Logging behavior change between the Workplace XT 1.1.4 and 1.1.5 installer

Technote (troubleshooting)


The log4j.properties file is not being customized with a path for the log file write location, due to a behavior change between the Workplace XT 1.1.4 and 1.1.5 installers. An additional step is now required to enable logging.

Resolving the problem

To enable logging:

After renaming _log4j.properties to log4j.properties, edit the file to add the path where you want the log files to be written. Change each occurrence of {LOG_FILE_DIR} to a suitable path.

For example, change:




Then, restart the application.
