This section provides an overview of the available logging, reporting, and troubleshooting features for PingFederate.
The server.log file represents the primary troubleshooting log. Along with an HTTP trace from the browser, which can be generated from a debugging application like Fiddler, this file is helpful for identifying issues that must be resolved. The following table identifies the available PingFederate logs and summarizes their purposes.
