Log to console

The Log to console action node prints a custom message to the Logs panel of the Developer tools.


This action node is often used for debugging purposes in order to print a value from a data source or function.

If you want to log the contents of an object or data source to the console, you should use the function editor to turn it into a string. For example, return JSON.stringify(variableName);


A Log to console example is available in our Showroom. You can view the demo, as well as access the setup in Appfarm Create. Don't have access? Register.
