It would be very helpful to have a less verbose (non-xml) logging option. A log with logon/logoff, commands, what files have been moved, and any failures and close/exit.

I do not think I like an idea of having third log file format.

That's what it is.

Is it possible some form of non xml simple logging could be added?

XML can be converted to anything you like easily. E.g. using XSLT.

Feature Request

The verbosity of the logging really does make it hard to use. It would be nice if upon error the log dumped all these details but with success was more succinct, for example just listing the open/close and files transferred. It reads like a debug log. Is it possible some form of non xml simple logging could be added?

A follow-up question about logging to a file. At the following page...

https://winscp.net/eng/docs/logging

... it says the following:

"Text log: Events are logged in unstructured form with configurable level of verbosity."

How do I configure the level of verbosity?

Thanks

Re: How to make /log option less verbose?

Try using XML logging.

How to make /log option less verbose?

Hello,

I am using WinSCP.exe in an NT shell script, and it is working nicely. I use the "/log=C:\MyLogFile.log" option. The problem is that WinSCP provides "too much information" (as they say in America!).

Is there a way to specify that the logs be less verbose?

Thanks in advance.
