Capturing Script Errors and Warnings

To log any custom script information into step details and execution reports, make sure to use the Write-Host cmdlet in the script. To indicate errors and warnings occurred during script execution and to pass this data to Orchestrator, make sure to use the Write-Error and Write-Warning cmdlets in the script. This will post script output in the Orchestrator UI, and also in Plan Execution and DataLab Test reports.

If no errors and warnings occur during script execution, Orchestrator will report the Success execution state. Otherwise, in case a number of warnings and errors occurs, Orchestrator will report the worst state.


For a script that runs inside the guest OS of a machine included in a cloud plan, the Write-Warning cmdlet is not supported.
