Message Filter Dialog Box

Use the elements in this dialog box to filter Common Log messages by environment and by timeframe. You can also specify that only messages from failed runs should be displayed. The messages are displayed on the Details tab of the Common Log Viewer.

Element Description
Environment Displays messages from the selected environment.
Since last publish Displays messages since the process app was last published.
Range Displays messages for a specified date and time range.
User messages only Displays user messages only.

User messages are most useful to business users for debugging process apps. Usually, you should be able to find the cause of a problem by reading user messages.

User and technical messages Displays both user and technical messages.

Technical messages are more appropriate for advanced users such as developers, integrators, and support personnel.

When Debug Logging is enabled in SBM Composer, only user messages are displayed. To see technical messages, you must select this option and also 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.)
Show messages from failed runs only Select this check box if you want to see messages only about orchestration workflows whose execution failed. The reason for failure is typically an unhandled fault.
