Your Workspace ONE UEM deployment has several essential, or core, services that enable your deployment to run successfully. These services include the console, device-services, API, and AWCM. If you have issues with any of these core services, VMware provides logging data to help you diagnose the problem.

The core services of Workspace ONE UEM are its foundation, the pieces required for your deployment to run properly and efficiently. If the service you need assistance with does not display here, view the Integrated Component Logging section for an extensive list of integrated services and their log information.

There are two logging levels that proivide different levels of detail. If you are not troubleshooting a service, set the logging level to disabled to reduce use of hardware resources.
  1. In the console, navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Admin > Diagnostics > Logging.
  2. Select any service that needs an increased logging level. Set the service logging to Enabled.
  3. After you finish troubleshooting, revert the logging level back to Disabled to preserve hardware resources.

How to Read a Workspace ONE UEM Log Entry

The ability to read a Workspace ONE UEM log entry is key to succesfully analyzing and troubleshooting any issues you may encounter with your Workspace ONE UEM deployment.

Every log entry contains the following key information,
  1. Date and time for the log entry.
  2. Server identifier for the log entry.
  3. Server communication thread identifier for the log entry.
  4. Device or user identifier for the log entry.
  5. VMware AirWatch internal code for the log entry.
  6. Logging level for the log entry.
  7. Associated service of the log entry.
  8. Log message for the log entry.

Error Log Example

Workspace ONE UEM error logs use the following format:

2017/06/21 19:07:12.243[1]	EX-DS111[2]	11aaabbccc-dddee-1111-22ff-06gggg777777[3]	[0000000-0000000][4]   (14)[5] 	Error[6]	AirWatch.CloudConnector.Client.AccServiceClient.SendRequest[7] 	Received a Failure message from AWCM: Destination not reachable at this moment[8]

Information Log Example

Workspace ONE UEM Information logs use the following format:

2017/09/07 14:46:57.852[1]             EX-DS111[2]           ca9562a7-c87c-4c3b-a1e1-ca35a88555ab[3]               [0000052-0000000][4]   (20)[5]             Info[6]                WanderingWiFi.AirWatch.Console.Web.Controllers.HomeController[7]          Method: WanderingWiFi.AirWatch.Console.Web.Controllers.HomeController.Index; LocationGroupID: 7; UserID: 52; UserName: TEST_USER; Parameters: <N/A>;  69eddd96-9a81-47e9-a78a-dd20c845426b
