New Contributor


Hello,


The goal of this post is to simplify the reading of the MS Teams Logs with a tool to make them more readable by the human eye

For example, reading the logs generated by MS Teams using the notepad is very difficult

here is when I recommend to use the open-source tool called LogExpert

to follow this tutorial we need to have already installed a Log Reader Software called LogExpert, you can find the installation instructions in this link https://github.com/zarunbal/LogExpert

 

 


Inside LogExpert we need to configure it to recognize the ms teams log information as separated columns and also style it with your favourite colours

 


Columns configuration

Options -> Columnizer

Choose a Columnizer (Choose one of the RegexX default profiles)

Click on Config

Inside the Regex text field insert the following regular expression:

Simple Regex:

 

 

 

([Sun|Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat]{3,}[\s][Jan|Feb|Mar|Apr|May|Jun|Jul|Aug|Sep|Oct|Nov|Dec]{3,}[\s][0-9]{2,}[\s][0-9]{4,}[\s][0-9]{2,}(?::[0-9]{2,}(?::[0-9]{2,})[\s]))(GMT[\+|-][0-1][0-9]{3})?[\s]\((.*)\)[\s](<[0-9]+>[\s])(--\s[a-z]+\s--[\s])(.*)

 

 

 

 

The same but enhanced and with headers.

 

 

 

(?<Date>[Sun|Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat]{3,}[\s][Jan|Feb|Mar|Apr|May|Jun|Jul|Aug|Sep|Oct|Nov|Dec]{3,}[\s][0-9]{2,}[\s][0-9]{4,})[\s](?<Time>[0-9]{2,}(?::[0-9]{2,}(?::[0-9]{2,})))[\s](?<Timezone>GMT[\+|-][0-1][0-9]{3}?[\s]\(.*\))[\s](?<Thread><[0-9]+>)[\s](?<Level>--\s[a-z]+\s--[\s])(?<Message>.*)
