Sharepoint 2007 Workflows Logs

If you have problems in Workflows, you can activate Workflows logs to see which activities are generating errors.

You should do this in two places, one in your SharePoint portal’s web.config file, and also for owstimer process.

For owstimer, you should go to 12\bin folder and create a new file “owstimer.exe.config” with the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 

<configuration>

  <system.diagnostics>

    <sources>

      <source name="System.Workflow.Runtime" >

        <listeners>

          <add name = "System.Workflow"/>

        </listeners>

      </source>

      <source name="System.Workflow.Runtime.Hosting">

        <listeners>

          <add name="System.Workflow"/>

        </listeners>

      </source>

      <source name="System.Workflow.Activities">

        <listeners>

          <add name="System.Workflow"/>

        </listeners>

      </source>

    </sources>

    <sharedListeners>

      <add name="System.Workflow"

           type="System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener"

           initializeData="c:\tracing\WFTrace.log"

           traceOutputOptions="DateTime,ProcessId"/>

    </sharedListeners>

    <switches>

      <add name="System.Workflow.LogToTraceListeners" value="1"/>

      <add name="System.Workflow.Runtime" value="All" />

      <add name="System.Workflow.Runtime.Hosting" value="All" />

      <add name="System.Workflow.Runtime.Tracking" value="All" />

      <add name="System.Workflow.Activities" value="All" />

      <add name="System.Workflow.Activities.Rules" value="All" />

    </switches>

  </system.diagnostics>

</configuration>

For your portal’s web.config file you should copy the system.diagnostics section.
