Log file cleaner

Log file cleaner

Often with the creation of diagnostic log files, Pega Robot Runtime™ captures personal and confidential information during a solution run. Because of this, you should clean the log file of any information of this type to ensure or follow company confidentiality policies.

Pega Robot Studio™ provides a Log File Cleaner utility to remove personal or account-sensitive data from the log files quickly. Pega recommends that you run the Log File Cleaner utility before sending any log files to Pega Support. You may also run the log file prior to your own debugging and issue resolution if company or department requirements state to do so.

You can use the Log File Cleaner utility with the diagnostic log files generated from Pega Robot Studio, Pega Robot Runtime, Supertrace, and dump files. The utility examines each line in the log file and either masks or removes the data elements you specify, such as Social Security numbers. You can select to mask or remove on the data elements from a line, or you can mask or remove the entire line.


The Log File Cleaner utility is not part of Pega Robot Studio installation. In the Related Content section, click the Pega Robotic Log File cleaner link to download the cleaner utility zip file. No installation is required. Unzip the files to a folder location of your choice and run the executable file: OpenSpanLogFileCleaner.exe.
