Email Log Writer


The e-mail logger can be used to send log entries to a specified e-mail address.

Sent emails will contain the message of individual logs as the email message, with information about the source and severity in the subject heading.


Use of this logger is encouraged in conjunction with a log filter in order to reduce the number of e-mails sent, as UNIFYBroker can create a lot of logging information.


The email log writer requires the following by way of configuration:

Hi guys, is there any documentation for the log filter mentioned here?

Hi Adrian,

The 'log filter' referenced in the considerations above refers to the incoming filters available on a configured log writer, such as logging level and severity. You can see the details of those here: Logging / UNIFYBroker knowledge / UNIFY Solutions

Thanks for the clarification.
