Node: Job Log

Information about processed files is kept in a job log, regardless of whether the respective job succeeded or failed. This log can help you figure out the causes of errors and determine which input file was used to create which output file. Entries are stored in chronological order and may be filtered.

Information about jobs that ended in errors is also recorded in Failed Jobs. This node has no customizable settings.

Entries in the Job Log

Column Description
Files The files that have been processed.
Workflow The name of the workflow in which this job was created.
Processing Notes The first message from the list of error messages.
Date The job completion date and time.
Pages The number of processed pages.
Processing Time The time that elapsed from the moment the job processing is started to the moment it was completed.
Total Time The total time that elapsed from the moment the job entered the queue to the moment its processing was completed.
Low-Confidence Characters

The percentage of uncertain characters in the document.

Note. For failed jobs, the logged value can be smaller than the specified limit. This may happen because the job is discarded if the number of uncertain characters exceeds the limit at least in one document of the job.

The Files tab of the additional details pane contains a list of input files and their matching output files. Note that one input file may result in several output files (e.g. files with recognized data and XML files). For convenience, the input files and their corresponding output files are shown in a tabular format.

The Details tab of the additional details pane contains information about the job, including all of the errors and warnings that occurred during processing and the time that it took the program to complete the job (i.e. waiting time, processing time, and total time).
