Storing your Document Output Log in Azure Blob Storage

Document Output logs and stores all emails and XML files that are sent through the solution. As default, the log is stored directly in the database in both the on-premises and the cloud version. However, it's also possible to export the log to Azure Blob Storage to free up database storage.

To export the Document Output log to Azure Blob Storage, follow these steps:

  1. Choose the Search icon, enter Document Output Setup, and then choose the related link.
  2. In the Email Log FastTab, enter the Azure Storage Account Name, the Azure Blob Container Name, and the Azure Storage Account Key.
  3. Change Log Storage Type to Azure Blob Storage.

The existing log is immediately transferred to the selected Azure storage. If the transfer fails, it can be reverted by setting Log Storage Type to Database or (if possible) File System.


As standard, an email job called Delete-Log is created, but not enabled, with the standard setup of Document Output. This can limit the size of the Document Output log but can, at the same time, also violate local legislation concerning email logging, so be sure to look into that before enabling the Delete-Log email job.
