Nothing to show



This module allows you to log your winston messages to any SQL Server database supported by node-sqlserver.


  1. Follow the steps in How to Access Windows Azure SQL Database from Node.js to get the node-sqlserver package installed.
  2. Run npm install winston-sqlserver.
  3. In the database you will use for logging, execute CreateLogTable.sql to create a table of the form necessary for this package.


var winston = require('winston');
winston.add(winston.transports.SQLServer, options);


This transport takes the following options:

  • connectionString: Connection string that this transport should use (default 'Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=winston').
  • table: Table name to log to (default 'dbo.NodeLogs').


Unit tests can be found in the test directory and executed with npm test. They are driven by mocha and should. The default settings assume SQL Express has been installed and CreateLogTable.sql has been run in a database called winston (connection string: 'Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=winston;Trusted_Connection=Yes;'). You can change this by editing the variables in test/test-config.js.
