Apex Log Analyzer VSC Plugin

Those who work with Apex logs know, that this is not an easy task. Having Salesforce CPQ and Salesforce Billing on top of the standard cloud (well, really having any managed package with logs) makes the log review process even more complex, as we get tonnes of logs from the managed packages, that even though they are not readable for us, they just exist in the log file as you scroll through. However, just recently Financial Force released a plugin for Visual Studio Code to help analyse the logs.

Thanks to the plugin you can exactly tell what is happening for how long, just by looking at the diagram presented by the tool. With hover on the bars, you can identify the item responsible for a given CPQ/time utilisation.

Here is the link to the VSC plugin.

Reviewing logs is an important thing when you want to troubleshoot performance issues in CPQ, or when you try to fix the automation that you have built, but something is not working right.

I hope you’ll like the plugin!
