How to import exercise1.txt of the ProM tutorial

Hi, I am new to the ProM world. I have come across to the example log files used in ProM 6 exercises tutorial.
Would anyone please tell me how can I import/convert the exercise1.txt into ProM as an .xes file ?

This is how the exercise1.txt looks like:
1x Case1 A B C D
1x Case2 A C B D
1x Case3 A E D
Is there any plug-in to do the conversion job? Or, do I need to map the values somehow ?

I actually have a similar real-life log file which I need to import into ProM.
Any pointer will be appreciated. Thank you.


  • Dear Mozaher,

    You are referring to exercise1.txt, which displays the content of the event log in a 'human readable' way, to give you an idea of the contents.
    Please use exercise1.xes to load the event log into ProM and analyse the event log there.

    Hope this helps!
