4. Logging Settings
A useful tool for debugging the plugin. It’s recommended to turn it on only for troubleshooting cases and to turn it off right after receiving enough data to analyze issues.
Enable/disable debug mode - toggle to turn it on and off (debug mode affects the performance of the instance, so it’s highly recommended to turn it off after getting all necessary debug info).
Enable/disable internal debug mode - toggle to turn on/off for logging all actions performed with data sources except data export (creating, editing, cloning, changing owner, etc.).
Log File Size Limit - Maximum log file size (from 0 to 100 megabytes).
Save to apply settings
Download logs so you can send them to the Tableau Connector for Jira support team
Select file format (Log or Zip)
In order to minimize debug mode’s impact on the instance, please follow these simple steps:
Create a data source with one selected table for analysis. It’s recommended to enable filtering to reduce data amount to export. See https://aserve.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/TABLEAU/pages/703103225 if you need detailed instructions on how to create a data source.
Go to Logging Settings.
Clear previous logs if any left, set a log file limit, save changes and enable debug mode.
Open Tableau, start data export.
After data export is completed, get back to Logging Settings, disable debug mode and download the file.
At the moment, the output of the following tables is being logged:
