A Log Viewer replacement for Umbraco 8

What is UmbLogExporter?

UmbLogExporter builds on the Log Viewer that ships with the Umbraco 8 Core adding options to export logs to a format of your choosing. It also tweaks the Log Viewer interface allowing you to change the log date range when searching.

The default export implementation takes logs recorded using the CompactJsonFormatter formatter that Umbraco installs with and outputs an Excel file using EPPlus.


Once installed, the Log Viewer node in the settings tree will be replaced with Log Viewer/Exporter.

You can export directly from the default page using the View/Export button groups next to each search. You can also export from the Search page using the Search/Export button group.

The new date range field in the search bar allows for changing the dates without messing with the querystring or returning the default page to change the date span.

Writing Your Own Exporters

The UmbLogExporter.Core project contains the ILogExportBuilder interface. The default implementation is DefaultLogExportBuilder which will give you a starting point for writing your own exporters.

Excel was a good option to ship with the project as most clients will be familiar with searching data using Excel. However, it could easily export to CSV, a database or a destination of your choosing.


Once you've forked the repo, open the src\UmbLogExporter.sln solution in Visual Studio, set the UmbLogExporter.Website project as the start up project and hit F5.

The Umbraco backoffice login details are:

Username: root

(Yes, it should be an email address... But we didn't want a dummy email address getting spammed with password reset requests...)

Password: testing1234


As 99.9% of the code in this project is based on the Log Viewer that ships with Umbraco 8 it would be rude not to credit the core team - thanks for all your hard work guys!
