Feature Request- allow real time access to running workflow log files

Highlighted

Good Day

 

We need a way to read a workflow log file while the workflow is running .. we want to peek inside the log file to see what is happening in the workflow, especially for the  case when the workflow seems to be "hung". This would be an invaluable troubleshooting tool.

 

Currently these worklfow log files are locked by Windows and are inaccessible by all but unapproved 3rd part utilities .. if at all.

 

Often these logs disappear if the workflow needs to be deleted in order to save the environment

 

It is noted that the service logs do not exhibit this behavior, so the request is to 

1) allow the running workflow logs to have the same behavior as the service logs

2) provide a work around to allow reading of the running workflow logs 

3) ?????

 

Thank you for thinking about this
