Quickly remove Clutter from vRO Logs


vRO provides great bit of logs out-of-the-box, but the problem is, it’s not aesthetically pleasing. Frankly, these long trials of data and time [2022-03-14 02:33:03.144 -04:00INFO] annoys me a lot. If you too don’t want that annoyance or you want to show these logs to someone in most tidiest way, or maybe you simply want to preserve an action results or workflow execution, then probably you can use this trick. Let’s see how I did it.

I think the simplest way would be to find a Regex that removes it all the clutter in one go.


  • After execution of a workflow or action, copy the logs and open Notepad++.
  • Press CTRL + H. It will open Replace Tab.
  • In Find what field copy the below mentioned RegEx and In Search Mode, enable Regular Expression and tick Wrap around.

for workflows



for actions

.+?(?=:)+.+?(?=:)+.+?(?=:)+:(00|30)+(INFO|WARNING|DEBUG|ERROR)+([^)]+)\)+( +?|\t)(?=(([^"]*"){2})*[^"]*$)
  • Click Replace All.

That’s it.
