If I have a log file with timestamps in it, but no date, is there a way to extract date from the log file name and assign it?

Hi,

I have a logfile that has timestamps in it, but no date. The name of the logfile has a date - is there anyway to assign the date from the file? I know it would automatically post today's date, but sometimes these files show up late, so I'd like to extract it.

Format:

ORS_RTP_Node1_BK.20150107_133125_493.log

Yes, it can be done.

Check out the discussion and documentation regarding using datetime.xml to do this:

(there is some bad formatting on the config code but you should get the idea)
