Filtering Common Log Messages by Type

The two types of Common Log messages are user and technical. User messages are most useful to business users for debugging process apps. Technical messages are more appropriate for advanced users such as developers, integrators, and support personnel. Usually, you should be able to find the cause of a problem by reading user messages. However, in some cases, you might have to look at technical messages as well.

When Debug Logging is enabled in SBM Composer, only user messages are displayed. To also see technical messages, do the following:
  1. In SBM Application Repository, click Advanced and then click Common Log.
  2. On the Common Log tab, click Settings.
  3. In the Common Log Settings dialog box, select any logging level except user, and then click OK. (The trace logging level is typically used for this purpose.)
Note: If you disable Debug Logging, the Common Logger logging level is reset to error, so only error messages are logged. If you enable Debug Logging, the logging level is reset to user, so only user messages are logged. This overrides any previous configuration in Application Repository, so perform the preceding steps if you need to see technical messages. (For instructions on enabling or disabling Debug Logging, see Using Debug Logging.)

To select message types:

  1. In the Common Log Viewer in SBM Composer, click Set filter. The Message Filter dialog box opens.
  2. Click either User messages only or User and technical messages.
    Tip: It is recommended that business users select User messages only.
  3. Click OK.
