Provides instructions for turning on detailed Workpoint logging that will help troubleshoot issues with Identity Manager Workflow.


  1. Edit the file in \IdentityMinder.ear\config

    Uncomment these lines:, WSSysOut,
    Replace the WARN with DEBUG above.

    Also uncomment all these lines:
    # WSSysOut is set to be a FileAppender which outputs to System.out.
    #log4j.appender.WSSysOut.Target=System.out #log4j.appender.WSSysOut.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
    #log4j.appender.WSSysOut.layout.ConversionPattern=%d [%t] %-5p %c %x - %m%n 
    # WSFile1 is set to be a RollingFileAppender which outputs to WorkPoint.log# It will save the last 5 files and create a new file after the file size# hits 1 Meg.
    #log4j.appender.WSFile1.MaxBackupIndex=5 #log4j.appender.WSFile1.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
    #log4j.appender.WSFile1.layout.ConversionPattern=%d [%t] %-5p %c %x - %m%n
    This will help generate the Workpoint.log.
  2. Edit the \IdentityMinder.ear\config\ as follows:

    Uncomment these lines:
    # wp.log4j.appender.list=GMLog1, GMLog2# wp.log4j.root.level=WARN
    This will help generate the WorkpointGeneralMonitor.log.
