Follow

Introduction

This article provides instructions on the data that BP3 Labs support team may ask you to gather for the issues related to Brazos Portal. Examples of such issues would be:

  • Users are not seeing tasks to refresh automatically in Brazos Portal
  • Specific user(s) are not getting their tasks in Brazos Portal
  • Brazos Portal first login gets stuck for some user(s)
  • etc

Server-side Brazos Portal logs in DEBUG mode

  • Goto Brazos Portal Admin page (/TaskPortal/admin.html or Admin link in Brazos Portal)
  • Open Logging tab
  • Change login level to DEBUG and Save -

  • It's important to enable this during the reproduction of the problem. Changes are picked up on the fly/dynamically. So, once you reproduce the problem switch log level back to INFO.
  • Download generated log files from the following directory:
    WAS_HOME/profiles/Managed_node_profile/logs/ApplicationCluster/brazos_portal.*
  • Zip up all the brazos_portal.log files and upload to corresponding BP3 Labs ticket.

Dump of <brazos_portal_schema>.CONFIG table

This table contains all the Brazos Portal configuration values and we need to see a full select from this table to check current settings.
You can just ask your dba or whoever has access to issue a query:

select * from brazos_portal_schema.config

And provide us with the output in a readable format (CSV is preferred).
