Can we implement the ability to specify the output directory for the log files generated during a silent install / upgrade?

Hi Vishal,

Thanks for submitting your suggestion. I've logged this for review by our Development Team and will keep this post updated with further information regarding whether this is chosen for our future road map.

In the meantime, note that the log will be output in the current working directory. By changing to the directory in which you want the file to generate, you can effectively come to this same solution in the current working conditions.

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

If user not provided any log file path as extra parameter in silent install then it should behave as default i.e log file in working directory from where we ran yellowfin jar.

Hi Vishal,

Thanks for the additional information. In my testing I've found that what you've described is currently the behavior of the silent installer. Are you finding different results?

Thanks,

Hi Ryan,

currently logs generated in working directory that is fine for now but in future if yellowfin implemented "Specify Log Output Directory" then it should behave like "If user not provided any log file path as extra parameter in silent install then it should behave as default i.e log file in working directory from where we ran yellowfin jar."

Just suggested this what I think of.


Thanks,
