a separate file.

But we are facing difficulties to manage clean-up of the old logs files because they are appended each time.

My wish would be to have the possibility to have logs generated in a new file at each execution or each day. This will allow me to remove the obsololete logs easily.

Please advice.

Hello Mehdi,

You could use a task that's on a schedule trigger that runs at 15 minutes prior to midnight every night in the background that copies the extended task log to another location with a date/time stamp as part of the amended filename.
Try the attached AML code and let us know how it works for you.
It's an example and functional. Modify the path as needed.

Task Steps: (Right click, Select All, Copy to copy to the clipboard. Steps can then be pasted into the AutoMate Task Builder)
