Checking events generated by the user life-cycle commands

View traces in the log files to get information about the user life-cycle commands that are sent from Profiles to the other HCL Connections™ applications.

About this task

User life-cycle commands are built on top of the event infrastructure. When an update is made to a user using one of the life-cycle commands, a message is sent over the event infrastructure from Profiles to the other applications.

Procedure

To check that the user life-cycle commands are being sent from Profiles to the other applications, complete the following steps.
  1. Enable trace logging for the com.ibm.lconn.lconn.events process in the WebSphere® Application Server.
    For information about how to enable trace logging, see Enabling traces in WebSphere Application Server.
  2. Check the log files for information relating to events.
    Log entries relating to the user life-cycle commands that are sent from Profiles to the other applications are identified with the prefix, com.ibm.lconn.events.*.
    When a user is updated, a message is sent over the event infrastructure to other applications, and the log looks similar to the following.
