Enable client side logging

WebSphere Portal 7.0 has lot of JavaScript code for Page Builder theme, for enabler API, for mashups, iWidgets,.. So if something goes wrong we will need a way to debug the problem on the client side. You can enable client side logging by following these steps


  • Login into WAS Admin console for WebSphere Portal server

  • Go to Resources -> Resource environment providers -> WP CommonComponentConfigService > Custom properties and set value of cc.isDebug property to true


  • Next step is to set trace string, which is same as that of the log trace string that we set for server side logging, but here you will have to set the traceConfig on the client side, setting set of packages for which you want to enable trace like this


  • Once the trace related properties are set verify them in the Admin COnsole like this


  • Save your changes and restart the server



Once the server is restarted you can view the log on the client side, if your using Firefox browser you can see the logs in the console view of Firebug like this




But if your using Internet explorer you will have to install Developer Tools and you can see the logs like this




Important Note: I am using WPS 7.0 and i followed the instructions in the Info center but somehow the trace was not getting enabled, so i did some manual changes to fix this problem
