Starting at SCT Release 10.0, the Upgrade Log is renamed to Archive Log and features a redesigned table format to include the results of all ActionQ archive database activities (such as upload, download, and sync). The Archive Log Viewer in SCT displays log messages directly correlated to the ActionQ operations, and content is displayed in types that are selected from the type options (Information, Warning, or Error). A valid time range is selected in the Date Range area and can be reset by pressing the Reset button. Available archives can be selected in the Archives area.

The entries are displayed in table format with type, date, archive, version, messages, source column, and reference. Starting at Release 10.0, the Reference resource column has been added to the Archive Log providing the fully qualified reference (FQR) for the logged operational device. You can now view similar code upload and download information in the Archive Log Viewer as you can in the NAE/NIE Update Tool. Warning entries are highlighted in yellow, and errors are highlighted in red.

Note: Code-specific entries such as warnings or errors are not fully language translated and appear in partial English.

To sort the rows in ascending or descending order, click the column headings. Highlight and double-click an entry to bring up the View Archive Log Entry dialog box. Navigational arrows allow you to navigate through entries forward and backward and from beginning to end.

Click the Copy button to copy one or more selected entries; copied entries can be pasted into Excel, WordPad, or other similar application. Click the Purge button to delete selected entries in the archive log. Before purging entries, a dialog box appears warning you that this option clears all entries in the archive log and cannot be undone.

To refresh the archive log view, right-click the panel header and click Refresh, or click the Action menu and click Refresh. Refresh also expands any columns that are not accommodating the text within.

Note: The information displayed in the Archive Log Viewer can be copied from the local device at the location: ProgramData\Johnson Controls\MetasysIII\SQLData\ArchUpgradeLogEntries.txt.
