Release: 17.1 and higher
Component: USRD


1.  Make a backup of the NX_ROOT/site/cfg/logback.xml file

2.  Edit the file NX_ROOT/site/cfg/logback.xml and identify

<root level=""INFO"">
<appender-ref ref=""rollingFileAppender""/>

3.  Change to look like

<root level=""TRACE"">
<appender-ref ref=""rollingFileAppender""/>

4.  Save the file (no restarts required)

5.  Wait 5 minutes - you should see debug logs in the NX_ROOT\log\mail_nxd.log and NX_ROOT\log\maileater_nxd.log files

6.  To reset the logging level back to default, change <root level=""TRACE""> to <root level=""INFO"">  in the NX_ROOT/site/cfg/logback.xml file and save the file (no restarts are needed - change should be effective after 5 minutes)
