You can require administrators to use only the administrative API for enabling verbose messaging by removing the Log Settings window from the administrative console. The log settings are located in the administrative API at /serverSettings/logSettings.

  1. Go to the <pf_install>/pingfederate/server/default/data/config-store directory.
  2. Open the org.sourceid.saml20.domain.mgmt.impl.LogSettingsManagerImpl.xml file in a text editor.
  3. Change the value of the ShowLogSettingsPage parameter to false.
  4. Save your changes.
