To capture failed process logs

We are looking for way to fetch failed deployment logs for specific time period using uDeploy API. It should fetch below details-
Application name, environment name, Requested date, Status (Failure or Success), Failed Child Step name, Reason for failure.

We know there is an API to fetch workTraceLogID to download zip file but challenge here is its downloading complete logs irrespective of success and failure and that too it downloads logs from all child steps whether success or failure.
As part of DevOps dashboard, we are trying to feed these data to splunk for our internal tracking.

    Hi Osman,

    Thanks for replying us.

    As part of monthly operating reports, we are fetching the failed deployment logs from uDeploy UI (Reports -> Deployment Details). However reports tab will not provide the RCA or name of the child step where deployment is failing. Currently we are going to each of the failure deployments and collecting logs from child failed steps which is very time taking process.

    As part of this effort, we tried to fetch failed logs using uDeploy API but it downloads complete zip file which has multiple trace.json files from each child step irrespective of success and failure.

    The requirement is to fetch below details alone from failed deployments.

    --> Application name, environment name, Requested date, Status (Failure or Success), Failed Child Step name, Reason for failure.

    Hence, could you please have a look on this requirement and update us.

    As the workTraceLog provides full details, it should be possible to parse the needed information out of it.

    Could you please add some use-cases, screenshots or mock-ups to better understand your requirements and why the provided functionality is not working for you.
