Enabling additional debug parameters on z/OS

This information helps you debug problems with the integration of IBM® Developer for z Systems® and IBM Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) on z/OS®.
If you have problems with using the IBM Developer for z Systems and Engineering Workflow Management integration, IBM support might ask you to enable some additional debug settings. Instructions for setting up the debug settings follow:
  1. Locate the directory which contains the rsed.envvars configuration file used by the IBM Developer for z Systems Remote System Explorer (RSE) daemon.
  2. Create a file named log4j.properties in the same directory and give it the same Unix System Services (USS) file ownership and permissions as the rsed.envvars file.
  3. Add the following statements or other statements as directed by IBM support to the log4j.properties file:
    log4j.rootLogger=DEBUG, stdout                                          
    log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r %-5p [%0t] %c %3x - %m%n
    log4j.rootCategory=ERROR, A1                                            
    # Set to the minimum for our package (DEBUG)                           
  4. Restart the RSE daemon. A trace file is written to the location specified on the log4j.appender.stdout.file statement in the log4j.properties file.
    Note: To disable the trace, you can delete or rename the log4j.properties file and restart the RSE daemon.
