Steps to enable debug logging for the CA PPM Email Notification process. Before proceeding please check in the CSA if "Detect Log Configuration Changes Automatically" flag is checked or not. If this setting is not checked please review the steps below first as we require you to stop and start the BG and APP services for logging to take effect.
