I am using Sitecore 8.1 update 1. I wanted to check if there is a way by which I can get a list of skipped items during publishing process? I have come across the Sitecore module that does it but I am not allowed to install any modules at this time.

Hence I was wondering if there is any way I can check the list of skipped items during publishing without installing any modules!


What is your logger level set to? you can change it to Debug and that should show the ID of the items being skipped. This should reflect on the logs the IDs of the items. In the Sitecore.config change to Debug as in:

<logger name="Sitecore.Diagnostics.Publishing" additivity="false"> <level value="INFO" /> <appender-ref ref="PublishingLogFileAppender" /> </logger>
  • Tried that but didn't work. I checked publishing logs as well as normal logs. Thanks for the pointer though! Jan 31 '17 at 19:30
