Exporting Logs to a File

You can export the plug-in logs to a file by modifying the logback.xml file.


  1. Navigate to the TIBCO_HOME\bw\6.3\config\design\logback directory and open the logback.xml file.
    Note: When deploying an application in TIBCO Enterprise Administrator, you need to navigate to the TIBCO_HOME\bw\domains\mydomain\appnodes\myspace\mynode directory to find the logback.xml file.
  2. Add the following node to specify the file location.
    <appender name="FILE" class="ch.qos.logback.core.FileAppender">
            <pattern>%d{HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%thread] %-5level %logger{36}-%msg%n</pattern>

    The file tag defines the location to which the log is exported and the value is the absolute path of the file that is detailed to the file name.

  3. Add the following node to the root node at the bottom of the logback.xml file to enable exporting logs to a file.
    	<appender-ref ref="FILE" />
    For example:
    <root level="DEBUG">
       <appender-ref ref="STDOUT" />
       <appender-ref ref="FILE" />
  4. Save the file.
