This activation is also essential at the time of reporting a bug or product error to SAP Support Experts (former OSS) for the root cause analysis.
In this blog i want to share with you one of the ways to activate those traces, from my experience the most effective one is by using the NW administrator tool.
It’s very important that you start using this tool as soon as you can, that’s because in the near future it will replace the well known Visual Administrator…….
Ok, lets play:
First at all you have to connect to the NetWeaver Administrator tool by typing the following structure into your browser url field:
http://yourserver.domain:5NN00/nwa, to be able to use all the tools please make sure your credentials are part of Administrators Group
Once you got inside the NWA, go to “Configuration” area
Then go to “Log Configurator
This is the tricky part… once you be into the log configurator area you have to choose the “Show Tracing Locations” to continue….
Ok, now you’re able to change the log severity and activate the tracing level to know exactly what’s going on into while running the model,
the locations you must activate are:
com.sap.visualcomposer ; and
com.sap.portal.vc (select all under this folder)
My recommendation is to change the severity to “ALL” and press the “save configuration” button of course, afterwards you will be able to see the tracing in the latest “defaulttrace” log file.
Hope you find this useful and enjoy modeling in Visual Composer!
