BMC Remedy Approval Server debug log

When you select the Approval Debug Mode check box, a log of approval activity is generated. The log is a text file, and is stored in the location you specify in the AP:Admin-ServerSettings form.

After the log is activated, logging starts immediately. The log file is emptied and restarted when you restart BMC Remedy Email Engine or when you reactivate logging after it has been deactivated. Because logging can generate large files, you should plan to use the log for specific purposes, or regularly save and delete your log files.

For information about the logging levels, see Logging levels.

The following output is a sample of the approval information stored in the log file.
