Question:
I'm checking the process engine log and can only see messages of "ERROR" type.
I'd like to see also the "INFO" message for troubleshooting my custom gelscripts.
Answer:
Since CA PPM 15.3 there is a new CSA Setting for Error Logging
 
This allows you to configure the level of logging that you want to see for process GEL scripts using <gel:log>. 
As a default, only errors or fatal logs are persisted in the BPM_ERRORS table. 
Accordingly, only error messages appear on the user interface. 
Messages that are not logged in BPM_ERRORS are not visible. 
You can change the default setting to allow logs for warnings and other informational messages so they also appear.
 
To do this:
Go to the /niku/nu#action:security.logs, "edit configuration" section.
In the Process Engine Persistence Logging section, complete the following field:
"Process Engine Persistence Log Level"
Setting the level to "Info" will give informational messages in the process engine logs.
If “
Detect Log Configuration Changes Automatically” is checked, no bg restart is necessary.
 
For better performance, we recommend that you the keep the logging level at Error.
