    Hi Dirk Venken,

    We have installed SAP DATA SERVICES 4.2 SP05,

    Even after Granting the permission “View internal information in log” to Administrators & DS Users, DS Admin users…. Still we get the same error log.

    I’m running with ADMINISTRATOR user account.

    Error log:

    “This message contains some internal system details which have been hidden for security. If you need to see the full contents of the original message, ask your administrator to assign additional privileges to your account.”

    Thanks,

    Ramesh

      I haven’t had the chance to install SP5, yet. But I am not aware of any differences in functionality at this level. Can you double-check whether the permission has been really granted?

    Hi Dirk,

    Is there a definition anywhere of what is considered “internal system details”? Is this determined by BODS or some form of error severity from the database server (we are on SQL Server 2008)?

    This seems like complete over-kill to me. For instance we hit this yesterday and the true error was an “invalid column name” on a target table. Why hide this from a developer?

    Hi Dirk,

    @Dirk Venken

    we have come across the same issue for one of our job, where in still we are not able to see the exact error message after applying the workaround which you have suggested.

    DS- version is DS4.2 SP04

    IPS – 4.1 SP5

    I’m running with ADMINISTRATOR user account.


    Error – “

    Function call <*****> failed, due to error <*****>: <*****>. This message contains some internal system details which have been

    hidden for security. If you need to see the full contents of the original message, ask your administrator to assign additional

    privileges to your account.


    In KB Article – 1923264, they have mentioned the below step, not sure where to check this –


    The Operating System user can see the error message in the log file at the OS level. The rows in the log file denoted with (R) contain the actual error, while rows denoted with (E) contain the “hidden for security” warning seen in Designer.”


    Awaiting for your earliest reply.


    @ Maurice Hickey – how did you find out the true error ?

      No, I am sorry. At first sight, the settings look ok.

      Are you sure the user running the job belongs the group? Try to add the rights directly to the user and see what happens.

        Thanks Dirk for the reply.

        Yes the user belongs to the group.

        Tried the option suggested by you, still cant fetch the internal error message.

        please check the below screen shots, hope i have followed what you intended me to do .Capture.JPG

    I’m on 4.2 sp 8 patch 1 and I’m getting exactly the same issue that “Shashidhar Koppal” talked about. I’m running the job with the ‘administrator’ user and that user has full control and those permissions are set like he explained. Any more news on this?

      I have no clue. This has always worked for me. And this method has been officially documented in SAP note 2128861 – How to enable error codes obfuscated in job execution log – Data Services 4.2.

      You may have to create a support incident.
