Liquid UI - WS Reference Library

ws_


Purpose

With '/ws_' command, you need to couple with a number of options to perform several very useful tasks. In this section, we will cover each of the variations that can be formed using the 'ws_' command and demonstrate how each is utilized. These ws_ commands can be executed directly from the transaction box. The available commands are as follows:

/ws_log

Creates a log at runtime.

WS users can create logs at any time by using the /ws_log command in the transaction field in SAP. All log files are saved in .TXT format. Log files are created by default in the following directory:

  • C:\Users\[user.name]\Liquid UI Log\

The file name will be in the following format:

  • WS_MMDDYY_HHMMSS_computerName_userFirstName.userLastName_.log

The HHMMSS section in the file name is defined as follows:

  • HH: Hours
  • MM: Minutes
  • SS: Seconds

Options

The /ws_log command does not take any options.

Example

This example explains how to turn the logging functionality on and off.

To turn the logging on, enter the following in the transaction field:

/ws_log=true

To turn the logging off, please type the following into the transaction field:

/ws_log=false

When you stop and when you start WS logging, the log file location will display in the status bar at the bottom of SAP GUI as shown in the following example:
