Steps To Enable AdminUI Debug Logs

Blog Post created by Osarobo_Idehen Employee on Nov 18, 2016

The Siteminder Administrative UI uses, from R12 SP3, the standard Log4j
PropertyConfigurator configuration file; all logging categories are
prefixed with 'log4j.category' and must have one of the specified log
levels: OFF, FATAL, ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, ALL.

Below examples show the default logging level.
" For Siteminder logging level:

/server/default/deploy/iam_siteminder.ear/user_console.war/META-INF/SiteMind
erLog4j.properties

# The root category for SiteMinder logging.
log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder=WARN

# Useful information. The following categories supply useful information
about the product and connectivity status with the policy server.
log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.webadmin.BuildInfo=INFO
log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.uiagent=INFO

# Tunnel messages. The following categories display communications with the
the policy server.
log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.xps.Connection=OFF
log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.xps.xml=OFF

# Administrative directory. The following categories are used by the
directory for logging information about administrators.
log4j.category.org.apache.directory=ON
log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.directory=DEBUG

# Other categories. Uncomment these categories as needed for additional
logging.
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.framework=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.framework.action=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.framework.tab=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.framework.xps=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.framework.xps.security=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.webadmin=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.webadmin.tabhandler=INFO
#log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.webadmin.tabs=INFO

Change the log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder to DEBUG
Change the log4j.category.com.ca.siteminder.XX to DEBUG, according to your
needs
" For the underlying IAM FrameWork level:

/server/default/deploy/iam_siteminder.ear/config/com/netegrity/config/log4j_
jboss.properties

Change the log4j.category.ims to DEBUG
Uncomment all log4j.category.ims according to your needs
" For JBoss logging:
/server/default/conf/jboss-log4j.xml

In the Limit category section add the following:
<category name="com.netegrity.ims">
<priority value="ALL"/>
</category>

<category name="org.jboss.system.server.Server">
<priority value="INFO"/>
</category>
<category name="com.ca.siteminder.uiagent">
<priority value="ALL"/>
</category>
<category name="com.ca.siteminder.framework">
<priority value="ALL"/>
</category>
<category name="com.ca.siteminder.webadmin">
<priority value="ALL"/>
</category>
<category name="com.ca.siteminder.xps">
<priority value="ALL"/>
</category>
