SAP Business One provides a central logging function for system messages for all SAP Business One add-ons. The log files are stored at the temporary folder of your computer at \Local Settings\Application Data\SAP\SAP Business One\Log\Addon\.

For more information about logging, see SAP Add-On Log Files.


  1. From the SAP Business One Main Menu, choose   Administration   Add-Ons   SAP Add-On Log Settings  .

    You can see this menu option only when an SAP add-on is started.

    For more information about starting add-ons, see Starting Add-Ons

  2. In the Severity Level of Log Messages to Record field, select one of the following levels:

    • Error: Only error messages are logged. This is the default setting.

    • Warning: Both errors and warning messages are logged.

    • Information: Errors, warnings, and information messages are logged.

    • Debug 1, 2, 3: Errors, warnings, information, and debug messages are logged.

    The severity levels are also numbered from 1 to 6. The severity level number determinates the information recorded in the log file. The higher the severity level the more information is recorded, where the highest security level is 6.

  3. In the Maximum Number of Log Files to Maintain field, enter the maximum number of log files to be created.

    The default value is 2 per add-on.

  4. In the Maximum Size Per Log File [in Megabytes] field, enter the maximum size of the log file.

    The default value is 1. When the size of a log file exceeds the maximum size, SAP Business One creates a new log file. These files remain as a log history until the number of files exceeds the value you defined in the Maximum Number of Log Files to Maintain field. Then the system overwrites previous files.

  5. To save your settings, choose the OK button.
