E-PIA: Trace Not Generated When Trace Flags Are Enabled on Tracesql Page or &trace=y (Doc ID 2751470.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 10, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.58 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Traces are not generated when Developers set the trace flags on the Trace SQL page or by using &trace=y. Users are allowed to select the trace options and click Save, with no errors presented, but no traces are generated under PS_HOME/appserv/<domain>/LOGS/.

However, enabling the trace SQL option in the psappserv.cfg file creates traces as expected.

Steps to replicate:

  1. Navigate to PeopleTools -> Utilities -> Debug -> TraceSQL
  2. Set Trace Flags
  3. Save


  1. Append &trace=y to the login URL
  2. Set the trace flags
  3. Login

Results: No traces are generated under PS_HOME/appserv/<domain>/LOGS/.
