       https://docs.bmc.com/docs/smartit1805/working-with-logs-803118661.html. 

    Once you confirm the connection is fine but you still not able to search the catalog request in Smart IT.  

    step 5:  open Browser Developer Tool and check whether you noted any error like ServiceNotSupportedException for call.  Login to Smart IT Console as AR Administrator and access Admin console Configuration

    If you do not see above within Smart IT Admin console, you were missing the entries in Smart IT System Schema for SB Pluggable provider. Please make sure the below records exists in Tenant and tenant_Provider table

    In one such case, above record was missing from customer db. We recreated it as below 

     INSERT INTO [SmartIT].[SmartIT_System_SmartIT].[TENANT_PROVIDER] 
     VALUES ( 1, NEWID(), 'itsm-sbe', 31, 1) 

    Note:  Value 31 (PK) – is specific to environment so it will change based on each env. You can use the next ID available instead of tenant_provider table.

    After insertion of above record, we restarted Smart IT and was able to see it populated in Smart IT Admin console.  

    At this point, we were able to resolve the issue and successfully search DWP Catalog requests from Smart IT as below

    In Short, the logs that helped us narrowed down the issue are as below 

    1. arjavaplugin.log - to confirm whether sbeutil plugin get loaded. 
    2. Browser Developer tool logs accessing Smart IT - This helped us narrow down the call that is failing and point us toward the direction of the provider. 
    3. Smartit.log - This helped us finding out the root cause generating an error.
