You can enable the debug level for user audit log messages to include the log messages in the ui_runtime.log file.


Verify that you have the root user credentials to log in to the vRealize Log Insight virtual appliance.


  1. Navigate to the location /usr/lib/loginsight/application/etc/ and open the configuration file loginsight-config-base.xml in any text editor.
  2. For the appender with the name UI_RUNTIME_FILE, update the Threshold parameter value to DEBUG:
        <appender name="UI_RUNTIME_FILE"
    <param name="Threshold" value="DEBUG"/>
  3. Add a new logger for LoginActionBean with the DEBUG login level:
        <logger name="com.vmware.loginsight.web.actions.misc.LoginActionBean" level="DEBUG"
          appender="UI_RUNTIME_FILE" additivity="false"/>
  4. Save and close the loginsight-config-base.xml file.
  5. Run the service loginsight restart command to apply your changes.
