Issue/Introduction

To change logging level, permanently, in Identity Manager, we need to modify the standalone XML and add new logger categories.

In vApp, config user has not got the right permissions to modify the relevant XML (ca-standalone-full-ha.xml) , so the way to modify it is done by launching jboss-cli.sh and setting the required category level.

Environment

Identity Suite 14.x

Resolution

Following the steps detailed in the official JBoss manual (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_jboss_enterprise_application_platform/6.4/html/administration_and_configuration_guide/sect-logging_configuration_in_the_cli) in order for us set a new logger for a certain category, the following commands are to be executed:

Once triggered jboss-cli.sh (you should have a management user defined already, if not use sudo add-user.sh)

When connected (using connect) the following 3 commands should be triggered, in the following order:

/subsystem=logging/logger=<CATEGORY>:add
/subsystem=logging/logger=<CATEGORY>:write-attribute(name="level", value="<LEVEL>") 
/subsystem=logging/logger=<CATEGORY>:read-resource

Once done, reload the changes
:reload

For example, this is how it looks in a local vApp, setting category im.analytics.blthanalyticsforbulk to level FATAL
