Write to SharePoint logs in SP Designer workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to write to the SharePoint logs in a Designer workflow? 

    Reason for question is that the logging activitiy in a workflow does not fire if the workflow teminates anywhere.  Finding bugs in a workflow would be helpful if logging was possible.  I have a workflow that writes to the workflow history in the first step.  Somewhere in the workflow, it throws a "Unknown Error" message.  (Not sure how an error can be thrown if it's unknown but that's another discussion).  Since the error is thrown somehwere in the workflow, the first step history write does not show.  Would like to write to the SharePoint logs for debugging purposes. 
    When looking into the SharePoint logs to find error information, the information provided in the trace is incorrect which makes finding a resolution even harder because I am researching bogus error messages.

    Pretty sure it's not possible but thought I would ask.

    Thanks in advance.
