Echo Test Widget

Echo Test Widget

The Echo Test widget is provided for troubleshooting purposes, and would not usually be used as part of a production workflow. The Echo Test widget writes the current value of all workflow variables and any data entered in the other widget properties to the file <drive>:WindowsTempBambooSolutionsConductorEchoWidgetBamboo.Conductor_Echo_%workflowinstanceID%.log.

If there is an e-mail address in the Email Trace To property, the widget will send the information contained in this file to the e-mail recipient.
