    Steps to collect DWP/UX logs in Debug Mode


    Please, follow the below steps:

    1.-  Go to the Tomcat's external-conf  directory.

     NOTE: Tomcat version may vary, please make sure to use yours.

    • C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat8.0\external-conf\
    • /opt/apache/tomcat8.5/external-conf/
    2. - Edit   logback.xml  under the above directory  
    •       Do a search on name="com.bmc.bsm" level="WARN"
    •       Replace to name="com.bmc.bsm" level="DEBUG"
    Note: For previous DWP Versions (MyIT 18.02 and older) To enable/disable debug logging, then edit below line in config.js


    //Log config
        "profile": false,
        "log_level": "DEBUG",
        "log_conf": {

    5. Click on   Network Tab and Select   XHR

    6. Reproduce use case/issue 

    7. Take screenshots/note of the   Request Header and   Response Header with errors, these will be shown in red/yellow colors, i.e. POST 500 or 404 responses. 

            NOTE: If you do know how to capture fiddler log, you can do that instead, and skip steps 4,5 and 7.
