How can I turn on Debug logging for WebServices?

When integrating YF it can be difficult to understand why certain calls are failing.

Is there a way to actually trace the calls being made and results returned so we can identify issues sooner?

To enable SOAP/WebServices debug logging, please add the following to your log4j.properties file found in your Yellowfin install directory under /appserver/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF:

#Webservice debug logging
log4j.logger.org.apache.axis.transport.http.HTTPSender=DEBUG
Once added, your log4j.properties will look similar to the following:

This will additional logging capability will add the webservice DEBUG logs to your Yellowfin.log files and includes the full SOAP Envelope passed and returned by the Webservice call.
