Process Logs

Process logs are used to view information about executed processes, including their start and end dates and times, duration, and the results of the execution.

User can view the Logs on the Logs list. The records in the log grid are editable, and the unnecessary log records can be deleted.

Currently running processes can be canceled by clicking the Cancel button.
