Logging

Clever Handheld for Warehousing logs all requests that are made by devices into the Business Central web service along with all the corresponding data.

This data is useful for reporting or troubleshooting - but accumulates quickly. It is recommended that the Log and Log Data tables are cleared down periodically to reduce the Business Central database size.

The Handheld Setup card page has a Keep Logs For field to determine the time period that log records should be kept for. Enter a date formula into this field e.g. 14D for 14 days.

Note: from v7.3.3 of Clever Handheld Framework log records are no longer automatically deleted. This change was to improve the performance of device calls and allow the deletion of records to be offloaded to the job queue.

Report 9059249 (Clear Handheld Log) should be run periodically on the job queue (ideally once a day at a time when Handheld users are not working in the system). This report will delete Handheld Log and Log Data records that are older than time specified by the Keep Logs For field set in Handheld Setup.
