Instructions on turning up debug logging at the connector level for a connector managed by the CA IAM CS. This is to generate an additional endpoint specific JCS log other than the jcs_daily log.



Component: IDMGR


To turn up specific debug logging for a connector managed by the CA IAM CS, 2 steps are needed:

  1. Start the Provisioning Manager.
    Click the Endpoints task button.
    Select an endpoint type in the Object Type drop-down list box.
    Search for the endpoint for which you want to set logging.
    Right-click on the endpoint in the list view and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
    The endpoint property sheet for that endpoint appears.
    Click the Logging tab.
    Complete the Logging tab.
    Click Apply.

  2. Replace the contents of 'org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg' found in cs-home/etc/ with the contents of this file
    'org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg.verbose' and save it. This will generate the required endpoint specific JCS log. Once the logs are generated in the \CA\Identity Manager\Connector Server\jcs\logs, you can revert to original
    settings in 'org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg' (since performance is impacted by verbose logging)
