Enable API Logging on a Live Server

Created by Ezra Weinstein, Modified on Mon, 12 Sep 2022 at 03:14 PM by Hannah Harris

API logging does not happen on a live server. You can explicitly turn it on, but it DOES put a load on the system.


There needs to be a system preference with code “ALLOW_LIVE_API_LOGGING”.


Go to System->Preferences->Preferences and make sure the preference exists. Create it if it doesn’t. It should be a checkbox data type and NOT be client settable or user settable. 


Once you setup the preference go to


System->Preferences->System Preferences and turn it on. Make sure you turn it off right away after you get the information you need.
