Hi Gajanan, Currently we don't have step by step debugging available in workato. You go with Monitor block and see the error message if any failures inside recipe.

use log message or look up table to see the loop data or any specific data.

Hi Gajanan,


For each recipe job you can see the actual call flow path as well as the input and output at every step. If the recipe job failed - you can see the call path till the error step and the input, output at every step and the error at the error step. Here is the link to the documentation section for troubleshooting: https://docs.workato.com/troubleshooting.html#troubleshooting

On top of that, I've learned that for a failed job, once you repeat it, you can then select the step you'd like more information and go to "Debug" tab.


If available, the Network Trace will include all API calls during that step, with the result, header, request and response payloads.

Very helpful, specially if you're using a connector where the input for that action is not necessarily the actual payload that will be used in the API call.


I wish that this Debug information would have been available by default at the very step in which a job failed. Some times, it's just not feasible to repeat a job, depending on how your recipe is designed and particularly if that's in a Production environment.

I heard in the past that there is an enhancement coming so you can view job data from inside loops without having the hassle of setting up logging. This is sorely needed but I don't know if it's still coming or when. This is something I've been pushing for a long time.
