Core Triggers and Actions - Console Action

A Console Action is a simple action that prints data to either standard out (stdout) or standard error (stderr).

For example — to print some data to standard out, you can simply include the data to be generated in the “Message” property of the action.

If a Console Action contains the Message property “Hello World”, when the action executes as part of your workflow, you will see the following output printed to stdout.

Hello World

If you want to print your data to stderr, just set the “Standard Error” flag on the action.

Console Actions on Windows Services

When using Windows services, all Console Action output (to both stdout and stderr) is directed to the engine service log. By default, this log file is called engine-service.log.
