    • Article Type: General

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Enable and export the OPAC search log for WebVoyage

    The OPAC search log for WebVoyage is disabled by default. To enable logging:
    1. On the Voyager server, open voyager.ini in a text editor. This file is located at: "/m1/voyager/xxxdb/ini/"
    2. Locate the line that begins with "LOGSEARCH=" and set the value to "Y".
    3. Save and close the file.

    To export the OPAC search log:
    1. On the Voyager server, navigate to: "/m1/voyager/xxxdb/sbin".
    2. Run Popacjob
    3. Select option 1: "Opac Search Log Export"
    4. Input a date range to export using the format: "yyyy-mm-dd:yyyy-mm-dd'
    5. The log will be named opsrchlgexport.dat and can be found at: /m1/voyager/xxxdb/rpt

    Additional Information

    No OPAC search logging happens until you set LOGSEARCH=Y. Only searches conducted from that point forward will be logged.
