Log Inside Dataweave


Use log function to help with debugging DataWeave scripts. A Mule app outputs the results through the DefaultLoggingService, which you can see in the Studio console. Let’s see how we can log inside the dataweave.

I have used the below dataweave expression to log the message from inside the Dataweave Transformation


  "status": "success",
  "data": [
      "id": 1,
      "employee_name": "Tiger Nixon",
      "employee_salary": 320800,
      "employee_age": 61,
      "profile_image": ""


Dataweave Expression:

%dw 2.0
output application/java

log(" Current Time Stamp ",now())
log("Error"," Error From Dataweave ")
log(" Employee Id Is ",payload.data[0].id)

Output (You can see on anypoint console),all the logs are printed as shown below:

INFO 2020-04-10 19:58:18,372 [[MuleRuntime].cpuIntensive.06: [logging].loggingFlow.CPU_INTENSIVE @206c4a2a] [event: 85a17471-7b37-11ea-a90d-040e3cd1eac7] org.mule.weave.v2.model.service.DefaultLoggingService$:
